1. ## Include fragments in pdf export

Right now when you create a presentation with fragments, the exported PDF only shows the last version of any given slide. That is, the version with the "last" fragment in place. This means that the exported PDF is useless as a presentation medium if you include any fragments in your talk.

This poses a major problem because many conferences that I go to (and perhaps this is common for others too) require all presentations to be uploaded to a common computer ahead of time, and limit to PDF or MS PPT format (to avoid compatibility issues, etc). So it leaves…

This has been added! Fragments are now included as separate pages when exporting to PDF.

We made this the default behavior, but there’s an option available in case you want to disable it and export all fragments in their final state.

• ## Ability to keep speaker notes open in the editing view

I want to flick through my presentation reviewing my notes and editing them without having to go to 'present' mode.

When you open the speaker notes input there’s a new “Dock notes” option. If you press this notes will be fixed to the bottom of the screen. This choice is saved so that notes remain docked no matter which presentation you’re editing.

Let us know if you run into any issues.

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.

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.

• ## Animation effects for elements

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

• ## 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!

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 :/
