Cannot resize canvas

Hello, I am new to Figma and It’s been quite hard to find a way to resize the canvas (like making it longer for scrolling for example) without having to resize the elements on it. I cannot select the canvas layer individually from the layer menu and I haven’t been successful in finding articles about it neither. Thank you!

  1. Learn about Constraints — they are what makes elements resize differently based on the parent frame size.
  2. Hold Cmd/Ctrl while resizing — it will ignore all Constraints in the frame.
