Layouts are responsive, they will adapt to various devices based on their content. The 15 built-in layouts can be grouped in 6 main categories:


It’s “Show Time”. While you follow your speaker notes on the teleprompter, your audience’s attention is caught by eye-catchy slides.


Add images and videos on the fly, the responsive layout will take care of the rendering. Local files of different formats and URL paths are supported.


The traditional Markdown syntax for images ![](image.png) is supported but we recommend the simplest images and videos.
