How To Evenly Space Text In Canva
Below are the steps that you can follow to evenly space text in Canva.
1. Open/Create a Design
Go to the Canva website.

Click on the thumbnail of the past design that you want to continue editing and it will open up inside the Canva editor.
Or if you want to evenly space text on a new design. Then click on the ‘Create a Design’ button from the top right corner of the Canva homepage.
Click on the design type you want to work on and it will open up a blank canvas in a new tab.

Either by pressing on the left button of the mouse, and then dragging the cursor over all the text elements that you want to select.
Or while pressing the ‘Shift’ key on your keyword, keep clicking on the text elements to add them to the selection.
Now a boundary box will appear around it.
3. Evenly Space Your Text
After selecting your element using either method, we can start to evenly space your text.
Below are two methods for evenly spacing your text in Canva:
a) Using Space Evenly Option (In Position Tab)
Click on the ‘Position’ button from the top toolbar.
Now a menu will open on the left-hand side, where you will be able to see various arrangement settings.
Look for the ‘Space Evenly’ section and then click on the ‘Vertically’ button.

And then click on the ‘Position’ button from the top toolbar, and from the new menu click on ‘Horizontally’.
Now your text will get horizontally evenly spaced in front of you.
Note: In the same way, you can arrange, select, and then tidy up your text elements as well.
b) Using Canva Auto Guidelines
Guidelines can also help you to evenly space your text elements.
To evenly space two text elements vertically, drag one text element below the other text element.
As you drag the text element, you will notice a vertically dotted line. This line will guide you with the alignment and spacing of the text.
Stop dragging the element, once you get the spacing that you need.
In the same way, drag another text element near the previously positioned text elements.
As a result of which again a vertically dotted line will appear in front of you.
Now you can use the dotted line to evenly space your text elements.

Click on the ‘Share’ button from the top right corner of the screen and then on the ‘Download’ button.
