The style of text used in a design.

What is the font in Canva?

Canva, a graphic design platform, uses a variety of fonts. The specific font used in a Canva design depends on the user's choice as the platform offers a wide range of font options. These include popular fonts like Roboto, Open Sans, and Montserrat, among others. Users can also upload their own custom fonts if they have a Canva Pro account.

The default font in Canva's text tool is likely to be a commonly used one like Roboto, but it can be easily changed. The platform also offers a variety of text templates with pre-set font combinations, which can be a great starting point for users who are unsure about choosing fonts. The goal of Canva is to make design accessible to everyone, so it provides a lot of flexibility and options when it comes to font selection.

How to change font value in Canva?

This menu contains various options for editing your text, including font style, font size, color, and more.

To change the font style, click on the drop-down menu that currently displays the name of the font being used. This will open a list of all available fonts. Scroll through this list until you find the font you want to use, then click on it to select it. To change the font size, click on the drop-down menu next to the font style menu. This will open a list of all available font sizes. Click on the size you want to use to select it. You can also manually input a font size by typing it into the box.

How to add a new font value in Canva?

To add a new font value in Canva, you first need to have a Canva Pro account, as the ability to upload custom fonts is a feature exclusive to Pro users. Once you have a Pro account, you can start the process by clicking on the "Brand Kit" tab from your Canva homepage. In the Brand Kit page, you will find a section labeled "Uploaded Fonts". Click on the "Upload a font" button in this section.

A new window will open where you can select the font file from your computer. Canva supports .OTF, .TTF, and .WOFF font file formats. After selecting the file, click on the "Open" button to upload the font. Once the font is uploaded, it will appear in your "Uploaded Fonts" section and will be available for use in your designs. Remember, you must have the legal rights to use any font you upload.

Why can't I adjust the font value in Canva?

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. While it offers a wide range of customization options, there may be instances where you find difficulty in adjusting the font value. This could be due to several reasons.

Firstly, it could be a technical issue. Ensure that you have a stable internet connection and that your browser is up-to-date. If the problem persists, try clearing your browser's cache and cookies. Secondly, it could be due to the specific design template you're using. Some templates may have locked elements, including fonts, that cannot be altered. Lastly, it could be a limitation of the free version of Canva. Some advanced features, including certain font adjustments, might only be available in the paid version, Canva Pro.
