Adding and editing story blocks

Need a little help figuring out how to visualize your content and build your presentation? We’ve all been there. Luckily, Prezi has hundreds of beautifully designed and ready-to-use story blocks to get you started. Just find the layout that best fits your message and add it to your canvas. All you have to do is insert your content to personalize it and watch your story come to life.

Paid feature: Story blocks are available for users with a Standard or higher Prezi Next plan. Luckily it’s a breeze to upgrade your license and get access to this and all the other great features our Prezi plans have to offer.

Adding story blocks

1. Navigate to the place in your presentation where you’d like to add a story block. 

Is the story blocks icon grayed out? Please note that you can only add story blocks to subtopics and not to the overview. This means you must enter a topic in your presentation's structure to add a story block.

2. Click the Insert button at the top of your screen, then select the Story blocks icon.

3. Search by keyword or browse to find the right story block for your content.

4. Double-click on a story block to add it to your presentation. You can also drag+drop it directly onto your canvas.


Editing and modifying story blocks

Once added to your presentation, simply click on a placeholder within a story block to add your content and make it your own, including text, images, shapes, and icons.

You can also move, resize, and rotate a story block (or specific content within it).

To move

Click on the story block and drag it anywhere on the canvas. After you’ve moved it to where you would like it to be, release the mouse.

To resize

To adjust the size of a story block, click to select it and drag a corner to make it larger or smaller.

To rotate

Click on a story block to select it. Then hold down the ALTGr key (CTRL+right ALT) in Windows, or CMD for Mac, and drag one of the corners of the box up or down to turn it.

To delete

Click on the object you would like to delete. Then press BACKSPACE/DELETE on your keyboard. You can also right-click (CMD/CTRL+click) and select Delete from the context menu.
