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.1 vote
This should be fixed now. Can you reload the editor and give it another try? Thanks.
It would be nice if I could set padding for code blocks1 vote
This has been added! If you’ve got the editor open you’ll need to reload to see the change.
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.6 votes
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.
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.
KaTeX has been updated to 0.10.0, so we now support \underbrace as well as all of the functions listed here: https://khan.github.io/KaTeX/docs/supported.html
As part of this we’ve made it easier to update KaTeX versions in the future so we can avoid falling so far behind again 🚀
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!
Hey! We’ve made it possible to organize decks using tags. Each tag has a unique URL so that you can share them.
Learn more in the docs: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/1838059-organizing-decks-tags
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!3 votes
Good feedback, thanks! That button has been swapped out for a link.
I wish I could share slides between different decks. I often reuse slides, so this would be a helpful feature.10 votes
We’ve made it easier to insert copy slides from other decks now. Learn more here: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/583992-how-do-i-copy-slides-between-decks
Would be great to see TypeScript and Flow added as supported syntax languages!3 votes
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!
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.3 votes
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.
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.1 vote
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.
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.14 votes
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.
_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.97 votes
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
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.4 votes
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.
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.7 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We’ve updated this so that the title is included below deck thumbnails.
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.3 votes
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!
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)6 votes

Save latest selected code theme like you already save code language.
It will save users time and make UI more consistent.1 vote
Good feedback, thanks. I’ve updated the theme selector to pick its defaults based on existing code blocks, just like language selector works.
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'1 vote
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.
You really need to give users the ability to choose a presentation size. The reason this is is that you need to give user the ultimate freedom with their designs and right now you box them into your own grid which constrains my ability to design.7 votes
A new setting has been added for this. You can now select from multiple different sizes or specify a custom size in the presentation settings.
Can an option be added so that mobile users can either view the presentation fullscreen or have the ability to zoom in on the currently displayed slide?12 votes
Presentations can now be zoomed via the standard pinch-to-zoom gesture on mobile!
Mobile Safari does not support the Fullscreen API so that’s not an option for the time being.
- Don't see your idea?
