The autosave is a pain. I understand that it is designed to keep people from losing there work and it does that very well.
It keeps people from having work to lose in the first place.
It seems like it would be very simple to add a function that would allow prezi users to disable this feature so they can get to work on their projects. I cannot move a word without Prezi deciding that it is time to auto save, and it takes a good minute to save during which I can not do anything on my computer.
I have looked around and you have told other people to use Chrome (which I do) and to close all other programs and windows. But if I close all my windows how can I look up the information that I am putting on my Prezi for school? How can I get pictures off the internet to add to my Prezi (because your picture adding system is sadly lacking, but that is a different issue)? How can I access my notes that I have typed up on a separate Word Document?
I liked Prezi for the freedom that it provided me to arrange my thoughts, the auto save feature makes this impossible and irritating. I don’t want to spend half an hour trying to arrange a slide. I want to be able to quickly move from one idem to the next without the stops that the auto save puts in place.
Very simply I would like a button that will disable autosave.
