Hi there, I'm new to Photo (experienced photoshop user, though).

It seems by default when using the brush tool it will automatically crop pixels that would be drawn outside the canvas. This means when drawing a soft edged shape that extends beyond the canvas for instance, if you want to move that shape later the edges of it that ended up outside the canvas aren't there and were never drawn. I'd like a way to turn this off and have the brush draw outside the canvas as it works in photoshop. Is this possible?

Use the \ key to show canvas clipped objects, oops that's for Affinity Designer

No. Make a larger sized canvas and throw down some guides, lock them and that is your edge. You can then paint away on layers and shift them a bit.
