Wrap text

Resizing a text box also resizes the text.

If you want to change the text box area but not affect the font size, here’s how:

  1. Create or open an existing design.
  2. Click to select the text box you want to edit. It should not be grouped with other elements.
  3. Click any of the white pill handles, and drag left or right to make the text box smaller or bigger.

If the text box area is made smaller, the text will automatically wrap or overflow to the next line.

Access to our extended font library and uploading fonts is available to Canva ProCanva for EnterpriseCanva for Education, and Canva for Nonprofits users.
