Would be great to see TypeScript and Flow added as supported syntax languages!3 votes
We’ve added TypeScript to the list of syntax highlighting languages.
Flow isn’t supported by the software we use for syntax highlighting (highlight.js) so unfortunately we’re not able to add that.
Thanks for the feedback!
Is there any possibility to mark or copy more than one element at one time from one slide to another in the same deck? Normally you do this with STRG/ CTRL (holding and clicking) but this doesnt work - or just for me? Hope it works and I just don't knot the proper shortcut. Otherwise I hope this post is new and is not existing already.3 votes
Hey! This is already supported, the shortcut is SHIFT + click. We also support CTRL/CMD + A to select all.
One more option is to click and drag on the empty canvas, this way you can select all elements within an area.
The new video functionality is great! In order to use non-autostart videos in the speaker view mode, it would be good if starting the video in speaker view would also trigger a start in the live view. If cumbersome to arrange with controls, it is enough to have an option "play on click".3 votes
This has been added! Playing, pausing or seeking a non-autoplaying video will now sync to all live viewers.
I'm currently drafting them in a separate app and copying/pasting due to the limited window size.
It would be wonderful to have more space along with toggle and export features as suggested by others.1 vote
You’re right that the note input window was way too small. We’ve increased the size to more than double what it was previously.
The plan is to make it possible to toggle the notes window on and keep it visible as you step between slides too, which I think will make for a much better workflow.
Thanks for the feedback.
When fragments overlap, it becomes incredibly frustrating to order and control their appearance since their controller can reside within another fragment's bounding box, making it select that controller automatically.14 votes
We just released a major redesign of the fragment mode to address a few different issues:
1. There’s a new sidebar where you can see all elements on the slide listed out. This lets you reach overlapping elements and enables you to create nested fragments (useful for nested bullet lists).
2. As soon as there are two or more fragments, a new interface will appear that allows you to preview fragments without leaving the current view.
3. There’s a new button for resetting all fragments.
Let us know if you run into any issues or have any comments.
The word "fork" is very technical, so it appears odd to non-technical users, which is what it seems slides.com is for as opposed to reveal.js. In some places you already use copy in place of fork. It would be great to use copy everywhere. In particular on the presentation screen where it says "forked from ____" it would be great to either have the option of hiding this information of not using the word fork.4 votes
I agree “fork” is a very technical term and, as you pointer out, we started referring to it as “copy” in a few places. I just went ahead and replaced the rest of the places where we said fork. Take a look and let me know if you notice any errors.
It would be nice to see presentation titles on the main page. They're shown on the profile page but not the home page. They could be shown in a similar fashion as the author is now. When you have a lot of presentations that looks similar (most of ours are based on a few templates) this would make it easier to quickly find what you're looking for.7 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We’ve updated this so that the title is included below deck thumbnails.
When an iframe is added to the background(advanced feature) it displays perfectly. However it appears that the <div class="slides"> is blocking all the input to the iframe. Im wondering if this is the intended functionality or if it would be possible to still interact with the iframe background.3 votes
We just revised how this works. From now on, you will be able to interact with a background iframe as long as the slide itself is completely empty. If there is slide content in the foreground, that will take precedence and prevent you from clicking through to the iframe background.
Hope that makes sense and thanks for the feedback!
Currently all decks are thrown into one big bag. It would be nice if we coult categorize them, tag them - and had an opportunity to filter somehow (not only by name)6 votes
We’ve added the ability to organize decks using tags. Learn all about it in the docs: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/1838059-organizing-decks-tags
Save latest selected code theme like you already save code language.
It will save users time and make UI more consistent.1 vote
Good feedback, thanks. I’ve updated the theme selector to pick its defaults based on existing code blocks, just like language selector works.
Make it possible to set the background-position of a background image. In particular I need to be able to specify the equivalent of data-background-position='bottom right'1 vote
Great idea. I needed a break from what I was doing so I went ahead and added this. Reload the editor and you should see this new option next to where you pick background size.
You really need to give users the ability to choose a presentation size. The reason this is is that you need to give user the ultimate freedom with their designs and right now you box them into your own grid which constrains my ability to design.7 votes
A new setting has been added for this. You can now select from multiple different sizes or specify a custom size in the presentation settings.
Multiple selections are already really powerful—moving things in groups is essential to an editing experience.
Something I'm missing is being able to select objects of similar types and change their properties in bulk.
Instead of scaling each Text object separately, I want to change the scale of an entire selection... or their colors, or their alignment. You get the idea.5 votes
We’ve made it possible to select and configure multiple content blocks at once. This works for all properties that are mutually available for the selected blocks.
Allow live editing slides while presenting.5 votes
Ongoing presentations are now kept in sync in real-time when changes are made in the editor. Note that this only works when presenting using the present view.
because "less" is used with non-countable nouns whereas "fewer" is used with countable nouns. Since "Options" is countable, it should be "Fewer options".1 vote
This has been updated. Thanks!
When a deck is shared with speaker notes visible they sometimes overlap with slide content. The viewer should be able to toggle the notes on/off to avoid this.6 votes
We changed the speaker notes layout so that notes are no longer placed on top of presentation content. Instead notes are confined to a sidebar.
I often use shapes like circles and squares to create a basic diagram, and it would be useful to add an outline, so that I can have a white or transparent box with a thin dark border.1 vote
Hey! This is actually possible already. The option to add a border is available to all “basic” shapes like rectangles and circles. Look for the “Border” option further down in the left toolbar.
I think it would be very useful to be able to upsize a deck embedded into a personal site, blog or news article.12 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We have turned on upsizing on the /embed page.
Add default code language to deck settings so that language will be the default selected when a code block is added to a slide1 vote
Great feedback, this is a pain point I’ve been meaning to address.
From now on we remember the last language you selected and use that as a default for any new code block you insert. When you reload the editor, we default to the language used in the first code block we find in the deck.
Note that you’ll need to reload the editor to see this change.
I love that we can now draw a line, but it's helpful to make them dashed or dotted.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback. We have added support for dotted and dashed lines now: https://twitter.com/slides/status/726062777282998273
