Adding Shapes to the canvas

  2. Once you find the one you want, click on it and then insert the shape on the canvas by clicking on a spot and dragging it to your preferred size.

Editing Shapes

You can personalize shapes by adjusting their color, text, or size.

The left-side properties panel has many options that will appear once you select your shape.
