Managing all your canvases
Under "My canvases" on your home page you can manage all of your canvases. You can access a quick menu for each canvas by clicking on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of each canvas. From here you can choose to copy the link to that specific canvas, duplicate that canvas, or delete the canvas.

- Presentation mode
To access presentation mode, select the "Present" icon at the bottom left-hand side of your canvas. This will open up your various frames as slides, making it easy to navigate through your canvas and showcase your work.
