I am trying to use the slides plugin, but whenever I click the “start presenting” option in the context menu on a note, the note just goes blank and nothing happens.
I did enable the slides plugin and I did restart Obsidian.
I tried this with my own notes, but also with the “Slide Demo” note from the Obsidian help.
Anything that I might be missing?
Did you separate your slides with
I have the same problem and I have separated the slides with ‘—’ and the note goes blank and nothing happens.
— is not the same as
---. The three separate characters are hyphens, not emdashes or endashes. Some OSes automatically replace
—, so you have to undo as soon as that expansion happens or change OS settings to prevent that from happening.
That was just the forum auto-formatting. SiobhanDW did type
@Nils and @SiobhanDW what version of Obsidian are you using? Are you up to date?
Obisidian tells me that it is up to date.
@ryanjamurphy I used the demo slides, so in that case I did not enter characters myself.
Ah, shoot, sorry. There were some troubles with Presentation in 0.8.2 if I recall correctly. A new version will be released to the public soon with presentation fixes (and handling of e.g., embeds and transclusions).
Phew, so I am not too dumb
Hah none of us are too dumb!
Is this working for you with today’s update?
Should work in 0.8.4 now, just go to Settings - About and relaunch. Tested with the help vault slides demo.
How can I customize the slides?
I tried to find a good home for my request.
Many thanks. I installed the update and it is working perfectly
You can use markdown to make some customizations, e.g., creating a heading on your slide with
# some heading, which would look like:
I’m not sure about the extent of other customizations without modifying CSS. What else would you like to do?
I want the heading to be at the top of slide, so that there is a clear separation between topic (heading) and content.
Sure, did you try the above? Feel free to post a screenshot of the result.
I’d like to know how can I move the slides view to a exernal window or open a 2nd instance of my knowledgebase.
It would be great if I could run a presentation and quickly add comments and/or even edit the live view.
Any kind sould knows how I could achieve this?
