Most elements in Canvas Designer are optimized to work with the currenly selected resulution of your target device. For example, setting an arcs line width property to 8 pixel will use those 8 pixels regardless if your device is a non-retina iPhone (320x480) or a retina iPad (2048x1536). Further, elements selecting random positions of their objects may also place them differently as a bigger display has simply put more coordinates available.

The consequence of this is that the positioning of the individual objects most likely change, but overall it will generate a much more natural looking up-/downscaled version of your design.
