I often have objects that extend beyond the edge of the canvas. For example, if I am making a repeat pattern, the elements hang off the edge, and then get mirrored on the other side of the canvas. Additionally, I often put objects outside the canvas basically as a way to set them aside for a minute while I work on something else. It’s important to me to be able to see the things that are off the edge.
Most of the time I can, but then sometimes the whole canvas starts acting like a mask - any overhang disappears. If I can find it and select it, it will reappear, but it disappears again as soon as it is unselected.
This disappearing act happened suddenly today. I’m assuming I accidentally toggled some setting somewhere, but I can’t find any way to toggle it back. (I thought I had it when I found the mask/unmask settings by right-clicking the layer in the lefthand menu, but both are greyed out, so that has not solved it.)
Can you please help me figure out how to set it up so that I can see the objects and pieces of objects that are off the canvas?
