    Border issues when rotating

    I'm not sure if this is closer to a bug or a feature request, but if the canvas is rotated you're unable to zoom into corners as the out-of-bounds detection kicks in. Usually not a problem, until you have a line going at an odd angle your wrist just refuses to go.

    This is one we're aware of indeed. If the canvas is wide aspect, or is started in a situation where it is about as big as the ArtRage window, then rotated to say 45 degrees or something like that, bits of the canvas will be protruding outside of the Window. Your best best at this point would be to hold down the spacebar and drag the canvas into a more accessible location. You can reset the rotation and position from the top menu if you want to later.

    Hope that's of some help.

    Nono. The problem is, you can't. The corners of the canvas will be inaccessible because ArtRage will behave as if they are out of bounds (ie, drag stops working).

    It's simple to reproduce; just create a new image several times larger than the display (I can't really tell if it's a hard resolution thing or a screen resolution to image resolution ratio, but with me it happens with a 4000x3000 image) and paint a corner for easy visibility. Center it on screen and zoom in to, say, 500%. Rotate the image. Now try and pan around it; what usually happens is that the display will get moved farther into the canvas and not allow you to pan back without resetting the rotation or zooming back out.
    If it doesn't happen then rotate it around a bit more and try again; it seems hit and miss.

    Hi Geoff,

    Got it, sorry! Right, in our bug list we also have down for 2.2 "Take a wide aspect canvas, rotate to about 45 degrees. Now zoom in. Note as you zoom in, even if you pan, you start to be unable to view the corners of the image." You aso get that same behavior with the steps you describe, so I've added that for clarity.

    This is something we have noted down to look into for a future update. Sorry for the inconvenience there.
