And, if you want to know more about Canva, take our Reset And Refresh course where we have a module dedicated to Canva and all its glory!As my love affair with Canva grows, I get overly excited when I find out new tips and tricks to make things quicker or easier ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I posted some of these several months ago but Iโ€™ve added in my latest discoveries ๐Ÿง

๐Ÿ’ฅ When creating text, just press T on the keyboard and the text box will appear. Easier than going back and forward to the text section.

๐Ÿ’ฅ You can use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move elements by just 1px at a time (or use shift and arrow key to move them 10px)

๐Ÿ’ฅ If you want to zoom in or out, just use control and the + or - key

๐Ÿ’ฅ There are secret codes you can use to only bring up free images. Use brand:BAAAAP7rQ8M or brand:BAAMOuJH0Ec

๐Ÿ’ฅ To create a drop shadow, create your text then duplicate the text box. Make one of them a slightly different colour and set it behind and to the side slightly.

๐Ÿ’ฅ To move elements simultaneously, click and drag your cursor over the ones you want to group. Click group on the toolbar and they will now be locked together.

Do you have any others to share? Let me know ๐Ÿ˜Š
