The main area in Sketch where we do all our drawing is the canvas.
And the canvas is infinite in size.
This means there's no fixed bounds or
dimensions giving you complete freedom on how to set up your drawing area.
Moving around the canvas is simply done by scrolling anywhere
when your cursor is inside the drawing area using the MacBook's trackpad.
Alternatively, you can hold down the spacebar on your keyboard and click and
drag on the canvas to move it around.
You can enable rulers by clicking on the View icon in the toolbar and
selecting Show Rulers from the menu.
These will appear along the left side and the top of the canvas.
And they'll show you where your layers are in the document.
Whenever you're working on a project in Sketch, it's likely that you'll want to
zoom into your document in order to see it in more detail.
Or perhaps zoom out, to see the entire canvas.
This is something that is quite important, so there are many ways to zoom in Sketch.
The most obvious way is by pressing on the plus and
minus buttons next to the magnifying glass icon in the toolbar.
The zoom level will multiply as you zoom in and divide as you zoom out.
The maximum zoom level is 64000% and the minimum is just 1.
You can also click on the icon or
hold down the Z key on your keyboard to enable the tool.
Click to zoom in.
Or hold option along with z and click to zoom out.
As well as clicking to zoom in and out with this tool, you can also click and
drag a box on the canvas whilst holding z.
That will zoom into the selection.
But my personal favorite option for zooming is by using the keyboard.
It is done just simply by pressing Command and plus to zoom in and
Command and minus to zoom out.
Press Command and zero to return to 100% zoom.
Dont worry if you feel like that is too much to remember.
You can access these commands and
see their shortcuts at the top of the view menu in the menu bar.
It will quickly become second nature to you
