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.
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
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.
Ability to create folders/groups of slides85 votes
Now you can group your decks using tags!
Learn all about it in the docs: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/1838059-organizing-decks-tags

Love, love, love slides.com. Amazing tech!1 vote
Done! And thanks for the love!
Currently, when clicking on the Login from a team profile page, it shows the form without social login (e.g. no Google Apps login). Hence, my login looks like this, every time: http://g.recordit.co/4HWx9c20FM.gif
It'd be nice to see the same Login page as the one that can be reached from the homepage.4 votes
This has been added! The FB/Google auth options now appear on the team sign in page.
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.

but its a bit buggy still...7 votes
Hey! We now let you upload videos from your hard drive and insert them into the presentation. We automatically transcode to a format that can be played anywhere.
You can also insert a video by pointing to an external URL. Look for the “Insert from URL” option in the media library.
Let us know if you have any feedback!
You can have maybe a small box in the corner of presentation mode to tell you how many people are viewing you presentation live.2 votes
Hey! Thanks for the suggestion.
We already show the number of viewers in the “speaker view”: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/333923-speaker-view
We don’t show it on the present page since the content there will be visible to viewers if you’re presenting in person.
YAML Should be added to syntax highlighting.
Previously it was declined due to highlight.js not having support. This is not the case anymore.3 votes
Thanks for the heads up. We just updated to highlight.js 9.0.0 which adds YAML. You’ll need to reload the editor for it show up though!
is it possible to arrange the slides at the profile page?
its not alphabetical...
nor by date...
what's the rules for that???7 votes
We’ve now made it possible to sort and search through decks on the profile page! This option is available at the top of the page for any account that has two or more decks.
By default, decks are sorted by the time when they were created.
Will there be an option to integrate typekit fonts?15 votes
We now allow you to use custom fonts from Typekit and Google Fonts. More info here http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/1077976-custom-fonts-pro
Let us know if you have any feedback!
This is supported in ipython markdown and is pretty standard in most TeX implementations. It is of great use for statistical or probability-oriented decks, since we use cursive letters to denote distributions. (N= Gaussian, U=uniform...)3 votes
We just released support for font changing functions, like \mathcal.
More specifically we now support: \mathcal \mathbb \mathfrak \mathtt and \mathbf.
You would be able to specify inline math using `$` symbol, (just like in IPython notebook markdown). I'm really tired of putting spaces in my paragraphs to make room for symbols.68 votes
We’ve added support for inline math! It previews right within the editor, as soon as you finish editing the text.

Would be great to have different transitions for fragments.
As it stands they just appear, but it would be nice to have them slide in or convex etc.4 votes
We just made it possible to select from a few different fragment transitions. Learn more here: http://slides.com/news/fragment-styles
Never hide the present button, it's a too important feature1 vote
Agreed – we’ve made this change. Note that you can also reach the present view via the preview which is available as a green button in the top left.
Have you planned to add animation effects to the elements? It's the only thing missing to make your software even more awesome than it is and compete with Keynote. Cheers94 votes
Now you can add animations to elements! There’s a few different preset intro animations to pick from and you can freely control the duration/delay.
This option is available in the sidebar when an element is highlighted: https://s3.amazonaws.com/static.slid.es/support/sidebar-animation.png
