Extended Viewer as an option to be enabled for 2D rather than only 3D
The new extended viewer is a great addition to the program, nice being able to see outside of the viewer frame! It would be amazing if this was an option for a 2D workflow, there's definite benefits for being able to have vision of what's outside the frame
A workaround for those who like this as well, you can create a simple 3D layer and hide it. It will allow you to still use the draft 3D mode to have the extended view enabled for your 2D layers. Not sure what impact it would have on performance though having 3D enabled!
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we have moved this feedback to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests are able to live separately in that forum.
This move is happening in part to acknowledge that we haven't been responsive enough on UserVoice, and are combining our forums to help remedy that. Check your profile on the Adobe Support Community to see any migrated posts that you've created or commented on. If you had an item on UserVoice that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

Hi Josh - so glad you are enjoying the Extended Viewer addition! You are not the only one who has sent in this request, and I will definitely add your vote to the pile. But I am also happy that you have already figured out the workaround - as long as you have Draft 3D enabled, you will see all layers outside the comp boundary.
Thank you for your feedback!
