Italics Formatting Grayed out




I am editing a time sensitive Prezi, and out of a need to use MLA formatting, I was disappointed to see that the italic formatting button is grayed out on the toolbar (please see the below image).
This occurs for the entire presentation. How can this issue be resolved?

Thank you in advance!
