Making slides is usually a matter of copy-and-paste from an old deck into a new deck (at least in Powerpoint). Copying is either a selection of elements from a slide, or one or more complete slides.
However I found it impossible to do copy-and-paste between different decks at slides.com. It is possible to clone an existing one - but what if it is too late or I want to copy from multiple sources?4 votes
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

… Would be great if GIFs only played on page load rather than playing constantly. They often end up half way through when you get to that slide.10 votes
GIFs now start playing when their containing slide is shown. This ensures they’ll always start from the beginning.
This logic is applied to both on-slide and background images. However restarting GIFs used as background images does not work in Firefox.
I have a large presentation file with many iframes to demo content within.
This causes the load of the presentation to lag whilst it spends ages preloading all of the content.
Either give us a global switch to not preload or perhaps a control within the 'iframe' option that allows us to determine if the content is preloaded or loaded when the slide comes into view.1 vote
Just confirmed this to be working. Iframes are only loaded for the three nearest slides. This is checked every time you navigate, if a new iframe appears within the 3-slide distance it will start loading.
Provide an interface option for configuring the line-height of text.31 votes
This has been added! The option is available right next to the letter spacing option, in the left sidebar.
Could we choose the PDF export quality (in pro version) ?
For now, the assets (images) are really poor quality :/8 votes
PDF export quality has been greatly improved and all font families and styles will now come through in the output.
We replaced our whole PDF generation pipeline with new software. This change means that quality is higher and presentations will look identical to how they do in a modern browser (Safari 8 to be specific).
This also applies to deck thumbnails.
given the <aside class="notes"> block used by reveal.js, it should be straightforward to accept speaker notes from imported html file, at least for the first 300 characters of the notes in each slide.
Very surprised that accepting also the speaker notes from an imported file is not supported!3 votes
This has been added. Going forward, imports will convert notes to Slides’ notes storage format.
HTML export into ZIP file with all assets such as images, JS, CSS, fonts, etc. The current HTML export only gives you the HTML where the assets are still online. I would still need the internet to run it.8 votes
ZIP download is now available in the editor Export panel! The downloaded archive includes all of the JS, CSS and images required for full offline access. This also provides a neat package for those who want to host their own content.
This feature is only available for Pro and Team users.
Be able to duplicate single slides would be great.
For e.g. when changing only one word it will be much easier than copy paste each slide content and position it.16 votes
It’s now possible to easily duplicate the current slide. This option is available inside of the templates selector which appears when you click to add a new slide.
Take a look at: http://cl.ly/image/422M1m1a2b0x/duplicate-slide-2.gif
Uploads Library. It would be nice to have a section where I can see and manage images I have uploaded. This would be great to re-use my own images on different presentations without having to upload multiple times.16 votes
This has been added through the new Media Library. More info: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/552825-media-library
Or at least raise the limit. 200 characters is debilitatingly small. It significantly reduces the usefulness of the tool!5 votes
This limit has been raised to 300 characters. More info in the comments.
I would like to have the ability to share my decks without the ability for other users to fork it. Is this possible?
One option would be to set the deck private but is there an alternative so that other people can still see my decks?

I would love the ability to be able to name elements with that name being applied to the presentation element (including the slide background) as a css class selector.
The purpose for this being to apply individual transitions & animations with CSS to specific elements only, for instance I may which to cycle the slide background color through a range of colors.
To save on system resources this would only apply to the present slide e.g.
/* Apply custom css */
This is now supported! Turn on the developer mode and you’ll have access to easy inputs for specifying CSS classes.
Classes can be added to individual elements within a slide or to the slide itself. Classes added to a slide also bubble up to its background element.
Add syntax highlighting for Scala code0 votes
Scala is already supported. I’ve linked to an example below:
Add the option to have page numbers at the bottom of each slide (separate from the progress bar setting).
People viewing a presentation could then refer to particular slides by number when they ask questions.87 votes
We added support for page/slide numbers! It’s a per-presentation setting that you’ll need to turn on. Oh, and it works with PDF exports too!
Ability to have images use url for the image source, rather than requiring an upload.4 votes
This has been added. See comments for details.
I would like to keep hyperlinks live within slides. Can this be dome?4 votes
This is already possible, more info: http://help.slides.com/knowledgebase/articles/553998-inserting-links
share slideshow with speaker notes visible25 votes
We’ve added an option for sharing your notes! Turn it on and anyone who views the deck is able to see your notes.
Complete html or other export, which will allow me offline browsing of presentation, including all the pictures and fonts, does not have to be editable.
Maybe take an inspiration from Prezi Pro single file export.
Can I use speaker view on an iDevice have to work over a similar internet connection?
e.g. i have my work computer connected to "work wireless", but i can't log onto that using my phone, so i connect my phone to "Personal wireless" and use speaker mode on my personal wireless, to control a presentation on a work wireless. Would this still work to control the slides?
If not could i suggest a bluetooth connectability function, perhaps presented in a "Remote Control" application.1 vote
Short answer: yes, see comments.
