Maybe this is the same situation I have.
I have a picture (picture 1).
I expand the size of the canvas to make room to copy another picture beside the
original (picture 2).
Picture 2 is copied from an open GIMP image and pasted into the enlarged canvas
area of picture 1.
Picture 2 is invisible if it dragged outside the bounds of picture 1 into an
open area of the canvas.
I can't figure out why that would be a useful design characteristic and how to
change the situation to make the imported pictures visible on the expanded
Probably something simple.
