View Full Version : Resize Painting/Crop Expand Canvas menu and window text change

Consider changing the menu option text and the window headings to be:

1. Resize Painting (Including Contents)

2. Crop / Expand Canvas (Excluding Contents)

I did not really understand this until I dug into the AR5 manual. It may seem straightforward once you learn it but for new people, this may help them visualize this quicker.

I think that might actually confuse people more - we would have to explain what 'contents' meant! (You solve one problem, cause another...)

Painting: The entire painting, including canvas and contents.
Canvas: just the background canvas/paper, ignoring the paint contents.

Because the user is not in painting mode, then put a “*Hint: text” embedded in the lower portion of the window? Would it look pretty? Nope. Would it now be evident? I think so!

Give it some thought and Thanks Hannah!
