Present Your Design

Easily present your reports, pitch decks, and more:

  1. Create or open an existing presentation.
  2. Click Present from the top corner of the editor.
  3. Optional: Select a presentation type from the Type dropdown.
  4. Click Present.

Use responsive presentation templates to present decks and presentations both on mobile devices and on bigger screens.

If you are not using a presentation template, click the white ••• button at the top corner of the editor, and select Present to present your design.

Use the left and right arrows to change slides.
Add an interactive layer to your presentations by setting up Canva Live. Canva Live lets your audience ask you questions while you present.

Tip: Easily present multiple presentations by adding them to a playlist.

When presenting, press the following shortcuts on your keyboard for magic effects:

  • Letter C for confetti rain
  • Letter D for a drumroll animation
  • Letter O for floating bubbles
  • Letter Q for quiet
  • Letter B to blur the current slide
  • Any number for a timer (1 for one minute, 2 for two minutes, etc.)

You can also press Shift + / or ? on your keyboard to open the magic effects menu.

To exit presentation mode, press ESC on your keyboard.
