  1. Add layers support

    Hello,
    I think it would be very usefull to implement a layer system like in Photoshop or Gimp.
    It could improve maintenance and fragments so much !

    I do a lot of presentations with slides, on i always think "well, it's great, but it absolutly need layer".

    The main idea would be to allow user to create multiple layers on the same slide and select the one he want to see on work on by some checkbox or something like that, re-arrange layers order, etc.

    All the interest of this would be to animate layers by using them like fragment…

    • Add More Effects, and allow IN & OUT effect per element

      some more effect ideas:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/ryw3ybkgv5fj646/new%20effects%20slides.png?dl=0

      Also, in and out effect would help to create more video like effects, similar to animated banners.
      samples: bannernow.com

      Similar, a timeline for slides/animations would be EPIC :)

      • Curved connector

        As in Google Slides, apart from the directed lines and arrows, it would be nice to have a curved and elbow connector.

            Added edit tools to improve accessibility compliance for web views and all exports options. Improve PDF export so content is not just an image or background image.

            • Oembed Link With Total Slides & postMessage With Current Slide Number In Event

              I am in the process of building an LMS that is capable of tracking progress for a variety of media types. I have found that many of the embedded iframes provided by companies that share media do not provide a simple solution for a developer to easily track progress of a client through the embedded content. Props to your team for using postMessage.

              First off, it would be incredible if slides.com could provide an oembed route (https://oembed.com/) so developers could easily lookup and embed public presentations from just a link to the presentation (aka https://slides.com/oembed?format=[json/jsonp/etc]&url=http://slides.com/news/make-better-presentations#/).

              In that,…

              • Alternative Payment Option

                I'm missing a smaller pricing tier.

                I rarely present anything (<3 / year), but if i do, it generally needs to be private.

                Asking $60/year for that is just plain too much.

                Maybe consider a Single Payment type Upgrade for ~$10 thats limited to ~1-3 simultaneous private Presentation?

                  • Support for font weights

                    Open Sans and Montserrat have thin and light weights that are beautifully designed. I was disappointed to find that Slides only supports one or two weights. Giving us the ability to edit font-weights from 100-900 would give Slides far more design flexibility without loading extra fonts.

                    • Add music/narration

                      While many users simply use slides as a background for their own real time speech, MANY of us would like to create slide presentations with background music and/or offline narration. "And/or" means loading the music and voice on separate tracks. Along with adding MUSIC (it's a greatly anticpated feature - trust me) would be the ability to change slides on command, not an "in every" choice, such as change slides every 10 seconds or every 3 seconds. As said better in another post, set showing time for each slide independently. Repeat: These are greatly anticipated features.

                          • Codepen integration

                            The code block is a great feature and I use it a lot. Same thing with the iframe block since it allows me to embed a codepen to the slide.
                            Perhaps even better would be to be able to send the code block's content directly to codepen via their API (https://blog.codepen.io/documentation/api/prefill/)
                            That or an even deeper integration of codepen would be nice.

                            • Allow navigating through slides with up and down arrow keys in presentation mode

                              Because many slide navigation devices come mapped to the up and down arrows instead of the page up and page down keys, users who don't want to use the app to control slides often end up needing to research a lot in order to find a remote that will work for them.

                              I'm one of those people, only problem is when I got my remote it turns out that it isn't actually mapped to page up and page down. If there were a simple configuration for "Advance slide key" and "Previous slide key" that maybe offered a limited set of…

                                    Since we use Google drive in our daily business most of our images (bitmap and vector) live there. It would be neat to have them directly embedded in slides without the need to download them first and them upload them later to slides.com.
                                    I guess the APIs for Google are already in place to build this feature.
