# General

1. ## 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.

2. ## 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.

3. ## 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.

4. ## 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).

5. ## Custom autoplay timing for each slide

Should be able to define a custom timing for each slide.

You can now customize the autoplay duration on a per-slide basis. This and a few other slide-specific options are available in the new “Slide Settings” menu. More info and examples here: https://slides.com/news/slide-settings/

6. ## 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.

8. ## 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.

9. ## Change transition effect per slide

Add the posibility to define a transition effect for certain slides which overrides the global one.

We’ve made it possible to change the transition effect for specific slides. This and a few other slide-specific options are available in the new “Slide Settings” menu. More info and examples here: https://slides.com/news/slide-settings/

10. ## 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:…

12. ## 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.

You can link to another slide by changing the link “Target” from “Website” to a specific slide number.

We recommend naming any slides that you want to link to using the Slide Settings UI. That way you can more easily target and link to the correct slide.

13. ## Import slides

Just like we can "download" the content of a slide, it would be nice to be able to "upload" the content of a slide.

14. ## 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.

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

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!

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).

Great idea! We’ve added a new option for this in the Editor Settings. Let us know if you encounter any issues.

18. ## To fix the broken "zip" export

Same behaviour on various browsers and OS.

The ZIP export issues from earlier this week should be fixed now. Please let us know if you still experience any issues.

19. ## 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. ## Fragment on outlines (nested lists)

Add the possibility to add fragments to the lines of an outline, ie a nested ordered or un ordered list. This already work at the first level of a list but doesn't work if you have a lists inside a lists inside a list...

• first

• first on first

• second on first

We just released a major redesign of the fragment mode to address a few different issues:

1. There’s a new sidebar where you can see all elements on the slide listed out. This lets you reach overlapping elements and enables you to create nested fragments (useful for nested bullet lists).

2. As soon as there are two or more fragments, a new interface will appear that allows you to preview fragments without leaving the current view.

3. There’s a new button for resetting all fragments.

Let us know if you run into any issues or have any comments.

Thanks!
