I suggest you ...

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. add different behaviors for fragments

    For example: I want to have one picture appear on screen, and then on the next "fragment," I want to replace that picture with another picture.

    I don't want to go onto another slide, I just want to replace one picture with another. It would be perfectly fine if this picture just went above the old one; all I care about is that the audience sees one, and then sees another.

    I can't figure out a clean way to do this with slid.es.

      The described use case should be more straight forward in the new editor that was just launched into public beta. You’ll need to add two images, turn them both into fragments, and drag them on top of each other.

    • 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…

      • iFrame not displaying content

        I am placing an iframe into on of my slides and calling a URL outside of slid.es

        url: party.wellhey.com/raffle.html

        and all I get is an outline of where the iframe is, none of the content is displayed. I thought it may be my code on the page that is being displayed, so I plugged in Google and still nothing.

          • Allow SVG image uploads

            Totally aware that inline SVG works already but for background images you have to do nasty things like host your own and hack CSS off of the inlined slide background colour:

            .reveal div[style="background-color: rgba(200, 50, 30, 0.6);"] {background-image:url(remoteimage.svg)}

            • Import slides from PDF

              Ability to upload a presentation from PDF format. May just generate an image per slide, since converting the content to the Slides format would result in the loss of styles.

              • Preserve font choice when exporting

                When exporting to Reveal.js, if you've chosen a non-default font in the Slid.es UI, that is not added to the HTML that you are given as part of the export, so it is lost.

                • blank theme

                  Allow selection of a blank theme for color type transition etc where there is no CSS pre-applied.

                  It would also be great if the palette picker down the side just adds a class number to background and foreground divs so that they can be styled with css without attribute selector hacks.

                    This has been completed. Blank theme options are currently only available in the theme editor but will be introduced to the normal Slides editor after some time of testing.

                  • Give each page in a deck its own URL.

                    - To allow linking from any other site to a specific page within a deck
                    - To allow reload of specific page in 'fullscreen' after editing
                    - To align with the restfulness of the interwebs and all that jazz
                    and of course it should be aligned with internal(relative) links

                      This has been a frequent request so we turned on unique URLs on the standard presentation pages a week ago. If you go to a deck, like http://slides.com/news/overpass/, the URL will update with each slide navigation.

                      We may revisit this to use the history API at a later point as that would produce nicer URLs while not filling up the browser history.

                    • Speaker notes

                      Having a simple drop down comment box that rests below the slide might be a cool way to allow users to keep notes for each of their slides. Right now I'm writing my script either in a word document or "off screen" outside the visible scroll in the main container.

                      • 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.

                        • SSL for private slides

                          Many online collaboration platforms already secure content over SSL, and many browsers simply block embeds from non-SSL sources on SSL pages.

                          Embedding decks in the upgraded edition should be over SSL, or whatever protocol the main page is in. This is why the YouTube embed code doesn't give "http://'; in the source attribute, it just gives "//" so the videos can be embedded on SSL pages.

                            The share panel now generates protocol relative embed paths, so embedding a deck under a secure domain will automatically use the SSL route to the deck.

                          • add a foreground attribute that links to a background selector

                            A UI to add selectors to slides (for linking background and foreground slides when writing CSS).

                            Similar to what setting an attribute for data-state="" on a <section> does to the <body> when using reveal.js except this time on the relevant backgrounds element.

                            Allowing more than one selector would be great too

                            • Leader/Audience viewing modes

                              Allow the author of a slide to set the presentation into "audience mode"

                              Where the authors slide position is followed by the anyone else with the link.

                              This would kill elluminate webex and even google hangouts when presenting via voice calls as the quality can't be matched over video compression.

                              This would also be perfect for crowd participation for iframe style content where things like audience voting can be started / turned off

                              This would also be great for launching live events via a slid.es deck

                                    • Add keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-K (Add URL) and "?" (Show keyboard shortcuts)

                                      Hello,

                                      First I really don't regret to went pro, your software is really useful.

                                      A little thing that bothered me is that I had to add many URLs and I wasn't able to use the Ctrl-K (or Command-K on macs) shortcut that works in all google prodcuts (gmail, google docs, ...) and even in Word

                                      Another standard shortcut would be "?" to show... well, the available keyboard shortcuts.

                                      Thanks,

                                      Jean-Michel

                                        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 :-)
