I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Redirect old URLs to the new version after a name change

    I changed the name of my deck and moved to my own subdomain on slides.com. The previous URLs I shared with everyone no longer work. They should redirect to the latest URL of the deck.

      Hey! We automatically redirect all of your presentation URLs when upgrading to a Team with a subdomain.

      We don’t provide an option for redirecting from any previous slug to a new one but that’s an interesting idea too.

      • Add layers support

        Hello,
        I think it would be very usefull to implement a layer system like in Photoshop or Gimp.
        It could improve maintenance and fragments so much !

        I do a lot of presentations with slides, on i always think "well, it's great, but it absolutly need layer".

        The main idea would be to allow user to create multiple layers on the same slide and select the one he want to see on work on by some checkbox or something like that, re-arrange layers order, etc.

        All the interest of this would be to animate layers by using them like fragment…

        • Add underline

          I frequently need to underline some part of my text and cannot find any option for that. Could be useful to add it !

          • save data in localstorage so that I can keep on editing presentation while offline.

            Sometimes there are problems with internet and we have to restart our machines to solve it. It would be great if you saved the data in browser's localstorage so that I don't loose any changes made offline.

            • Add More Effects, and allow IN & OUT effect per element

              some more effect ideas:
              https://www.dropbox.com/s/ryw3ybkgv5fj646/new%20effects%20slides.png?dl=0

              Also, in and out effect would help to create more video like effects, similar to animated banners.
              samples: bannernow.com

              Similar, a timeline for slides/animations would be EPIC :)

                • Embed Tweet

                  I would like to embed a single tweet into a Slide. Twitter provides embed code like this:

                  <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New! Turn your phone into a remote control with a text message (no sign-in needed) <a href="https://t.co/znYS4dc28f">pic.twitter.com/znYS4dc28f</a></p>&mdash; Slides (@slides) <a href="https://twitter.com/slides/status/867388192722493445?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 24, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js&quot; charset="utf-8"></script>

                  If I try to link just the Twitter URL - that provides an error in Slides. Is there any work-around to this?

                  I'd like to feature a single Tweet.

                        • Let fragments fade out partially to lead focus of observers

                          I would like to let fragments on slides readable but losing some opacity when fading in the next fragment. So viewers follow my speed of speech, but may still see the last topic on that slide.

                            As in Google Slides, apart from the directed lines and arrows, it would be nice to have a curved and elbow connector.

                            • Oembed Link With Total Slides & postMessage With Current Slide Number In Event

                              I am in the process of building an LMS that is capable of tracking progress for a variety of media types. I have found that many of the embedded iframes provided by companies that share media do not provide a simple solution for a developer to easily track progress of a client through the embedded content. Props to your team for using postMessage.

                              First off, it would be incredible if slides.com could provide an oembed route (https://oembed.com/) so developers could easily lookup and embed public presentations from just a link to the presentation (aka https://slides.com/oembed?format=[json/jsonp/etc]&url=http://slides.com/news/make-better-presentations#/).

                              In that,…

                              • In speaker view, a thumbnail view where you could navigate and advance to slides out of order by clicking a thumbnail.

                                If you could add another view with small thumbnail previews of all the slides so that a live presenter could go back to a slide by clicking its' thumbnail image. This would be helpful during Q&A or if a student or attendee was advancing slides on behalf of the speaker in order to keep the web audience in sync.

                                • Alternative Payment Option

                                  I'm missing a smaller pricing tier.

                                  I rarely present anything (<3 / year), but if i do, it generally needs to be private.

                                  Asking $60/year for that is just plain too much.

                                  Maybe consider a Single Payment type Upgrade for ~$10 thats limited to ~1-3 simultaneous private Presentation?

                                    • Support for font weights

                                      Open Sans and Montserrat have thin and light weights that are beautifully designed. I was disappointed to find that Slides only supports one or two weights. Giving us the ability to edit font-weights from 100-900 would give Slides far more design flexibility without loading extra fonts.

                                        While many users simply use slides as a background for their own real time speech, MANY of us would like to create slide presentations with background music and/or offline narration. "And/or" means loading the music and voice on separate tracks. Along with adding MUSIC (it's a greatly anticpated feature - trust me) would be the ability to change slides on command, not an "in every" choice, such as change slides every 10 seconds or every 3 seconds. As said better in another post, set showing time for each slide independently. Repeat: These are greatly anticipated features.

                                          I think it would be useful to have a tool to allow you to crop images that you import into the presentation
