Is it time to pitch your sales presentation to clients? Perhaps you want to display your designs on a projector to show your social media mockup posts? Maybe you're in a conference and would like to showcase your ideas?
Presentation mode is now live!
Create a presentation by using a template, applying a beautifully designed layout, and embedding your YouTube videos or webpages. From here you can showcase your masterpiece on our full screen presentation mode.
Create a presentation
To create a new presentation, click on the presentation template. It can be found by clicking More... and under Popular design types or Documents.
Note: Presentation Mode is not limited to the Presentation template. Feel free to use other templates if you like!
Select a layout
You’ll find a wide array of layouts (single paged and multi-paged) on the object panel of the editor. Scroll through the layout pane and click on the multi-paged layouts to preview them as these contain up to 10 pages.
You can then select which layout you'd like to use in your design by clicking or dragging and dropping it into your design.
Activate Presentation Mode
Your Canva design can expand to fill your entire screen with the Presentation Mode. Simply click the presentation button next to the zoom settings at the bottom-right corner of the editor.
You can navigate through your presentation by clicking on the left and right arrows on the control menu if you have a multi-paged design. Alternatively, you can press your keyboard’s left and right arrow keys to navigate between slides.
To exit Presentation Mode, click the exit presentation button on the control menu or press the Esc button on your keyboard.
Embed a YouTube video
