It is possible to change the width and height of an infographic to your specific needs. You can do this on each of the blocks settings.
There are two methods in which you can resize a block on your canvas.
Customise block height
Click on the block you want to resize to select it. There will be a white semi-transparent bar defining the boundaries between the blocks. A two way arrow will appear when you mouse-over this bar.
Click on it and drag to resize the block height. A black box will appear to show you the size height to guide you as you resize. Please note that this method allows you to quickly resize the height of the block only. If you would like to resize both width and height, please follow the method below.
Customise block width and height
Click on the block you want to resize to select it. There are six buttons on the left of the block. Click the cog-shaped button (at the bottom) for Settings. It opens up a menu to change the width and height.
Piktochart provides pre-set width e.g. 600, 800, and 1200 pixels width. If you would like a customised width, open the drop-down menu under Canvas Width and choose Custom. A textbox to input your desired infographic width should appear. Please note that change the width on any block will apply the changes to all blocks.
You can also input your desired height (in pixels) for the selected block.
What is 'Resize Content'?
The checkbox 'Resize Content' will scale all objects within the selected block accordingly when the block size changes. For example, if the infographic block size is reduced, all object size will shrink accordingly, so changing each object size individually is not needed, and it saves time.
If 'Resize Content' is unticked, any changes made on the selected block size will only affect the block, and all objects remains untouched. It will expand/shrink on the left side of the block.
Can I change the width and height for Presentation formats?
Our Presentation format templates are scaled to 4:3 ratio and the option to customise the height of an individual block is disabled. This is because Presentation formats are optimised for presentation purposes, and the size will fit nicely on the projector screen. Users may customise the width, and the infographic block will resize accordingly.
