"Frame size too large" prompt, lift this limitation?

I didn’t wanna outline manually. So the plan was to make a quick outline (Stroke FX) of the item in a different layer, flatten the effect, make a brush of it, then delete the layer, and draw it back to what I was working on.
But then I was met with this prompt:

image

Current Canvas size: 2400x2064 (16x16 px, 150x129 tiles)
Project type: Tilemap
PMNG ver. 7.2.7.0
Win 7 64bit

IDK if it’s possible, but can we have this limitation be removed?

here’s 2 ways to pull of what you’re attempting (I think). no manual drawing required.

Selection > Modify
make your dupe layer, create selection from alpha, selection > modify > outside, fill new selection.

or

Brush > Border
make dupe layer, capture entire frame as brush, brush > border > outside invert, draw brush where need be (possibly setting the brush grip if needed in order to place accurately)

I’ve tried both methods and they are great workarounds.
Especially the 2nd one, having a shortcut for it makes it a 1-click solution, too!

Thanks Mathias!
