Change artboard size after creation.
It's impossible to change the size of the artboard if you've used one of the presets to make it. All it does is make it scrollable if you resize it.
I think there should be a checkbox saying "freeze width & height".
The issue can be avoided by creating a custom sized artboard and pasting in all the content from another one. But doing so for many artboards is really hard and troublesome.
With our new September build, you’re now able to set whether or not the artboard is scrollable in the property inspector. Please do try it out and let us know what you think!

Nevermind, finally found out that you can click on the little name at the top left corner to select the artboard. Learning curves!

I'm an advanced Photoshop user trying to get familiar with XD for wireframing. In the first 20 minutes of my trial I do need to extend the artboard taller and am realizing this is not possible.
I would like to experiment with the "scollable" option but just wanted to clarify I'm unclear on your suggestion - I guess it's fair to assume the "property inspector" is the right column which has no label, yes?
I am not finding any possible way to "select" the existing artboard I would like to make scrollable, as I cannot click anywhere on the artboard or its edges and make anything come up on the right sidebar, it just stays grayed out.
Hey ! I had the same problem !
Here's how I solved it !
1. I opened the artboard which I want to resize.
2. Selected all the contents in it and grouped it !
3. Opened a new art board,either from presets or a custom artboard size and pasted all the contents and scaled it to fit into the artboard.
This worked for me.
Hope it helps !

Works as a charm! Thanks to whole team for this and many other cool features you're doing in XD. It really means a lot when a 1 vote feature is implemented! Great Job!
