Can't seem to find how to change the canvas size in AFD.

This can be done in the Document Setup dialog, under the file menu -

Do I have to change the whole document and then resize the work?

When resizing documents, you have the option to scale the objects to match the new canvas size, or to anchor the objects at their current size to be manually resized after changing the canvas.

This is covered further in the following helpfile -

I hope this helps :)

Please note -

I am currently out of the office for a short while whilst recovering from surgery (nothing serious!), therefore will not be available on the Forums during this time.

Should you require a response from the team in a thread I have previously replied in - please Create a New Thread and our team will be sure to reply as soon as possible.

Many thanks!

Have you no File > Document Setup?

If you are using Artboards then you will have to change the size of the individual Artboard(s) instead.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.4 
Affinity Designer 2.4.1 | Affinity Photo 2.4.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.4.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
