Hi Mike,

Depends on what you'd like to do:
In order to just set the layout to the desired size you can go to the Document tab in the sidebar and change the Canvas Size directly.

If you'd like to expand the layout automatically when necessary you can go to the Canvas tab in the application's preferences and set the Canvas Size Mode to automatically. This will cause the app to adapt the canvas size whenever elements don't fit inside.

Hope this helps,
