Please add font sizes to the text editing window. With just the + and - to change sizes it makes it hard to get text the same size. Eyeballing it is not accurate! A format painter feature would also do the trick so you can set text and other formatting the same in different sections of the slide.
Thank you, Rachel, we understand it could make the editing process smoother, we’ll pass it on to the responsible team.
In the meantime, as a workaround, you can create a textbox with the ideal font size and copy-paste that textbox to keep the desired sizes for the other textual content.
Your workaround does not work. Copying and pasting text boxes does not preserve font sizes.
As long as there is text within the box I’ve gotten that to work for me. I also use the autosnap feature to resize, which is still a workaround, but I line up the top or bottom edge (of desired size & box being resized) for example, and drag to match the opposite. I’ve found that to work too; you just have to make sure the # line(s) are the same so that you’re resizing apples-to-apples.
Even if actual font sizes aren’t implemented, it was helpful in the Classic world when it would recognize and autosnap to the closest text box size within that frame/area when resizing. That might be a good option to look at for Next? Or, and perhaps this is overkill, what about an eydropper-like tool (such as in Adobe etc.) that you could utilize to copy text size/color with? I see a lot of potential there, even using for topic/subtopic colors & style presets… @Vanda tell me that wouldn’t be fun?
I’ve created a short gif on this workaround working, I hope it helps.
Great idea, as always, @Plastic_Ingenuity!
When styles are updated, they need to change already existing artwork too. I have tried to make headings, sub headings and body text consistent across an entire presentation, but find it really difficult when you update the style, yet it only updates going forwards.
I was going to put this suggestion online, but I forgot. Thanks!
It’s really difficult trying to preserve a uniform look throughout the subtopics.
Sadly, the font size issue is a deal breaker for me. I’m confused as to how such a feature was omitted in the first place. I’ve tried a few workarounds, including the one mentioned here, but it’s just too much of a hassle. I’d love to use Prezi for my business. I’d even pay to upgrade. But that definitely won’t happen until this is fixed.
We’d be sad to see you go, @Gary_White but understand the importance of this feature. We’ll update this thread with any news, hope you’ll give Prezi another try later!
Any updates on this feature? We are new users and not having font sizes seems like omission of a very basic feature available in all presentation software! Copy and pasting text boxes on another sub-topic etc also does not place them in the same spot. Perhaps another workaround can be allowing the duplication of entire subtopic/topics where all the content also gets duplicated?
Unfortunately, we do not have any updates, however, please know that you can copy and paste full topics and subtopics.
- Click to select the object that you want to copy.
- Press CTRL+C (Windows) or CMD+C (Mac). Alternatively, you can right-click and select “Copy” from the context menu.
- To paste, press CTRL+V (Windows) or CMD+V (Mac) or right-click and select “Paste” from the context menu.
Note: You can copy more than one object at a time by holding the SHIFT key and selecting multiple items on your canvas.
Another request for this feature. Having to suggest a ‘work around’ for a feature that has been in text editing software for 30+ years is very odd
Of course we ALL agree that you shouldn’t have to have a workaround just to specify a font size. This is so basic it’s truly remarkable it was left out of the product so far.
agree with Roger. It’s honestly kind of shocking that you can’t choose an actual size for the text. To the point that I assumed I was missing something; turns out it’s your product that is missing something essential.
New user here and already running into the issue with font size consistency, or inconsistency. When is this fix coming? The copy and paste workaround is quite buggy.
Hello @Justin_Euteneier, I understand and I apologize for the inconvenience. We have reported this feedback to our developers but currently do not have any updates on the issue unfortunately.
The workaround looks great, but it doesn’t work for me.
Hello @Holly_Harkener, I would suggest using the Ctrl+C - Ctrl+V (Windows) or cmd+c - cmd+v (Mac) shortcut to copy-paste in Prezi. Please let us know if you are still experiencing problems with this, we’ll be happy to help.
I’ll add to the chorus that it’s extremely frustrating that this hasn’t been fixed in the two years since it was first brought up. Seeing/controlling the text size is such a basic need and I’m not messing around with inconsistent workarounds. Why is this fix not a priority?!!
