hello Richard,
While playing around "Symbiosis" of ViewBox and Canvas I stumbled across a weird behavior of Canvas.
Eg., both ViewBox and Canvas are (Grid.Row="1"). I've got "Row1" dimensions and made a Canvas (Sketch inside) with exactly same dimensions. Then I put it into a ViewBox. Yes, as I wrote yesterday this "Symbiosis" keeps position and scales controls. That's true.
However, I noticed one weirdness. I colored Canvas and when I maximized window (1920x1080) I had seen that Canvas hadn't overlapped entire width of the window. There were two pretty wide, vertical non-colored "columns", to the left and right of colored Canvas.

P.S. I've tried to play with Canvas' height and width, to no avail. It just disappears, if it has no dimensions.
