Done! And thanks for the love!

Currently, when clicking on the Login from a team profile page, it shows the form without social login (e.g. no Google Apps login). Hence, my login looks like this, every time: http://g.recordit.co/4HWx9c20FM.gif

It'd be nice to see the same Login page as the one that can be reached from the homepage.

3. Include fragments in pdf export

Right now when you create a presentation with fragments, the exported PDF only shows the last version of any given slide. That is, the version with the "last" fragment in place. This means that the exported PDF is useless as a presentation medium if you include any fragments in your talk.

This poses a major problem because many conferences that I go to (and perhaps this is common for others too) require all presentations to be uploaded to a common computer ahead of time, and limit to PDF or MS PPT format (to avoid compatibility issues, etc). So it leaves…

This has been added! Fragments are now included as separate pages when exporting to PDF.

We made this the default behavior, but there’s an option available in case you want to disable it and export all fragments in their final state.

4. Ability to keep speaker notes open in the editing view

I want to flick through my presentation reviewing my notes and editing them without having to go to 'present' mode.

When you open the speaker notes input there’s a new “Dock notes” option. If you press this notes will be fixed to the bottom of the screen. This choice is saved so that notes remain docked no matter which presentation you’re editing.

Let us know if you run into any issues.

5. offer a simple solution to play videos from the harddrive.

I tried

            <section>
<video data-autoplay src="media/media9a.mp4"></video>

</section>


but its a bit buggy still...

Hey! We now let you upload videos from your hard drive and insert them into the presentation. We automatically transcode to a format that can be played anywhere.

You can also insert a video by pointing to an external URL. Look for the “Insert from URL” option in the media library.

Let us know if you have any feedback!

6. Let the user know how many people is viewing his/her presentation

You can have maybe a small box in the corner of presentation mode to tell you how many people are viewing you presentation live.

7. Add YAML to the list of languages for syntax highlighting (code editor)

YAML Should be added to syntax highlighting.

Previously it was declined due to highlight.js not having support. This is not the case anymore.

Thanks for the heads up. We just updated to highlight.js 9.0.0 which adds YAML. You’ll need to reload the editor for it show up though!

10. Add \mathcal support in Math mode

This is supported in ipython markdown and is pretty standard in most TeX implementations. It is of great use for statistical or probability-oriented decks, since we use cursive letters to denote distributions. (N= Gaussian, U=uniform...)

We just released support for font changing functions, like \mathcal.

More specifically we now support: \mathcal \mathbb \mathfrak \mathtt and \mathbf.

11. Transitions for Fragments

Would be great to have different transitions for fragments.
As it stands they just appear, but it would be nice to have them slide in or convex etc.

Never hide the present button, it's a too important feature

Agreed – we’ve made this change. Note that you can also reach the present view via the preview which is available as a green button in the top left.

We’ve added support for video! Videos can be added in the background or as part of the slide content.

You can insert a video either by uploading it to our servers (100 MB max) or specifying an external URL.

Let us know if you have any feedback.

14. Allow reset of timer on speaker view

Being able to reset the timer on the speaker's view would be nice. It would allow one to get prepared but then still have a valid timer.
Thanks!

We just made it possible to select from multiple different fragment styles. If you use the "Fade out style, content will be visible from the start and then disappear.

16. Drag and drop to rearrange slides

The arrange mode gives an overview of the slides but the system for moving them was non-obvious to me and very cumbersome: moving a slide across the deck is requires as many clicks as there are slides!

I would rather drag-and-drop the slides, perhaps you could have a drag icon/handle.

We just rolled out the new arrange mode! The new version is entirely drag-and-drop based. Plus, we’ve made it possible to select and drag or delete multiple slides at once so that you can work faster.

Please let us know if you run into any issues and we’ll address them as soon as possible. Thanks!

17. Button to quick set opacity to 25%, 50% or 75%

The Slides for Opacity is terrible UX. I have slides with lots shaped, which I want to enable and disable often, and it kills me, that I have to hit the 50% exactly every time ..

Alternatively please implement a text-input for this. Sometimes I edit the opacity directly in developer-mode, but it is not really better :/

This has been changed. Opacity was the only field that was still using our slider input so made sense to converge on the numeric stepper that we use for everything else.

18. select highlight.js theme for code highlighting

It would be nice to support changing higlight.js theme.
The default (zenburn?) code highlight theme is unreadable when presenting on projector.
At least some black on white would be very useful.

19. Unlimited Speaker Notes

I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.

We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!

Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.

The presentation inside of the embedded iframe is already responsive. However you the embedding site will need to use CSS to resize the iframe element based on viewport size and layout.

In some cases it might be enough to change the “width” attribute in the embed code to 100%.
