This is probably a simple question, but I don't can't find how to change the page layout (e.g. horizontal vs vertical) or the canvas size in LibreOffice Draw. Is this possible at all?


You can use the menu Format/Page dialog to configure the size and orientation of the canvas.


MenuBar->Format->Page/Slide properties...

I suggest changing to screen orientation and playing with the size to get plenty of room for creative thinking


In LibreOffice 5, it is under the FormatPage/Slide Properties... dropdown: Format Page/Slide Properties...

This will open the Page Setup Dialog. Under Paper Format, you can choose Format, Width, Height and Orientation (Portrait/Landscape).

In LibreOffice 6 it is under: Page -> Properties
