I would like to add code samples (with highlighted syntax) written in R! and Python to my Prezi.
Currently, I use one of the online or desktop syntax highlighter tools, create print screen and paste it to Prezi. However this solution has obvious drawback as the code is stored as a raster image, not a vector or text.
I’ve tried to export colored code to HTML and Word document and then copy it to Prezi. Unfortunately, when I paste it to Prezi, it is displayed as raw text without coloured syntax.
@Mateusz_Kedzior - convert your screen capture into a PDF first before inserting it into Prezi. It will give you a vector image.
Thank you for the suggestion, @Robin_Pierman! Yes, printing the sample from an editor to PDF is the best option (it’s available on macOS as a print device and you can find different ways to achieve the same on Windows here).
Sadly, this solution is completely untenable for most Software Developers since code-samples in software presentations need to be manipulated in small ways, many, many times as the presentation is refined. The lack of a good (or even workable) way to paste code-samples into Prezi presentations is the single reason that Prezi has not been embraced by the software develoment community en-mass. It is the reason that I have cancelled my subscription two years ago immediately after I subscribed.
If Prezi would allow pasting rich-formatted code, or even better, allow github-style Markdown code (like many online text editors including Prezi’s own community support Forum!) I would gladly adopt Prezi and suggest it to every software developer!
Hey @Alexander_Ioffe, thanks for your feedback, I’ve passed it on to our development team for further consideration. Until then I’m afraid the above solution would be the workaround
hi I’d like to insert my python code in a presentation so that it works as if it were runned.
there’s a way to do this? If yes i’d be glad if someone explained me how
