Comment on designs

Directly comment on elements or design pages when working with your team and collaborators, or when reviewing student assignments (Canva for Education users).

Comments are different from notes. Notes are best used for presentations.

Leave comments

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Click on the page or element that you want to comment on.
  3. Click Add comment or the speech bubble icon next to the page or element.
  4. Type your comments.
  5. Optional: Tag users by typing “@” or “+”. Select them from the dropdown list. Make sure to tick the Invite them to this design checkbox to give them edit access to the design.
  6. Click Comment to finish.

Anyone who has edit access to the design can reply to comments.

Edit or delete comments

Mouse over the comment that you want to modify, and click the ••• icon that appears.

  • Select Edit, and make changes before clicking Save. You can only edit your comments.
  • Select Delete thread to delete your comment.
  • Select Delete reply to delete comments from other users (only for the design owner).
