Once logged in, creating your Prezi Presentation is the next logical step to take. And to do this, you should click on the Prezi tab. This then brings you to the environment where you can save your work (Prezis). Click on New Prezi, and then enter a description and a title for the Prezi. Afterwards, click again on New Prezi. You can double click on the empty platform to begin typing. Also you can edit the width of your text by dragging the arrows situated on the tool bar’s right hand-side. To have an image inserted, click on insert- this is located at the wheel’s menu. You have the option of either uploading an image or drawing a shape. Here you are presented with three options for drawing shapes.
The next page you see is the canvas upon which you will articulate your prezi together with user friendly tools. These tools are:

To print a Prezi, it is advisable to convert first to a PDF document before printing is done. In printing your Prezi, an entire path step will become a single page on PDF. A Prezi can be printed through the Prezi software for Windows/Mac and also through the online editor.
The printing process begins proper by selecting the icon marked share on the menu bar. When Prezi is through with the conversion of path steps to pages, you will then get a prompt requesting you to save the presentation. After you are done with clicking on Save PDF, a prompt requesting you to name your presentation will appear, together with a prompt as to where the file (PDF) should be saved. When you have successfully saved your Prezi presentation as a PDF document, you can now print. This you can do by using Adobe Reader or some other software that allows PDF.
