Additionally, you can move your texts or elements in Canva without snapping to the grid by holding the “Ctrl” button (“Command” for MacOs) and dragging it to your desired location.

PRO TIP: If you are working in Canva and want to turn off the Snap to Grid feature, be aware that this will also turn off the ability to align objects to the grid. This means that you will need to be more precise when positioning objects on your design canvas.

Your text and elements will no longer snap to the grid when you move it around!
