You can create great presentations in Canva – either by starting from scratch or using one of their templates. In this post, I’m going to go through how you can create a multiple choice quiz during a presentation in Canva, and easily dim the incorrect/wrong answers! Quizzes and questions are a great way to make your presentations more interactive and involve your audience.

Time needed: 2 minutes

  1. Create your multiple choice question on a slide in a presentation

  2. Click on the three dots (the more icon) in the top right-hand corner of your slide in the outline (at the bottom of your screen)


  3. Choose Duplicate (or press Ctrl + D)

  4. Click on Slide 2

    Click on slide 2

  5. Select an incorrect answer (click on it)

    select text

  6. Click on the Transparency icon (top right-hand corner)

  7. Use the transparency slider to reduce the opacity

  8. Repeat steps 5-7 until all of your incorrect answers are faded

  9. If you want, you could make the correct answer stand out more.
    You could change the colour for example, or click on animate and choose an animate option for it.

  10. Click on Slide 1

  11. Click on Present, then present again (or use the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + P)


  12. Your question slide should be visible. When you want to reveal the correct answer, press the spacebar to move to slide 2

Note – this works better if you simply move from the slide with all of the answers to the slide with the faded answers with no effects.
