  1. 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!

  2. 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).

  4. 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!

  5. 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
    • second

    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!

  6. Speaker notes react to user agent

    Tried using the speaker notes in VR (High Fidelity), but a problem is that Slides.com seem to react to the user agent of the browser in a way that makes it difficult to use the speakernotes. If the user agent contains "mobile" it seems to default to the mobile, touch screen, setting even if the screen is large.

    If there was a way to override the mobile version by using some kind of string in the url (like "?not-mobile") it would be possible to use the notes even on devices that happens to for some reason send the mobile user…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. \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

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

    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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. _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
