My guess is your stage size is larger than the actual stage container that fits the app window.
There is a Center Stage function/icon to the lower left of the stage - it looks like 'Scope' view icon.
If you still find that your stage does not fit the app stage viewer, then resort to the Stage resizer also to the lower left or Ctl/Command + Plus Key or Ctrl/Command + Minus Key.
If you reread my original post I have already tried the center stage button, this does nothing but center vertically, not horizontally. The stage is 125px X 125px, very small. I see no method to resize the stage container other than setting the stage size on the top left properties area.
The zoom stage in/out does not fix this issue. It simply zooms in/out but does not center the stage so I still can barely see whats going on to the left side of the stage.
The drag bar that should be at the bottom of the stage window is magically not there, the bar on the right is there. This appears to be some sort of bug.
Okay this is definitely some kind of bug or something that I have somehow done to the working file.
I created a new file just to see if the issue is in a new file and the drag bar at the bottom is now there.
However when I reopen my working file my drag bar disappears.
If you would like I can share the file so you can see what I'm talking about.
You can immediately see it when you open the file.
Yes there is something amiss with this particular file. If I create a new one, the same size as yours, I get the hor/ver scrolls nd the stage centers.
How do you go about submitting a bug or creating a ticket for this issue?
Well, we do monitor the forums when time permits, but the file was gone from Dropbox when I went to try to reproduce it myself. The best way to get a bug surfaced to the team is to post it to the forums.

Thanks for the response. I have reposted the dropbox file, wasn't aware that this was the place to do it.
This is currently the only file it is happening on, I don't know how the situation originated however.
