Resizing Artboard also resized layers inside of it.

Recommended Posts

First of all, great updates supporting artboards.


Although, it was hard to find where the artboard button/menu is w/o searching for this forum.

I totally agree this thread about the artboard menu position.




Back to my topic:

After creating an artboard and put layers inside of it, I decided to change the size of the artboard.

What happened is all layers dimension inside of the artboard also changes accordingly; text layers get squished and shapes also changing.



Move artboard with all sub layers altogether.

Resizing artboard should not affect dimensions of child layers.


What do you think?

Hi sungl,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You can resize the Artboard without affecting the layers inside if you use the Artboard Tool instead of the Move Tool. Click on the small arrow near the Move Tool icon to access the Artboard Tool.
