  1. Add correct keyboard shortcut tooltips for MacOS

    Currently the tooltips describing keyboard shortcuts are describing Windows keys (SHIFT + ALT + A) but on MacOS it should be (SHIFT + OPTION + A).

    Thanks for letting us know! This was one me, my Mac keyboard actually has both “alt” and “option” written on the key, but that seems to be rare.

    I’ve updated the tooltips to use the same shortcut formatting as the rest of the editor now so there’ll be a symbol instead of ALT written out.

  2. Ability to select slides out of order during streawming

    I am not seeing a mechanism to permit the ability to jump between slides in the deck during streaming. Suppose that I have multiple backup slides to address potential questions at the end of the deck. How do I jump back and forth as necessary within the viewer. Also, it is SUPER annoying that one has to scroll horizontally to reorder slides in the deck. Why isn't there a table format for this?

    Thanks for the suggestion. It’s already possible to jump ahead to a slide in a live streamed deck but it wasn’t documented. I’ve more info and instructions for how to do this under “Jumping to a slide” in the following help article: https://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/333924-present-view-live-streaming

    Our presentation format supports adding slides in two directions. Your main slides are added horizontally, but you can also add optional vertical slides underneath each slide. The slide arrange mode was built the way it was to support both horizontal and vertical slides. It’s not a very efficient use of space when there’s only slides in one direction and we’ll make sure to consider revising it.

  3. Dart support

    Great presentation tool! I noticed that you're missing Dart as a language for code. Any chance you can add that soon?

  4. Fix slide jumps upon undoing

    Sometimes when editing text and then undoing the change, slides jumps back to a previously edited slide, which is confusing and does not let one see the effect of the undo. To reproduce: create a new deck and change the "Title text" placeholde to "First slide". Then add a second title slide and change the "Title text" to "Second Slide". Click outside the text box (to deselect it), and finally "undo". You are back to "First slide". This is confusing.

    This also happens for other types of edits as well, not only text, but it is most striking when editing…

    Thanks for the feedback! This issue has been selected. We made another improvement to the undo history too, which should ensure that you get to actually see the change you’re undoing before switching to the previous slide in the undo history.

    Let me know if you notice any errors.

  5. It would be great to implement shift+move to move on-axis

    The smart snap feature is great, but on some occasion where many snaps are in the way, it would be great to have the option to shift+move on axis.

    Great idea. This has been implemented. Holding shift will only move the block along the dominant axis.

    Let me know if you have an feedback about how it works.

  6. 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.

  7. Implement magic move

    The ability to seamlessly animate objects from one slide to the next is one of the greatest features in Keynote.

    I haven’t had a chance to look into reveal.js yet but I assume the data structure contains slide objects that contain the various elements on a slide. This could be implemented by giving ids to elements and, if the transition type is set to, for example “auto animate”, key properties of elements with the same id can be tweened (e.g., x position, y position, width, height, opacity, rotation).

  8. 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!

  9. Allow subdomain in the link option

    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.

  10. 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?

  11. Move/resize should be undo-able

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

    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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  17. 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).

  18. Make Buttons and Text optional in Presentation mode - e.g. enabled full screen button, disabled share button and by author line

    Status quo: There are 3 styles to choose when embedding the iframe.
    1. Dark style with by author line, share and full screen button
    2. All the same but in Light
    3. Hidden. All Elements are hidden

    Why is it useful to make the elements (by author line, share and full screen button) optional?
    E.g. our use case is to embed the slides on our page as teaching material.
    Of course it's really useful for the students to make the slides bigger --> full screen, but as there is already our logo on our web page we don't want the…

    Hey! We’ve added two new embed options that let you hide the byline and share button. Try generating your embed code again with both of those options turned on and you should only see the fullscreen button in the footer.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  20. 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.
