  1. Update LESS version for Custom CSS

    Newer features like Properties as Variables (http://lesscss.org/features/#variables-feature-properties-as-variables-new-) throw a syntax error in the custom CSS editor.

      Thanks for the suggestion. We’ve updated to LESS 3.8.1 now so all newer features should work. Let us know if you run into any issues because of the update.

    • Export IFrame to PDF

      Hey,

      PDF exporting is great BUT...
      You lose all the Iframe content.

      Could it be possible to replace the Iframe content by it's URL when exporting a PDF ?
      And maybe by a screenshot of the iframe content? (a clickable screenshot...)

      So the reader would be able to reach the content, just clicking on it, rather than seeing a weird empty space...

      Thanks,

        Thanks for the feedback! We’ve added a fallback for iframes in PDF exports. If you try to export again you should see a link in place of the missing iframe.

        We’re not able to add screenshots of the page at this time but will consider that for a future improvement.

        Let us know if you notice any errors!

      • Don't darken background when the 'Slide background' menu is opened.

        https://gfycat.com/AnotherIllCirriped

        When I try to change the background colour I can't accurately see it until I close the menu. It darkens the slide and doesn't provide show the accurate colour.

          Thanks for the feedback. We’ve changed how this works so that only part of the screen is darkened while applying a slide background. Hope that helps!

        • Better iframe error messaging

          Improve error messaging when embedding iframes into a deck.

          Right now, if I embed an iframe that causes it to not load via setting a bad X-Frame-Options value it shows the same message if the iframe fails to load because of a mixed content error (e.g. trying to embed an HTTP page inside a frame on an HTTPS page)

          Would be great if I this could be improved. Spent 15 frustrating minutes messing about with X-Frame-Options before I realised it was mixed content and the message was too generic!

            Thanks for reporting this Joe!

            We already had an error message in place for mixed content but it was being replaced by the X-Frame-Options message. We’ve changed it so that the mixed content error takes precedence.

            Let me know if you have any more comments on how that works.

          • Hide sidebar in editor view

            On laptops with small screens the black sidebar takes up too much space. When editing large slides, the editable space is clipped and you can't access the entire slide because there is no way to scroll the editor or hide the sidebar. Please add a toggle to the top level and contextual options in the sidebar to hide them when editing slides.

              Thanks for the suggestion! We decided to address the clipped workspace when editing large slides in a different way instead.

              As of today, the editor will automatically scale slide content down to fit any display size. That means no more clipping or unreachable content on small screens.

              Demo: https://twitter.com/slides/status/1015162515263770625

              We don’t have any plans for adding an option to hide the sidebar at this time but hopefully the above change solves the layout issue for you.

            • Position the grid in front of the slide

              In the editor settings one you can check the "Grid" option which "displays a grid *behind* the slide to help aligning". It would be nice to have an option for positioning the grid *in front of* the slide because when I want to overlap several larger elements then the first one already covers the grid and since that part of the grid is not visible anymore it consequentially doesn't help aligning anymore (apart from snapping).

                • Make Buttons and Text optional in Presentation mode - e.g. enabled full screen button, disabled share button and by author line

                  Status quo: There are 3 styles to choose when embedding the iframe.
                  1. Dark style with by author line, share and full screen button
                  2. All the same but in Light
                  3. Hidden. All Elements are hidden

                  Why is it useful to make the elements (by author line, share and full screen button) optional?
                  E.g. our use case is to embed the slides on our page as teaching material.
                  Of course it's really useful for the students to make the slides bigger --> full screen, but as there is already our logo on our web page we don't want the…

                    Hey! We’ve added two new embed options that let you hide the byline and share button. Try generating your embed code again with both of those options turned on and you should only see the fullscreen button in the footer.

                      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.

                      Thanks!

                    • Speaker notes react to user agent

                      Tried using the speaker notes in VR (High Fidelity), but a problem is that Slides.com seem to react to the user agent of the browser in a way that makes it difficult to use the speakernotes. If the user agent contains "mobile" it seems to default to the mobile, touch screen, setting even if the screen is large.

                      If there was a way to override the mobile version by using some kind of string in the url (like "?not-mobile") it would be possible to use the notes even on devices that happens to for some reason send the mobile user…

                      • Bug: Subscript and superscripts (sub/sup HTML tags) should make text smaller

                        Using HTML editor on developer mode I add some sub and sup HTML tags, for example to add an exponent. The text is moved up/down but with the same font size. Maybe this Wikipedia text is helpful: "the superscript *is about 60% of the original characters*, raised by about 44% above the baseline".

                            The new drag and drop feature for the slide arrangement is awesome, but it broke my editing workflow.

                            I move between slides a lot during editing, so I used to press "esc" -> "arrow keys" -> "enter" to move from one slide to another. With the current version (Feb 2018) "enter" is not recognized anymore when opening the "slides overview" in edit mode.

                            Works perfectly in presentation mode, btw.

                                We use reveal.js’ lazy-loading with the default viewDistance setting (3) for all Slides presentations. I don’t think it makes sense to expose viewDistance as a setting since it’s not something most people need to think about.

                                Twig is a pretty popular template engine for PHP and it misses in the list of selectable languages in the code editor although highlight.js supports it: https://github.com/isagalaev/highlight.js/blob/master/src/languages/twig.js

                                Would be great, having it on the list.

                                • BUG: Objects move when entering text box

                                  Suppose there's an object (e.g., arrow) directly below a text box containing LaTeX math stuff, in such a way that:
                                  when entering the text box to edit the text, the formula expands to the original LaTeX source, taking up more text lines than the formula itself.

                                  The textbox is made larger (expanded downwards), and the object directly below it is pushed down. When leaving the text box, the LaTeX source is replaced by the much shorter formula, the textbox shrinks, but the object below it doesn't return to the original position.

                                  • code padding

                                    It would be nice if I could set padding for code blocks

                                    • Let fragments fade out partially to lead focus of observers

                                      I would like to let fragments on slides readable but losing some opacity when fading in the next fragment. So viewers follow my speed of speech, but may still see the last topic on that slide.

                                        We’ve added two new fragment styles for this. The first option starts with the element visible and then fades it out 50%.

                                        The other starts with the element hidden, shows it when it is the current fragment, and then fades out 50% afterwards.

                                        Hi,

                                        I want to use \underbrace in my slides to add some notes to maths.
                                        Version 0.8.0 of KaTeX added support for \overbrace and \underbrace (see https://github.com/Khan/KaTeX/releases/tag/v0.8.0) so it should be fine if you update KaTeX to the latest one.

                                        Thanks,
                                        pandaman

                                          Hi,

                                          I love using slides and have a lot of decks in it. I use it for very different subjects. It would be really nice if you can put your decks in folders!
