Advanced Layout Options
And that’s all you need to know to create a beautiful presentation from a couple of bullet points and images. Deckset, however, has more fancy stuff to offer. Here are a few examples of its advanced layout options.
Split Slides. The modifiers left and right let you split a slide between image and text. Write the modifier in the field “Description” of Ulysses’ image popover.
Quote. Mark up a quote with >, its source with --.
Footers. To add a persistent footer to each slide of your presentation, insert the command footer: at the top of your file, followed by the text you want the footer to contain.
For further inspiration, open Deckset’s Help & Support page, or open the Help menu in the app.
Good to Know
Some of Deckset’s more advanced layout options require configuration commands enclosed in square brackets. In Ulysses, a square bracket will be automatically interpreted as a link. To prevent Ulysses from doing so, precede the square bracket with a backslash, like this:
The command in this example can be used to make the list on a specific slide appear item by item.
Deckset allows adding presenter notes to your slides. These notes will not appear on your slides, but on the presenter’s display (with two screens connected) or when using rehearsal mode. In Ulysses, start a paragraph with ^ to treat it as a presenter note.
In Deckset, click the “Rehearse” button at the center top to show a preview of your presentation together with your presenter notes.
And as soon as you’re ready, and your audience is listening, click “Play” top left — and wow them with a beautiful presentation.
