1. ## easier to put in pictures

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.

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.

2. ## Copy individual slide between decks

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?

3. ## Page numbers on slides

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.

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!

4. ## Link to knowledgebase from editor

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?

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.

5. ## Give us an option to not preload a slide

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.

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.

6. ## Duplicate slides

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.

7. ## Enhanced performance of GIF files

… 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.

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.

8. ## Insert Video

We’ve added support for video! You can either upload a video from your file system or point to an external video URL.

Let us know if you have any feedback.

9. ## Slide collections/folders for organizing and easier private sharing

It is hard to organize a lot of slides, and share many private slides. It would be great to be able to make a collection or folder of slides (per class, for example) and share that collection with one shareable link, rather than each individual slide.

Being able to sort would also be good (even if it's alphabetical).

10. ## Custom autoplay timing for each slide

You can now customize the autoplay duration on a per-slide basis. This and a few other slide-specific options are available in the new “Slide Settings” menu. More info and examples here: https://slides.com/news/slide-settings/

11. ## Enable Full Speaker View on iOS

The main reason I want to use Slides is to use my iPad to both see and control a presentation on a remote computer. As things stand, the remote control replaces the full “speaker view” on iOS. This isn’t what I need. As it requires one to turn around to watch the screen content, defeating the purpose of using Slides.

My classrooms are equipped with a Windows PC plugged into a projector, not allowing for installation of any piece of software. I want to use that computer to project slides, controlled via an iPad, but I also want to see…

iPad users will now see the full speaker view, rather than the simplified mobile version of the page.

Let us know if you run into any problems with this.

13. ## iFrame not displaying content

I am placing an iframe into on of my slides and calling a URL outside of slid.es

url: party.wellhey.com/raffle.html

and all I get is an outline of where the iframe is, none of the content is displayed. I thought it may be my code on the page that is being displayed, so I plugged in Google and still nothing.

14. ## Speaker notes

Having a simple drop down comment box that rests below the slide might be a cool way to allow users to keep notes for each of their slides. Right now I'm writing my script either in a word document or "off screen" outside the visible scroll in the main container.

16. ## Math Equations

It took about ten minutes to fork reveal.js to add equation support via MathJax ( http://mathjax.org ). You only drop the MathJax javascript into the header and it automatically renders anything like $y=x^2$ as an equation in any number of different formats. No live demo, but see: https://github.com/rreusser/reveal.js

Makes a lot of sense to me particularly since it's so simple, but there are a number of choices that would need to be smoothed out like which equation syntax to use, which display format to use, and how an editor like rvl.io would balance WYSIWYG with equations that need rendering.

Edit:…

19. ## Link to another slide

Provide ability to link to another slide instead of just a website. I'd love to use this format for a portfolio but don't want to make others have to scroll through to find what they want.

You can link to another slide by changing the link “Target” from “Website” to a specific slide number.

We recommend naming any slides that you want to link to using the Slide Settings UI. That way you can more easily target and link to the correct slide.

20. ## Import slides

Just like we can "download" the content of a slide, it would be nice to be able to "upload" the content of a slide.
