Changing the shape of topics and subtopics in Prezi Present

Want to give your presentation a makeover but are short on time? It only takes a few clicks to change the look of your topics and subtopics to a variety of cool shapes that are sure to make your presentation pop.

Changing topic and subtopic shapes

  1. From the editor, click on the Style button at the top of your screen.

  2. Click the three dots (...) next to Topic shape to open the sidebar. 
Pro Tip: You can also click directly on the thumbnail to automatically refresh and randomly change shapes.
  1. From the sidebar, click on a shape to select it. You will see it update on your canvas. 
You should know: Changing the shape will update all the topics and subtopics in the presentation in order to keep a consistent look.

Topics you later add to the presentation will have the same shape. You can switch the topic shape anytime, regardless of using a pre-designed or a blank template


Using different shapes

If you want certain topics/subtopics to stand out from the rest, you can still change the shape of your topic by editing the topic cover. 

  1. Select a topic/subtopic and use the shortcut CMD+E on Mac / CTRL+E on Windows or Right-click (CMD/CTRL+click) and select Advanced topic editing from the context menu.

  2. Select the shape, and delete it by using the backspace (Windows) or delete (Mac) key or by right-clicking on the shape and selecting the Delete option from the context menu.

  3. Click the Insert button at the top of your screen, then select the Shape icon and click on a shape to add it to the topic cover.
