How do create, edit and delete Zoho Show presentations within Confluence?

Create, edit, and delete presentations within Confluence

Create a Zoho Show presentation within Confluence

A Zoho Show presentation can be inserted like any other macro in a Confluence page. Create a new page in Confluence, or edit existing pages that you have permission to edit. Install the Show add-on to make unique and custom presentations with the ability to edit, publish, and access files online at any time, right within Confluence ecosystem. Utilize various design and format options of Zoho Show available on the right pane to customize your slide and its objects. The online presentation tool helps you bring out the best look for your presentation while working together with your team on Confluence.

To create a presentation within the Confluence page,
1.  Open the Confluence editor page, click the Insert  dropdown on the toolbar and choose Show macro from the list. 

Another way to insert a new Show macro is to use a curly bracket. Type {show, then press Enter. Users of new Confluence editor can type a back slash like /show and press Enter to add the macro.

2. You can either create a new presentation or duplicate an existing presentation for reuse as follows:
  • To create a new presentation, click Select Theme from the left pane, select your preferred theme from the Theme Gallery and enter a name for your presentation in the Untitled Presentation text box. Finally, click Create.

    This will open into the Show editor window with a default title slide of the chosen theme and default slide layout (Title). Learn about using various features on Zoho Show.
  • To duplicate an existing presentation, click All Files from the left pane, select the presentation to copy from the list and click Duplicate. 

  1. To import a presentation, click Import Files from the left pane and the Upload Files button to select the desired file i.e. saved on your local computer. You can import file formats such as .pptx , .ppsx , .ppt.
3. Once you're done, click Back to Confluence Editor at the top-right corner.
You will now see your presentation added within the Confluence editor. 

4. Finally, click Publish (at the bottom-right) within your Confluence page. 
You can now use the navigation arrows to move forward (right) and backward (left) between your slides and click Fullscreen  icon to watch a full screen of your slides on the screen. Zoho Show also has settings to create and play custom slideshows and even control every aspect of your slideshow, including transition, looping, and animations.

Edit an existing presentation within Confluence

Edit and make changes to the existing Zoho Show presentations on the Confluence page. Customize your slides by adding your favorite background, choosing the right fonts, and inserting pictures, shapes, animations, transitions, media and more. 

To edit an existing presentation within the Confluence,
Open the Confluence editor page, click on your existing Zoho Show presentation within the page and then select Edit. Once done with your edits, click Back to Confluence Editor at the top-right of the screen.

Confluence offers the ability to move and copy presentations within pages in an existing space, or even to a different space. Choose to copy presentations as an entirely new file within a page or keep them linked to their original file, preserving all slide and formatting properties. Duplicating and linking to the source file might come handy when your team wants to reuse (making minor updates) those hard worked sales reports, workflow diagrams and projects models across different Confluence pages, such as knowledge base, blog, and wiki page, with ease. This further saves time and effort in recreating or designing slides from scratch.
To copy-paste presentations from one confluence page to another,
1. Open the Confluence editor, select your Zoho Show presentation to copy and press Ctrl+C or Cmd+C.

2. Paste the presentation into the desired confluence page.

3. Double-click on the copied presentation to view and edit your slides.
From the window, you can either choose to duplicate or stay linked to the original  presentation as follows:
  1. Click Duplicate to make a new copy of the original presentation, with its content linked only to this page. Any change made in the original file will not reflect here, and vice versa.
  2. Click Stay linked to open a copy of the presentation that will stay linked with the original (source) presentation. Any changes made in the original presentation will reflect in all the attached Confluence pages and vice-versa.

    Stay synced with your existing presentation in Confluence.
You can unlink a presentation anytime inside the Zoho Show editor by clicking  the Link  icon next to the presentation title in the top-left corner and choosing Duplicate. 
4. Finally, click Continue. 
This will open the Zoho Show's editor to edit, design, and customize slides.
