Rotate Text in Canva
- Begin by going to Canva and logging in with your credentials. Once you’re signed in and are on the Canva Home, navigate to Recent designs and click on the project you’re working on.
- If you haven’t started yet, click on Create a design from the top right corner and choose a design.
- Once the new/existing design is loaded, navigate to the canvas and press T to add a text box to the design.
- After it is added, replace the text with yours, and once done, look for the Rotate icon. Now, click on it and move your cursor in the direction you want to rotate the text to and you’re done.
Rotating Text Animation in Canva
There isn’t any particular approach to creating rotating text in Canva as you can generate multiple outputs. Hence, follow the demonstration below which features a basis for creating rotating text animation that remains the same for any output.
- Repeat Steps 1-2 from the above approach and once the new/existing design is loaded, press T to add a text box to the canvas.
- Next, replace the text with yours, and once done, click on Effects from the options at the top. Now, navigate to the Shape section click on Curve, and adjust the slider to set the curve angle [Refer to the image below for better understanding].
- With the curve radius set to your liking, navigate to the options on the top and click on Animate. Next, scroll down until you find Add Motion Effects and click on Rotate to rotate the text [Refer to the image below for better understanding].
- If you have done it right, you will have a result like below. Ensure you make changes according to your requirements to create an engaging rotate text animation.
Congratulations on rotating text in Canva!
While Canva is capable and efficient enough to rotate text/rotate animations, if you’re unhappy with the results, prefer conventional photo editing tools like Adobe Photoshop for more flexibility and better results.
