When designing graphics in Canva, you can add the templates, elements, and photos that you like the most to your favorites so you can use them again later.
This is a fantastic feature of Canva, especially if you create a lot of graphics a day with it and you come across items that you really like and want to use in designs the future, but don’t necessarily find a use for right away.
At the same time, it’s one of those less obvious Canva features that only experienced Canva users know where to find. You’re here, which means you’re a minute away from becoming one!
This tutorial will show you how to add items to your Canva favorites and where to find your favorites in the app—with screenshots.

Now that you know how to add templates, elements, and photos to your Canva elements, where do you need to look to find them?
In Canva, you can find your favorites in two places: the sidebar on the home screen and the side panel in the design editor. In the rest of this post, I’ll show you how to do each.
From Canva Home
To find favorites while you’re on Canva’s home screen, click on the burger menu at the top left corner and scroll down to “Starred.”

To find favorites while you’re working on a design in Canva, click the “Starred” tab from the editor side panel. If it’s not there, click on “More” first.
