I often want to open up multiple decks for review/editing. I'd like to be able to "ctrl-click" the Edit icon to open in a new tab... but since they are buttons and not links, this doesn't work. Can you change them to a link styled as a button to support this? Thanks!3 votes
Good feedback, thanks! That button has been swapped out for a link.
Would be great to see TypeScript and Flow added as supported syntax languages!3 votes
We’ve added TypeScript to the list of syntax highlighting languages.
Flow isn’t supported by the software we use for syntax highlighting (highlight.js) so unfortunately we’re not able to add that.
Thanks for the feedback!
Is there any possibility to mark or copy more than one element at one time from one slide to another in the same deck? Normally you do this with STRG/ CTRL (holding and clicking) but this doesnt work - or just for me? Hope it works and I just don't knot the proper shortcut. Otherwise I hope this post is new and is not existing already.3 votes
Hey! This is already supported, the shortcut is SHIFT + click. We also support CTRL/CMD + A to select all.
One more option is to click and drag on the empty canvas, this way you can select all elements within an area.
The new video functionality is great! In order to use non-autostart videos in the speaker view mode, it would be good if starting the video in speaker view would also trigger a start in the live view. If cumbersome to arrange with controls, it is enough to have an option "play on click".3 votes
This has been added! Playing, pausing or seeking a non-autoplaying video will now sync to all live viewers.
I'm currently drafting them in a separate app and copying/pasting due to the limited window size.
It would be wonderful to have more space along with toggle and export features as suggested by others.1 vote
You’re right that the note input window was way too small. We’ve increased the size to more than double what it was previously.
The plan is to make it possible to toggle the notes window on and keep it visible as you step between slides too, which I think will make for a much better workflow.
Thanks for the feedback.
The word "fork" is very technical, so it appears odd to non-technical users, which is what it seems slides.com is for as opposed to reveal.js. In some places you already use copy in place of fork. It would be great to use copy everywhere. In particular on the presentation screen where it says "forked from ____" it would be great to either have the option of hiding this information of not using the word fork.4 votes
I agree “fork” is a very technical term and, as you pointer out, we started referring to it as “copy” in a few places. I just went ahead and replaced the rest of the places where we said fork. Take a look and let me know if you notice any errors.
It would be nice to see presentation titles on the main page. They're shown on the profile page but not the home page. They could be shown in a similar fashion as the author is now. When you have a lot of presentations that looks similar (most of ours are based on a few templates) this would make it easier to quickly find what you're looking for.7 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We’ve updated this so that the title is included below deck thumbnails.
When an iframe is added to the background(advanced feature) it displays perfectly. However it appears that the <div class="slides"> is blocking all the input to the iframe. Im wondering if this is the intended functionality or if it would be possible to still interact with the iframe background.3 votes
We just revised how this works. From now on, you will be able to interact with a background iframe as long as the slide itself is completely empty. If there is slide content in the foreground, that will take precedence and prevent you from clicking through to the iframe background.
Hope that makes sense and thanks for the feedback!
Save latest selected code theme like you already save code language.
It will save users time and make UI more consistent.1 vote
Good feedback, thanks. I’ve updated the theme selector to pick its defaults based on existing code blocks, just like language selector works.
Make it possible to set the background-position of a background image. In particular I need to be able to specify the equivalent of data-background-position='bottom right'1 vote
Great idea. I needed a break from what I was doing so I went ahead and added this. Reload the editor and you should see this new option next to where you pick background size.
You really need to give users the ability to choose a presentation size. The reason this is is that you need to give user the ultimate freedom with their designs and right now you box them into your own grid which constrains my ability to design.7 votes
A new setting has been added for this. You can now select from multiple different sizes or specify a custom size in the presentation settings.
because "less" is used with non-countable nouns whereas "fewer" is used with countable nouns. Since "Options" is countable, it should be "Fewer options".1 vote
This has been updated. Thanks!
I think it would be very useful to be able to upsize a deck embedded into a personal site, blog or news article.12 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We have turned on upsizing on the /embed page.
Add default code language to deck settings so that language will be the default selected when a code block is added to a slide1 vote
Great feedback, this is a pain point I’ve been meaning to address.
From now on we remember the last language you selected and use that as a default for any new code block you insert. When you reload the editor, we default to the language used in the first code block we find in the deck.
Note that you’ll need to reload the editor to see this change.
I love that we can now draw a line, but it's helpful to make them dashed or dotted.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback. We have added support for dotted and dashed lines now: https://twitter.com/slides/status/726062777282998273
I often use shapes like circles and squares to create a basic diagram, and it would be useful to add an outline, so that I can have a white or transparent box with a thin dark border.1 vote
Hey! This is actually possible already. The option to add a border is available to all “basic” shapes like rectangles and circles. Look for the “Border” option further down in the left toolbar.
When using Speaker View on a slide with an iframe video set to autoplay, the video plays on both the speaker view and presentation view. This is particularly problematic due to the audio being doubled. I suggest not displaying the video in Speaker View. Instead display player controls. This would be helpful if not using autoplay.1 vote
This has been fixed – autoplay is now ignored in the speaker view. Thanks for the suggestion!
Feel free to submit a new idea if you also want to suggest the addition of video controls.
Elixir is already supported by highlight.js.

If you have a Pro account you can export to PDF and include that in an email. http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/496994-export-to-pdf-pro
We don’t support exporting to PPT but in terms of email portability PDF should be even better.
