Using guides and the grid in Prezi Design

Structured content is so much easier to navigate. Before creating a new design, try to imagine what you want the result to look like. Ask yourself: what page size do I want to choose for my design? How do I want to structure my page? Answers to these questions will set you up for success and a beautifully organized visualization.

Using guides

  1. Click on the Grid button in the bottom left corner of the editor.
  2. Enable the Show guides option.
  3. Move objects around the page to adjust their position proportionately to each other.

Pro Tip: Start adding objects from the top left of the page. Use the first object to align all other objects.

Using the grid

  1. Click on the Grid button in the bottom left corner of the editor.
  2. Toggle on the Show grid option. You’ll see pink columns with lines appear on the canvas; use them to group and align objects.
  3. Use the Spacing slider to adjust the distance between the grid's columns and the Number of columns slider to choose how many columns you wish to appear on the canvas.

A good rule of thumb is to work with twice as many columns as groups you have. For instance, if you plan on dividing the page into two blocks, use at least 4 columns (2 for each block). That way, you can be more precise in arranging objects in each block, ensuring they are evenly aligned and with equal margins.
