How Do You Draw a Shape in Canva?

Last updated on September 27, 2022 @ 11:11 pm

In Canva, you can draw shapes using the dedicated Shape tool. This can be found in the left toolbar, under the Elements tab.

To draw a shape, simply click on the Shape tool and then click and drag your mouse to draw the shape on the canvas. You can also click on the “Insert Shape” button in the top toolbar to insert a pre-made shape from the library.

Once you have inserted a shape, you can customize it further by changing its color, adding a stroke or gradient, and more. To do this, simply click on the shape and then use the options in the right toolbar.

PRO TIP: Canva is a great way to draw shapes, but there are a few things you should keep in mind when using it. First, make sure you have the correct dimensions for your shape. Second, when drawing your shape, be sure to start from the outside and work your way in. Third, be sure to use a light touch when drawing your shape so you don’t accidentally erase it.

Here are some tips for drawing shapes in Canva:

  • To draw a perfect circle or square, hold down the Shift key while drawing.
  • To draw multiple shapes of the same type, click on the “Insert Multiple Shapes” button in the top toolbar.
  • To make a shape longer or shorter, click on one of its handles (the small squares) and then drag it in or out.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to easily draw any shape you need in Canva!
