In the "Canvas size..." dialog box if you enter a new width or new height only and click okay nothing happens. You have to enter a value and tab to a new field before it will notice.

This is probably related to the fact that it generates a preview when you tab between fields.

This is Pixelmator Pro 1.01, Macbook Pro.

I noticed that too, definitely not the best UX.

Changing the canvas size just include adding or taking away pixels around the edges of the image. It's like similar to the neutral border around a mounted photo, or using scissors to crop the image to a smaller size. Part of the image is left after a crop, is unchanged.
You will change the canvas size when:
You want to add a border to your image (without changing the size of the image itself).
You crop an image.

This preview not showing up unless you switch fields was fixed in one of the previous updates, but if anyone's still having issues with it, do let us know at 🙏
