How Do I Convert Canva to Editable PDF?

Converting your Canva designs to editable PDFs can be a useful tool for sharing, printing and distributing your work. It allows you to retain the design elements and format of your Canva designs while making them available in an industry-standard format. There are several ways to convert Canva designs to PDFs.

Canva’s Download Feature
The simplest way to convert a Canva design is using its download feature. After designing your work, select the “Download” button from the top toolbar.

This will open a side panel with different file format options including PNG, JPEG, and PDF. Selecting “PDF- Print” or “PDF- Computer” will generate a PDF version of your design with all the fonts, images and layout preserved. This will allow you to send or print out an editable version of your design that has the same look as the original Canva version.

Third Party Apps
You can also use third-party apps such as Adobe Acrobat Pro or Zamzar to convert a Canva design into an editable PDF. To do this, first download your design from Canva in either PNG or JPEG format.

Then upload it into one of these programs and select “Export as PDF” from the options menu. This will generate a high-quality PDF version of your design with all its elements intact.

Printing Directly From Canva
Lastly, you can also print directly from Canva by selecting “Print” from the top toolbar after designing your work. This will launch a new window where you can make adjustments such as changing paper size and orientation before exporting it as a PDF document.


Converting Canvas designs into editable PDFs is an easy process that allows you to share and distribute your work without losing any quality or formatting.

You can use Canvas’ built-in download feature, third-party apps such as Adobe Acrobat Pro or Zamzar, or even print directly from Canvas itself depending on what you need it for. No matter which method you choose, converting to an editable PDF is sure to save time and energy when sharing digital documents.
