How do I add text?

Aside from photos and illustrations, you can also add text elements to your designs. To start adding text, click the Text tab on the far left-hand side of the screen.

At the top of the text pane are some standard styles for Heading, Subheading, and Body text. Click or drag any of these into your design. Next, click on the text element and use the keyboard to type text, delete text, and move the cursor just as you would in a word processor.

 

You can enhance the default styles by easily adjusting your text’s typeface, size, and color.

If you’d like to add some text with a bit more flair, try one of our textholders, located at the bottom portion of the text pane.

A textholder is a pre-designed arrangement of shapes, colors, and text that you can drop into your designs and customize. Once you find a textholder you like, click or drag it into your design. You can then select the textholder to input your own text or modify the typeface, colors, and more.

You can also upload your own fonts by subscribing to Canva for Work.
