Ludus 1.1.0, with scrollable viewer!




There is a new feature in the publish/share panel to make your presentation "scrollable" like a good old PDF document.

It's sometimes more relevant than a slide by slide approach.

You can also hide the viewer controls so it really looks like a usual webpage.

We hope it will inspire you and unleash your creativity: why not using it to build a landing page? Your creative portfolio? We had some fun experimenting with it already, you can check the result:

We can't wait to see what you'll be using it for!


Ludus 1.0.4





  • Better memory management
  • Faster thumbnail generation
  • Long font names in the editor dropdown are visible via a tooltip





  • Fix several issues with the latest Safari 15.0 release and Ludus editor. If you face issues using this navigator, please don't hesitate to report it. In the meantime it's probably best to switch to Chrome based browsers or Firefox

Ludus 1.0.3





  • Several issues with images have been fixed
  • Some old text block had a very weird behavior while undoing/redoing
  • Fix some edge case with Smart Block overrides





  • Better performance on big presentation while editing

Ludus 1.0.2





  • Issue with slide numbering (via [#] in a text block)
  • Issue with automatic system theme detection on old browser (could block the access to the dashboard or editor)
  • Some Smart Blocks had a wrong opacity in the viewer
  • Charts and other "dynamic" content export correctly in PDF

Ludus 1.0.1





  • Fix an issue with cropped images of old versions of Ludus
  • Copy URL button in publish panel is now working in all cases
  • Speaker notes are now live, no need to publish anymore!
  • Fixed an issue in the viewer for objects with a link to another side: it could stop working if clicked during a transition
  • Fixed glitches with dark/light theme
  • Some objects could be in a weird "unlockable" state when unlinked from a template
  • Fixed an issue preventing the slide manager to be draggable





  • Images are now using WebGL less often, resulting in better memory management (if you had your browser flickering sometimes that will fix it โ€” hopefully ๐Ÿ˜…)
  • The viewer should now feel faster when using transitions: you don't have to wait until it's finished before you can switch slides


Ludus 1.0






We are finally releasing what we consider Ludus 1.0. Why? Because it has finally a fully working live collaboration feature. The whole app has been deeply reworked, and it should be much more reliable and performant.

What new then? โคต๏ธ

1. Live collaboration

Everything now works in real time, no more weird limitations.


2. Draft/published presentations

Work on your presentation and publish only when you feel like it. This allows you to work in confidence, on an already shared presentation.

3. Live viewer

When working on a presentation, the preview is synced live with the editor. No need to reload.

4. UI Theme: dark or light, choose your side!

By default, it will use your system settings. But you can manually choose a theme: in the dashboard or editor, go to the top left menu and select "Interface settings".

5. Smart Blocks 2.0

All properties of an instance are now editable (previously it was only possible for text fields), directly from the canvas.


6. Google Drive integration

You can now create a new Ludus presentation directly from Google Drive. That way, it will be synchronized at all times and you'll be able to continue handling all your documents, including Ludus presentations, directly from Google Drive.

โžก๏ธ All the details are here

Minor fixes





  • Fix Unsplash that didn't want to load
  • Fix visual glitch when cropping an image
  • Improve rendering of an old path object (if you saw that one thanks for being such a loyal user ๐Ÿ˜…)
  • Fix issues with team invites
  • Fix issues when opening a viewer when using a custom domain
  • Fix date issue in billing tab in Safari
  • Fix hyperlink on text or shapes that could overlap the entire slide in some situation
  • Fix color picker: it could crash when you copy/paste a color value

Improved font dropdown





You can search in the font menu and navigate it by keyboard. Also, the most used fonts in the current presentation are always at the top of the list. You just become much more productive! ๐Ÿ™‚

Curved line





See the life on the bright side! It's time to curve your lines!

Viewer 4.5





We improved our viewer to use less memory, be snappier and more precise. It also has been completely revamped internally to be a lot more efficient one mobile, even if you integrate intensive integration such a SketchFab or Figma.
