The main area in Sketch where we do all our drawing is the canvas. 0:00 And the canvas is infinite in size. 0:05 This means there's no fixed bounds or 0:08 dimensions giving you complete freedom on how to set up your drawing area. 0:10 Moving around the canvas is simply done by scrolling anywhere 0:15 when your cursor is inside the drawing area using the MacBook's trackpad. 0:19 Alternatively, you can hold down the spacebar on your keyboard and click and 0:25 drag on the canvas to move it around. 0:29 You can enable rulers by clicking on the View icon in the toolbar and 0:37 selecting Show Rulers from the menu. 0:42 [BLANK_AUDIO] 0:45 These will appear along the left side and the top of the canvas. 0:51 And they'll show you where your layers are in the document. 0:56 Whenever you're working on a project in Sketch, it's likely that you'll want to 1:01 zoom into your document in order to see it in more detail. 1:06 Or perhaps zoom out, to see the entire canvas. 1:09 This is something that is quite important, so there are many ways to zoom in Sketch. 1:14 The most obvious way is by pressing on the plus and 1:20 minus buttons next to the magnifying glass icon in the toolbar. 1:24 The zoom level will multiply as you zoom in and divide as you zoom out. 1:31 The maximum zoom level is 64000% and the minimum is just 1. 1:37 You can also click on the icon or 1:43 hold down the Z key on your keyboard to enable the tool. 1:46 Click to zoom in. 1:53 Or hold option along with z and click to zoom out. 1:56 As well as clicking to zoom in and out with this tool, you can also click and 2:05 drag a box on the canvas whilst holding z. 2:09 That will zoom into the selection. 2:13 But my personal favorite option for zooming is by using the keyboard. 2:16 It is done just simply by pressing Command and plus to zoom in and 2:21 Command and minus to zoom out. 2:26 Press Command and zero to return to 100% zoom. 2:29 Dont worry if you feel like that is too much to remember. 2:34 You can access these commands and 2:37 see their shortcuts at the top of the view menu in the menu bar. 2:39 It will quickly become second nature to you 2:45
