How To Continue Numbering In Canva

Canva has proven to be one of the most convenient tools for creating engaging visuals for both personal and professional use. It offers a host of features including list creation and the ability to continue numbering. This article will guide you through the step-by-step process on how to continue numbering in Canva.

Step 1: Accessing Your Canva Design

Begin by logging into your Canva account and selecting the design you would like to add numbers to. If you have yet to create a design, simply click on the ‘Create a Design’ button on the top right corner of the page.

Step 2: Using the Text Tool

Once you have your design open, click on the ‘Text’ tool on the left side menu. This will bring up various text boxes that you can add to your design.

Step 3: Adding a Numbered List

Select the text box you want to add the list to, and then click on the list icon at the top of the screen. Choose the numbered list option. This will automatically start your list at number 1.

Step 4: Continuing Your Numbering

To continue numbering, simply hit ‘Enter’ after each point to automatically add the next number. If you need to start your numbering from a specific number, just type it in before the first point on your list. Canva will automatically continue the numbering from there.

So, if you want to start your list at number 5, for instance, you would type “5. Your first point” and hit ‘Enter’. Canva will then start the next point at number 6.


Continuing numbering in Canva is a straightforward process. While it might seem a bit challenging at first, with practice, it will become second nature. I hope this guide has been helpful in your journey to becoming a Canva pro.
