  1. 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.

      Thanks for the feedback!

        The ZIP export issues from earlier this week should be fixed now. Please let us know if you still experience any issues.

      • Fragment on outlines (nested lists)

        Add the possibility to add fragments to the lines of an outline, ie a nested ordered or un ordered list. This already work at the first level of a list but doesn't work if you have a lists inside a lists inside a list...

        - first
        - first on first
        - second on first
        - second

          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!

        • 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".

            Thanks for the feedback! We’ve made sub/super slightly smaller now. We use the same relative size as Chrome (“font-size: smaller;”).

          • Copy to clipboard from code snippets

            I show code snippets a lot, and it would be convenient for the audience to be able to have a copy-to-clipboard option. Yes, they can drag and select, but for larger code samples, that's awkward.

              If you hover over a code block anywhere outside of the editor, a blue Copy button will appear in the top right corner.

            • 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.

                • 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…

                  • New drag and drop slide arrangement broke my edit workflow

                    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.

                      Thanks for the feedback! We’ve revised the keyboard navigation so you should be able to use the arrow keys followed by Enter to jump between slides again.

                      I use a lot of images and iframes, so this is essential. It ought to be the default (and maybe it is).

                        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.

                      • Add Twig to the list of languages for syntax highlighting

                        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.

                          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.

                            I often want to open up multiple decks for review/editing. I'd like to be able to "ctrl-click" the Edit icon to open in a new tab... but since they are buttons and not links, this doesn't work. Can you change them to a link styled as a button to support this? Thanks!

                                  Flow isn’t supported by the software we use for syntax highlighting (highlight.js) so unfortunately we’re not able to add that.

                                  It would be wonderful to have more space along with toggle and export features as suggested by others.

                                    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.

                                    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.

                                      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".

                                      • Rename fork to copy or duplicate

                                        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.

                                          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.

                                        • Show titles on the presentation previews

                                          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.
