The ability instead of just having images for backgrounds, allowing the user to use various formats for full screen video13 votes
We’ve added support for video! Videos can be added in the background or as part of the slide content.
You can insert a video either by uploading it to our servers (100 MB max) or specifying an external URL.
More info about how to add a background video can be found here: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/405958-slide-backgrounds
Let us know if you have any feedback.
Being able to reset the timer on the speaker's view would be nice. It would allow one to get prepared but then still have a valid timer.
Hi Matt – you can click on the timer to reset it, like this: http://f.cl.ly/items/2m2v2U0l2y1d2r093W3c/speaker-view-reset-timer.gif
Random slides, for creative and interactive presentations.38 votes

The ability to make a fragment disappear.64 votes
We just made it possible to select from multiple different fragment styles. If you use the "Fade out style, content will be visible from the start and then disappear.

I often make svg animation by adobe edge；
it will be very useful；
sorry for my Chinglish1 vote
We try to support all SVG. If something isn’t working please let us know by sending a message through the Contact Support link on help.slides.com
The arrange mode gives an overview of the slides but the system for moving them was non-obvious to me and very cumbersome: moving a slide across the deck is requires as many clicks as there are slides!
I would rather drag-and-drop the slides, perhaps you could have a drag icon/handle.116 votes
We just rolled out the new arrange mode! The new version is entirely drag-and-drop based. Plus, we’ve made it possible to select and drag or delete multiple slides at once so that you can work faster.
Please let us know if you run into any issues and we’ll address them as soon as possible. Thanks!
The Slides for Opacity is terrible UX. I have slides with lots shaped, which I want to enable and disable often, and it kills me, that I have to hit the 50% exactly every time ..
Alternatively please implement a text-input for this. Sometimes I edit the opacity directly in developer-mode, but it is not really better :/3 votes
This has been changed. Opacity was the only field that was still using our slider input so made sense to converge on the numeric stepper that we use for everything else.
It would be nice to support changing higlight.js theme.
The default (zenburn?) code highlight theme is unreadable when presenting on projector.
At least some black on white would be very useful.27 votes
We’ve added 11 different highlight themes that you can choose from!
This is available through next to where you select language, see: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/social/slides-highlight-theme.gif
I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.14 votes
We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!
Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.
embebed export presentation to be responsive0 votes
The presentation inside of the embedded iframe is already responsive. However you the embedding site will need to use CSS to resize the iframe element based on viewport size and layout.
In some cases it might be enough to change the “width” attribute in the embed code to 100%.
I want to be able to just copy and paste pictures in my presentation instead of screen shoting something and then having to download it from my drive.1 vote
Hey. It’s already possible to copy and paste images directly from your clipboard. Here’s an example where I right click to copy and press CMD+V to paste in the Slides editor: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/social/slides-copy-paste-image.gif
Note that this only works if you haven’t already copied a block of content inside of the Slides editor. If you’ve already copied a block you can reload the editor. Those two conflict because we have our own copy-paste logic in the editor and can not tap into the operating system’s own logic.
At conferences, most stages now have a 16:9 aspect ratio. It would be really great if slides will support authoring decks in that format (+ export).
This has been added!xx You can now select from multiple different aspect ratios in the presentation settings. It’s even possible to define your own custom resolution.
Possibility to export speaker notes (within the pdf export of the slides)1 vote
This is now supported through the new “Share notes” option. Find out more here: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/729753-sharing-decks-with-speaker-notes
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
You offer AutoPlay for YouTube and Vimeo only, while Wistia, being a well known runner up, doesn't offer one.
Sure, you could use parameter ?autoPlay=true, but Slides.com does not play nicely with that and starts playing all iframes as soon as presentation loads, instead of when entering slide.
That bug is solved by using the provided AutoPlay feature, which is currently not offered for Wistia.3 votes
It'd be great if there was an option to not only resize, but also rotate elements (eg images, text boxes etc.)187 votes
This has been added! Now you can grab any corner of a selected element to rotate it. The angle is displayed in the toolbar so that you can apply the same rotation to multiple elements or set a specific number.
Here’s a quick screen recording showing how it works: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/support/rotation.gif
It would be useful to be able to command-click to select more than one object at a time. I have been trying to make some cool shapes, but sadly I have to remake them every time I create a new slide piece by piece!3 votes
I would love the ability to add simple lines with arrowheads to point from one element to another on my slides.
I am requesting this here because there really is no simple workaround. Users are forced to paste an image of a line with a 38° tilt and an arrowhead.
Of course, no line tool would be complete without dashed and dotted styles. Thank you for considering this suggestion.81 votes
You can now add directed lines and arrows through the new line content block!

Add a giant question mark on the editor window that links to the knowledge base: why do I need to go the slides.com for this?1 vote
Thanks for the feedback! A link to the knowledge base and help forum has been added to the bottom of the sidebar.
There was already a support link there but it’s only been visible to Pro users up until now. If this ends up increasing our support ticket queue too much we may have to revise. We’re a small team and have to prioritize speedy support for our paying customers.
