Check which version of Canva you’re using

In line with our mission to empower everyone to design, we’ve launched Canva 2.0, packed with new features. Don’t worry – this does not mean that Canva 1.0 is gone for good just yet.

At the moment, both versions of Canva are still accessible. You can identify the version you’re using by checking your Canva homepage and editor.

Canva homepage


The homepage is the first page you’ll see after logging in. The main difference between the Canva 1.0 and Canva 2.0 homepages is the document selector.

In Canva 1.0, the document selector has document type previews that expand to show all the available document types. To start designing, simply click on the document type’s thumbnail.

Canva 1.0 homepage

For Canva 2.0, the document selector is now a search bar. To start designing, click Create a design. This will reveal a drop-down below the search bar with document types you might want to create. You can enter your own keyword and click on the available option to start your design.

Canva 2.0 homepage

note: If you’ve created a design using Canva 1.0, opening it from the Canva 2.0 homepage will open the design in the Canva 1.0 editor.

Canva editor


The editor is where you create and customize your designs. There are several features to note in order to differentiate the editor version you’re using.

Canva 1.0 editor

Canva 2.0 editor

  1. Menu bar – The menu bar is located at the very top of the editor. It contains features like Undo, Redo, Resize, Share or Publish. Canva 1.0’s menu bar is colored teal while Canva 2.0’s has a teal to violet gradient coloring.
  2. Side panel – The side panel contains the templates, images, and elements you can add to your design. In Canva 1.0, the available templates are simply displayed. On the other hand, Canva 2.0’s side panel displays templates organized into categories and lets you search for them as well. Canva 2.0’s side panel can also be hidden by clicking on the arrow button on its side.
  3. Canva Assistant – Canva Assistant is an in-app assistive feature which contains basic information on how to use Canva. Only Canva 2.0’s editor has Canva Assistant which can be opened by clicking the violet question mark icon on the lower portion of your screen.
