I can't see the drawing area

Post by HannuriYu » 25 Jan 2019, 00:05

I set the drawing area 2times bigger than camera view. but even if I set that when I make new project, I still can't see the drawing area. is there any way to show drawing area? I can't find anything related with it.

Do you have you have your Navigator Panel Open? Windows - > Show -> Navigator

You can see the red square of the navigator to see where your drawing area is at. Also can hit the diagonal arrows to auto fit the drawing area, to move the area of the drawing so you can see it.

Can ask how big is your document? What's the resolution size for it, it sounds pretty vague.

In the navigator panel, you see buttons labelled 1 and F. 1 shows you each pixel, F scales your project down to the available window size. If you have a project smaller than your available window, it's scaled up instead - I guess that's happening on your side.

Open Navigator and play around a bit. I assigned keyboard shortcuts to both commands to easily switch between views.

Oh I meant, when I set the new project. I set the drawing area should be 2 times bigger than camera view in ratio which you can check in the photo copy I attach. I can't see the extra drawing area that I could draw more out of canvas.

Look in the Display Settings panel see if Camera is checked and adjust the opacity of the View Finder.

I made a New Project with the same dimensions as shown in your screenshot (1920 x 1080 + 200%) and this is what I see :

Make sure you have the Camera selected in the Display Settings (Windows > Show > Display Settings) .

Click the camera icon in the Main Panel and it will appear.

See the box to the left of the 24 FPS in the play back bar under the project window? Click on that box to enable the camera view play back.
