Pro Bonus Features


GitPitch Pro Bonus activates a number of bonus features for presentation authors.

Remember to check back here periodically as new bonus features may be added over time.

1. Pro Slideshow Presentation Template

GitPitch Pro users can take full advantage of The Template to quickstart any slideshow presentation.

The Template is a collection of flexible slide designs available out-of-the-box to GitPitch presentation authors. Developed using markdown. And shipped with powerful, built-in CSS style rules that you can easily customize to meet your presentation needs.

The fastest way to get started with The Template is to let GitPitch Desktop automatically generate a starter presentation for you. You can learn more in the Desktop Template Quickstart Guide.

Remember, as a GitPitch Pro user you can enhance the slide designs demonstrated in The Template by making use of the full set of Pro Image Features.

2. Pro Slideshow Pro Fonts

By default, the font used to render text on your slides is determined by the font-family style rule set by the fixed theme active for your presentation.

Pro Fonts deliver new and beautiful typographic options for GitPitch Pro users. And thanks to a little bit of GitPitch magic, Pro Fonts work flawlessly whether you are sharing your slideshow content online or presenting offline.

3. Pro Slideshow Emoji Support

GitPitch Pro users can add emojis to any slide. Emojis let you inject a rich visual representation of an easily identified object, thought, or feeling alongside text on any slide. When used judiciously, emojis can help to enrich tone, add clarity, and even humor to a slideshow presentation.


For detailed emoji documentation including sample markdown, see the Markdown Pro Widgets guide.

4. Pro Slideshow Offline Video Streaming

GitPitch Pro user can stream MP4 and WebM video content directly from the local repository when presenting offline using GitPitch Desktop.

Simply add your MP4 and WebM video content to the Git repository for your presentation and then use relative paths to the video files on standard video delimiter syntax.

This feature is perfect for live presentations when you need to deliver course or training materials that includes video content and you do not want to fall victim to the demo gods.

For further details about offline video streaming, see the Rich Media Features guide.

5. Pro Slideshow Presentation Menu Control

By default, every GitPitch slideshow presentation displays a slideshow menu in the bottom-left corner of each slide. This menu gives both you and your audience access to additional features including offline support, printing to PDF, and navigation by table-of-contents.

However, there are times when you want your audience to focus exclusively on your online presentation content. Without the potential distraction of the slideshow menu. For these occasions, you can activate the pro-menus-hidden property within your PITCHME.yaml file:

pro-menus-hidden : true

When this property is enabled, the slideshow menu will not be displayed when your presentation is rendered.

As a presentation author you can control the visibility of the slideshow menu for your presentations by enabling or disabling the pro-menus-hidden property at any time.

6. Pro Slideshow Presentation Title Setting

By default, GitPitch slideshow presentations render using a fixed HTML title, GitPitch Markdown Presentation. However, there are often times when you will want to set a custom title for your presentations to avail of the following benefits:

  • Display a custom title for the presentation in search-engine results
  • Define a custom title for the presentation in the browser toolbar or tab
  • Provide a custom title for the presentation when it is added to favorites

You can activate a custom HTML title for any presentation using the title property within your PITCHME.yaml file:

title : "Markdown Magic - Web Summit Keynote 2019"

As a GitPitch Pro user you can take advantage of the title setting to activate a custom title for your presentations.

7. Pro Slideshow Twitter Card Settings

As a presentation author you want to maximize the results when you or anyone else shares a link to your slide deck on services like Twitter, Slack, or LinkedIn.

By default, links to GitPitch slideshows are rendered as a Twitter Card or Open Graph card using default text and images, as follows:


As a Pro user, you can customize the content of these social media cards when displayed on a wide range of services. For details, see the Twitter Card Settings Guide.
