6.12. Fit Canvas to Layers

The Fit Canvas to Layers command adapts the canvas size to the size of the largest layer in the image, in both width and height.

When you create or open an image, the canvas size is defined as the image size and remains unchanged if you add new layers. If you add a layer larger than the canvas, only the area limited by the canvas will be visible. To show the whole layer, use this command.
