I confess, I did not know you could do this!
I was looking up a totally different task and I found a video about using Canva for teachers, and it showed how you could modify an MS Word document in Canva. I tried it, it works fantastically, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
I have used MS Word literally since it was invented and though I love it for word processing, to try to do much else with it is an exercise in frustration. Images are a nightmare to try to place, columns do funny things, and any kind of layout with images is a huge challenge.
The “templates” available in MS Word and online might be useful if want to keep something almost exactly the same and only change wording, but sometimes you want to do more than that. When I heard you can open an MS Word template in Canva it seemed almost too good to be true. Then I tried it and was incredibly excited about what you could do!
After a little more experimenting on a newsletter, I created a video to share with you showing how EASY it is to make major design modifications on an MS Word document in Canva.
As always in the Effective Church Communications Canva videos, I’m showing you how to do things with real-world projects, in this case modifying a newsletter, and not simply a demonstration of tools in the program. BE SURE to subscribe and hit the notification bell on the YouTube channel so you'll be notified when I post the new Canva videos as I often get them done a few days before I sent out a newsletter notification.
