Welcome to the new Prezi Present editor where you can build presentations from scratch/from templates or convert PowerPoint and old Prezi Classic presentations to edit, share and present them in this new, more structured and interactive format.
As Adobe is discontinuing Flash at the end of 2020, we are forced to retire the Prezi Classic editor but Prezi Present is here to provide a more advanced alternative with most of your favorite Classic features and several additional functionalities available in the editor. Here's our quick start guide to the new Prezi Present editor and its main components.
The Prezi Present editor is divided into three main components that are intuitively designed for ease in creation and collaboration.
The top toolbar is where you can build and customize your presentation. From here, you can access additional options in the hamburger menu, change the title, and add/customize your content. It is also where you can present, share, and collaborate or turn your presentation into a video.
From the hamburger menu in the top left corner, you can start a new presentation, go back to the dashboard, save your work, copy, paste or search for elements within the presentation.
From the Style menu, you can update your background image, change the shape and layout of your topics and subtopics, set a color theme or update the text style throughout your presentation. By clicking Insert, you can add content to your presentation, including text, images, charts, video etc. Under Share, you'll find different sharing options, such as going to Present mode, creating a view link or inviting other users to collaborate.
Use the Create video button to convert your presentation into a video with Prezi Video and click Present to open the presentation in Present mode.
This toolbar changes depending on what you are editing in your presentation. You can use it to format text, edit the style and color of objects on your canvas, and add animations. The context menu (right-clicking on an object on the canvas) also changes depending on the type of content you selected.
The left sidebar allows you to add topics, subtopics and animations and to see+edit the step by step structure of your presentation. It provides a preview of the order your content and animations will appear and automatically changes to show where you are in your presentation's structure.
From here you can click on a thumbnail to navigate to specific content, or click and drag to reorder your topics and subtopics. You can also add or remove animations, audio or presenter notes to a given frame and change the path settings at the bottom of the sidebar.
Home and zoom out buttons
When editing a topic or subtopic, you can use the 'zoom out' icon at the right side of the editor to go back one level in the structure of your presentation or use the 'home' button to zoom out directly to the overview. You can also find and use the same buttons at the top of the left sidebar.
