Canvas increase?@!#@$#%


Hi guys,
Is there any roadmap for a bigger canvas? it seems crazy we can’t have things as big as we need them.

i.e. Creating a sitemap extends outside the canvas and then you can’t export it without dragging it around and doing all sorts of wierdness just to get a decent export.

Please please add a feature to the next version to just let the canvas be as big as the user needs.


Hi @thomen,

Thanks for reaching out about this one.

The maximum size for each Mockups canvas is 4056x4056 pixels since this is the maximum size that Adobe AIR apps allow. The good news is that we are getting closer to the native version of our app and if that allows us to increase the canvas size, we will do it.

In the meantime, here is a workaround that may help.

Please let us know if you need anything else, we’ll be here to help! :slight_smile:


This has been a significant problem for me as well! Some clients request showing all large number of wireframes on a single screen, and with enough screens, Balsamiq just isn’t able to do that.


We absolutely hear everyone when it comes to this. It’s on the top of our list of features for the non-flash/air version of the app.

Stay tuned… :slight_smile:
