  1. Link to knowledgebase from editor

    Add a giant question mark on the editor window that links to the knowledge base: why do I need to go the slides.com for this?

    Thanks for the feedback! A link to the knowledge base and help forum has been added to the bottom of the sidebar.

    There was already a support link there but it’s only been visible to Pro users up until now. If this ends up increasing our support ticket queue too much we may have to revise. We’re a small team and have to prioritize speedy support for our paying customers.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Math Equations

    It took about ten minutes to fork reveal.js to add equation support via MathJax ( http://mathjax.org ). You only drop the MathJax javascript into the header and it automatically renders anything like $y=x^2$ as an equation in any number of different formats. No live demo, but see: https://github.com/rreusser/reveal.js

    Makes a lot of sense to me particularly since it's so simple, but there are a number of choices that would need to be smoothed out like which equation syntax to use, which display format to use, and how an editor like rvl.io would balance WYSIWYG with equations that need rendering.


    Edit:…

  13. Link to another slide

    Provide ability to link to another slide instead of just a website. I'd love to use this format for a portfolio but don't want to make others have to scroll through to find what they want.

  15. Custom HTML and custom Fonts

    I'd love the ability to add custom code, like for embedding an iFrame.
    Also, be able to use custom fonts, usually via services like Typekit, Google Fonts etc.

  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. 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).

  20. 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!
