Before making any presentation, it is advisable to create a Prezi account, since this way you will have access to many very useful functions and you can easily insert and edit text.

One of the most common and used functions in Prezi is to add text and in order to achieve this the first thing to do is double-click anywhere on the artboard where you want to add it. With the written text you can start to personalize it your way.

In case you put a text in the wrong place and you don’t like it, you can right click and delete it by selecting the delete option.

How to edit a text in Prezi?

In case you don’t like the text but you don’t want to delete it, but rather modify it, you can right-click and select the edit text option, right next to delete. Among the options that will be displayed we have the power to change the font style, size and color.

Enlarge or reduce a text

In the same way, you can expand the size with the + and – options that appear in the menu after clicking on the text. We can also move the text around by clicking on the hand that is between the + and – options.

Clicking on the text will display a toolbar. In this bar we will see an option of a large and a small A. When pressing the big one the letter will increase, while if we press the small one, the letter will decrease its size.

Another option to enlarge the text is to click on the text, select one of the corners, and drag to enlarge or shrink to reduce.

Simply select the hand option and then grab the text to move it anywhere in the workspace.

In each of the corners you will see that a small circle is generated. If we press it and move the mouse we will see that the text will begin to rotate . This option is useful to generate a slant effect in texts.
