Canvas color
Is there a way to change the canvas color so one can have a colored instead of white background?

There's a feature request that's open on that, but it's not currently possible.

However, you can do the following as a work-around for the missing feature:
[LIST=1][*]Disable the "Auto-size canvas" option in the Canvas inspector.[*]Zoom your document out: you want the canvas to be smaller than the screen.[*]In draw mode, draw a shape that's larger than the canvas.[*]Turn off the stroke for the shape and set the fill for the shape to whatever color you'd prefer.[/LIST]
Bit of a hack, but it should hold you until we get the ability to color the canvas into the app. Hope this helps!

Thanks Brian, that's what I had been doing but I hadn't turned off autosize so I could never quite cover the whole canvas. Your suggestion solves that problem.

Still no?
Please add this.

There's a Canvas Background Inspector that's been there for some time, where you can easily change the background color of the canvas.
