How saving works in Canva

Canva automatically saves your design as you work, eliminating the need for you to do it manually.

note: This article discusses how Canva saves your designs in-app. If you wish to save a copy of your design to your computer, please refer to this article.

Here’s a short video on how this works:


Saving status

When editing a design in Canva, you’ll see the phrase “All Changes Saved” displayed at the top of your dashboard, which means your design is successfully saved. This automatically happens every few seconds.



Save manually

You can also opt to manually save your work.

To manually save your design:

  1. Click on File.
  2. Select Save.

note: When you see the phrase “Unsaved changes” displayed, it means your recent changes did not save. In cases like this, it is best to manually save your design.


Access previously saved designs

You’ll be able to access all of your previously saved designs any-time you visit Canva by going to the Home tab or All your designs folder in your homepage. You can go back to your homepage from the editor by clicking on Home from the menu bar.


Internet connection issue

When you get disconnected from the internet, you’ll see the status notification “Offline, attempting to reconnect…”

Once your Internet connection is reestablished, the status notification should revert back to “All changes saved”.

note: If you want to reverse an action, or to go back to the previous version of your design, simply click Undo or press Ctrl/Command Z.
