  1. Upsizing for embedded decks

    I think it would be very useful to be able to upsize a deck embedded into a personal site, blog or news article.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          Elixir is already supported by highlight.js.

                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.

                • 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.

                  • Autosave.

                    Its been a couple of times I sleep my computer and when I'm back I get a saving error.

                    Also, as a docs and iWork user I must admit I'm getting kind of used to autosave. I think it'd be a good (and huge, I bet, in terms of programming, storage, etc) addition. The "complementary" tools that usually come with autosave would be pretty good too (version control being the biggest).

                    I think it's a great goal though to strive to later in the future.

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

                                GIFs now start playing when their containing slide is shown. This ensures they’ll always start from the beginning.

                                This logic is applied to both on-slide and background images. However restarting GIFs used as background images does not work in Firefox.

                                is it possible to arrange the slides at the profile page?
                                its not alphabetical...
                                nor by date...

                                what's the rules for that???

                                  I will be making a lot of these for class, and the order seems to be random. It would be good to be able to put them in class order.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this isn’t possible since YAML isn’t supported by the syntax highlighting library that we’re using (highlight.js).


                                      UPDATE: YAML is now supported by highlight.js and available in the Slides editor.

                                    • 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.

                                      See: https://github.com/isagalaev/highlight.js/blob/master/src/languages/yaml.js

                                        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!

                                      • Ability to add directed lines and arrows

                                        I would love the ability to add simple lines with arrowheads to point from one element to another on my slides.

                                        I am requesting this here because there really is no simple workaround. Users are forced to paste an image of a line with a 38° tilt and an arrowhead.

                                        Of course, no line tool would be complete without dashed and dotted styles. Thank you for considering this suggestion.

                                          Hello,

                                          I think that when you recognize that your user copy-paste a YouTube url like

                                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXY-aBAlgC8

                                          you should replace it in javascript with the corresponding html code

                                          <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/XXY-aBAlgC8&quot; frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

                                          That is what gmail does.

                                          I think that if you do that, it will be easy for people like me to show to john doe users that we can do much better than that PowerPoint thing :-)
