Export Slide Deck Workflow Constraints

In order to deliver pixel-perfect rendering across PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides, all changes to slide content must be made within GitPitch Desktop.

Once exported and opened in PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides, slide content generated by GitPitch can not be edited, or otherwise modified. Although new content can be added to slides within these tools. And individual slides can also be deleted within these tools.

Export Slide Deck Content Constraints

While exporting GitPitch slide decks to PDF and PPTX delivers pixel-perfect rendering inside PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides there are a number of limitations on the types of content that can be exported.

PDF export constraints:

  • Video and Asciinema playback is disabled on export.
  • Animated GIFs are exported as a single static image.
  • Speaker notes are disabled on export.

PPTX export constraints:

  • Video and Asciinema playback is disabled on export.
  • Animated GIFs are exported as a single static image.
  • Hypertext links are disabled on export.
  • Speaker notes are disabled on export.

While these content types are disabled on export, you can open and edit generated PPTX files within PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides to update your slide deck content if needed. For example, you could add a dedicated slide at the end of your PowerPoint deck that includes active links to related content.
