When you present live on stage, moving along your prezi's path with a remote clicker (wireless presenter) creates a great presentation experience for your audience.

What you need to know when it comes to remote clickers:

  • Most remote clickers should work with Prezi as soon as you take them out of the box. If you have Flash 11.3 or a higher version installed, select Present mode and then click the "Allow" button on the Flash pop-up that appears at the top of the screen.  
  • Your prezi needs to have a predefined path in order to work with a remote clicker.
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed. Remote clickers will work with Prezi in Present mode if your version of Flash is 11.3 or higher. You can get the latest version of
    Flash Player here.
  • Remember to click the 'Allow' button at the top of the screen, once you enter Present mode.

Troubleshooting

  • If you have an Apple Remote you will need to reconfigure the buttons.

Tips:

In most cases, your prezi's path can be advanced by clicking 'LEFT' and 'RIGHT' on your remote. You can zoom in using the UP and DOWN keys. If your remote is reconfigurable, we recommend you set it up in this way for optimal performance:

  • Next path step: RIGHT key
  • Previous path step: LEFT key
  • Zoom in: UP key
  • Zoom out: DOWN key

Adding the keyboard shortcut ctrl+SPACE (alt+command+SPACE on a Mac) to your remote clicker, so that you can zoom out and display an overview of everything, can be a useful addition if your remote clicker enables custom keys.
