Google slide full screen on canvas app

Jump to solution


Hi

Embedded google slides are fine on a pc.  Great functionality and ability to make full screen.

On the canvas app, they show up great but it loses the functionality to make full screen.

Is it possible to allow full screen for google slides within the app?

I've included an image of the screen where you can see the full screen button is not present.

This is for all phone variations, iOS, Samsung, etc.

Many thanks

Dean

Actually, narrowing this down, it works fine on Android.  So mobiles using android have the option to see the embedded google slide at full screen.

It looks like this is an iphone iOS issue.

I'm not sure of the answer to your question, but I'm going to share it with the Canvas Mobile Users​ group to see if they can help!

I don't have the ability to go full-screen on a Google Slides presentation from my iPad either. ...so my guess it's iOS vs. Android, and not just an iPhone issue.

Does anyone have a workaround for this? I have tried it many different ways...resizing the slide, etc.

Hi Charissa

We ended up with a text link to view full screen which takes it to the google page to complement the embedded slide.  This might be a work around on an ipad (if it naturally scales to the screen size).

It requires a bit of html but once you've got the main layout, then it's copy and paste for each slide.

Here's the html below.  

The top section is a text link straight to the published google slide.

The bottom section is the embedding into canvas.  Note we set the size to be 366 by 266 and you can change this to your needs.

When you publish a google slide, all you need to copy is the bit from https up to embed?.  So for example

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1fN9XBxptVVXW5ZUhw6xbBBhvFXM_4AKqqYa0RhJ_CUs/embed?

grab that from the publish html that google give and paste it into the below html and you'll have embedded and a text link.

This is the best way we could think of at the time.  Would be great to hear if any one else had any solutions.

Hope that helps.
