  1. Copy to clipboard from code snippets

    I show code snippets a lot, and it would be convenient for the audience to be able to have a copy-to-clipboard option. Yes, they can drag and select, but for larger code samples, that's awkward.

    This has been added 🚀

    If you hover over a code block anywhere outside of the editor, a blue Copy button will appear in the top right corner.

  2. 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.

  3. Hide some slides in presentation mode

    As a speaker I want to be able to hide some slides from being shown in live mode (during presentation).

    Hey! We have added support for hiding individual slides now. The quickest way to hide the current slide is to press CMD+H (CTRL+H on Windows). Alternatively, you can open the arrange mode (ESC) and click the eye symbol the slides you want to hide.

    Deactivated slides are only visible inside of the editor. They are removed from all other presentation views, including live present page.

    Please let us know if you notice any errors!

  4. 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".

  5. 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.

  6. add the ability to include alternative text descriptions for images added to slides

    One of the options in the add images page should be a text field for adding alt text. This option would map to the alt attribute of the image being added. If left blank, the alt attribute for that image would be empty. Adding this option and subsequent attribute would make the presentation more accessible, and allow the deck to meet spec for HTML.

    We now support adding alt text for images! Look for the “T” symbol when an image block is selected. (This was actually added in October 2018 but we missed closing the suggestion, sorry!)

  7. Line Numbers and Line Highlighting in CodeBox

    I love this webservice.
    It will be even more awesome if you consider adding following features in the codebox

    - show line numbers
    - highlight specific lines

    We’ve added support for image cropping! Select an image and look for the crop symbol in the sidebar to try it out. Here’s a quick screen recording showing it in action: https://static.slid.es/support/crop-image.mp4

    We added a couple of new image options at the same time, including the ability to disable the enforced aspect ratio and resize an image freely.

    Please let us know if you run into any errors and we’ll make sure to fix them.

  10. Group Objects

    Grouping multiple objects would make it easier to manage complex slides. Also adding the option of applying settings on multiple objects like font size / color/ class

    We now support grouping! The quickest way to create a group is to select multiple blocks and press CMD+G/CTRL+G. Alternatively, you can right-click and select “Group” from the context menu. Groups can be nested within one another too.

    More info and examples in the announcement deck at https://slides.com/news/groups/

  14. Inline math equations.

    You would be able to specify inline math using $ symbol, (just like in IPython notebook markdown). I'm really tired of putting spaces in my paragraphs to make room for symbols.

  18. Change profile photo without gravatar

    A common strategy for signing up for services online is to add an identifier in the email.

    e.g: john+Identifier@email.com

    For accounts registered in this way gravatar can not find the photo/email. Having a fallback to gravatar in order to upload the photo would be great.

    We have added the ability to upload profile pictures.

    Gravatar—our previous third party solution for profile pictures—is now only used as a fallback if you haven’t uploaded a picture.

  19. Deactivate single slides

    Hi there.
    Working on a presentation it would be great to set single slide visible / unvisible.

    For e.g. i show the presentation with slide for real people i don'Ät need to show a slide about myself with picture etc..

    When publishing later the presentation for all users which see the presentation i could be able to activate the slide with my portfolio / vita / picture.

    So i can stay in the same presentation and do not need to make a duplicate of the presentation with some more or less slides in it.

    For e.g. adding a button on…

  20. Add Drop Shadow as an option for Text

    It's widely supported in CSS so can be done as a custom CSS trick but it's really useful when working with text over a background image and would be nice to have in the visual editor?

    We’ve now added support for drop-shadow and blur effects. These work for all types of content blocks, including text.
