Using presenter notes online

Need a cue? Add presenter notes to your presentation as reminders to highlight key information and to help you practice and prepare. While presenting, you will be the only one that sees them, helping you deliver an impressive presentation with maximum confidence. 

Paid feature: Presenter notes are available for users with a Plus or higher Prezi 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 presenter notes

Click on the More button on the Top menu bar and select Presenter notes. You can also add presenter notes to any step of the presentation from the timeline. Select the frame, topic, or animation thumbnail you want to add a note to. Click on the three vertical buttons to open options and select Presenter notes.

Type your notes into the text box in the sidebar. Presenter notes always appear on the presentation step they were added to. You can see what presentation step you’re adding notes to using the image preview above the text box. Presenter notes automatically save as you type and can be edited and viewed by anyone with editing rights to your presentation. 

When finished, click the X in the upper right corner of the sidebar to close presenter notes. You will see a little note icon appear next to each presentation step thumbnail where you added presenter notes in the left sidebar.

Viewing your notes in Presenter View

To access your notes while presenting or practicing, click the Present button and select Presenter view from the dropdown menu. This will open the presentation in Presenter view and Present view. Present view is the window your audience will see while you’re presenting; it does not include your notes. Make sure to share the right window when using a projector or screen sharing with a video conferencing tool.

Presenter view breaks down your presentation into individual steps with your notes on the side. It also includes a timer that you can reset while practicing. You can increase or reduce the size of your notes to make them easy to read. The arrows on the bottom of Presenter view help you navigate your content.

Automatic scrolling in Presenter View

Your presenter notes can automatically scroll while you’re in presenter view to make it easier than ever to time your presentation. This also allows you to use presenter view as a teleprompter from a second screen.

To enable this, open your presentation in Presenter view and click Fullscreen presenter notes. This will expand your notes to take up the presenter view. 

From here, click Auto scrolling to start. You can adjust the speed your text moves at using the bar nearby.
