Hi there,
Since Prezi doesn't work in slide format, what you have designed is your starting point - it is your canvas, and you can continue adding to this and then create a path (with the Path function on the editing tool) to zoom around the different parts of your canvas.

On this canvas you can also zoom in to look at details, and then zoom out to give your audience the big picture.

With Path, you number the frames/parts/images/text of your canvas in the order in which you would like them to play.

Hope this helps!

Click the "Frames and arrows" menu bar and select "Invisible frame". Then, zoom out and use this tool to create a rectangle anywhere you please (as long as it is not covering a slide you already have up there). Once you have created this frame, a new slide should pop up on the left-hand "slide" editing column.

how do I add to the starting point? I'm using a colleague's Prezi and I've run out of slides and want to create new ones. Sorry I don't understand how to continue adding to my canvas. thanks, Becky

Want to add a new slide on Prezi? Easy. 1)Go the bubble menu that includes the "insert" option and the "path" option. 2) click on "frame" (pick the bracket or the shaded option, or whatever other choice) 3) after you click move your mouse to the desired spot on your canvas and draw the frame. 4) now update the path to include the new frame. 5) the second time you click on your new frame it will appear as a slide on your screen's left hand side.

Remember Prezi treats slide as "frames."

UUUUGGGGHHHHH. The new Prezi is impossible to navigate. All I want to do is zoom out to my first frame (the overview of the whole presentation) at the end of my presentation. I've spent over an hour on this. It should not be this difficult!

Hello Erika Henry,

if I understand you correctly - putting another path point on the first frame should do this for you? You can also drag the resultant path thumbnail to the end in the thumbnail viewer on the left hand side.

If you are still having problems please share the URL for the Prezi and I can take a look for you.
