Snap Layouts

GitPitch provides a markdown snap-layout syntax that can be used to control the placement of content on any slide.

This feature can be used to override the automatic slideshow layout for individual content on individual slides. Giving you the power to create unique layouts for your content on any slide.

The remainder of this guide describes how you can use snap-layouts to take control of content placement on your slides.

Note: The Snap Layouts feature is supported by, GitPitch Desktop, and GitPitch Enterprise. This feature is not part of the GitPitch open source project.

Snap Layouts Backstory

Presentation tools like Powerpoint and Keynote support drag-and-drop interfaces. Each slide is a blank canvas. When working with these tools, presentation authors have two responsibilities - (1) slide content creation and (2) slide content placement.

Creating presentations using GitPitch involves writing markdown to develop slide content. This approach lets presentation authors focus squarely on content creation. By default, slide content placement is handled by the automatic slideshow layout setting.

For some use-cases, the drag-and-drop approach has the clear benefit of flexibility in support of rich slide designs.

GitPitch snap-layouts give you the best of both worlds. When needed, you get to enjoy fine-grained control over slide content placement from directly within your presentation markdown.
