    Difference Between Trim and Fit Canvas

    Level 7
      Prompted by my earlier request, if you do not "delete objects when
      cropping", then I have not picked up on the difference between trim and fit
      canvas. What is it?

      Thanks,
      Tony

          I hadn't realized this either - the only difference that I can see is
          that 'Fit Canvas' will resize the canvas to include areas outside the
          existing canvas; Trim will resize to the current size or smaller.

          Try this experiment:
          - Create a new canvas
          - Draw a shape on it - any will do - which partially overlaps the canvas
          - Modify > Canvas > Trim Canvas
          - ^Z (undo)
          - Modify > Canvas > Fit Canvas
