While experimenting with this new way to make my prezi look good, I encountered a snag. When you choose one of the color-coordinated palettes, you would expect to see all the design elements change color. In many cases, everything but the topic colors changed when I selected a different color scheme. This did not make the prezi look good. It hardly changed anything at all. That’s because the default topics in the template I chose were not assigned to a style preset. If a topic isn’t assigned to a style, the color scheme won’t affect it at all. To correct this, you’ll need to manually assign each of your topics to one of five possible styles. Only then will you see them change colors along with the other objects in your prezi.
Here’s another thing that I’m hoping will be resolved. You can no longer set your own custom style presets for topics or shapes. Adding your own custom colors can make your prezi look good, but you’re limited to solid, opaque topics with no borders. Currently, there is no way to set a custom topic if you want it to have a border or a custom transparency level. If you want all your topics to be transparent, you’ll have to adjust the opacity for each topic. Likewise, if you want your shapes to have a border, you’ll have to format each one individually. Let’s hope Prezi
resolves this soon for those of us who prefer to use their own imaginations to make their prezi look good.
