Deck Beta 0.5.1

May 1, 2020 at 8:34am (Edited 11 months ago)
Hello guys, I hope everyone is well and safe. For a while, I was working on the Sketch to Powerpoint converter and here is Deck 0.5.1
Before installing the plugin, make sure the old plugin is removed and then install 0.5.1

So what's new with 0.5.1

  • No more uploading config files manually
  • Improved uploading speed
  • More supported properties
  • Better conversion rate
I also tried testing with normal app screen designs rather than slide designs, and the conversion was pretty decent. Here is a preview
Also, you can check the getting started page for a written tutorial

Privacy

All files(.ppt) generated by the user are removed immediately once the hit the download button. We don't keep any files or sketch configuration files on our servers. We do keep a record of the files (Names, Sketch IDs) that are successfully converted
Suggestions and feedbacks are welcomed 😊

at what level do items have to be 'made exportable' in order to be rendered correctly?

complex screen design with many repeated symbols (a table with icons) gets real messed up :( workaround is to flatten to bitmap prior to activating...

All assets such as icons, illustrations & banners with shapes at any level. So instead of flattening to bitmap, you can simply make them as exportable and it would be rendered perfectly in the presentation file

Great news :-) I just made some testing and now I can design a 960×540 px Artboard in Sketch and it will be converted to the default Widescreen page setup 33,87×19,05 cm (13.333×7.5 inch) in Powerpoint, with pixel type size converted to same value point size. Very handy, thank you.
You can add the 960x540 Artboard trick to the FAQ, I am quite sure about that values now: even though it is not a well documented one it turns out that you CAN setup slides in pixels in Powerpoint. In Page Setup dialog, 960 px will translate in 13.333 inch and 540 px in 7.5 inch, you just need to specify the px unit along with the value. It looks like Microsoft still adheres to the old 72ppi convention. If your system uses cm (like mine) there will be a 0,01 cm rounding but hopefully that won't be a problem.
