  1. Disable iframe video in speaker view

    When using Speaker View on a slide with an iframe video set to autoplay, the video plays on both the speaker view and presentation view. This is particularly problematic due to the audio being doubled. I suggest not displaying the video in Speaker View. Instead display player controls. This would be helpful if not using autoplay.

      This has been fixed – autoplay is now ignored in the speaker view. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Feel free to submit a new idea if you also want to suggest the addition of video controls.

          • Allow Team plan accounts to login through Google / Facebook

            Currently, when clicking on the Login from a team profile page, it shows the form without social login (e.g. no Google Apps login). Hence, my login looks like this, every time: http://g.recordit.co/4HWx9c20FM.gif

            It'd be nice to see the same Login page as the one that can be reached from the homepage.

              • Include fragments in pdf export

                Right now when you create a presentation with fragments, the exported PDF only shows the last version of any given slide. That is, the version with the "last" fragment in place. This means that the exported PDF is useless as a presentation medium if you include any fragments in your talk.

                This poses a major problem because many conferences that I go to (and perhaps this is common for others too) require all presentations to be uploaded to a common computer ahead of time, and limit to PDF or MS PPT format (to avoid compatibility issues, etc). So it leaves…

                  This has been added! Fragments are now included as separate pages when exporting to PDF.

                  We made this the default behavior, but there’s an option available in case you want to disable it and export all fragments in their final state.

                    This has been added!

                    When you open the speaker notes input there’s a new “Dock notes” option. If you press this notes will be fixed to the bottom of the screen. This choice is saved so that notes remain docked no matter which presentation you’re editing.

                      Hey! We now let you upload videos from your hard drive and insert them into the presentation. We automatically transcode to a format that can be played anywhere.

                      You can also insert a video by pointing to an external URL. Look for the “Insert from URL” option in the media library.

                      Let us know if you have any feedback!

                        We’ve added support for image cropping! Select an image and look for the crop symbol in the sidebar to try it out. Here’s a quick screen recording showing it in action: https://static.slid.es/support/crop-image.mp4

                        We added a couple of new image options at the same time, including the ability to disable the enforced aspect ratio and resize an image freely.

                        Please let us know if you run into any errors and we’ll make sure to fix them.

                        You can have maybe a small box in the corner of presentation mode to tell you how many people are viewing you presentation live.

                          YAML Should be added to syntax highlighting.

                          Previously it was declined due to highlight.js not having support. This is not the case anymore.

                            Thanks for the heads up. We just updated to highlight.js 9.0.0 which adds YAML. You’ll need to reload the editor for it show up though!

                              We’ve now made it possible to sort and search through decks on the profile page! This option is available at the top of the page for any account that has two or more decks.

                              By default, decks are sorted by the time when they were created.

                                This is supported in ipython markdown and is pretty standard in most TeX implementations. It is of great use for statistical or probability-oriented decks, since we use cursive letters to denote distributions. (N= Gaussian, U=uniform...)

                                  We just released support for font changing functions, like \mathcal.

                                  More specifically we now support: \mathcal \mathbb \mathfrak \mathtt and \mathbf.

                                • Inline math equations.

                                  You would be able to specify inline math using `$` symbol, (just like in IPython notebook markdown). I'm really tired of putting spaces in my paragraphs to make room for symbols.

                                    Would be great to have different transitions for fragments.
                                    As it stands they just appear, but it would be nice to have them slide in or convex etc.

                                      Never hide the present button, it's a too important feature

                                        Agreed – we’ve made this change. Note that you can also reach the present view via the preview which is available as a green button in the top left.

                                        Have you planned to add animation effects to the elements? It's the only thing missing to make your software even more awesome than it is and compete with Keynote. Cheers
