Resize Grid

I'm building a small part (a few square cm); it's dwarfed by the size of the grid/canvas/environment. It's disorientating. How can I resize the environment so I'm not constantly having to zoom in?

    You can also create new planes that are resizable should you wish.  (By resizable I mean the blue representation in the graphics area, a plane is by its very nature infinite...)

    Erm, @Jake_Rosenfeld I'm pretty sure we can resize the default planes now. :)

    @Jake_Rosenfeld The corners don't seem able to be grabbed for resizing.



    Trying to add a URL to the public document, but it seems like this basic functionality is unavailable also. Frustrating.

    Looks like we don't have those drag handles yet on mobile.  Would hiding the default planes as I described in the the original post (with the strikethrough) help?

    If you add two improvement requests on the 'Improvement Requests' section of this forum it will help us prioritize these two features.  (You could name them something like 'Resize default planes on mobile' and 'Access document URL on mobile').  Thanks!
