Twinkl Create has many features to help you make your own resources. The information below will help you to edit them.
How do I move an item on my resource?
Once you have selected an item on your resource, the padlock icon on the toolbar at the top will allow you to either unlock or lock it in place. Unlocking it will allow you to move or delete it on your resource, locking it will ensure it stays in place while adding additional items.
How can I remove/delete an item on my resource?
To remove an item on your resource, click on it so it is highlighted and then press the rubbish bin icon at the top. If you are unable to do this, you can select the ‘layers’ button on the right hand side of the Create window and a list of your items will be shown. Each item can then be deleted from the document individually by pressing the rubbish bin icon next to it.
If you are still unable to delete this it may be because it has been locked in place. In this case you will need to unlock it with the padlock icon on the top toolbar, then you are free to delete or move the item.
Can I filter by coloured/black and white images?
You can now filter the Twinkl Create images this way by checking the ‘Black and White’ tickbox on the image search.
Can I upload my own images?
This option is now available by selecting the images tab on the left hand side of the Create screen and choosing ‘My Image’.
How do I add text to a resource?
Once you have selected the text option tab on the left hand side, you can edit the text for your resource. Start by entering the text into the box then clicking 'Add New Text Box'. Your text will then appear on your resource. To edit this, highlight the text in the text box on the left and then make changes including font, size and colour. Please note the the colour of the text will only update once you have clicked out of the colour picker in the text tab.
You can also find a range of symbols and special characters in this section.
Can I add a word list to my resource?
This option is now available and can be found under the text tab on the left hand side.
How can I change the colour and outline of a shape?
Insert a shape using the shapes tab on the left hand side. From here, you can select the shape on your resource and use the options in the top toolbar to make changes.
Can I duplicate an object on my resource?
You can duplicate an object on your resource by selecting this and clicking the 'copy' icon at the top of the page.
How do I edit the background of my resource?
Select your chosen background pattern in the background tab on the left hand side. From here you can use the toolbar at the top to make changes to the primary and secondary colours and use the slider to change the size of the background pattern.
The video below shows how to use some of the features above to edit a label resource.
