Lasso masking. SLAM to the left - SLAM to the right!

    I open a picture, Select the lasso, I start masking an area, but part of the
    area is off screen. When I try to mask this part off screen, it SLAMS all
    the way to the edge of the photo. When I try to go back to the area that I
    was masking...thus having to go off screen on the other side of the picture,
    it SLAMS over to the other edge.

    How can I fix this?????? How can I slow this down???

  2. Is that a case of "snapping to document bounds", maybe? That can be
    checked in the View menu under Snap.

    As you get near the edge press the space bar to get the pan tool and
    drag the picture into the window. Release to return to the lasso.
