Updating slideshow links
Due to activity that will primarily be on the 1st Wednesday of each month if there are sufficient changes to warrant a release.
when i open up the powerpoint template from Excel vba it does not update the links.
Now you can switch between multiple transition modes like Fade, Slide, Cover flow, Cube and Flip.
Also change the slideshow direction from horizontal to vertical.
There are plans for significant updates to Views Slideshow for Drupal 8.
Views Slideshow has a release window every Wednesday.
Using hyperlinks and action buttons, you can link to other slides in your presentation or other presentations, link objects created in programs other than Power Point so that they'll update in your slideshow when the original is updated (such as Excel spreadsheets), or link to websites.
Readers can click on any image to launch a full-size carousel that allows them to scroll through the entire gallery one image at a time.
With the slideshow option, images will automatically move from one to the next after a few seconds.
Watch the video below for a quick overview of how it works, and read below for more examples and settings. Tiled layouts can display in one of three styles: rectangular tiles, square tiles, or circular tiles.
Another option is to add an Action button or hyperlink that returns you to your original presentation.
Just upload an image and that’s the one that will be taken as a cover.
Check out this project to see the new slideshow in action. Because you can use them in many ways and having a link allows you to directly share the popup URL and also use the browser's back and forward buttons.
