This video explains how to add a custom starting point to your Prezi, for times when you don't want to begin your presentation with the overview view.
- [Instructor] Normally when you go into present mode…to give your presentation,…your Prezi starts with the overview view…where you can see the entire topic layout on the canvas…and then when you press the space bar or right arrow,…you'll jump into the first topic you created…and you'll progress through your presentation from there.…There may be times, though,…when you'll want to start at a different point.…For example, if you're short of time…and want to skip the first couple of topics,…or if you don't want to reveal the entire canvas until later.…Now we know that you can click on any topic or object…to go right into it which is great for non-linear…or conversational presentations,…but if you want to jump right to a particular topic…as soon as you click the present button,…you can designate that topic as the starting point.…
Just right click on the topic, sub-topic,…or page here on the canvas, or you can also…right click on the thumbnails here on the left sidebar…and choose set as starting point.…Notice this puts a little play or present button…
