Something's not working

Select a template

After the Canva editor loads, the first thing you’ll notice on the side panel is the Templates tab. The Templates tab shows all the available templates you can use for your design. 

Scroll through the available templates until you find one you’d like to use. You can also click on All to expand a template category. Once you find a template you wish to use, simply click on the thumbnail to apply it on your canvas.

Feel free to replace the initial template you used by clicking on the thumbnail of the other template from the side panel. Just a warning though, any changes made to your initial template will be completely replaced by the new one.

Once you’re happy with the template you chose, you can then customize and format any of the existing elements on it. To know more about templates, you can head over to Add and replace templates.

note: If you don’t want to use a template, you’re also free to create your own templates from scratch. With over a million elements to choose from, you can mix and match them to create your very own customized design.
