  1. Allow reset of timer on speaker view

    Being able to reset the timer on the speaker's view would be nice. It would allow one to get prepared but then still have a valid timer.
    Thanks!

        • Add JSX syntax highlighting

          I'm making a presentation on React and I'm using JSX syntax for code samples. The Javascript highlighter doesn't do a good job highlighting jsx.

            • Drag and drop to rearrange slides

              The arrange mode gives an overview of the slides but the system for moving them was non-obvious to me and very cumbersome: moving a slide across the deck is requires as many clicks as there are slides!

              I would rather drag-and-drop the slides, perhaps you could have a drag icon/handle.

                We just rolled out the new arrange mode! The new version is entirely drag-and-drop based. Plus, we’ve made it possible to select and drag or delete multiple slides at once so that you can work faster.

                Please let us know if you run into any issues and we’ll address them as soon as possible. Thanks!

              • Button to quick set opacity to 25%, 50% or 75%

                The Slides for Opacity is terrible UX. I have slides with lots shaped, which I want to enable and disable often, and it kills me, that I have to hit the 50% exactly every time ..

                Alternatively please implement a text-input for this. Sometimes I edit the opacity directly in developer-mode, but it is not really better :/

                  This has been changed. Opacity was the only field that was still using our slider input so made sense to converge on the numeric stepper that we use for everything else.

                • select highlight.js theme for code highlighting

                  It would be nice to support changing higlight.js theme.
                  The default (zenburn?) code highlight theme is unreadable when presenting on projector.
                  At least some black on white would be very useful.

                  • Unlimited Speaker Notes

                    I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
                    I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.

                      We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!

                      Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.

                        The presentation inside of the embedded iframe is already responsive. However you the embedding site will need to use CSS to resize the iframe element based on viewport size and layout.

                        In some cases it might be enough to change the “width” attribute in the embed code to 100%.

                            Hey. It’s already possible to copy and paste images directly from your clipboard. Here’s an example where I right click to copy and press CMD+V to paste in the Slides editor: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/social/slides-copy-paste-image.gif

                            Note that this only works if you haven’t already copied a block of content inside of the Slides editor. If you’ve already copied a block you can reload the editor. Those two conflict because we have our own copy-paste logic in the editor and can not tap into the operating system’s own logic.

                            At conferences, most stages now have a 16:9 aspect ratio. It would be really great if slides will support authoring decks in that format (+ export).

                                We allow you to set background images from URL now. Look for the small link icon in the header of the window that appears when you’re prompted to select a background image.

                                I've got text that I want to show it changes over time by layering each version of the text on top of each other and use fragment to transition between them. It would be nice to select from all the available fragment styles reveal.js has (http://lab.hakim.se/reveal-js/#/7/1) but I'm most in need of the `current-visible` style.

                                • add support for Wistia embedded videos (specifically AutoPlay feature)

                                  You offer AutoPlay for YouTube and Vimeo only, while Wistia, being a well known runner up, doesn't offer one.

                                  Sure, you could use parameter ?autoPlay=true, but Slides.com does not play nicely with that and starts playing all iframes as soon as presentation loads, instead of when entering slide.

                                  That bug is solved by using the provided AutoPlay feature, which is currently not offered for Wistia.

                                      It would be useful to be able to command-click to select more than one object at a time. I have been trying to make some cool shapes, but sadly I have to remake them every time I create a new slide piece by piece!

                                      • Ability to add directed lines and arrows

                                        I would love the ability to add simple lines with arrowheads to point from one element to another on my slides.

                                        I am requesting this here because there really is no simple workaround. Users are forced to paste an image of a line with a 38° tilt and an arrowhead.

                                        Of course, no line tool would be complete without dashed and dotted styles. Thank you for considering this suggestion.

                                          Add a giant question mark on the editor window that links to the knowledge base: why do I need to go the slides.com for this?

                                            Thanks for the feedback! A link to the knowledge base and help forum has been added to the bottom of the sidebar.

                                            There was already a support link there but it’s only been visible to Pro users up until now. If this ends up increasing our support ticket queue too much we may have to revise. We’re a small team and have to prioritize speedy support for our paying customers.
