How do I magnify and scroll PAST the edges


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am not an artist/designer/etc... I use paint.net to build very basic html and css test images. Please excuse the noob questions. While I am open to suggestions...fancy advise is probably wasted on me. :( Ok...on to my problem :

I often find that I need to create images with odd dimensions (eg 900x50) for a title bar...etc... Often I need to zoom in quite close, and work on the left/right edges of the image(pixel by pixel)...however...when I do this...the edges seem to get "stuck" to the left/right edge of the screen... I can't scroll further along (past the edge of the image)... and bring the edges into the centre(for easy editing)..

Is there a way to do this? Thanks. :)

I don't think there is a way to do this, you may have to make do. I would say that this makes a good feature request, except I believe this has been brought to Rick's attention before.

Perhaps you could start with a canvas size larger than you need. Use the wand to select the "dead" areas of the canvas, then invert the selection to make sure you're only working within the bounded area. Select the image before saving and "crop to selection."

When computers become self-aware and take over the world, the porn bots will get much, MUCH worse.

From the popular features request:

Scrolling past the edge of the canvas when zoomed in -- Right now when you zoom in on the image, you can only scroll to the edge of the image. It can be inconvenient because then you have no space between the image and the scroll bars. Implementing this is dependent on some other "plumbing" work that should be done for the image canvas' rendering, and this will be taken into account when that work is being done. No ETA though.
