I am working on my second Canvas (by the way...LOVE that feature!). I am finding that the block diagramming has me at the end of the page but still more of the passage to diagram. 

Is there a way to add more pages in that specific tab so I don't run out of the canvas? 

Or is it more of a "canvas" concept vs. "page", and I just need to increase the height of the Canvas?

Thanks in advance!

Canvas does have pages. It adds pages as necessary, just start drawing or drag an object beyond the border of the page you're working on and it will automatically add pages. However, the export feature doesn't export as pages, the entire contents of the tab are exported as one image.

You can also change the size of a page if you prefer by clicking on the background and setting the Paper Size in the formatting sidebar on the right.

SO HELPFUL! Thanks so much, Randy. I couldn't figure out how to add a page, and I didn't consider that it would be that intuitive to just drag beyond the border!

Seriously?  If you specifically create separate pages, it won't export as separate pages?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Sadly yes, so it makes the second page feature kind of useless, for now. I expect that we are early days with Canvas and that it will only get better.

If one canvas tab includes several pages is exports as one (i.e. a complex diagrammed sentence). But if you add pages as separate tabs, each tab exports as its own PNG.
