SlideRocket Blog

We’ve Posted a New Version

By Nat Robinson on September 19, 2007

(Click here if you don’t see the embedded presentation in your RSS reader)

SlideRocket beta version 29 is now posted and includes the following additions/fixes:

  1. Added: New Build Animations – Wipe, Sparkle, Scale, Pop, Blur
  2. Setting a slide’s Background Fill to “Image” now displays the image instead of turning the background gray.
  3. Builds and effects assigned to placeholders are now saved (if you were losing effects and builds that you assigned to elements on your slides, this is why and it’s fixed now).
  4. Transitions applied to the first slide of a presentation no longer cause a brief flash when viewing the presentation.
  5. Presentations with videos on the first slide no longer appear tiny in the player (if you do see this for any reason, the workaround is to right-click the tiny slide in the player and choose “Original Size”).
  6. Transitions now work on slides with videos.
  7. Added viewing statistics to “Share” button in the Library so you can now see how long each slide in your presentation has been viewed.
  8. Added ability to grab embed code from player to facilitate sharing.
  9. SlideRocket now checks for content updates every 60 seconds (if multiple people are working on the same presentation).
  10. The nav bar now appears/disappears when the cursor is moved to the bottom of the screen in fullscreen mode (it’s always on the screen if you’re not in fullscreen mode).
  11. The cursor now changes to a pointing finger when moved over an element with a hyperlink applied.
  12. Resizable windows are no longer invertible.
  13. Share and Fullscreen buttons are now enabled in the player before starting presentation.
  14. Fixed bug that sometimes displayed error when creating thumbnail for a slide with video on it.
  15. BarFlash and Decoder build animations are now restricted to Animate by Character only.
  16. Fixed issue where player wasn’t scaling to fit to window the first time a presentation was previewed.
  17. Presentation files are now pre-cached when previewing playback in the editor (they were previously only pre-cached in the player)
  18. Image fills are now pre-loaded before slide is displayed.

There is still an issue where elements at the slide level can be temporarily layered under layout items but these changes will not be saved.

Thank you to everyone who has been submitting bug reports to us, those are helping tremendously! As a reminder, you can find the user manual here.

    Thanks for your publish. My partner and i have usually seen that the majority of people are eager to lose weight since they wish to show up slim as well as attractive. Even so, they do not continually realize that there are other benefits to losing weight also. Doctors state that fat people have problems with a variety of diseases that can be instantly attributed to their own excess weight. The good news is that people who definitely are overweight along with suffering from numerous diseases can reduce the severity of their own illnesses by way of losing weight. It is possible to see a progressive but marked improvement in health if even a minor amount of weight loss is reached.

    However, after those SEO jobs are done, website owner no need to worry much and just have to lay back as he tracks his traffic grow. Those are really beneficial platforms for getting some qualitative backlinks than those of who only allow the links in the author’s bio.Searchers often just look at the first ten sites displayed by Google so if you aren’t there then that is a cause for worry.
