[CTRL] + [ALT] + Frame -> 4:3


#1

Using [CTRL] + [ALT] + Frame could result in a frame with a border ratio of 4:3, because most projectors use this.

[Shift] + [ALT] + Frame maybe could be 16:10.

This could avoid some pitfalls.


#2

Haha, found the shortcut: [SHIFT] + Frame.

Should be better propagating within the help. I didn’t found it there.

Adrian,

Which ratio does your shortcut render? Thanks.


#4

The aspect ratio between width and high of the monitor/projector. It was typical for televisions, monitors … before the wide screen era (16:10 at monitors and 16:9 at televisions). Video projectors mostly still only support 4:3.

I think for presentations (especially in science) it is better to use this ratio for your “slides”. Avoids anoying effects with neighbored slides.


#5

Ah, [Shift] + Frame makes 4:3.


#6

This has been an issue for me for a while. My laptop is a wide screen, while the projectors in the classrooms use 4:3 and I repeatedly get things wrong when creating “slides.”

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to replicate your trick for creating a 4:3 frame. As a scientist, I hope that you can have pity on a poor, dumb teacher in the arts and tell me your step-by-step. :slight_smile:

Thanks.

Figured it out!!!

Click on “Frame”
Then hold “Shift” while drawing frame on canvas
Result is that Prezi will only draw a 4:3 frame

GREAT!!! I’ll be using this a lot. Thanks.


#8

You got it :slight_smile:

Cool!
