Save and Publish

I used to be able to change my google slides, go into my presentation, save and publish.  I now have to make a change or fake a change in my presentation before the save and publish are allowed to be pressed.  Is this a new feature?  Is there a way around this?

Fake a change is the solution. I addressed this 'issue' IMO before too. It looks like RV does not agree with us )))

Hi Linda,

Is this in the current Editor, or the Classic Editor?

Darius is correct, you'll need to "fake" a change in order to save and publish in Editor.

I'll go ahead and change this topic status to an idea. Perhaps if it gains some traction with the community, we could look at this as a future improvement.

I discovered my Slides changes were not propagating as well this past week. I haven't had a chance to try this workaround, but I'm in favor of fixing it sooner rather than later.

Darius,

Do you mean I should create a custom web page (hosted... somewhere?) with my Slide embedded, tweak it the way I would like, add the Web Page widget, point it to the custom web page, and then tweak the widget until it works?

So, I gave it a try, creating a very simple HTML file with the Slide's iframe (which I've been using in the HTML item) and uploaded it to my Rise Vision storage.
I put the link to the HTML file into a Web Page widget and it plays... but, there is a border where before there was none. In the iframe tag, I specifically set frameborder to 0 and it worked visually with the HTML item.

Adam,

You create file only once, store it wherever you want (I am using the Rise Vision Storage), and pull it to your presentation with the Web Page Widget (I am using new editor). Set your refresh interval (I have it set at 60 min), but you can force refresh with 'Publish' button. All the changes you have made in your slide's file get updated at this moment... matter of seconds. It is easy and works very well for our internal 'message board.' If you are interested I can share with my HTML code, although, I have published it already some place in this forum with detailed description.

There is really no need to tweak the widget if you get the HTML code right in your web page.

Darius,

You beat me to the punch. I had that page open and had to step away before I was able to follow any directions. With much tweaking of the margins, that did the trick. Thank you.

Fortunately, I'm not afraid of learning things, but I think this method of implementing Slides is a bit of a hassle for the typical end user. Sure, I only have to set this once, but months down the line, when I want to do a completely different Slides, I'll have to spend time refreshing my own memory on how to go about doing it this way. On the other hand, if there was a Slides widget...
