I'd like to be able to leave people with the overview Prezi, as a printout.

Is that possible?

That's a great idea...We could do the edit part of it before they load it into a presentation software. I like that idea. I'll relay it to my collegues who are getting excited about Prezi.

Thanks again

Has anyone else had trouble getting decent prints out of Prezi?

I have equations that I need, so I tried to bring them in as jpg, which is fuzzy.

Converting equations from eps to pdf then import works nicely. No pixellation apparent at all!

However, when dumping a PDF of the whole screen (no prezi path) the view gets very fuzzy and pixellated. Even native prezi text below about 12 pt is very pixellated.

Screen grab + conversion to PDF is not much better.

Any ideas? I would love to use this tool but if I can't get better printing out of it, I may be a bit limited. Am I doing something wrong?

I think I found a kludgy solution.

My goal was to make overviews / reviews for lectures in Prezi. Give students an idea cloud with some text / images / equations / block diagrams. Maybe even let them use a printout of the cloud as a cheat sheet in the class. But to cram a semester's worth of topic overviews onto a single page, the slide will be pretty cramped. Doing it in Prezi, the printout is pixelated.

Solution:

I can make a pdf in powerpoint with the text, images, equations, block diagrams they need. This can be printed as normal. Powerpoint now handles eps pretty well, and makes nice pdfs that are not blurry / pixelated.

I can import that pdf into Prezi, which renders pdf very well.

I can make a bunch of frames for my topics / lectures. Add hidden frames on my pdf I imported. Add extra detailed information in Prezi, like examples or whatever.

Then tie them all together with a path. Since lectures start from a single block, you just have to click on the topic you want to start from to see that section of the class overview.

Students can still have the overview slide hard copy. They can review the topic intros, including extra info online as needed. I can jump directly to a topic easily enough.

How do you begin a presentation with the overview of the Prezi? Amateur here!

Jade, the simplest approach is to put a frame (invisible or otherwise) around the entire presentation and make that point one on your path

Yes I too would like to print a poster sized version of my prezis... and have the text in that PDF as selectable / editable - not just a bit map.

Any chance of this happening?

This issue dosn't seem to have been fully answered yet? I have the same issue as many here - fuzzy/pixalated text when printing out from prezi (in any way - pdf, print screen etc). Is there a way to embed native prezi fonts into pdf's so they are not blurry or fuzzy on a print out? I love prezi but I don't have the time to recreate the same content into powerpoint in order to have handouts or posters.
