Did you try grabbing the URL via the Network panel in developer tools? I was able to get the URLs for images I needed by: Opening Developer Tools in Chrome (Cmd+Opt+I) Selecting the "Network" tab (you may need to refresh the presentation) Clicking the little "filter" icon (the third icon from the top left) Clicking "Images" to show only images Clicking "...

I found this online LaTeX editor. It allows you to type LaTeX and download an image of the resulting equation. It even shows in real time what the equation looks like. I'm going to use the online LaTeX equation editor to place an equation in Google Presentations, just like you wanted to. Here's an example: It's a kind of REST interface that generates a ...

Unfortunately at this time you can not do that. However Google is constantly updating this stuff, so it may be possible in the future.

Unfortunately page numbers in Presentations hasn't been implemented yet. We don't currently support master slide functionality, so you'll need to insert numbers and logos manually. Source Its likely that i will be in the future - but no idea when. Someone on another forum suggested a workaround by using the features built into Adobe Acrobat to add ...

There is a Google Slides add-on for this: Slides Toolbox. It allows you to select multiple photos at once from Google Drive and imports them each as a new slide. No idea who the developer is but it works for this task, it has other features I have not tried.

If you have access to MS PowerPoint, one option is to save the Docs presentation as a .ppt, and then use the Save As option from PowerPoint which does have "all slides" option.

A much more simple approach is to use the now built-in feature: Google Keep Notepad. Right click image -> 💡 Save to Keep Notepad You can then download from the keep notepad the way you can download any image displayed in your browser. This not only let's you copy the entire slide, but actual, individual images (at their original resolution).

You can download the file as a .pptx, then change the file extension to .zip, decompress it and find the images in the /media folder of the decompressed file.

Short answer As I understand, the emojis that the OP is talking about are UNICODE emojis. Unfortunately, at this time the Google Slides presentation mode doesn't display them in full color, so instead of using UNICODE emojis, use images. For that, you could take a screenshot and snip out the emojis. Explanation UNICODE emojis are pictorial representation ...

When publishing the presentation, you can see that a parameter delayms is added to the URL, with the time you selected, in milliseconds. I just tried an idea and it also works with non-published presentations! Take the URL from edit mode, replace everything from /edit with /present?delayms=8000 and you get what you wanted.

No need to download any additional software if you have Adobe Acrobat, simply... Save your presentation to pdf: File > Download as > PDF Document (.pdf) Open the PDF in Acrobat and then: File > Export To > Image > (Choose prefered file format) It will automatically start creating each slide as its own image inside the directory you have the PDF saved in.

I've found selecting one object and then repeatedly hitting tab the best way to select an object (particularly when sending one object to the back would also then make it hard to manipulate). Unfortunately it can mean hitting tab several times!

The option is not explicit but you can do it. Go to Insert -> Text box and make a box where you want your footer, with what you want in it (I suggest centering it horizontally). Then Right-click on the box and select Add to Theme -> Master / [...]. Adding to Master will put it on all slides. If you select something else, it will put it on all slides of ...

As a workaround, I inserted the emojis as images by copying them from emojipedia. This is the only way to get exactly the emojis I needed.

Select Box1, right click, then Order - Send to back. At this point Box2 and Box3 can be selected.

I don't use a template, because more likely I just want a consistent way to create a new document from an existing document - without accidentally editing the original document. I first create an ideal version of a file. From the menu, I then choose "Make a copy...", which then allows me to select the target Google Drive directory. This directory is where ...

If I understood it right, you are talking about Publishing a Google Presentation, which generates an HTTPS link. Unfortunately, there is no direct way to access it through HTTP. However, you could download your presentation and share it through another file sharing site.

There does not seem to be a way to do this. I have tried Cmd+C Dragging from one window to the next I assume these ways work pre-Google's new layout. And only fonts (not symbols such as omega) are recognized by the presentation when transferring. There is a lot of JS/CSS/HTML magic going on in there <span class="cmsy10">Â</span> As seen ...

If you position the cursor at the beginning of that line, like so and press ← Backspace once, the hanging lines will all align with the first line, like this: Note: This suggests that Google Slides uses some kind of pseudo-character to represent this type of hanging paragraph indentation. If you press ← Backspace again, all the lines will shift further to ...
