Bug Description

What I really love about Microsoft Paint on Windows is to have a re-size canvas option (see attached picture). Actually it is must have feature in MS-Paint because there is no crop image option, but it would be nice if this re-size canvas option is available in Pinta.

I don't know how hard is this to implement. Maybe it can be done in similar way as:
1. you already know where mouse position is - you have this info in last icon from toolbar.
2. then just use "Rectangle Select" from position 0,0 and the mouse position (from step 1)
3. use "Crop to selection" from toolbar.

Resize Canvas using screen edges / hot corners would be much useful utility. Please consider implementing this. Thanks.

Hi,
Pinta is dead project. Latest stable version was released on March 1st 2015: https://pinta-project.com/pintaproject/pinta/releases/1-6

Maintainer time to time just merges fixes someone else did: https://github.com/PintaProject/Pinta/commits/master
but there is no active development for years.

Discussion group: http://groups.google.com/group/pinta?hl=en is dead end.
Bug reporting system is full of "new" bugs: https://bugs.launchpad.net/pinta/+bugs?field.searchtext=&orderby=-datecreated&search=Search&field.status%3Alist=NEW&field.status%3Alist=CONFIRMED&field.status%3Alist=TRIAGED&field.status%3Alist=INPROGRESS&field.status%3Alist=FIXCOMMITTED&field.status%3Alist=INCOMPLETE_WITH_RESPONSE&field.status%3Alist=INCOMPLETE_WITHOUT_RESPONSE&assignee_option=any&field.assignee=&field.bug_reporter=&field.bug_commenter=&field.subscriber=&field.structural_subscriber=&field.tag=&field.tags_combinator=ANY&field.has_cve.used=&field.omit_dupes.used=&field.omit_dupes=on&field.affects_me.used=&field.has_patch.used=&field.has_branches.used=&field.has_branches=on&field.has_no_branches.used=&field.has_no_branches=on&field.has_blueprints.used=&field.has_blueprints=on&field.has_no_blueprints.used=&field.has_no_blueprints=on

I am sad this project has no active development anymore. I am willing to help - with software testing, but I am not a programmer.
Regards
