When your presentation calls for some decorative background elements, lines to help show the epic flow of ideas, or a highlight to an important block of text, we have you covered.

Working with shapes

To add a shape, click the Shapes button in the editor toolbar, or press S on your keyboard.

For quick edits to shapes, use the inline editor. Click on a shape and you’ll find options to quickly edit the fill color, border color, and border width.

In the inline editor you can edit the color, width, and style of line shapes, as well as the direction and style of arrow heads.

Align the look of shapes and slide decorations by clicking on the add color button and sampling from your brand book, style guide, or any image using our color dropper. Alternatively, you can paste the following color formats:

  • HEX codes

  • RGBA values

  • HSLA colors

💡 Optionally press the Space key to see the RGB values.

Double-click a shape to add text inside the shape. Select the text and you’ll see options to change the size and color, add lists, bold and italicize, and create a link.

For even more editing options, click the options menu in the inline editor, or select Design in the bubble bar on the right-hand side. Here you’ll find options to edit the layout, where you can resize your shape manually in pixels, lock or unlock the aspect ratio, define the exact position of your shape, and rotate or flip your shape. In addition, you can change the fill and border colors, edit the design of your text, change the opacity of your shape, and add a drop shadow.

What are stickers?

We call them stickers because you can stick them anywhere in a presentation. They’re fun graphics meant to emphasize a point, break up the monotony of lots of text, or add some personality to your presentation.

To add a sticker, click the Sticker button on the top toolbar.

We’ve added lots of new stickers in a wide range of styles, so feel free to use as many as you like to give your presentation a punch of humor or color.

Once you’ve added a sticker, open the Design panel from the bubble bar to make any edits. You’ll see options to fine-tune the layout or opacity, and to move a sticker to the front or back if you’re layering a few different blocks.

You can also select any sticker in the Sticker menu and drag it into the perfect position on your slide.
