How to Use the Prezi Path Tool

By Stephanie Diamond

Part of Prezi For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Prezi has a Path tool that you use to set up and follow your storyline. Specifically, the tool helps you set up Path numbers that move your presentation from element to element regardless of proximity. That way you never lose your place. In addition, with a set Path you can send your Prezi to be viewed without a presenter and be assured it will be seen as you planned it.

To use the Path tool do the following:

  1. Click the Path bubble from the Prezi menu

    Three smaller bubbles — 1-2-3 Add, Capture View, and Delete All — open.

  2. To set up your path, click the 1-2-3-Add bubble.

    To start the path, click on the text or graphic you want to show first. It might be the title you created. Once you click it, the number 1 appears in a circle on top of the element you clicked. This represents the first area of the screen that will be shown.

  3. To set up the next area you want it to move to, click on that object.

    A circle with a 2 in it is placed on top of that area, and a line connects you from number 1 to number 2 so you can follow it. Continue clicking on objects until you have the path set up the way you want it. If you want the view to be the center of a grouping of objects, click the center of the Frame.
