PDF Slideshow

Offline Printing

GitPitch subscribers enjoy GitPitch Desktop. It’s a dedicated desktop presentation tool that let’s you develop, preview, and present slide decks offline.

Within the Desktop press the D key on your keyboard when viewing any slide deck to open the Desktop Document Generator. With one click you can then export your slide deck as a PDF document.

Your PDF document is a highly portable document that can be shared absolutely anywhere. It can also be published online to LinkedIn SlideShare.

GitPitch supports one-click PDF generation for any slideshow presentation published on gitpitch.com.

Simply click the Print Version (.pdf) on the Home Panel found under the slideshow menu to generate and download a PDF version of the slideshow.

See the Print Fragments Setting documentation to learn about PDF controls for presentation authors.

PDF generation can be a slow process, please allow ample time for download to complete.


Why are some of my images not appearing in the generated PDF?

If you print a slideshow presentation to PDF and some of the images used on your slides do not appear in the generated PDF output it is invariably due to images overflowing the edge of your slides.

Overflow often occurs when there is a mismatch in the aspect ratio of an image and the aspect ratio of the slide deck. For example, a tall-but-narrow image can easily overflow a wide-but-short slide.

The most reliable solution is to treat problematic images as background images, and then to take advantage background image scaling. For example, let’s assume the following markdown snippet results in a slide that fails to render properly as PDF due to image overflow:

# Slide Title


The recommended solution has two simple steps:

First, convert the problematic inline image to a background image, for example:


Second, activate scaling on the image to ensure it will be rendered within the confines of the space available on the slide, for example:

---?image=assets/img/tall.png&size=auto 90%

Finally, if the slide also contains text content you can take advantage of snap-layouts syntax to render the text alongside your new background image, for example:

---?image=assets/img/tall.png&size=auto 90%
