      • 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.

          • Enhanced performance of GIF files

            … Would be great if GIFs only played on page load rather than playing constantly. They often end up half way through when you get to that slide.

              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.

            • Enable Full Speaker View on iOS

              The main reason I want to use Slides is to use my iPad to both *see* and control a presentation on a remote computer. As things stand, the remote control replaces the full “speaker view” on iOS. This isn’t what I need. As it requires one to turn around to watch the screen content, defeating the purpose of using Slides.

              My classrooms are equipped with a Windows PC plugged into a projector, not allowing for installation of any piece of software. I want to use that computer to project slides, controlled via an iPad, but I also want to see…

                iPad users will now see the full speaker view, rather than the simplified mobile version of the page.

                Let us know if you run into any problems with this.

              • arrange slides in "profile-page"

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

                what's the rules for that???

                  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.

                • Allow decks on the profile page to be manually sorted.

                  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.

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

                    YAML's pretty common these days, I was surprised it isn't there.

                      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.

                        • Recognize automatically YouTube URL

                          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 :-)

                          • Unlimited Speaker Notes

                            I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
                            I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.

                              We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!

                              Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.

                            • [bug] unable to select top image surrounded by larger image in "freely position" mode

                              Cause: current selection supersedes z index in "freely position" mode when calculating hover selection. Since it is necessary to pass the mouse over the outer (lower) image to get to the inner (top) image, it is impossible to select the inner image with a relative pointing device.

                              To reproduce:

                              1. Insert a large and small image into a slide.
                              2. Switch to "freely position" mode
                              3. Push small image "to top" button
                              4. Move small image to is is surrounded by larger image.
                              5. Move the mouse cursor outside the larger image, then back in and over the smaller image.

                              • UI/Bug Issue: Resizing elements when freely positioning elements

                                Ex: If I have a large picture on the left side, then try to add text on the right side and I want to resize the text, the resizing tool is to the left of the text box and does not allow me to resize because the interface thinks I want to click on the picture (which I don't).

                                The issue is the location of the resizing tool and how it doesn't stay up if your mouse isn't hovered on the text box. When the text box is small and I try to move my mouse over to the resize…

                                • Improved Syntax Highlighting

                                  It would be great if syntax highlighting could already be seen in the edit mode, or at least in the preview mode, otherwise it is a real surprise when all of the sudden some code is highlighted you did not expect.
                                  It certainly surprised me the first time.
                                  And it would be great, if the language if the syntax highlighting (HTML, Javascript, Python, etc.) could also be somehow set within the interface.

                                    Code snippets are now syntax-highlighted while inside of the editor. You also have explicit control over which language to highlight as. This was added as part of the new editor that we just launched into public beta.

                                    • Add smartphone control via websockets

                                      This way someone can swipe or click to move through the presentation that is showing on another computer. I actually did this a while back using a python web-sockets demo, it only took a couple of hours to hack up.

                                      Notes and a zoomed out overview of the presentation would be helpful.

                                      • allow edit text size & vertical position

                                        great service!
                                        1.allow edit text size (1 to 100) & adjust text's vertical position/auto center it vert.
                                        2.the text formatting tool capitilizes the lowercase IDN (or any type of) characters, after a few text style changes, and doesnt make them Lowercase again when selecting "Paragraph" style.
                                        3. when selected the text with cursor, the text formatting area's "Font" and "Format" fields, should display current selections (eg: Arial, H1), so user knows where he stands.

                                          For more confidentiality it would be useful to have password protected slides.
