Support 16:9 slide aspect ratio

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).

        You need to select your presentation size before you make your slides and delete the off-center first slide. New slides you make will be centered over the "+" at the bottom of the screen. Otherwise you will need to recenter everything by hand. At that point you are probably better off keeping the 4:3 resolution you started with so everything will at least be centered properly.

        Will you support 16:9 ratio soon? I love your product, but this is a deal breaker.

        You can do 16:9, but you have to push some elements outside of the 4:3 "boundary box" in the editor. It renders correctly on a 16:9 display in presentation. The problem is that if you try to export to PDF or PPT, the export cuts off at the 4:3 "boundary box." The resize rules you talk about don't apply to the export process.

        In the meantime can we get some documentation of how 4:3 slides are rendered on a 16:9 display?

        Agree with previous comment. If 16:9 was a standard it would make the decision to use slides.com a lot easier to make.

        not having an option for a 16:9 grid is almost a deal breaker for me...

        PDF at 16:9 and grid switching seems like two separate features. - both get +1's from me

        @florlan, @Zach seconded. Support for 16:9 is really important for me.

        Full screen mode already supports this, but the background grid in the UI could switch between the two ratios.
