How To Download Canva Presentation As PPT

Downloading canva presentations in ppt format can be easily done as Canva itself gives us the ability to do so.

We just have to follow 2 simple steps mentioned below.

Step 1. Create Or Open Your Canva Presentation

The first step is to create your canva presentation or open up a pre-existing presentation inside canva.

  • If you don’t know how to create a beautiful presentation inside canva I suggest you watch this video by Thomas Garetz, as this article is not focused on presentation design.

In order to open your presentation inside canva you have to log in to your canva account using your username and password and after login in on the homepage itself you’ll see your recent designs, just click on your presentation and open it up in the canva editor.

Step 2: Download The Presentation as Microsoft PowerPoint (PPT)

So what you usually do to download a design from canva is you click on the “Share” button from the top right corner and then click on the “Download” button, choose your file type, and download your design.

But you cannot download your design in PPT format by following this method.

So how can you download your canva presentation as PPT?

Well first, click on the “Share” button from the top right corner as you always do but instead of clicking the “Download” button you have to click on the “More” button.

After that you will see a ton of options, don’t get confused, just tap the search bar at the top and search for “PPT”, you will see an option for “Microsoft PowerPoint“, click on that and your presentation will be downloaded in PPT format which you can open using Microsoft PowerPoint application.

How To Save Canva As ppt With Animation

Unfortunately, it is not possible to export the presentation from canva as a PPT by retaining all the animations you have created inside canva.


Because both canva and Microsoft PowerPoint are different software/tools owned by different companies, the way canva does animations in their platform is completely different from PowerPoint.

That means whatever animations you have done inside canva are not supported by PowerPoint and hence will not work.

So what’s the solution?

Well, the ideal solution is to export your canva presentation as PPT and then add the animations again in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How to save canva as ppt without changing fonts?

You may have noticed that whenever you download any canva presentation as PPT the fonts that you get inside the ppt were not exactly the same as they were in your canva presentation, why is that? and what’s the solution?

Well, that happens because the font files (usually have .ttf and .otf extensions) of the fonts that you have used on canva don’t exist in your system (PC, Laptop, Mac, etc).

So in order to get the exact same font in your PPT, you need to download those font files from the internet and install them in your system before opening the PPT in your system.

2. Is canva better than PowerPoint?

Canva and PowerPoint are very different tools, with different features and capabilities.

Canva is a more user-friendly and intuitive tool for creating visual designs, such as infographics, social media posts, and marketing materials.

Canva does give you enough features to create presentations but PowerPoint, on the other hand, is primarily used for creating presentations, and it has more advanced features for adding animations, charts, and graphs.

Depending on the specific needs of your project, either tool could be better suited.
