Say it with a Christmas Prezi


Make a copy of this reusable prezi, customize and send it to your friends. No need for stamps!

Regifting your Holiday present is not too nice. But reusing this Christmas Prezi is great! (and it's carbon neutral too).

Share the love!


Snap, right click menu, new copy paste

Three new features have been implemented to Prezi online editor:

1. Snap: It used to be harder to create a simple chart or align any objects with each other in Prezi. Now, as you rotate or move images, frames and text, they will automatically click into position with identical objects around. You can also adjust text to the size of other text boxes.

2. Right click menu: right click in the editor to activate a submenu that offers copy, paste, cut and delete.

3. Copy paste texts: now can use your computer's clipboard for copy paste. This means that you can copy any selection from your documents, the web, or any other applications and paste them to your editor with a click.

More privacy for Enjoy, Pro Prezi users

Prezi's Terms of Use document has now been updated--providing more privacy to our users. We had asked creators of public and private prezis to provide the same licenses in return for our service before. The new version handles public and private prezis separately. Let our friendly avatars explain the details for you in the prezi above!


New editor enhancements

We have implemented new features in the editor that make it easier to add text, move around elements and manage your growing prezi while zooming and panning. Let's see what's new:

1. Move objects around simply by dragging them with your mouse. No need to click on them and use the zebra.

2. Just click anywhere and start typing to add text. Double click still works, and is used to edit existing texts.

3. The "Escape" key of your keyboard just became smarter:
- pressing esc while typing finishes the text edit session and closes the textbox.
- pressing esc while the Zebra is over an object makes the Zebra disappear

4. Lock elements with zooming (photo above): as you zoom in and out and items get tiny or huge, they will fade out and get "locked". They will behave like the background (you cannot drag them or select them but you can write on them). Unlocking is easy: just zoom to the opposite direction. Hitting the "shift" key (for multiselect) or multiselect by the zebra "+" menu option unlocks every object
(locking is disabled in show mode, you won't see faded objects while presenting)

Video: Prezi Meeting in the classroom

Rob Newberry, Director of Education Technology at Chatsworth International School in Singapore, Apple Distinguished Educator, Prezi evangelist and all around good guy was one of the first testers of Prezi Meeting. After the feature went live, he immediately started to use it in the classroom. First he thought his grade 5 class how to use Prezi, then after getting good at it, he introduced Prezi Meeting - just a few days after it was launched. The kids said it was easy to learn, and they really enjoyed using it.

Rob believes that Prezi Meeting allows students to work with students in other classes, and then other schools, ultimately work with students in other countries around the world. Prezi is nothing new for Rob: as a teacher he finds it ultimately engaging - the way information is laid out makes it so much more accessible. Similarly, the fact that it is collaborative, can incorporate multimedia, and lends itself nicely for embedding in student's ePortfolios make it a very powerful tool for organization, presentation and displaying learning. After having used it for a few weeks, Rob thinks the best part of Prezi Meeting is that after one invite - that Prezi is always collaborative. He doesn't need to keep inviting students to collaborate, and once they invite each other - they are collaborators forever.
