Adding text in Prezi Design

Give your designs a sense of structure by using text elements with predefined styles and a typographic hierarchy. This will let your audience navigate and understand your ideas more efficiently.

  1. From the editor, click the Add text button in the left-side toolbar.
  2. Hover over a text element and click Insert, or drag-and-drop it onto the canvas.
  3. Start typing right away, or double-click on the text box anytime to enter your text.

These are the available text objects:

  • Title: Used as a primary heading to name the design.
  • Subtitle: Used as a secondary heading to name sub-sections in your design.
  • Body text: Usually, the most read text element on the page. Make sure to derive other text element sizes from the body text size.
  • Caption text: Highlights the essence of a chart or map. Captions can be written in just a few words or a few sentences. Keep it short to be efficient.
  • Quote: A reproduction of what another person said or wrote. For example, use quotes to convey customer reviews.
  • Facts & Figures and Centered fact and figure: Both elements are text-based charts with icons. Best used to highlight interesting facts.
  • Table chart: A great option for displaying data with both textual and numeric columns.
