Project settings are located in the Inspector, which stretches along the right side of your workspace and is additionally host to effects, utilities, edit modes and more.

At any time, the Inspector reveals the effects, utilities, etc. of selected layer(s). To view project settings, click out of any actively selected layers.

Two panels determine your project settings: Canvas and Timeline.
