There are three main toolbars within the Venngage Editor:

From these, you can edit and customize a design's elements (objects, colors, etc.) and canvas (page size, orientation, order, duplication, etc.), and access sharing, downloading and publishing options for your final design.

For more detail and a breakdown of each icon and tool, keep reading!

Top toolbar functionality and features

In a nutshell, the top toolbar lets you customize your design and canvas with the following tools:

Alignment

Open the alignment menu to access tools that help you with positioning text, object and other elements on your canvas in a professional, visually pleasing way.

Align items with built-in Smart Guides, using the auto-align and distribution features, or by displaying and following the Grid.

 

Undo and Redo

These rounded back and forward arrows in the toolbar allow you to perform and cancel actions on your design canvas. Click the Back arrow to undo; click the Forward arrow to redo.

 

 

You can use the keyboard shortcuts in the table below to the same effect:

OS/Device

Mac

Windows

Undo

(Command) + Z

Ctrl + Z

Redo

(Command) + Y

Ctrl + Y

 

Group and ungroup objects

This tool is ideal for working on designs that layer or align multiple elements–objects, icons, text, etc.

Use it to "stick" multiple elements together so that they can be moved around the design canvas while staying in the same position relative to each other.

 

 

Delete

Click the trashcan icon on the top toolbar to delete items from the page. You can also use the "Delete" key on your keyboard to delete an element you selected.

 

Lock an element in place

Layer elements by moving them backward or forward

Modify the design file title

Type a new title for your design into the text field in the top toolbar.
