Text generator / CSV generator

In this article

☝️ Note: This generator is only available in the Pro version.

With this generator you can show contents from a text file, or just a simple input field. Each line will be the data for each slides, and with a unique character or character chain you can separate the variables.

Tutorial

1
Have a text file

Have a txt file, which contains the text you want to have in your slides in separate rows, and delimit the variables by one or more unique characters. After you got it, you should upload this file somewhere, probably it would be best in your ftp server.

Example:
http://example.com/image1.jpg||My first slide||made by XY
http://example.com/image2.jpg||My second slide||made by XZ
http://example.com/image3.jpg||My third slide||made by ZXY
