Trimming canvas with visual feedback

Recommended Posts

Currently it's possible to resize the canvas by adjusting its width and height numbers in the document settings. It would be far more useful if changing these numbers would add a gray overlay that acts like a preview of the new canvas size, so that when confirming the new size I know what I will get. Currently one has to try and undo if the new size is not the desired one.

It would also be useful if this overlay could be dragged so that one can define how much of each border is trimmed.

The common work around is to draw a rectangle the size you want larger than the canvas, select unclip canvas then clip canvas to the new size, finally remove the rectangle.
