You might find the panel area you assigned isn't large enough to work on. Fortunately, you can adjust the size of the panel layer pretty easily.

Follow these steps to scale the panel layer up or down:

1. From the Layers palette, select the panel layer you want to adjust.

2. From the main menu, choose Layer: Scale Panel Layer.

The panel layer displays four adjustment points, as shown in Figure 7-6.

3. With your mouse or stylus, click one of the adjustment points and drag along the canvas to resize.

4. Repeat as necessary with the other adjustment points.

5. When you're happy with the new size of the panel layer, press Enter/Return.

Manga Studio adjusts the panel layer, and the adjustment points disappear, as shown in Figure 7-7.

ejWNW if you're scaling down a panel layer, keep in mind that the image layers within it won't scale. Scaling affects only the canvas size of the panel layer. Any layers within it are just cropped down. Don't worry that you could lose any information, though; anything cropped is restored if you scale up the panel layer.


Moving a panel layer works the same way as if you were moving any other layer type. Follow these steps to move a panel layer:

1. On the Tools palette, select the Move Layer tool.

2. On the Layers palette, highlight the panel layer you wish to move.

3. Using your mouse or stylus, click the panel layer and drag along the canvas to your desired placement.
