    Really like the Text Design feature! Would love to see the option of adding shapes with a motion fill to match the background in the future. I really love the “Extras” packs that have the shape overlays, but sometimes I am looking for one on a specific background that isn’t available so it would be awesome to be able to create it in here! Thanks for working hard to bring us cool features like this!

    Hi Ava,

    Have you tried inserting a shape, then turning down the opacity in CMG Editor? I think it will give you the look you’re going for today.

    Is there a format in the editor for Insta story format? Great job! Great Resource!

    The best option right now is to enter the Transform section and rotate a 16:9 graphic or crop/resize to 1080×1920.
