How to change artboard’s size in XD

Need to change the size of your artboard in Adobe XD?

Working with artboards in XD will become second nature after a very short time, since artboards are so pivotal to the design process. But for first-time users, some of the basics can throw you for a loop.

In the mini tutorial I will show you have to quickly change the size of your artboards in Adobe XD using both the Select tool and the Transform menu.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open your Adobe XD project file
  2. Select the artboard you want to resize
  3. With the Select tool (v) active, click-and-drag any of the corner or side handles to change the size
  4. Or, change the artboard’s size to an exact measurement using the Transform panel on the right side — just enter your new height and width dimensions and you’re done!
