Within the side palette, SampleBoard’s canvas settings enable you to change the size (dimensions) of your canvas by allowing you to adjust the width and/or height to suit your moodboard.

You can adjust the canvas size at any time during your creation. So for instance, if you started with a landscape orientation, but then decide portrait or square would be a better choice, you can easily change the canvas width and height by changing the pixels.

How to instantly resize a canvas

  • Click the Canvas Settings icon on the right-hand side toolbar

  • Select 'fixed' layout

  • Enter the width and height in pixels

  • Your canvas will instantly change size

  • You may need to zoom out if you're new size is much larger that your previous size using the zoom toggles on the bottom toolbar
