Tips and Tricks

A minimum screen size of 768px is required.
A mouse is recommended.
The larger the screen size, the larger the canvas will be.
To extend your usable canvas beyond it's visible area:

  1. Place a horizontal line at the top edge of the canvas, the width that you want your usable canvas to be, and disable dragging to lock it in place.
  2. Place a vertical line at the left edge of the canvas, the height that you want your usable canvas to be, and disable dragging to lock it in place.
