How to move canvas?

Postby eDee » Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:52 am

I enlarge the canvas so I could see what I was doing, but I can't move the canvas over to see the part of the image that I need to see.

The scroll at the bottom only adjusts the colors and the mouse only adjust up and down. How do I adjust the canvas right and left so I can see what I need to edit?

Thank you.

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

You can also use your mouse wheel to click on canvas and drag around, if you use such a device ;)

Or use the arrow keys, or scroll with scrollwheel/keyboard: https://inkscape.org/en/doc/keys092.html#d0e911

You're welcome, alaicarich :) Yes, it's an important page. If you look into the Help menu in Inkscape, you will also find a link to that page there (and even more helpful links and files).
