I find myself using more and more Figma to brainstorm and create my designs as I have a single document containing all of my visual explorations.
For print assets I go back to Illustrator and create the final file, but I reallly wish I could have done it all in illustrator. So just removing the canvas limit.
Not artboards or number of something -> just being able to spread and spread your ideas in the same place.
The entire logic is flawed. There is the big space that's just there, then there is the limited canvas on top of it and then there is the limited number of artboards that for some reason need to fit into the canvas.
In this scenario canvas exists only to allow reusing some legacy code., its completely useless.
Please remove the canvas, there is no point in it, and allow infinite space.
