The settings for the size and background of your project are accessed in Size & Background in the Properties pane on the right. These settings are important for the appearance of the infographics and other output you create with HelpXplain. It is generally best to configure them before editing beyond the first slide in your project.


About the workspace

The workspace is the space inside the editor window where you arrange your slides. Its dimensions are theoretically infinite. You can place your slides anywhere inside the workspace. Inside the workspace "canvas" is a virtual rectangle that is defined automatically by the slides in your project. This is fully automatic, it is just the rectangle that encloses all your slides, wherever they are.

The preview image for your published output is generated from the contents inside the canvas rectangle. This preview image is used when you insert your Xplain in web pages and in Help+Manual topics. It is also displayed in social media links to your Xplains.
