You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

### There are two ways to get more votes:

• When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
• You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
• To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

1. ## Include default code language in deck settings

Great feedback, this is a pain point I’ve been meaning to address.

From now on we remember the last language you selected and use that as a default for any new code block you insert. When you reload the editor, we default to the language used in the first code block we find in the deck.

Note that you’ll need to reload the editor to see this change.

• ## modify lines to dashed or dotted

I love that we can now draw a line, but it's helpful to make them dashed or dotted.

• ## borders on shapes

I often use shapes like circles and squares to create a basic diagram, and it would be useful to add an outline, so that I can have a white or transparent box with a thin dark border.

Hey! This is actually possible already. The option to add a border is available to all “basic” shapes like rectangles and circles. Look for the “Border” option further down in the left toolbar.

• ## 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.

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.

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!

• ## Let the user know how many people is viewing his/her presentation

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

• ## Add YAML to the list of languages for syntax highlighting (code editor)

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.

• ## Typekit support

Will there be an option to integrate typekit fonts?

• ## 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.

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
