I’m suspect that the change from Prezi classic to it’s new form (HTML5?) meant that the developers had to accept some limitations or find new clever ways to program around them. In any case the limitations and the user experience has changed significantly for the worse. This bums me out because I’ve loved Prezi since the beginning back when the menu items were little animated Mandelbrot-like disks.
I’m finding that not only does Next move objects when you move pages, it also changes the size of the objects. That makes Lana’s solution work only if objects are the same size and in linear order. (I also have to move an graphic element and the topic zoom area to even get at a text box to edit.)
It seems to me that all I got for Prezi Next is a new model of interaction that doesn’t quite work smoothly. I’m wondering whether its worth going back to Classic and make things work the way I want them to? What exactly is different enough that it’s worth putting up with these things?
I don’t program HTML5 or whatever it is, but is this something that cannot be fixed? I also suspect that Prezi classic is Flash and that’s going away in 2020. I do hope Prezi can get back on track; I’d have to be involuntarily committed to a mental hospital before I’d go to PowerPoint.
