Grab a Template from “All Your Designs”
Unlock the power of efficiency by utilizing this favorite hack. Click on “More,” then “All your Designs” to incorporate any of your previous designs into your current project seamlessly.
Before knowing this Canva hack, I was used to being confused when I want to drag-and-drop one specific element, and it is under layers, it messes up others. So confused!!!
Avoid accidental mishaps by using the lock icon in the top toolbar to secure elements in place. This is particularly useful when adding multiple elements on top of each other and you want certain elements to remain “frozen” in position.
Achieve visual harmony effortlessly by leveraging the position button in the top toolbar. Use the tidy up or alignment buttons to evenly space a set of elements or group of text boxes, ensuring your design remains visually balanced.
Unwanted backgrounds! It’s so cheesy and invaluable. You don’t want it anymore, then simply click on “Effects” when editing an image, select the background remover, and watch the background magically disappear.
Quick Keystrokes: Master the art of efficiency with these handy keystrokes:
- Press “R” to insert a rectangular or square shape.
- Press “C” to insert a circle shape.
- Press “L” to insert a line.
- Press “T” to insert a text box.
Need your text to stand out? Text Effects to the rescue! Utilize the Effects feature (located in the top toolbar) to give your text that extra oomph it needs. We recommend using the “lift” or “shadow” effects to add dimension and make your text pop.
Change All Colors with One Click
Time is precious, and Canva understands that. Experience the magic of this time-saving feature, particularly useful when working with EOwn Customizable Templates. Open a EOwn template which integrated directly to your Canva account, click on the color palette button, select your desired color, and let the bottom left corner of the window tempt you with a message asking to “Change all” colors to your chosen shade. Yessss!
Ever designed something you absolutely love but want to experiment with a slight variation? Fear not! Simply click the duplicate button (located in the top right of the design) to create a copy of your design. Make your adjustments while still preserving the original.
Share Design as a Full-Screen Website
Prepare to impress your clients with a unique feature offered by Canva. Create a design, be it a captivating listing presentation or any other masterpiece, and share it as a full-screen website. Yes, you read that right — a website! Navigate to the cluster of three dots in the top right corner, choose “Website” under the Share heading, and select from the available website styles: Presentation, Scrolling, Classic Navigation, or Standard.
