  1. New drag and drop slide arrangement broke my edit workflow

    The new drag and drop feature for the slide arrangement is awesome, but it broke my editing workflow.

    I move between slides a lot during editing, so I used to press "esc" -> "arrow keys" -> "enter" to move from one slide to another. With the current version (Feb 2018) "enter" is not recognized anymore when opening the "slides overview" in edit mode.

    Works perfectly in presentation mode, btw.

    Thanks for the feedback! We’ve revised the keyboard navigation so you should be able to use the arrow keys followed by Enter to jump between slides again.

  2. Add Twig to the list of languages for syntax highlighting

    Twig is a pretty popular template engine for PHP and it misses in the list of selectable languages in the code editor although highlight.js supports it: https://github.com/isagalaev/highlight.js/blob/master/src/languages/twig.js

    Would be great, having it on the list.

  3. BUG: Objects move when entering text box

    Suppose there's an object (e.g., arrow) directly below a text box containing LaTeX math stuff, in such a way that:
    when entering the text box to edit the text, the formula expands to the original LaTeX source, taking up more text lines than the formula itself.

    The textbox is made larger (expanded downwards), and the object directly below it is pushed down. When leaving the text box, the LaTeX source is replaced by the much shorter formula, the textbox shrinks, but the object below it doesn't return to the original position.

  5. Let fragments fade out partially to lead focus of observers

    I would like to let fragments on slides readable but losing some opacity when fading in the next fragment. So viewers follow my speed of speech, but may still see the last topic on that slide.

    We’ve added two new fragment styles for this. The first option starts with the element visible and then fades it out 50%.

    The other starts with the element hidden, shows it when it is the current fragment, and then fades out 50% afterwards.

  6. \underbrace support

    Hi,

    I want to use \underbrace in my slides to add some notes to maths.
    Version 0.8.0 of KaTeX added support for \overbrace and \underbrace (see https://github.com/Khan/KaTeX/releases/tag/v0.8.0) so it should be fine if you update KaTeX to the latest one.

    Thanks,
    pandaman

  7. Sort decks in folders

    Hi,

    I love using slides and have a lot of decks in it. I use it for very different subjects. It would be really nice if you can put your decks in folders!

  8. Make the "Edit" button a link to support opening decks in new tabs

    I often want to open up multiple decks for review/editing. I'd like to be able to "ctrl-click" the Edit icon to open in a new tab... but since they are buttons and not links, this doesn't work. Can you change them to a link styled as a button to support this? Thanks!

  9. Copy and paste slides from different decks

    I wish I could share slides between different decks. I often reuse slides, so this would be a helpful feature.

  10. Add TypeScript syntax highlighting

    We’ve added TypeScript to the list of syntax highlighting languages.

    Flow isn’t supported by the software we use for syntax highlighting (highlight.js) so unfortunately we’re not able to add that.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  11. Mark/ copy more than one element at one time from one slide to another in the same deck

    Is there any possibility to mark or copy more than one element at one time from one slide to another in the same deck? Normally you do this with STRG/ CTRL (holding and clicking) but this doesnt work - or just for me? Hope it works and I just don't knot the proper shortcut. Otherwise I hope this post is new and is not existing already.

    Hey! This is already supported, the shortcut is SHIFT + click. We also support CTRL/CMD + A to select all.

    One more option is to click and drag on the empty canvas, this way you can select all elements within an area.

  12. expand the speaker note canvas.

    I'm currently drafting them in a separate app and copying/pasting due to the limited window size.

    It would be wonderful to have more space along with toggle and export features as suggested by others.

    You’re right that the note input window was way too small. We’ve increased the size to more than double what it was previously.

    The plan is to make it possible to toggle the notes window on and keep it visible as you step between slides too, which I think will make for a much better workflow.

    Thanks for the feedback.

  13. Revise Fragment system

    When fragments overlap, it becomes incredibly frustrating to order and control their appearance since their controller can reside within another fragment's bounding box, making it select that controller automatically.

    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!

  14. _Easily_ copy individual slides between decks, even when you have a lot of decks and a lot of users. (Templating the deck is not enough)

    We are a consultancy of 80 people. We would have to easily copy (or reuse) individual slides from _a lot_ of decks if Slides.com is to be a viable solution for us.

    We’ve rolled out a refreshed slide template selector! It’s now possible for Team members to browse and insert slides from any of their colleagues internal decks.

    This—combined with the existing ability to insert slides from your own decks—gives you convenient access to all the slides you need to quickly assemble new decks.

    Learn more about the template selector and see screenshots here: https://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/405645-slide-templates

  15. Rename fork to copy or duplicate

    The word "fork" is very technical, so it appears odd to non-technical users, which is what it seems slides.com is for as opposed to reveal.js. In some places you already use copy in place of fork. It would be great to use copy everywhere. In particular on the presentation screen where it says "forked from ____" it would be great to either have the option of hiding this information of not using the word fork.

    I agree “fork” is a very technical term and, as you pointer out, we started referring to it as “copy” in a few places. I just went ahead and replaced the rest of the places where we said fork. Take a look and let me know if you notice any errors.

  16. Show titles on the presentation previews

    It would be nice to see presentation titles on the main page. They're shown on the profile page but not the home page. They could be shown in a similar fashion as the author is now. When you have a lot of presentations that looks similar (most of ours are based on a few templates) this would make it easier to quickly find what you're looking for.

  17. background iframe

    When an iframe is added to the background(advanced feature) it displays perfectly. However it appears that the <div class="slides"> is blocking all the input to the iframe. Im wondering if this is the intended functionality or if it would be possible to still interact with the iframe background.

    We just revised how this works. From now on, you will be able to interact with a background iframe as long as the slide itself is completely empty. If there is slide content in the foreground, that will take precedence and prevent you from clicking through to the iframe background.

    Hope that makes sense and thanks for the feedback!

  18. provide deck categories/tags

    Currently all decks are thrown into one big bag. It would be nice if we coult categorize them, tag them - and had an opportunity to filter somehow (not only by name)

  19. Save latest code theme

    Save latest selected code theme like you already save code language.

    It will save users time and make UI more consistent.

    Good feedback, thanks. I’ve updated the theme selector to pick its defaults based on existing code blocks, just like language selector works.

  20. Make it possible to set background-position

    Make it possible to set the background-position of a background image. In particular I need to be able to specify the equivalent of data-background-position='bottom right'

    Great idea. I needed a break from what I was doing so I went ahead and added this. Reload the editor and you should see this new option next to where you pick background size.
