Depth limit for topics and subtopics

What is the ‘depth’ limit (or is there one?) that I can go to with Prezi Next?

Add Subtopic, choose planet, zoom in, add subtopic choose planet zoom in. I am not just looking for a limit, I want to use Prezi as a library tool to store information. Any limitations or insights?

I’m curious about this as well, I have some pretty layered presentations I’d like to put together, but have found little success. I inquired (on a call once) if there was a way to get file size information, as I would like to be aware of what the capabilities are, so I can at least build half of my goal and have smooth functioning, but I was more or less told file sizes don’t “exist” which I doubt very much, but ok.

So at the very least, an understanding of layer limits would be great, as I’m currently building a skeleton frame and trying to not provide content that’s too complicated, therefore bogging it down and crashing my browser.

Depending on the structure of your presentation, a number of layers can differ, however, for the best performance we do not suggest to go deeper than 5 layers within a topic.

Is there a limit to the number of subtopics you can have in a presentation? I am trying to make a presentation that has a lot of depth and at a certain point the presentation gets extremely shaky and everything shifts over.

Hi @Christopher_Radel, I’ve merged your question to the relevant topic. Currently the limit is 7 layers in order to keep the best performance.

Here’s what’s going on, I’m trying to edit a sublayer of my presentation and I’m zoomed out so far I cannot edit and this message pops up saying "zoom limit reached, if anyone knows a solution I’d love to hear it.

Hello @Mattheau_Faught, I merged your post with the relevant thread. Please, check the reply above :slight_smile:

I get halfway through my presentation and then the zoom goes to the background, not the content, for about 20 slide changes. If I go back to edit mode, everything reappears as before.

Hi @Adri57, could you please share the link to the presentation so I can check on it?
You can also share it privately if you’d prefer that way.

Unfortunately I’ve done something in these 24 hours since I’ve been trying to fix it, so I’ve also lost a lot of content.
It zooms into the background from the last few slides onwards, and any new content can’t be seen anymore but only in presentation mode. In edit mode I can see everything.
Another thing, yesterday and this morning, none of the slides had “delete” on their right-click menu.
Thanks for your help!

Hi @Adri57, I’ve merged your question to the relevant topic.

As I see the issue is coming from the fact that the zoom level of the presentation is too deep.

I would advise you to take the subtopics and paste them on higher levels as the amount of zooming in reaching the limits of our engine.

Hope this helps!

I used the tip regarding using subtopics to bypass the feature that takes the presentation back and forth to the parent slide between topics. The portion of my presentation that I will present contain 16 slides (each slide is a subtopic of a subtopic) and the last 16 slides is the backwards path back to the home slide. I am experiencing two problems and I am not sure if they are related, but my best guess is that they may be caused by the use of too many subtopics.

1st problem- in edit mode, as I move through the subtopics, once I get to about the 12th slide it starts to become difficult to place content where I want it to go and on the 16th slide I am unable to move any content around.

2nd problem- in present mode, when I take too long to move to the next slide the presentation stops moving forward. The little icon at the bottom shows that I am moving through the presentation, but nothing is actually changing on the screen.

I can’t quite figure out what the issue is. Please help.

Hello, @Sadia_O_Neal I have merged your post to the relevant thread.

Could you please check the answer above?

To summarize - the glitches that are occurring are due to the presentation having too many subtopics that follow each other. I would suggest restructuring your presentation in this case.

Let me know if you need further help!

Hi everyone,

On a few of my presentation slides I cannot move any of the text or images at all. I have allowed flash, pop-ups and cookies, restarted computer, changed computers, alternated browsers, downloaded Prezi next and nothing will work. Please help me!!!

Hello @Naomi_Parker, could you please send us the title of the presentation and one of the slides where this is happening so we can further investigate it?

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you for your response. It is titled ‘NAOMI PARKER VIT 2021’ and it occurring on page 17 and 81. Thanks.

Everything was working fine, then when I added a new subtopic, the slide started shaking and it zoomed way off to the side of the topic shape. Now whenever I try to insert or edit something, I am unable to resize or move them, whether it’s a topic shape, an image, or a textbox.

This happens both on the website and on the desktop Prezi Next app.

Can this be fixed? Thanks-Chelsea
