Stop zooming out to the 'overview' page?

Man I hear you. How is it possible they released this with such a MAJOR flaw? The entire point of PREZI is the flow; the ability to dig into levels and create depth and complexity to your presentation. This completely ruins that. At least there is Classic Prezi.

It’s like Adobe released a new version of Photoshop with zero filters.

…oh and you can’t even migrate NEXT to the Classic version. So the hours you spent working on your masterpiece are wasted. Seems inconceivable they would have released NEXT with such a flawed process. What client wants to see the home screen 20 times during a presentation? How did these folks sit in a boardroom and show off their new software and everyone say, “yeah, that’s great. We particularly love how it goes back to the home screen between EVERY single transition. Let’s get this out to the public now”

This is exactly why my boss pulled the plug for Prezi and we no longer use nor promos Prezi to all of our clients. It is really sad since some have been asking why we do not use it any longer. . . :frowning:

Dear community, we are happy to announce that our development team is currently working on this feature and as soon as we have any updates we will post it here :slight_smile:

I have created two topics (with a single sub-topic but when I run the presentation, it follows the following flow:

Overview > Topic 1 > Sub Topic 1 > Overview > Topic 2

What I would like is to follow:

Overview > Topic 1 > Sub Topic 1 > Topic 2

Hello @Scott_Matthews, I merged your post with the relevant thread. Currently what you are trying to do is not possible in Prezi Next, but as I mentioned above, our development team is currently working on this feature :slight_smile:

Meanwhile, what we can offer as a workaround is moving everything into one topic and using subtopics, as shown in this example.

Thank you! That helped. I ended up doing something similar as my work around. I was able to broaden the ‘Topic Zone Area’ to cover the whole background and then spread out my ‘Sub Topics’. It was time consuming (Plus it’s been years since I used Prezi and had to relearn it)and basic but it’s an other workaround till they update it. Check out my Prezi for an example.

Happy Prezing! :slight_smile:

Hello community, we have some updates for you :slight_smile: This feature is currently being tested, and as soon as we have more details we will share it here.

Hi all,

I’m happy to share that today we released a new feature called Simple Path Flexibility. This is our first step towards allowing you to have a more flexible path in Prezi Next.
With this feature, you can configure per prezi how the camera should move through your topics: you can decide to always go back to the previous level both on the overview and subtopic levels, or never go out, and build a prezi that has a similar path to what you had in Classic. You can find the ‘Path settings’ button at the bottom of your path sidebar.
We know this will only solve some of your requests, but as I mentioned, this is only our first step. We aim to make the path more flexible per step in our upcoming projects. We will keep you updated!


I’d be happy to know what you think!

Best, Zsuzsa


I selected the option to zoom directly to the next topic, but even so, on some topics the presentation goes back to the home screen. What do I do?

Hello @julia_grandizoli, I merged your post with the relevant thread. Could you please send us the title of the presentation so we can investigate it?

Hi Julia,

If you never want to return to the overview step, you have to setup the path setting the following way:

Let us know if it didn’t work.


This is a great solution to part of the problem. I sometimes like to create presentations where the “overview” or tapestry gets revealed over time instead of being the starting point. In other words, is it possible to create a presentation where I start off in some small part of the /prezi and gradually zoom out or reveal the whole background such that the LAST slide is effectively what you have labelled the “Overview?”

Hi @Illan_Kramer, I think a custom starting point can help you achieve this goal. :slight_smile:
You can check how to set it up in this article.
Hope this helps!

How can I delete the zoom out animation from slides? Every subtopic slides are zoom in first and then zoom out, and then i can go to the next slide and experience the same process again and again. I didn’t find any zoom out buttons in the tag ‘after xxx slide’. An interesting thing is when I preview the templates, there was not that much zoom out animations. But once I click on use this template, all things changed.

Hello @coolybreaker, I merged your post with the relevant thread. Both in the overview and subtopic level, you’re able to choose for the path to zoom directly to the next topic, as you can see here.

Hope this could help!

Hi Zsuzsa,
I have done just this and still my subtopic stack is ending with returning to the overview, when I don’t want it to? Please help.
With thanks

Hello @Stu_Walker, did you select both of these options? :slight_smile:

Yes, I selected as in the image - both options.

@Stu_Walker could you please send us the title of the presentation and the name of the topic, so we can look into this?
