Have you ever wanted to create a stunning graphic or social media post but just didn’t have the design skills??? Well, let us FINALLY introduce you to one of our favorite blogging tools: Canva!
Canva is a user-friendly design platform that allows you to create posters, graphics, wallpapers, social media posts, and so much more with ease. What’s great about Canva (and one of the reasons we LOVE it SO MUCH!) is that you don’t have to be a graphic design whiz to use it, as it provides you with pre-made templates and a variety of design elements to work with.
Even more, Canva comes packed with features designed to make your editing more efficient, such as grouping elements. This can help keep your spacing precise when moving elements or duplicating them easily. However, some users may find this feature a bit complicated to use at first, but don’t worry, once you get the hang of it, it’s a HUGE time saver.
So today, we will be delving more into the world of Canva by discussing group elements on Canva. Here’s everything you need to know:
How To Group on Canva
Step 1: Select the objects you want to group
The first step to grouping elements in Canva is selecting the objects you want to group. This is done by holding down the “Shift” key on your keyboard and clicking on each element you want to include in the group.
Step 2: Click the “Group” button
Once you’ve selected the objects, simply click the “Group” button located in the top toolbar. The button looks like two rectangles overlapping each other. You can also group objects by using the shortcut key “Cmd + G” on a Mac or “Ctrl + G” on Windows.
Step 3: Maximize the group feature
Now that you’ve grouped your objects, you can perform several actions with them. You can move them around your design as one entity, resize them together, or rotate them as a group. This makes grouping ESPECIALLY useful when creating logos, icons, or other graphics with multiple elements.
Step 4: Ungroup objects if needed
If you need to edit or modify one of the elements in your group, you can easily ungroup them by selecting the group and clicking the “Ungroup” button located in the top toolbar. This will separate the elements, allowing you to edit or modify them individually.
Step 5: Group on Canva Mobile
If you’re designing on the go, fear not! You can also group elements in the Canva mobile app. Next up is a step-by-step tutorial on how to group on Canva mobile app.
How To Group on Canva App
Step 1: Select the elements
To group and ungroup elements in Canva, you need to select the objects that you want to group. You can do this by clicking on an object and dragging the cursor to select the additional objects or by holding down the shift key while clicking on each object.
Step 2: Group the elements
Once you have selected the elements, click on the “Group” button located on the toolbar. It usually looks like two squares overlapping or a lock symbol. Give it a gentle tap, and voila – it groups the selected boxes.
Step 3: Ungrouping elements
If you’re a Canva Pro user, you also have the option to “Ungroup” elements in Canva. This allows you to easily separate grouped elements if you need to make adjustments or change them.
To ungroup, simply select the grouped object and click on the “Ungroup” button on the toolbar. This will break apart the group into separate objects.
Step 4: Arranging the group
Once you’ve grouped elements, you can easily arrange them by dragging the entire group to move them wherever you want. You can also resize the group by clicking on one of the object corners and dragging it.
Step 5: Editing the group
Editing a group is also simple. Double-click on a group to access the individual objects within. You can make changes to each object and once the edits are done, click outside the group to close the editing mode. The group will reflect the changes made to individual objects.
With a little practice, grouping on Canva can truly be a breeze.
