Just a moment...

If you want to zoom around the Prezi canvas with your keyboard you can use the shortcut keys.

Most shortcuts in Prezi are single stroke, which means there is no need to press any additional modifier keys (Alt, Ctrl, Command, etc.).
Please note: shortcuts are turned off by default, click on the options tab in the top right corner of the Prezi Editor and click 'On' to enable them.
