Slidium F.A.Q.

slidium preview window


It is recommanded to read Using images in Slidium

What are the image formats supported by Slidium?

  • Slidium support PNG, SVG, Jpeg and GIF formats.
  • If you drag and drop a PDF file, Slidium will use it as a link, not as an image. If you want to use it as an image, juste add a ! before it.

My image is not visible, what happens?

  • NOTE: relative images are broken in version 1.0.2 for newly saved files. A new version fixing that issue has been submitted to Apple.
  • Images require an URL, not a path. Hence, you cannot have spaces on it, they need to be escaped (replaced by %20). If you insert your image by drap and drop or with the insert function, it will be done automatically.
  • Make sure that your file is saved. Relative paths only work when the presentation file is saved and hence have a, absolute URL.
  • You may also need to allow Slidium to access to the directory containing the images.

Slides and layouts

How do I insert the 2 ° sign indicating a slide part separator?

  • Depending of your country you may have it directly on your keyboard (just on the right of the 0 key.
  • In US keyboards, you can use the Shift + Option + 8 keys combination.
  • Starting from version 1.0.3 of Slidium you can also use the menu option Insert > Part separator


If I detach the preview how do I reattach?

  • Preview window is magnetic. When detached, you just need to move it closely to the editor one to merge them again.
  • You can also use the View > Attach Preview Menu option

If I close the preview how do I get it back?

  • Starting from version 1.0.3, use the View > Show Preview Menu option
