    User permission management

    You can now choose to give only the sharing rights for your Seidat team members instead of giving full editing and sharing rights. This will help you to take more control over your team's presentations.

    Just "untap" the editing rights from the users you want to limit the editing from.


    Slide editor text update

    We have completely rebuilt the text editor to make it much more user-friendly. Your old slides will look just the same as before. However, if your text was using missing styles or had incorrect line heights, you will notice it fixing itself once you start editing the text.

    You can now:

    • Edit styles (bold, bullet etc.) of text elements without activating them
    • Edit multiple text elements at once
    • Drag and drop text

    Other changes include:

    • All line and text styles are kept when copy pasting text.
    • Line height and bullet point styles are now consistent with the text on the line.
    • The toolbar is more mobile friendly.
    • Strikethrough button removed as unnecessary. If you are one of the very very few who use strikethrough, you can still get it by pasting some into the text element.
    • Text links have been removed, though current ones will keep working. Please use element links from now on instead.
    • All toolbar buttons now have tooltips
    • Fixed a bug where exported presentations would not support Cyrillic, Greek etc. characters.
    • Fixed a several bugs related to selecting, moving and resizing elements, especially on mobile devices.


    • You can now disable navigation bar or navigator menu on a shared presentation
      • first append a questionmark (`?`) at the and of the Seidat link.
      • Then add `navbar=0` or `navigatorMenu=0`.
      • If you want to turn off both, put an ampersand (`&`) in between.
      • I.e. `?navbar=0&navigatorMenu=0`


    • Presentations shared on social media are now accompanied by a thumbnail of the first slide. (An open graph image)
      • This makes your share more visible and lets your audience get a taste before they click.

    Slide editor

    • There is now an element list in the properties panel on the right, where elements can be arranged, named, and locked.
      • A more comprehensive permission system is being planned, but in the meanwhile element locking can also help maintainability.
    • You can also lock  (cmd+l)  and unlock  (cmd+shift+l)  /  (cmd+u)  elements using the keyboard shortcuts, or the toolbar button.
    • There are also new keybindings for selecting all elements  (cmd+a)  and selecting none  (cmd+shift+a) .
    • Element links now accept email links, e.g.  that will open an email client when clicked.


    • Embedded elements should now always be included in exported presentations, and be more consistent in general.
    • And many other small or browser specific fixes.


    • You can now pay by card. We accept all major debit and credit cards. Payments process through Stripe (, and we never see sensitive card data.
    • You can now control and the amount of seats you have through the app, making it easy to stick to a set monthly payment, even while adding and removing users.
    • Customers paying by card will be able to download their receipts from the 'Team settings'. Receipts are also emailed to the Team owner.
    • Your teams are now visible under a separate tab under the 'My account' page.


      • When you get invited to a team you will now recieve an email about it, whether you have a Seidat account or not.
      • Team owners will get notified by email when:
        • A team trial is about to end.
        • A card payment failed.
        • A team is canceled due to failed payments.
      • New email templates.
      • Clearer "Create new team" dialog when trying to access team features from private.
      • "Terms of Service" agreed to on registration or first login through popup.
        • link to "terms of service" etc. also in the new footer


      • There is now a "default" presentation on every new team and new account created after 30.11.2017
      • Helps with deployment and getting to know the system when you are new to Seidat


      •  "Open in a new tab" is now working for most links and buttons where it is relevant.
      • Slide editor popups now use the screen more efficiently.
      • We made it clearer when forms and popups etc. are "processing" your update.
      • Element focus on keyboard tabbing is now visible. For modal dialogs, tabbing navigation is limited to the dialog.

      We are now reusing thumbnails, so thumbnails should appear immediately for copied slides and presentations.



      • Undo (cmd+z) and Redo (cmd+shift+z) with virtually unlimited history. (Saved locally, no online versioning yet).
      • Select multiple elements by dragging or shift clicking.
      • Move, scale and edit multiple elements, though dragging or the side panel.
      • Use svg and gif images as backgrounds.
      • Nudge elements around with the arrow keys, or push them around a bit further with ctrl+arrow. (uses grid spacing)
      • "outline elements" by checking the setting in the editor panel.

      COLLABORATION - When you are editing a slide and:

      • the slide gets saved elsewhere, the editor updates as well. History (undo/redo) is kept so that you can undo.
      • the slide gets moved, the editor follows.
      • the slide is deleted by someone, you get the option to "restore" (re-add) it.


      • Element snapping lines go to the snapped-to element.
      • Elements no longer jitter when snapping.
      • Each element is now on its own layer. (= Only one element / layer, and no more layers than there are elements. No upper cap.)
      • The text editor should now be more reliable and consistent.
      • Text boxes have height again, but "overflow" if they are not big enough. They grow to fit the content when editing content.
      • The way we save slides has changed to allow for some new features. Even very old slides should be converted correctly, however, there may be some problems with some edge cases. (Though none that we know of at the moment.)
      • The grid is now on top of everything, rather than below.
      • Escape closes popups, de-activates text element, or de-selects selected elements.
      • Shortcuts on mac are now in the format: Cmd+key, while windows uses Ctrl+key.
      • Both Delete and Backspace now remove elements.
      • Ctrl-x for cut.
      • The object transform fields in the right panel have switched places to actually correspond with the "element anchor" and "aspect ratio" icons.
      • Pasted objects are now offset a little (follows grid spacing), if the original object is still in place.
      • Images removed from the imagebank are now also removed from all slides.


      Autoplay is now available for your presentations when needed.

      • You can set autoplay on from the right bottom corner of each presentation by clicking the clock-icon.
      • The default autoplay time is 90 seconds per slide. Change the amount of seconds from the presentation's settings.
