Work with grids to organize your chart

Canva grids are especially helpful when creating comparison charts. To add your own grid into your design, head over to the elements tab on your objects panel and click on the “Grids” folder. Select the grid that best fits your comparison chart and add it to your design. 

Canva’s design grids are super versatile. You can fill grids with with photos or with solid colors then add text on top. Fill a box with a flat color by selecting the box and choosing a color from the palette or color wheel. Then, layer some text over it by going to the text tab and selecting any of the text holders or text formats offered.

Need to get a client’s or colleague’s feedback? It’s as easy as clicking the “Share” button to give them access to edit or comment on your chart. Anyone you choose to share your design with can access it from any computer, iPhone, iPad or Android devices.

Need to print your comparison chart? No problem. Once you are done editing just hit the ‘download’ button where you have the option of saving your finished design as a high-res PNG or PDF file.  Send that to your printer or email it directly to your client or team by clicking the share button.

Once all elements are grouped, click on the arrange button and select whether to align: left, right, center, top, middle, or bottom. To set how you want the elements spaced evenly, click on the Horizontal or Vertical button.
