First I really don't regret to went pro, your software is really useful.
A little thing that bothered me is that I had to add many URLs and I wasn't able to use the Ctrl-K (or Command-K on macs) shortcut that works in all google prodcuts (gmail, google docs, ...) and even in Word
Another standard shortcut would be "?" to show... well, the available keyboard shortcuts.
CTRL/CMD+K has been added as a shortcut for adding links.
I see it done on another rvl.io, but cannot seem to figure out how to make it happen.
Can anyone help me out?
So, perhaps the 'idea' is for a couple of instructional vid's to help some of us out. I LIKE the simplicity of this tool, so please don't "complex" it up.1 vote
In this presentation (only one slide) http://slides.com/zooomez/wow I have created an iframe containig an animated wowslider on a white background.
It seems the iframe has a background colour (#f0f0f0).
How can I remove this background or set its colour to #ffffff ?3 votes

Can I rename my username? if not, can I end my account and begin a new one?I've made a typo and cannot undo it.3 votes
Yes – you can now change your username on the user settings page. It’s available from the dropdown in the header.
For example: I want to have one picture appear on screen, and then on the next "fragment," I want to replace that picture with another picture.
I don't want to go onto another slide, I just want to replace one picture with another. It would be perfectly fine if this picture just went above the old one; all I care about is that the audience sees one, and then sees another.
I can't figure out a clean way to do this with slid.es.1 vote
The described use case should be more straight forward in the new editor that was just launched into public beta. You’ll need to add two images, turn them both into fragments, and drag them on top of each other.
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!
Ability to upload a presentation from PDF format. May just generate an image per slide, since converting the content to the Slides format would result in the loss of styles.23 votes
You can now import from PDF and PowerPoint. More info and instructions available here: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/487268-import-from-pdf-or-powerpoint
The downward arrow traditionally means 'download', not save.4 votes
We have update the icon. Thanks for the feedback.
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.1 vote
This has been added! The FB/Google auth options now appear on the team sign in page.
I've got text that I want to show it changes over time by layering each version of the text on top of each other and use fragment to transition between them. It would be nice to select from all the available fragment styles reveal.js has (http://lab.hakim.se/reveal-js/#/7/1) but I'm most in need of the `current-visible` style.10 votes
It’s now possible to select from multiple different fragment styles using the Slides editor. We included support for most (but not all) reveal.js fragment styles. More info and examples here: http://slides.com/news/fragment-styles
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'd love the ability to add custom code, like for embedding an iFrame.
Also, be able to use custom fonts, usually via services like Typekit, Google Fonts etc.15 votes
The HTML edit has since been added and it’s now possible to define custom fonts using the CSS editor (Pro-only).
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.
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.

Done! And thanks for the love!
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.
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.

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
