The ability to create a drill-down view from high level to details is BRILLIANT.
We need more presentations that take advantage of this for explaining the big picture and keeping the details clear within it. Think of using Prezi to document a system design… software architecture… circuit schematic… using nested frames.
There are really just two reasons I don’t even try to use Prezi for these things:
The navigation paths are strictly linear, just like in PPT. I don’t know how to make a Prezi where I can jump up a level, then back down another branch, or to navigation from frame to one of the adjacent ones. A “jump to path #” or even an “up” navigation button would be enough.
Search and replace text. If we change the name of something in the design…
These are both general-purpose features that would open up a lot of new uses.
