Don’t worry about creating 3 circle Venn diagrams, 4 circle Venn diagrams etc because you can easily add more circles by just dragging and dropping.

Once you’re in the editor select the text boxes “Set A”, “Set B” and name them the way you want. You can add more data to your Venn diagram by adding more text boxes. You can do that by clicking the “Text” icon in the top toolbar.

2.Adding colors to the Venn diagram

If you want to change the color of an object, select the object and click “Styles” at the top. Every row in the color palette is designed according to a theme.

For example the first row consist of rainbow colors, suitable for classroom work and memes. The second row consist of flat colors which is more suited for professional work. Sticking to one theme will give your Venn diagram a more professional look.

3. Adding more circles/sets

If you want to add more sets to your Venn diagram drag and drop a circle object from the “Basic Shapes” library to the left.

It should be first library by default but in case its not there you can load it using the “Get More Object” option at the bottom left.

4. Use “No Fill” for blank circles

Sometime you don’t want fancy colors in your Venn diagram. You just want a blank Venn diagram to add your data. Don’t worry we got your covered. Just use the “No Fill” check box in the “Fill” option and you’re good to go.

As you can see in the animation, you can also add colors to your circles using this option.

5. Using “Fade” to add transparency

The image displays it well. You can use this to make object transparent and show what’s behind that object. Notice how the colors of the intersections change when applying the fade? This allows you to show natural color combinations without picking and choosing colors for each intersection.
