Width and height properties of the canvas UI


#1

I’m playing around with the canvas UI in App Lab for extension activities for my students. If I change the width and height properties of the canvas under the Design window, it does not change the physical size of the canvas but (I think) changes the scaling of the coordinate system used in canvas (the canvas bounds?). Other than dragging the lower-right hand corner of the canvas in the design view, is there a way to change the physical size of a canvas and the canvas bounds at the same time?

I was able to duplicate this while playing around in AppLab myself. It doesn’t seem to happen before I run the app and draw on the canvas. I will report it to the team so they can take a look. You can also report ‘buggy’ behavior using the report bug on the menu in the upper right corner.

Happy computing,
