How to use Desygner templates

What is a template?

A template is a pre-made design that you can use by editing its elements.

Are templates fully editable?

You can change just about any element in a template.

Learn the basics in this video:

Exploring templates

On the templates screen, you will find the available templates you can use for your design. They are grouped into two general categories: For Web and For Print. Under these categories are more specific types of templates that will help you find exactly the template that you are looking for.

Browse categories:

When you are in a template collection such as social media you will still find an array of different social media formats (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, etc.) If you are looking for a specific format or design you can type it on the main search bar. 

Search Bar

Choose your template

To start editing just put your mouse on the template you want and click on use. 

Choosing a template

I clicked on a template but it's not letting me edit it

Some of our templates are only available for the Pro+ plan and above so if you have a Free plan, Pro+ templates will be locked. You can distinguish Pro+ templates by looking for a crown icon they have on their bottom left corner.

Changing templates from the editor

Once we have been editing a template for a while, we can get tired of it or even think that maybe it is not the right one. At the same time, we could ask ourselves: Why not try another template without having to leave the editor? Keep reading to know the process:

  1. Select a design in which want to change the template.
  2. On the left side menu, choose Templates.
  3. Change templates as many times as you want.
  4. Edit your new template.

  3. Click on this text field and type a new name.
