Shape object & dimensions

Post by RogerMc »

Greetings!

Curious why a rectangle of size 100x100mm positioned at (0,0) would occupy space extending to coordinates (101,101). Seems that the canvas also can not be shrunk smaller than (102,102).

Hello Roger,

could you check the settings for padding in the app's preferences (Preferences > Canvas)?

Cheers,

Thanks - the File > Size to Fit function should reduce the size to 101mm for the 100mm rectangle
(there's a small fudge factor applied for internal reasons).

Not sure why entering the size via layout dimensions will reset the size to a slightly bigger value - I'll look into it!

Cheers,
