Layout Markdown Add Layout Information for your Presentation

When you write the Markdown-formatted text content that will become your presentation, will automatically create slides for you. And most of the time, they will look fine.

But what if you want to fine-tune the design of a slide?

We added an options syntax that allows you to fine-tune your presentation: You can select different slide masters for your slide, configure the size of presentation elements, and more.

Also, we added options to render tables as charts (and not as an ordinary table) - You can see how that looks like in the screen shot above.

Or do you want to render maths formulas? No problem, you can use latex:
