Okay, that was exactly what I was looking for, but I never would have
found it on my own. I really wish they'd included it as a menu command
as well.

(Now is it my fault or the software's fault that I couldn't find it on
my own?)

But now I'm very upset because all the time and effort I put into
creating my GWN turned out to be for nothing.

Hi David

I think Hypersnap is what RoboScreenCapture comes from. So maybe the
process is the same or similar?

It's a bit odd as there is no menu command that seems to allow this. But

in RSC you do this by clicking an icon in the palette. I'll upload an
image for reference.

Click that icon and you get a dialog allowing you to specify new
dimensions. It doesn't seem to affect anything with the image. Only the

Hopefully this helps a bit... Rick :)

me how - if you can do it at all - to increase the canvass size for an
existing image - i.e., to insert something in the middle or at the
bottom. All the image commands seem to concern increasing the size of
the image, which isn't what I want. I've searched the help and found
nada. I'm wondering if "canvass size" is the wrong term. The only other
term I can think of is "image size," but I don't want to change the size
of the actual image.
