@canvalachlan This is a great way to focus on the design tasks at hand! Are there any desktop specific features on the roadmap like comment desktop notifications?
@canvalachlan Woww... I will definitely use it 😊 Well is it build using electron???
@canvalachlan @andrew_whiteman1 great concept.thanks for this.
@moeamaya Thanks Moe! We're looking forward to rolling out a number of new features in the coming months to continually improve the native desktop experience. Stay tuned!
How is it different from the existing canva I am a big lover of Canva so I want to know how is it different?
@anjuligo Hi Anjuli! Right now, Canva for Desktop has the same functionality as the web version. The desktop app is a great way to focus on your designs without any distractions or navigating between too many tabs. We're looking forward to continually rolling out new features to build on the native desktop experience. Stay tuned!
Sweet. I assume this is an actual native app and not just a wrapped PWA based on the existing Canva web version, or something similar using electron, etc?
@mrdntlxla Good luck getting an answer on this. Lachlan Andrews seems to be specifically dodging this question. :)
@mrdntlxla Yup - It's built on Electron, not sure where the "native experience" bit comes from. Still pretty decent, even if a bit heavy on RAM.
@mrdntlxla Hi Michael! The desktop app is built on web technologies. Being a native app, we're also able to build features and integrations that aren't currently possible with Canva in the browser. We're really excited to continue building on these now that the first phase of Canva's desktop experience has been launched!
I've been using it for at least a month now and so far, so good. Is spell check (desktop version) on the horizon?
@carajoy_nash Hi Cara! We're continually updating the desktop app with new features. Stay tuned!
You guys have nailed it, this is a much needed solution
