How do I delete a design?

Should you wish for an ill-looking design you created vanish, you can easily delete  it from Canva any time you want.

Go to your Homepage

To delete a design, you need to be on the Canva homepage. This is the first screen you see when you log in to your Canva account.

Find the design you want to remove

Once you are redirected to the All your Designs screen, scroll through and hover your mouse cursor above the design you would like to remove. An expand arrow will appear in the top right of your design.

Delete the design

Toggle on the expand arrow and click move to trash (recycle bin icon). This will delete the design from your Canva account, no matter where you are logged in.

Note: If you have second thoughts or regrets, you can still recover your design. While your design is highlighted in red and reads 'Deleted', you can restore your design by clicking 'Undo' on the bottom right corner of your design. However, if you click 'Dismiss' or refresh the page, your design will be gone for good.
