The presentation system uses system fonts. The default font is Helvetica Neue. The default monospace font is
Menlo in Keynote and
Roboto Mono in Google Slides.
Monospace fonts are used for quote attributions, code, and labels/eyebrow text.
Highlighting is great for indicating important points that you'd like your audience to remember from a statement or quote. In our system, highlights are represented by altering the color of the text.
All highlight colors come from the Primer color system. We've supplied a list of recommended highlight colors below.
When using a screenshot, it’s best to match the background. We suggest to take a screenshot on a similar color background or use a PNG with a transparent background as this will look the most seamless.
If you find yourself needing to use a specific image but the slide background doesn't match, you can change the background color to match the image's background color.
Images can be easily added to any presentation by simply drag and dropping, copy and pasting, or inserting from the toolbar in Keynote, Google Slides, and Figma.
