Slides

Paper automatically breaks up your doc into slides.

If you'd like to choose where your slidebreaks are, you can add a horizonal rule:

  • Type --- and press enter

For example, if you have a bulleted list, it may all appear on one slide:

  • Bullet 1
  • Bullet 2
  • Bullet 3
  • Bullet 4
  • Bullet 5
  • Bullet 6

You can add a horizontal rule to make sure that your bullets are on two slides:

  • Bullet 1
  • Bullet 2
  • Bullet 3

  • Bullet 4
  • Bullet 5
  • Bullet 6
