How Do I Embed a PDF in Canva?

Embedding a PDF in Canva is a great way to easily share detailed documents with viewers. It allows you to add professional-looking visuals to any website or blog post while still providing the reader with the full text of the document. With Canva, it’s easy to embed a PDF without any coding knowledge.

Step 1:

The first step is to sign into your Canva account and click on the “Create a Design” button. Choose “Documents” from the options presented and then select “PDF Embed” from the templates.

Step 2:

Once you have selected the template, you will see an empty document with several options on the left-hand side.

Click on the “Uploads” tab and then click “Upload your own images or files”. Find and select your PDF document from your computer, and it will be uploaded into Canva.

Step 3:

Once your PDF has been uploaded, it will appear in your file library in Canva. Drag and drop this onto your newly created design canvas, which should appear in the centre of the screen. You can also resize or reposition it however you like by clicking and dragging on its edges.

Step 4:

When you are happy with how it looks, click on “Share” at the top right-hand corner of your screen to generate a link for others to view your document online. Select “Copy Link” and then paste this anywhere online that allows HTML content, such as blog posts or web pages.
