Increasing background size

I'm in the process of my first creation using the software. It's a deckplan in Cosmographer. I used the mirror option for doing the hull, but I didn't quite make the background big enough, and one side is cut off. How can I make the background larger to fit the entire deckplan inside?

  • Perfect! Thank you!

  • Well, that didn't quite work.

    It made the background area bigger, but the portion that is still off the drawing area remains off of it. I tried selecting the hull and moving it, but that left everything else behind (bulkheads, furniture etc). I selected it all in a box, but that just moved everything up, including the drawing area, so the one part is still cut off.

    Drop into the layers dialog and set the background and map border layers as frozen, that should let you move the rest easier since stuff on frozen layers can't be selected.

    Also remember that you can control-click to deselect stuff, so when you select everything using a window selection like that, if you have undesirable elements as part of the selection, simply use control-click to remove them from the selection before proceeding with the command.

  • Thanks! That got it moved. I have to redraw the section that was cut out, but that hopefully won't be too hard.
