1. ## Add \mathcal support in Math mode

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.

• ## Transitions for Fragments

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.

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.

• ## The support of gifv, webm or video background

The ability instead of just having images for backgrounds, allowing the user to use various formats for full screen video

• ## 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.

We try to support all SVG. If something isn’t working please let us know by sending a message through the Contact Support link on help.slides.com

• ## 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%.

• ## Include speaker notes in PDF export

Possibility to export speaker notes (within the pdf export of the slides)

• ## easier to put in pictures

I want to be able to just copy and paste pictures in my presentation instead of screen shoting something and then having to download it from my drive.

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.

• ## Support 16:9 slide aspect ratio

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).

This has been added!xx You can now select from multiple different aspect ratios in the presentation settings. It’s even possible to define your own custom resolution.

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.

• ## Make all fragment styles reveal.js offers available in slides.com

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.
