Story layout

The layout global parameter allows you to configure how stories are positioned in Storybook's Canvas tab.

You can add the parameter to your ./storybook/preview.js, like so:

Layout params centered story

In the example above, Storybook will center all stories in the UI. layout accepts these options:

  • centered: center the component horizontally and vertically in the Canvas
  • fullscreen: allow the component to expand to the full width and height of the Canvas
  • padded: Add extra padding around the component

If you want to use your own styles, or require a more granular approach we recommend using decorators instead.
