Shape Designer

I have tried everything in order to enlarge the Shape Designer box without success. Am I missing something or is the size fixed?
Many thanks for any suggestions.

There's no way to enlarge the Shape Designer window that I know of.

There are probably more than a few members of this forum that know their way around the Shape Designer pretty well. If you're having issues, mention them and maybe you'll receive a tip or two.

Something else that we were told "is scoped for future development."

The box size can't be changed, but the view magnification can. That is at least a help.

Thank you for all your replies, so it's as I thought. It is annoying creating new shapes for an aleatoric score in a very small box on ' 27" iMac.
I think the Shape Designer needs an overhaul: every time the show stave and use points as measurements has to be reset. As many young classical composers in the U.K. are writing semi-improvised scores it should be useful - except I believe they use Sibelius.
