How to make text vertical in Canva

Canva is a service that gives its users an opportunity to edit text and rotate your text vertically. So, in this way, you will be able to add text to many different kinds of designs.

How to add vertical text in Canva

Surely, there is a way to add vertical text in Canva, but, unfortunately, the process isn’t as straightforward as you may want it to be. The first thing that you should do is to change the page orientation. To do this, you should follow the steps which are mentioned in the section below:

  1. First of all, you should create a new design or open the one that was created before.
  2. After that, you should tap on the “Resize” option which is located above the editor. The design dimension will be “Custom size” by default.
  3. Then, you should alter the page orientation. To do this, you should change the height and width settings. In addition to this, you can choose some features from predefined alternatives.
  4. To finish the process, you should copy and resize the item. To do that, you should tap on the “Copy & resize” option.

The next method is about clicking the text box. To do that, you should follow the prompts which are displayed in the section below:

  1. First of all, you should highlight the text box. To do that, you should click on it.
  2. After the text box has been highlighted, you will see a dotted line around it. Take a look on the arrow in the shape of a circle under the dotted box.
  3. After that, you should move your mouse pointer to the circle arrow and then, you should click and hold the left mouse button.
  4. To complete the process, you should pull the text while pressing on the button. The item will be rotated in the same way as you do your movements.

There is one more method. The text can be rotated outside the app. However, this method is a bit more sophisticated as not everyone knows how to code. If you want to do that, you should follow the instructions which would be shown in the section below:

You’re generally best off using CSS writing mode. The rotation property of the BasicImage filter in Internet Explorer accepts one of four values: 0, 1, 2, or 3, which is able to rotate the element by 0, 90, 180, or 270 degrees respectively. The code that you need to fill in is:

CanvasRenderingContext2D.prototype.fillVerticalText =

function(text, x, y, verticalSpacing) {

 for (var i = 0; i < text.length; i++) {

 this.fillText(text[i], x, y + i * verticalSpacing);

} }
