If you're using ArtRage Studio Pro, holding Alt and Left Click Dragging over a stencil allows for scaling a stencil proportionally. Holding Alt and Shift, and Left Click Dragging over a stencil allows for disproportional scaling. You may also select the Transform tool, click the stencil with it and use the Drag bars to scale the stencil.

Should you be trying to match the size of the stencil exactly with the size of a tracing, one should first import the image used for the tracing, as a new painting by means of File > Import Image File. This way, when one imports the same image as a Tracing, the Tracing will fill the canvas perfectly. With this done, import the Image as a stencil, right click on the stencil and select "Reset Stencil Scale". The stencil will then be the exact size of your canvas and can then be moved into position by holding the Space bar and Left Click Dragging over it, or by using the Transform tool and clicking on it and dragging it.
