    We’ve made it possible to recover recently deleted decks! From now on, any deck you delete will be available for recovery through a tab at the top of the profile page.

    Decks that are in the trash bin will be permanently deleted after 60 days.

  2. Password protected slideshows

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

  3. Slide collections/folders for organizing and easier private sharing

    It is hard to organize a lot of slides, and share many private slides. It would be great to be able to make a collection or folder of slides (per class, for example) and share that collection with one shareable link, rather than each individual slide.

    Being able to sort would also be good (even if it's alphabetical).

  5. Bug - Hybrid touchscreen with mouse support - Need to disable Touch

    I finally figured out why I couldn't navigate between slides in edit mode... Because I found the same problem in "Present" mode.

    Your implementation for Touch is either/or, never <and>.

    When a touchscreen is detected, Touch is enabled and <disables> mouse clicks.

    Recommend:
    Although existing media detection can remain the same (I suspect is part of one of the Frameworks you are using so may be difficult to customize anyway), there should be a way to disable Touch specifically (ie with a checkbox that sets the touch attribute to false).

    For now, anyone who follows in my footsteps where you…

    We used to listen to both click and touch events but a bug fix for Android we rolled out a few days ago broke that. We’ve gone ahead and updated the implementation so that we still listen for both touch and click events for all systems except Android.

  6. Add categories to slides or a way to tag them

    This will make searching much more versatile.

    Example categories can be taken from Haiku Deck's pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/422775483739123043/

    If you decide to implement this, you should extend it so that slides can be in multiple categories/have multiple tags.

    A good search/filter makes slides easier to access, especially through Google. I find myself searching for information and I see different slide presentation sites pop up in the results. Not only does it help me understand the topic, it adds hits to your sites and encourages sign-ups (if they see a sweet presentation and want to create something like that)

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

    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.

    It’s now 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.

  9. make it so you can choose the order in which fragments appear

    it's a bit frustrating making all these fragments on a slide, only to find they come up in the wrong order. can you think about it?

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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)}

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
