Description richlv 2005-01-11 14:08:22 UTC
open a new text document, enable drawing toolbar. choose rectangle (though this 
is true for all drawing objects).

try to draw it exactly at the page corner.
as the cursor is moved out of page are in one dimension, other dimension 

the object should "slide" by page border just as it does when it's resized and 
cursor goes out of page area.

MRU->AMA: It is not possible to start drawing outside the page. The drawing
cursr is shown outside the page and IMO (and also as described by richlv) the
drawing process should then start, when the cursor re-enters the page area if
mouse botton is pressed. This can be enhanced for next OO.
