Prezi's smart zooming feature let you present in a free-form way, rather than constraining you to a path. In this method of presenting, Prezi is used as more of a interactive visual aid. As you move through your points, you can click on items to zoom in on them. An Prezi will find the best possible view of the object, centering it and rotating it to its orientation. Click on the background again to zoom back out. You can pan from one area to another just by clicking and dragging the canvas, just as you do in the editor. You can also use the up an down arrow keys on your keyboard, to zoom in and out.
If you're on a frame that's nested inside of, or slightly overlapping another frame, pressing the down key will zoom out to the closest frame that's larger than the one in focus. Pressing Cmd+Spacebar will zoom you out to show the entire canvas. You can switch to this type of presenting at any time even if you've built a path. Here's how. Say you're presenting and someone asks you a question about a specific topic that you'd covered a while back. You can zoom out to the full canvas then click on the element that you want to discuss.
Then if you want to start following your path from there, you can use the arrow keys. >> At New Obstacles Inc, we strive to support. >> And to jump back were you were, just zoom out again, click on the place where you left off, and resume your path again. Now to use this method effectively you really need to know your material inside and out and be comfortable with Prezi. But I've seen it done well and it's really when Prezi shines, allowing you to respond in real time to audience comments and questions, and reiterate points on the fly.
