Editing topic and subtopic covers

This support page is about Prezi Next. If you’re looking for help with Prezi Classic, please click here.

A great feature in Prezi Next is the ability to reveal details of a topic exactly when the timing is perfect for your presentation. One way to do this is by editing your topic and subtopic covers to add images, text, or other objects. You can also customize your topic and subtopic covers by turning them into an image.

Topic covers come with a preset shape and color scheme according to your template and can be set automatically or changed manually. Automatic covers take the largest text of a topic or subtopic and make it appear as the title. You can edit covers by adding objects, images, and text. When zooming into the topic or subtopic, the cover will fade out and, in effect, create a more dramatic zoom reveal.

Note: Only planet and stack covers can be edited. The pages within a stack don’t have covers.

Editing covers

  1. From the editor, click on the topic or subtopic to bring up the context toolbar. Then click on the “Topic cover settings” icon.
  2. In the pop-up menu, select Custom.
  3. Click Edit cover content...Alternatively, you can right-click on the topic or subtopic and select Edit topic cover....
  4. You can now add text or any object to the cover.

Tip: You can also click and drag items into the topic and subtopic area to have objects automatically added to the cover. If you’ve already edited the cover and want to make changes, you can follow the steps above or simply right-click and select Edit cover. You’ll be taken immediately to the cover-editing mode.

Using an image as your topic cover

You can easily make an image, icon, or other object as the topic cover by making the background transparent.

  1. Add an image, icon, or other object to your topic cover using the steps above.
  2. Click to select a topic, then click the “Fill color” icon in the context toolbar.
  3. Adjust the opacity to make the background transparent.

Note: If there is a border around your topic cover, click the “Border color” icon in the context toolbar to adjust its opacity.
