I am attempting to upload a large PDF (in dimension, not file size) into Prezi as I love the navigation tools and would also like to guide users through the document.
Unfortunately, the PDF is displaying with some issues; there are issues with transparency, the text is a little crowded and some of the vector linework appears jagged.
While all other PDF viewers I have tested display the file correctly, none have Prezi’s navigation and guidance tools so I would love to stay within Prezi if possible.
For what it’s worth, the file has been created in and exported from Adobe Illustrator.
Here is the link to the presentation:
Would love any assistance/feedback
Have a nice day
Hello @DSRS_Admin, I can see some of the issues on the presentation file, could you please attach a screenshot of the issues just to make sure I can highlight all to our developers?
Thank you for the response.
The first set has the following issues:
- Curved/Smooth elements become jaggered
- Text is crowded
- Transparency issues where you can see overlapping
The second set specifically shows issues with transparency gradients
- The item becomes misshapen
- The gradient is irregular
Please let me know if you need any more info/files
Hello @DSRS_Admin, thanks for the details. I’ve forwarded this to our developers. We’ll update this thread once we have any news about the issue.
Thanks Bart, looking forward to it!
@DSRS_Admin The PDF export from Prezi Next Desktop has had defects and performance problems for a while. The PDF export via the web interface at prezi.com is more reliable.
Hey, thank you for the suggestion
Unfortunately this is specifically about issues importing PDFs into Prezi
Hello @DSRS_Admin ,
We have received a response from our developers; they said that the issue would stem from the fact that we do not support all PDF features.
The developers have successfully tested the following workarounds on Mac:
- Open the PDF with the default Mac PDF viewer and save it. This may simplify the structure of the PDF.
- If it does not help, do the same with Affinity Photo.
- If it is still not OK, then remove this text box from the pdf and add a new one (you would need to type the text again manually)
I hope this helps, let us know if you need further assistance!
