Can you make objects visible that are dragged off page?

Recommended Posts

This is a pretty basic question that may have been answered before: objects, text, etc disappear when they are dragged off the page. I find it useful to put objects off to the side while I am constructing a figure, but can't figure out whether I can select a setting to make objects always visible off the page or that this is not supported in AD. Thanks!

Hi Toxlab,

 

If you go to View > View Mode you should see an option for Clip To Canvas turning this off will allow you to see objects you have dragged off of the page :)

 

Thanks

By default (I think) the backslash ( \ ) is assigned as a keyboard shortcut for toggling Clip to Canvas on & off. This makes it pretty easy to show or hide off-canvas items on the fly as needed.

I had forgotten there are roughly a zillion different Apple keyboards, not to mention all the Windows ones. I use an English Apple one with a numeric keypad, so for me the backslash key is the unshifted one just above the Return key. That is a lot easier to use than with a keyboard requiring the three finger option-shift-7 key press, but the shortcut can be changed to whatever you want.
