Render beyond the canvas?

Is it possible to see objects beyond the canvas that is rendered? For example If I draw something outside the canvas area, you can still click on it, and select it outside of the canvas area, but you cannot see the object. You can only see the vector points and outline, while it is selected. You cannot see the color, etc. Is there anyway to make it so you can see everything beyond the canvas? It would make drawing, composition and animation so much easier.

Appreciate your help. Thanks.


As I know, it is not possible.

I suggested exactly that in year 2013: Making Synfig easier to use brainstorming

I think it would be really useful. Yeah.

Is there any update on this ? Is it possible in latest version ?

Not so it would seem. There is a bug report about this but nothing changed yet
