You might need to change the page size in Canva if you’re trying to customize or make optimizations to existing designs. While there is a direct approach to do it, as it is a Canva Pro feature, we have suggested a way around to get you all covered.

Change Page Size using Magic Switch

  1. Start by navigating to Canva and sign in with your credentials. Once you’re on the home screen, navigate to Recent designs and open the design you’re working on.

Alternate Approach to Resizing a Page

If you don’t have access to Canva Pro or Teams, consider checking out the steps below, as they act as a way to resize a page.

For demonstration, we are changing the page size from A4 to A3, but worry not, as the steps apply the same for reference for all designs.

  1. Begin by going to Canva home and click on Create a new design button present at the top right corner and search for the design you want to resize to.

Wrapping Up

Congratulations on learning how to change paper size in Canva!

While both approaches work fine, we suggest you adjust the elements according to the new design. It is important to do this as the auto design adaption doesn’t work all the time and might create undesirable results.
