Make Drawing "Page" bigger?

elizabeth_schmidtelizabeth_schmidt Member Posts: 5
I'm trying to make a drawing of my creation, but I don't know how to make it big enough to export the whole image to PDF. 
Can anyone help me?
I'm sure it's easy, but I don't have the right words/search terms to find it. 
Thank you!

    Right click Sheet1 in the left panel flyout -> Sheet properties... -> Edit the size field


    When you'll go to export it, you'll want to right click on the tab at the bottom and select Export...

    Also, if you're making a sort of box that will slot together from each side, I would recommend checking out the Laser Joint and Auto Layout custom features:

    FeatureScript Auto Layout | Auto Layout (onshape.com)

    There are two ways that you could do this, and both can be accessed from the Sheet Properties menu. To access the Sheet Properties menu, right click on the drawing page and select it from the list of options that appear. It looks like the scale of your drawings is too big for the page so you could either change the scale of the drawings on the sheet, or change the size to one that fits your drawings better. I'd suggest starting with changing the scale of the drawings.
