Your workspace comes preloaded with professionally designed templates for you to use, but you can also create and save your own.

There are three ways to create a new template in Pitch.

From the editor

Click the presentation menu above the slide navigator and you’ll see an option to save your presentation as a template. Select that option, give your new template a name, and then click Convert to template.

From your workspace

Navigate to the presentation you want to turn into a template and click the options icon. Select Convert to template, give your new template a title, and then click Convert to template.

From the library

Navigate to the Templates folder in your Library. Here you can see all existing templates within the workspace.

To create a new one, select + Create Template and give your new template a name.You can either choose to build a branded template from scratch, or customize one of the existing templates from our gallery.

If you choose to build a branded template, you’ll have the option of choosing your brand colors and uploading fonts without needing to create a whole new style.

Select your brand colors and fonts, and upload any custom fonts you want available in the template.

Once you’ve aligned your template with your brand, select Choose slides to easily add a variety of slides in different categories from our Layouts tab.

Editing and using your template

Once you’ve created your own template, you can edit it from the Library folder. Click to open a template, then click Edit template to get started.

Edits made to a template will be included in presentations created with it moving forward. When you edit a template in the library, we'll pop up a quick reminder to let you know what you're working on isn't a single presentation.

This will open the Template editor.

Make sure to hit Publish at the top of the page after editing your template.

Your template will now appear in the template picker under the Library templates section at the top when you create a new presentation or choose Start with template.
