How do I delete objects from the canvas

Removing elements from your design

If you wish to remove any element from the canvas, simply follow the steps below:

1. Click on the object you wish to remove

2. Press Delete on your keyboard. Alternatively, you can click the “Delete” button on the sidebar.

Delete multiple objects at once

You can also remove multiple objects from the canvas at once. Here’s how:

1. Simply hold Shift on your keyboard while clicking on objects to multi-select

2. Press Delete or click the “Delete” button (Trash icon)  on the sidebar.

Note – If you are in ‘Editing mode’ of a text box, pressing delete will remove the text/characters from within the box. Click off the text box to exit editing mode and then remove the text box by using either of the methods above.

If you delete the wrong element, you can always press Command + Z (Mac) ControlZ (Windows) or press the ‘Undo’ button directly below the ‘Delete’ button to retrieve it.
