brushes get cut off at edges

Is there any way to avoid having a brush be cut off by the document edge when you place it? It's annoying when you want to move it that it's been cut off. I know one way is to place it in the center when you stamp it, and then move it - but that doesn't help if the brush is larger than the document. Only other thought I had would be to stamp into a larger document and then move to the smaller document - but if I do that, I may as well just work with .png files.


Just thought I'd ask in case there is a way to handle this that I don't know about. Thanks!

    Say what?

    What has all this to do with png-files specifically?


    As I understand it a blank Layer assumes the dimensions of the document. So if you paint beyond those dimensions you paint on nothing and color doesn’t stick on nothing, so to speak.

    If you force the Layer to be bigger (for example by creating a 1px frame or even just pixels on diametrally opposing corners and then transforming that Layer to 200%) you can paint up to the Layer’s extremes in the affected dimensions.
