Do you want to save a particular template for your brand so you’ll have easy access to it later?
Or do you want to organize all the important templates for your brand without manually creating a separate folder for them?
Well, if there is a “Bookmark” button on social media sites, there certainly is a counterpart in Canva — starred templates!
What happens when you star a template in Canva is you save it on your profile as a separate folder. But, how exactly can you find those templates you’ve starred on the graphic design tool?
How to Find Starred Templates on Canva
One way to find starred templates on Canva is to click the “Projects” tab on the left sidebar. Then, go to “Folders” and select the “Starred” folder. You can also click the star icon beside the “Starred” label to make a quick access tab that you can later click to access the starred templates.
Step 1: On the Canva homepage, go to the left-side panel or sidebar and click the “Projects” tab.
Step 2: Inside the “Projects” folder, go to the header and select the “Folders” tab.
Step 3: Under “Folders,” find the folder labeled “Starred” and click it.
Step 4: To open a starred template that you have created in Canva, double-click on it.
This move opens the template on a new editor page.
Step 5: If you prefer quicker access to your starred templates, click the star icon beside the “Starred” label on the header.
The said star icon will then become yellow. Aside from that, a new tab labeled “Starred” will appear on the same sidebar where you clicked the “Projects” tab earlier.
How to Find Starred Templates in Canva When Working on a Project
To find a starred Canva template when you’re working on a project, go to the left-side panel and click “Projects.” Scroll down the object panel and select the “Starred” folder. You will now see all the starred templates, images, and design elements from other projects you made in Canva.
Step 1: After opening an existing project thumbnail or a new one from Canva’s home page, go to the left-side panel of the editor page and select the “Projects” tab.
Step 2: To access the starred templates, scroll down and click the “Starred” folder.
You will now see all the templates, photos, videos, and even design elements you have starred before.
Simply click on the starred template you’ll use so you can apply it to the current project you’re working on.
While it’s easy to access the “Starred” folder on Canva’s web version, sometimes you only have a mobile phone with you.
But, not to worry. You can still find your starred templates even when you’re working on a smaller screen.
