The Canvas in Figma is the backdrop on which all of your Frames, Groups, and other Layers live. It has a finite size of -65,000 through +65,000 on each axis.
By default, vectors are rendered as resolution-independent paths in the canvas though you can turn on Pixel Preview at 1x and 2x resolutions to enable pixel-precise editing for raster assets.
The default background color of the Canvas will be #E5E5E5, but you can change the background color in the Properties Panel by de-selecting any Layers and clicking the color picker labeled “Background.”
If you like having Rulers visible on your canvas, you can use the Shift + R shortcut to enable them. You can also use the search feature under the menu icon to search for rulers.
