  1. Disable Google Analytics

    Paid accounts should be able to disable all Google Analytics (including slides.com’s) on publicly-shared presentations.

    Personally, I do not want to expose the people who view my presentations to surveillance by Google/Alphabet, etc. and help them build their World Wide Web-wide panopticon (based on my own crawls, Google Analytics alone gives Google eyes on 64.1% of the web).

    As I now use slides.com for my keynotes, I would like to promote your service. Not least because you have a lovely independent business that isn’t a surveillance capitalist. If you could add the feature to disable Google Analytics, I can do…

    We have added a new “Do Not Track” setting which makes this possible. If you turn on the DNT setting, we stop tracking your activity AND the activity of people viewing your content to Google Analytics.

    To enable it, visit the account settings page.

  2. Presentation timer should start only when you move off the first slide

    It is common when presenting to set up your computer to present and then leave it for an extended period of time. With the current presentation view, if setup is half an hour before presentation time, your timer will be at 30 minutes before you’ve even begun your presentation.

    By default, the timer should only start once you’ve moved off the first slide.

    (At least having the option to make the timer behave in this way would make it usable for me.)

    We just rolled out a few major changes to the speaker view timer. Here’s what’s new:
    - The timer is initially paused and starts on first navigation
    - There are controls for manually starting/pausing/resetting the timer
    - You can specify a time limit to see a countdown
    - We added a progress bar that shows your slide progress
    - If you have a countdown the progress bar has a thin line indicating the remaining time, so you can see if you’re falling behind

    Let us know what you think!

  3. Allow subdomain in the link option

    you can not add a subdomain in the link option .

    for example , help.slides.com it is not allowed , i need to refer subdomain . Thank You!

    We’ve always supported subdomains in links, but I believe the error you ran into is that we require a valid protocol to persist a link. For example http://help.slides.com worked but help.slides.com didn’t.

    I just released an update that automatically adds the protocol if it’s left out.

  4. Add table block in define API

    Could you add table block in " define API ". So far when we pass a html table within an html block all tags are removed. Do you have a workaround?

  5. Move/resize should be undo-able

    If you move an object or resize a text box that action should be on the undo stack.

  6. Export IFrame to PDF

    Hey,

    PDF exporting is great BUT...
    You lose all the Iframe content.

    Could it be possible to replace the Iframe content by it's URL when exporting a PDF ?
    And maybe by a screenshot of the iframe content? (a clickable screenshot...)

    So the reader would be able to reach the content, just clicking on it, rather than seeing a weird empty space...

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the feedback! We’ve added a fallback for iframes in PDF exports. If you try to export again you should see a link in place of the missing iframe.

    We’re not able to add screenshots of the page at this time but will consider that for a future improvement.

    Let us know if you notice any errors!

    Give the ability to set times for each slide.

  8. Update LESS version for Custom CSS

    Newer features like Properties as Variables (http://lesscss.org/features/#variables-feature-properties-as-variables-new-) throw a syntax error in the custom CSS editor.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’ve updated to LESS 3.8.1 now so all newer features should work. Let us know if you run into any issues because of the update.

  9. Support reveal's lazy loading feature

    https://github.com/hakimel/reveal.js#lazy-loading

    I use a lot of images and iframes, so this is essential. It ought to be the default (and maybe it is).

    We use reveal.js’ lazy-loading with the default viewDistance setting (3) for all Slides presentations. I don’t think it makes sense to expose viewDistance as a setting since it’s not something most people need to think about.

  10. Sync video in live mode

    The new video functionality is great! In order to use non-autostart videos in the speaker view mode, it would be good if starting the video in speaker view would also trigger a start in the live view. If cumbersome to arrange with controls, it is enough to have an option "play on click".

  11. Turn off slide motion animation

    Turn off the animation between slides. It would be really nice to turn off the slide animation for some presentations.

    This is already possible. If you open the “Style” panel in the left sidebar of the editor, there is a section where you can change the slide transition. One of the slide transition options is ‘none’ which removes all of the sliding transitions.

  12. Animation effects for elements

    Have you planned to add animation effects to the elements? It's the only thing missing to make your software even more awesome than it is and compete with Keynote. Cheers

  13. 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.

  14. Custom autoplay timing for each slide

    Should be able to define a custom timing for each slide.
    Bring us the best of dead Sliderocket!

  17. Don't darken background when the 'Slide background' menu is opened.

    https://gfycat.com/AnotherIllCirriped

    When I try to change the background colour I can't accurately see it until I close the menu. It darkens the slide and doesn't provide show the accurate colour.

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ve changed how this works so that only part of the screen is darkened while applying a slide background. Hope that helps!

  18. Better iframe error messaging

    Improve error messaging when embedding iframes into a deck.

    Right now, if I embed an iframe that causes it to not load via setting a bad X-Frame-Options value it shows the same message if the iframe fails to load because of a mixed content error (e.g. trying to embed an HTTP page inside a frame on an HTTPS page)

    Would be great if I this could be improved. Spent 15 frustrating minutes messing about with X-Frame-Options before I realised it was mixed content and the message was too generic!

    Thanks for reporting this Joe!

    We already had an error message in place for mixed content but it was being replaced by the X-Frame-Options message. We’ve changed it so that the mixed content error takes precedence.

    Let me know if you have any more comments on how that works.

  19. Hide sidebar in editor view

    On laptops with small screens the black sidebar takes up too much space. When editing large slides, the editable space is clipped and you can't access the entire slide because there is no way to scroll the editor or hide the sidebar. Please add a toggle to the top level and contextual options in the sidebar to hide them when editing slides.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We decided to address the clipped workspace when editing large slides in a different way instead.

    As of today, the editor will automatically scale slide content down to fit any display size. That means no more clipping or unreachable content on small screens.

    Demo: https://twitter.com/slides/status/1015162515263770625

    We don’t have any plans for adding an option to hide the sidebar at this time but hopefully the above change solves the layout issue for you.

  20. Position the grid in front of the slide

    In the editor settings one you can check the "Grid" option which "displays a grid *behind* the slide to help aligning". It would be nice to have an option for positioning the grid *in front of* the slide because when I want to overlap several larger elements then the first one already covers the grid and since that part of the grid is not visible anymore it consequentially doesn't help aligning anymore (apart from snapping).
