10. You can edit the text on the design by double-clicking on the text. A red textbox will appear and you can make edits to the text. Along the way, you can save your design by clicking on the grey SAVE DESIGN button in the upper left. The first time you save will prompt you to name your design.

11. To delete text, artwork, or any elements of the design, you can click on the text once and then click delete on your keyboard or click on the trashcan – second from the left on the top bar. If the text/artwork does not allow you to delete it, it may be locked on the design. Here’s how to unlock elements in the Design Center. Once things are unlocked, you can change/edit/resize it or delete it from the design. To select multiple items at the same time, simply select one item, then hold down control to select the other(s).

12. To add new text, click the TEXT tab on the left sidebar

13. To add artwork, click the ARTWORK tab on the left sidebar. Search in the search bar the type of artwork you’d like to add. Once you’ve found the artwork you want to add,  hover over the artwork and click the Red + Button to add the artwork to the design. The artwork tab will have lines and dots you can add to the design. Just search “lines” for lines and “dots” for a dotted grid.

15. To add a new shape or line, click the SHAPE tab on the left sidebar. Click on the shape to add it to the design.

16. You can rearrange the elements on the design to create the type of tables, lists, and schedules that you want for your week. For additional guidance see our Helpdesk articles:
