The Twinkl Symbols Web Tool has a number of features to help you make your own resources. The information on this page will help you to edit your resources via the Twinkl Symbols Web Tool.
The video below demonstrates how to edit a resource.
How do I add and move symbols?
To add a symbol to your resource, click on the box you would like to add the symbol to then search for the symbol you need via the symbols tab on the left of the screen. Once you have found your symbol, click on it and it will be added to the box on the resource.
To move a symbol on your resource, click on the symbol so that a blue box appears around it, then click, hold and drag the item to the place you want it on your resource.
How do I remove/delete an item?
To remove or delete an item, click on the symbol so that a blue box appears around it, then either click the rubbish bin icon from the options above the resource or press the delete key on your keyboard or right-click on the symbol and select 'Delete' from the menu that appears.
How do I add and change text?
When searching for symbols, there is an option underneath the search bar called 'Add Symbol Label'. When the box is ticked, this will automatically add text underneath the image or symbol on your resource. You can add more text to the board by clicking on the text tab on the left of the screen. When you are happy with your text click 'Add New Text Box' underneath the text you have written.
To change the text on the resource, click on the text you want to change so that a blue box appears around it. The text tab will automatically open on the left of the screen. Highlight the text to change it and to also change the font, size and colour.
Can I upload my own images?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to upload your own images using the Twinkl Symbols Web Tool but you can upload your own images if you use the Twinkl Symbols for AAC mobile app. More information on using this version can be found here.
Can I change the colour and background of the boxes on my resource?
Although you cannot add a border or background pattern or colour to the entire resource, you can add a border and background colour of the boxes on your resource. To do this, click on the box and options will appear above the resource. Clicking on 'fill colour' will allow you to change the colour of the background and clicking on 'stroke colour' will allow you to change the colour of the border. There are also options to change the width or the border and the corner radius.
Can I duplicate an item on my resource?
You can duplicate an item on your resource by clicking on the item and clicking the 'copy' icon at the top of the page.
