A Quick Tip for Using the Same Color in Multiple Canva Designs

Canva has lots of helpful design tools for students and teachers. Some of those are fairly obvious while others are a bit hidden and easy to overlook. One of those that's easy to overlook is the color hex code field in the color palette selection tool. Once you know how to use it, you might never overlook it again. 

The hex code field in Canva makes it easy to make sure you use the exact shade of a color between multiple designs or multiple elements within the same design. For example, let's say I've found a really nice shade of green that I want to use in three parts of my design. I could try to use the color selector and hope that I get it exactly right each time. Or I could copy the color hex code from the first part of the design and then paste it into the other parts of the design. Watch this video for a demonstration of how to use the color hex code field in Canva.

This Was an Experiment!
The opening paragraph and the list of ten items was written entirely by ChatGPT. ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence tool that will generate lists and entire articles based on a few inputs from you. There are a lot of potential ramifications, both good and bad, of using this kind of technology in education. I'll be publishing an article about that later this week. That article will be written without the use of AI.

How to Find and Download Your Old Canva Projects

Last week a reader emailed me to ask for help with Canva. Specifically, he wanted to know where all of his videos had gone. He wasn't the first person to send me that question so I decided to make a short video to show three ways to find your old Canva projects and then download those projects. The video is embedded below.
