  1. 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

                  • Have a Way to view How much Space you've used out of your 250 mb (or 2gb on pro plan)

                    For some reason I can't seem to locate how much of my storage I've used up on my account.

                    If this is not a feature I feel it should be added.

                    Cheers.

                    • 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 :-)

                      • 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,

                                First, thanks for your tool : it's elegant, easy to use and clear...
                                But I have a problem with "slide".

                                Basically, when I'm trying to change her color, it doesn't work. But, if I try to change the background-color to the SAME background-color, then i make a choice, the colors change. The true problem is the color changed only for a moment ; if i'm going on another slide then i come back on the first, the backgrund-color comes back to his first state.

                                Hard for me ; the next time i'll see the feedbacker of a software. If…

                                      This has been fixed. Going forward, the editor will automatically insert an empty line after code and blockquote elements.

                                    • Allow using images as slide backgrounds

                                      First, just wanna say thanks for creating the service! This is a slide authoring framework full of potentials. Just check out what I was able to do with some additional CSS knowledge:

                                      http://slid.es/gsklee/functional-programming-in-5-minutes

                                      But that's also the issue - you need some CSS knowledge and a lot of works to get some really rich effect. It would be great if the service can one day provide built-in support for all the advanced techniques used in the example slide, though I'd like to highlight one feature, which is "using images as slide backgrounds", 'cause it's really a great addition to have…

                                        We have added the ability to set background images. It’s an icon right underneath the icon for setting a background color. You can also change the transition between backgrounds in the Style panel.

                                        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.

                                        • iframe bug

                                          Is you add an iframe in HTML editing mode:
                                          <iframe src="i.html" width="400" height="400" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe>

                                          upon saving, slid.es scrambles it to be:
                                          <iframe src="i.html" width="400" height="400" scrolling="no" frameborder="0">&amp;amp;nbsp;</iframe>

                                          Which seems to break the viewer as well.
