Prezi Present is an immersive presentation thatallows you to go through your content linearly or

conversationally present and zoom anywhere anytime. From your dashboard choose Prezi Present

on the left. Choose to start with a template, a blankcanvas or even convert an existing PowerPoint deck.

Let's start with the template. Choose from one of Prezi's library of templates

including ones optimized for video so youcan easily import it into Prezi Video and

present it live in a video conference or record a video presentation to send async.

Once you've found the right one click on 'usethis template' to start making it your own.

Let's start with the overview of your template. Over on the left the sidebar shows the order in

which your content will appear when you present. This includes topics as well as animations.

Let's start with topics. There are two types oftopics you can add in Prezi: planets and stacks.

Let's start by adding a planet. Planets havesubtopics that orbit the main idea and are best

used to separate related content. Use this typeif you want to break your topic up into subtopics,

jump to areas of your content or give youraudience a preview of your main ideas for better

orientation. You can easily add new topics anddelete or reorder them right here in the sidebar.

Zoom into a topic to reorder or delete subtopics.

To present your content more linearly try using a stack topic.

Stack topics are similar to slides perfect forlinear presenting. With a stack you'll have pages

to add your content to. If you need to you canreorder your topics or subtopics by dragging

and dropping them up or down the sidebar, here. you can also delete them but this will also

delete the content within. Next let's focus on thethree buttons at the top: style, insert and share.

With style you can make your content fit yourstyle or even your company's brand by changing

the background image, the shape of your topicsand even choose a color scheme and set of fonts.

your content stand out. Let's start adding somecontent. First we'll add a text box. Each text box

can be fully customized by using the options here.Change the font style or even color of your text.

one that fits your content and drag and drop itanywhere on the canvas. Whenever you add an object

to your canvas you can easily modify it. Move anyelement around by simply clicking and dragging it.

an object from your presentation. You can alsomake your content more dynamic by animating it.
