Changing Topic Name

I am trying to change the topic name and it will not let me. Does anyone know how to?!

To change the topic title, click once on the topic, wait a second then click again. This will let you edit the topic cover where you can select the title and change it. It’s a little tricky to select. If you click too fast (double-click) you will zoom right into the topic.

How can I edit the name of the topic?

Never mind, but I find the way to do that…:sweat_smile:

But can anyone take a pic for it , for the benefit of other beginners :):grin:

@fatema_a Happy to hear that the issue has been resolved!

I can recommend you to check this Knowledge Base article to learn how to edit topic titles and topic covers in general. I hope this helps!

I tried this and I cannot change the topic name no matter what I do???
I’ve looked up tutorials and the interface looks different. I am so confused and frustrated! Please help!

I made a video for you to see how to Change a Prezi Topic Title. Let me know if this helps.
Robin Pierman,

Thank You! I think I realize my frustration-I don’t have a topic title??? I have nothing to change on the Prezi Canvas and when I try to do what you did-I can’t –there is just an X.

On the left side-all I see is untitled topic title.

Any suggestions?Capture

Insert a text box and enter your title. Then drag the text box over the top of the topic and drop it. That will display the new title in the topic cover and also name the topic in the left sidebar. :slight_smile:

That worked!

How do I change the titles in the templates, please?
Please see image enclosed. I have circled in red the titles I’m referring too, and also shown them with arrow.

Hi Catarina,

Hi Robin, I am sure you want to help, but the video of your former post is actually private. I guess because you want to be payed to show it. The latter suggestion is not working, because if you write a text and the try to drag it on a topic cover, the topic cover, as you certainly know, enlarges itself and the text enter inside the topic and is no more visible outside

Hello to all.
I found by myself the simplest solution.
If you have accidentally deleted the text box in the cover of a topic or subtopic, you move the mouse on the topic itself.
With a right click you open the context menu, you will choose the option “Advanced topic editing”.
Then you move the mouse to “Insert” and you press “Text”: Eventually a new text box appears on the topic cover, allowing you to write the title of the topic. Hoping this could help others! No videos and no subscriptions are required. :laughing: :laughing:
