Prezi Classic Desktop 6

Prezi Classic Desktop for Windows 6.19.0.0 and Prezi Desktop for Mac 6.9

New: Prezi Desktop is now Prezi Classic Desktop. Same great desktop experience, different name. We’ve done this to make room for our new product, Prezi Next. Check out its release notes here.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.8.0

Fixed: Some users might have experienced a seemingly endless loading time while logging in to the app. We took care of that bug.

Prezi Desktop for Mac 6.8.29

Improved: We’ve updated the app for an optimized macOS 10.12.4 experience.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.6.0

Hotfix: And one last uppercut to a bug that wouldn’t let some new Pro users edit logos.

Hotfix: There was a bug that caused some stability issues. We had a few jabs left.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.4.0

Hotfix: There was a bug in the context menu, or right-click menu in the editor. We gave it a left hook.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.3.0

Hotfix: There were some login issues after our last release. This one should patch that up.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.2.0

Update: We’ve updated the menu from “Export to presentation” to “Download for presentation.” In case you’re wondering, we also call this making a portable presentation.

Fixed: The app was sometimes a little lethargic after coming back from sleep mode. We got out some winter blankets, so there should be no more freezing.

Prezi Desktop for Mac 6.8.28

New: In time for the spring collection, we’re giving the dashboard a great new design and user interface. Now you can simply rollover a presentation’s thumbnail to get more options.

Improved: We’ve gone up to a YouTube HTML5 player, so folks should have better playback.

Improved: There should be better communication between your Prezi and Facebook profiles. How many presentations have you shared?

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.1.0

Fixed: We took care of a bug that caused the spinner stay when you tried to add “Effects” to an image. We wheeled that bug out.

Prezi Desktop for Windows 6.18.0.0

New: In time for the spring collection, we’re giving the dashboard a great new design and user interface. Now you can simply rollover a presentation’s thumbnail to get more options.

Improved: Portable presentations now have better playback so your audio starts faster. Just another way to put you on a faster track to a successful presentation.

Prezi Desktop for Mac 6.8.27

Improved: We’ve updated the engine so you may notice an even smoother drive.

Fixed: There were some issues with inserting images while co-editing a presentation. If you experienced this issue, hope that bug didn’t frame your co-editor.

Prezi Desktop for Mac 6.8.26

Fixed: There were some minor stability improvements and bug fixes.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.25 for Mac

Fixed: Some media files weren’t packaged in exported portable prezis. We took care of this issue and made sure all files arrive together and safely.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.24 for Mac

Fixed: Portable prezis unexpectedly quit when played on Mac OS X 10.8.5. This bug will no longer crash your prezi’s viewing party.

Prezi Desktop 6.16.2.0 for Windows

Fixed: Some users had problems updating because it was, well, loopy. This release fixed that issue.

Prezi Desktop 6.16.1.0 for Windows and 6.8.23 for Mac

Improved: We’ve updated the engine and improved the performance of portable prezis. So now’s a great time to rev up your campaigns with great presentations.

Prezi Desktop 6.16.0.0 for Windows

Improved: We’ve enhanced background syncing so it performs better and is more stable.

Fixed: There was an issue when resizing large images in the editor. We’ve not only cut those bugs down to size, we put them out.

Prezi Desktop 6.15.1.0 for Windows and 6.8.22 for Mac

Prezi Desktop 6.8.21 for Mac

Fixed: There was an issue when trying to share a prezi from the editor. No more crashing parties for that bug.

Prezi Desktop 6.15.0 for Windows and 6.8.20 for Mac

Hotfix: There was an issue with exporting prezis for presentation using macOS Sierra. We moved that mountain, and now users can create portable prezis as normal.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.19 for Mac

Notice: We released a notification that MacOS 10.9 will not be supported in the next release. If you’re using OS 10.9, please update your operating system.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.15 for Mac

Fixed: A bug found its way to the license handling, so some users couldn’t log in even with a valid license. We showed that bug to the door, so all Mac users with valid licenses should now be good to go.

Prezi Desktop 6.14.3 for Windows

Improved: We’ve added a step when removing a collaborator to make sure you really want to remove the user from your prezi. Hopefully this will help prevent accidents resulting in awkward re-adds.

Fixed: Backgrounds with SWF images sometimes appeared blown up when downloaded as a prezi for presentation (portable prezi). They should now be downloading to normal size.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.14 for Mac

Hotfix: Some missing fonts were causing the app to crash. We were bold and put those typefaces back in places.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.13 for Mac

Fixed: Backgrounds with SWF images sometimes appeared blown up when downloaded as a prezi for presentation (portable prezi). They should now be downloading to normal size.

Fixed: Popovers crashed on OSX 10.9, so we popped out this fix.

Fixed: One of our log lines sometimes caused the app to crash, but fortunately users didn't have to wait long for the fix.

Prezi Desktop 6.14.0 for Windows

Fixed: Users couldn’t insert videos because YouTube changed their APIs. We changed these endpoints in the app, so now the video star won’t be killed.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.11 for Mac

Fixed: We’ve fixed an assertive bug that was causing the app to crash. While we were at it, we’ve added diagnostic logs.

Prezi Desktop 6.13.3 for Windows

Fixed: The app sometimes crashed on null reference. We’ve nullified the problem, and all is good.

Fixed: An older release corrupted prezi descriptors containing some of the prezi’s metadata such as creation date and owner. We’ve fixed the broken metadata and now prezis will appear as “Recovered” prezis, indicated in the title. If you see this, don’t worry, no content is modified.

Fixed: A flash code that checks memory use wrongly triggered an error message warning of insufficient memory and asking for the user to close tabs and other apps. Now there’s no false alarm.

Fixed: The third-party library app we use to help with our user interface was crashing at times. There’s no sleeping in the library, so we took care of it.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.10 for Mac

Fixed: There were some instances where splitting long network requests caused the app to crash. Breaking up is sometimes hard, but we came up with some algorithms that make it all work out smoothly and crash free.

Fixed: Some UI updates caused the app to freeze. We’ve burned those bugs.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.9 for Mac

New: We’ve made Prezi Classic Desktop compatible with macOS Sierra, so now users can also move mountains with their great prezis without worrying about the app crashing.

Fixed The app crashed while saving a prezi and logging out or sometimes when closing the editor. We put it back in check.

Fixed: Some folders refused to be deleted, but now, if you want them gone, they’ll go.

Fixed: There was a little bug that changed the color in the sidebar. The colors are back to normal.

Prezi Desktop 6.13.2 for Windows

Some SWF images were misplaced in prezis that were created more than two years ago and exported for presentation. We’ve made this more stable, so portable prezis are better than ever —regardless of when the prezi was created.

Prezi Desktop 6.13.1 for Windows

Fixed: There were minor issues with user authentication after a computer woke up from its nap. Now the cookie is refreshed and operation is more stable.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.8 for Mac

Fixed: We’ve run across a few minor stability issues and took care of them. While we were at it, we squashed a few bugs, too.

Prezi Desktop 6.13.0 for Windows

New: We’ve released a new version of a portable prezi (export for presentation).

Fixed: Some content went astray while copying and pasting images and video between prezis. We repaired the roads so content will no longer go missing.

Fixed: We fixed a bug that resulted in pesky gray boxes instead of images.

Fixed: We took care of error code #1090 that sometimes resulted in problems loading prezis with a lot of content. Now prezis with lots of cargo should experience smooth seas.

Prezi Desktop 6.8.7 for Mac

Fixed: There were some crashes when migrating prezis from Prezi for Windows/Mac (Desktop 5), in PEZ files, and while uploading prezis with videos, but now prezis are back up and flying high to their Prezi Desktop 6 destination and uploading is up and running.

Fixed: Some problems were reported in the UI during conflict resolution. We got everyone communicating and cooperating again. We also fixed a bug that appeared while copying images between prezis.

Prezi Desktop 6.12.1 for Windows

Fixed: We fixed a critical bug and some minor issues in syncing and editor asset loading. We also did some visual tweaking to the Edit and Present buttons on prezi thumbnails in the dashboard. Bugs squashed.

Improved: We saved the day and made save even better.

Prezi Desktop 6.12.0 for Windows

New: A new version of export for presentation, a.k.a. portable prezi, is out and better than ever. If you’re not sure what this is, read on and learn how to make your presentations that much easier.

Fixed: Branded styles are downloading properly. In addition, some prezis weren’t appearing in the right folders, but we put that bug in its place.

Improved: We’ve reduced the amount of memory that’s used, so now you have extra power to RAMp things up. Also, file operations and making a copy are now as robust as the finest Napa red.
