  1. 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.

  2. 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

    Thank You!

    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.

  5. 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/

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Add JSX syntax highlighting

    I'm making a presentation on React and I'm using JSX syntax for code samples. The Javascript highlighter doesn't do a good job highlighting jsx.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

    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 PDF exports.

    Please let us know if you notice any errors.

  12. easier to put in pictures

    I want to be able to just copy and paste pictures in my presentation instead of screen shoting something and then having to download it from my drive.

    Hey. It’s already possible to copy and paste images directly from your clipboard. Here’s an example where I right click to copy and press CMD+V to paste in the Slides editor: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/social/slides-copy-paste-image.gif

    Note that this only works if you haven’t already copied a block of content inside of the Slides editor. If you’ve already copied a block you can reload the editor. Those two conflict because we have our own copy-paste logic in the editor and can not tap into the operating system’s own logic.

  13. Copy individual slide between decks

    Making slides is usually a matter of copy-and-paste from an old deck into a new deck (at least in Powerpoint). Copying is either a selection of elements from a slide, or one or more complete slides.

    However I found it impossible to do copy-and-paste between different decks at slides.com. It is possible to clone an existing one - but what if it is too late or I want to copy from multiple sources?

  14. Page numbers on slides

    Add the option to have page numbers at the bottom of each slide (separate from the progress bar setting).

    People viewing a presentation could then refer to particular slides by number when they ask questions.

  15. Give us an option to not preload a slide

    I have a large presentation file with many iframes to demo content within.

    This causes the load of the presentation to lag whilst it spends ages preloading all of the content.

    Either give us a global switch to not preload or perhaps a control within the 'iframe' option that allows us to determine if the content is preloaded or loaded when the slide comes into view.

    Just confirmed this to be working. Iframes are only loaded for the three nearest slides. This is checked every time you navigate, if a new iframe appears within the 3-slide distance it will start loading.

  16. 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.

  17. Insert Video

    Include movies in a presentation

    We’ve added support for video! You can either upload a video from your file system or point to an external video URL.

    Let us know if you have any feedback.

  18. 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).

  20. Enable Full Speaker View on iOS

    The main reason I want to use Slides is to use my iPad to both see and control a presentation on a remote computer. As things stand, the remote control replaces the full “speaker view” on iOS. This isn’t what I need. As it requires one to turn around to watch the screen content, defeating the purpose of using Slides.

    My classrooms are equipped with a Windows PC plugged into a projector, not allowing for installation of any piece of software. I want to use that computer to project slides, controlled via an iPad, but I also want to see…

    iPad users will now see the full speaker view, rather than the simplified mobile version of the page.

    Let us know if you run into any problems with this.
