Adding and reusing content in your library

New article coming soon We've made a few improvements to the Prezi Present editor that affect this article, so this article is currently being updated. Learn more about what's new here.

Your favorite things are worth hanging on to. Luckily, you can save the most memorable and frequently used elements of your presentation to your own personal Prezi library. All it takes is a click to add content to your collection and it will be there at your fingertips to reuse anytime.

Adding to your library

You can add topics, images, text, icons, shapes, videos, charts, PDFs, and even a combination of these items to your library to be able to access and reuse them in other presentations. 

With your presentation open, select the item you want to save. You can also select multiple objects at once by holding down the Shift key while clicking on them.

Once you select one or more items, the property bar will appear. Click the Add to my library button to add the selected item(s) to your library. You will see an animation of the item(s) being added to the collection.

Pro Tip: You can also right-click (CMD/CTRL+click) on any of the selected items to open the context menu and choose ‘Add to my library’ to add content to your collection.

Reusing your content

Once you’ve added your favorite elements to your library, you can reuse them easily by inserting them from the My library sidebar.

Click the More button from the Top menu bar and select My library. This will open the sidebar where you can browse through your saved elements by category or view them all at once. Click on an object to insert it or drag and drop it onto the canvas.

Accessing your library items from the dashboard

You can also view your content library directly from your Prezi dashboard. Just click the Library icon in the left sidebar to access your collection. In addition to the items saved while editing presentations, you can also find a selection of recommended frames, reusable videos created with Prezi Video and reusable presentations you might find useful.
