Canvas Size Tab

The Canvas Size Tab contains options for altering the print margins of a drawing. The tab will appear as shown below when selected in the Sidebar.

The Scale header located in the bottom right corner can be toggled from Scale to Points per Unit, as shown below:

Values displayed in the Canvas Size Tab default to Inches; however, alternative units of measurement (i.e. centimeters, millimeters, and pixels) can be chosen as the Canvas Unit.

Regardless of the chosen Canvas Unit, alternative units of measurement (i.e. millimeters, centimeters, meters, kilometers, yards, feet, etc.) can be entered into a field and will be automatically converted to the equivelent value for the current unit selection.

For example, if 1 foot (1 ft) is entered for the Top Margin when the Canvas Unit is set to Pixels, then it will be automatically converted to Pixels after pressing the Enter Key on your keyboard or selecting another item in TouchDraw.

Click on the corresponding Canvas Size Attribute name to learn more about what the option does.
