I have a prezi that has an embeded PDF file. Works fine from IE 8. But on my iPad, iOS 4.2, the PDF does not display. I can view PDF files with several othet iPad apps but not within the prezi.

When you touch the App Store thumbnail you will see on the bottom right the Updates icon. Touch it and you'll see all the updates that are available for your installed applications. Update the one from Prezi. If the app is no longer install on your iPad, search for "Prezi Viewer" in the App Store with your iPad and install it.

Enjoy!

Hi Aykut,

is there more to this error message than "Failed to upload media"? Do you still have free storage space in your Prezi account? Are PreziDesktop, Adobe AIR and *.prezi.com allowed through your firewall?

I can try uploading it for you, if you sent the .pez file via some 1-click file hosting service and provide your Prezi user ID (the "Custom Link" on your"Settings & License" page).

Kind regards,

Katrin

Hi,

Great that you found a way to make the pdf includes work, BUT...

Is it possible that your own iPad workaround includes replacing all vector graphics with bitmaps? Because I'm working with a PDF as the background for my presentation and the iPad version of the Prezi looks all blurry.

Please try to keep the vector graphics on the iPad. :(

Hi There,

I'm using the Prezi online editor on Mozilla Firefox and have imported an enhanced graphic .pdf file that was created using Adobe Illustrator. The PDF looks great on the online editor, even when I zoom into various areas. I am trying to view the presentation on the Prezi for iPad, and when I zoom into areas, the PDF becomes blurry. I've tried importing the .pdf in various hi-res and low-res formats, also tried re-sizing the .pdf file, and none of those options have helped. What gives?

just for the record.
the workaround was to use high resolution pdf or jpg and use this, because we will convert pdf/swf files to bitmap on iPad devices.

I have been using a .pdf created in illustrator CS6 as a background image for my 'example' prezi and it is blurry on an iPad with the Prezi app downloaded yesterday. Is the only way round this to create a copy of my Prezi for iPads and use pixel file types while keeping my vector .pdf for the desktop version! Is this what you would recommend as it is potentially a very big issue?
I work for a presentation company with a few clients interested in this software and currently these bugs which have continuously come up are proving a big hassle and very unfavourable to encouraging Prezi use.

This picture is blurry, because we convert it to a bitmap on iPad.
This is a limitation.

I have a problem when the Prezi is converted/downloaded to pdf format. What happens is that all images that were placed within the prezi that were in pdf format do not show on the pdf version of the prezi, but it shows up fine on the screen presentation mode.

This does not make sense.

Please help urgently!
