Help window stuck on taskbar


Recommended Posts

Using Affinity Photo on Windows 10, pressed F1 for help, loads up window. All fine. But now the help window is stuck in taskbar and cannot open. Closed and restarted. Opened up Designer and Publisher, and help is fine on those two. Still stuck on Affinity Photo. Any advice? I was trying to find out the clip to canvas toggle option. Image outside of canvas not showing, I want it to show, so two queries. Any help and advice appreciated.

No advice from me on why the Help isn't opening for you in Photo.

However, good the question you were trying to answer: there is no "clip to canvas" option in Photo.

Items outside the canvas will be invisible, unless you expand the canvas to include them. Document > Clip Canvas (or possibly Unclip Canvas) would do that for you.

There's a trick with righ-clicking and using the option "move" or making the object move by sliding on the border or the panel… it always happens at work with Acrobat opening on the landscape monitor instead of the one in portrait position… and with the top out of reach.

But that's like shorcut… I can do them without thinking when I'm sitting, and can't tell or do them when I'm up.

F11 won't put it on full screen?

‘Clip Canvas’ clips the canvas to the document size, so ‘Unclip Canvas’ is the more generally applicable option (because it stops the canvas being clipped if the document size is too small).

But the help seems to be an independent window, it never was clipped to the app when opened.

The question about the Help window misbehaving was secondary to Kiarian's real question about whether Photo has a "Clip to Canvas" View Mode. Alfred and I are answering that question :)
