How to create a text block

There are multiple ways to quickly and easily add text to your presentations:

  • Click the Text button on the editor toolbar – or press T on your keyboard and a text block will appear.

  • Double click on a shape to add text in the center of that shape.

  • Paste text directly onto your slide. First, copy text from the source (e.g. a website or document) by pressing Command + C (or Control + C on Windows). Then, open your slide and press Command + V (or Control + V on Windows) to paste your text.

When you’re done writing your masterpiece, click anywhere on the slide or hit ESC twice to deselect the text box entirely.

How to edit the style

For quick edits, use the inline editor. Single-click a text block and you’ll find options to quickly change the style, size, color, alignment, and bold and italicize.

Double click a text block to make even more edits. Highlight your text and you’ll find options to change the size, color, alignment, add lists, bold + italicize, strikethrough, and create a link.

You can update the text style directly from the inline editor or the Design panel in the bubble bar. Keep in mind that text styles are determined by the active slide style.

How to add and delete a link

To create a text link, highlight the appropriate text, and select the link button from the inline editor. Enter a URL, press Enter/Return, and the highlighted text will transform into a link.

If you need to update the link or remove it entirely, head back to the link box, delete the link, and press Enter/Return or click the X button next to the link.

💡 To change the color of a link, highlight the appropriate text, and use the color picker in the inline editor or change the setting directly in your slide style for all link colors in your presentation.

How to edit fonts

To change the font family and find additional tools for editing text, click on Design in the bubble bar on the right, where you’ll see options to change the layout, style, font, alignment, size, opacity, and add a shadow.

If you have a custom font, we have a helpful article on uploading custom fonts here.

Smart text-wrapping

As text in one block flows onto another line, the blocks below will automatically move down the slide. This keeps content looking nice and eliminates the need to manually adjust the positioning of each text block. Read more about smart formatting here.

Does spelling count?

At the moment a spell check feature is currently not available. On that note, we do give you a heads up that a word looks a little funky by showing a red underline under a misspelled word.
