  1. add "Find and Replace" capability throughout presentation

    The online editor would be much more powerful if I could find and replace throughout the whole presentation. Of course regular expressions would also be nice but that is not even necessary.

    The effort to export to html and do it there and re-import is quite tedious.

    Right now I'd pay for this feature.

  2. Make buttons that let user jump to specified slides (e.g. to choose your way through an algorithm)

    Sometimes you want to show different pathways through an algorithm, then it would be helpful if presenter and/or user could click on a "button", that triggers the next slide depending on the choice:
    e.g. Slide 1 with Option A, B and C, sends you to Slide 2,3 or 3.

  3. Add variables for creation date and presentation title in HTML

    Add the ability for putting the {{creation.date}} and {{presentation.title}} into custom themes

    Very useful for header and footers in presentations that need to be exported.

  5. Allow users to choose the slide that appears for a deck in the profile page instead of using the first one.

    When duplicating a deck the "icon" of the deck that appears in the profile page appears to be the icon of the duplicated deck and this never changes. A duplicated deck should either inherit the first slide as it's icon after it's been edited. Or it should allow me to choose which slide appears as the icon in the profile page.

  10. Add JSX support

    Javascript syntax highlighting doesn't work with JSX at all - className gets all-lowercased, for example, which is very confusing because it's case sensitive.

  11. 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.

  12. 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,…

  13. 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 :)

  14. 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…

  15. Fixed blocks that persist across multiple pages

    Ability to create fixed content blocks that can persist across multiple pages and aren't effected by transitions.

    This would allow the users to create a custom navigation layer on top of the presentation.

  16. Recognising and integrating links automatically when importing an PDF into slides

    Current Status (correct me if I'm wrong): If you're importing a PDF it will be placed as an background image, which is pretty cool, since you can add more content if you want ... but all placed links won't be linked anymore. To fix this it's possible to put transparent boxes on top and add the link. But if I have to reimport the PDF because of some changes I have to do all of this again.

    Feature: It would be so cool to automatically add the links when importing.

  18. allow inline math within tables

    Slides allows inline math with Latex by enclosing text with, for example, ( and ). But for text within tables, these delimiters don't work. It would be great to be able to include mathematical symbols within tables easily.

  19. Allow specifying exact image scaling factors

    When displaying multiple images on a single slide, sometimes it is important to show them at the same, but enlarged (or reduced) scale. If the images have different width/height originally, then it is difficult to resize them manually and keep the same resolution.

    E.g. I have multiple snippets of terminal window screenshots I want to place on the same slide, and all of them have different width/height, but if I scale them to different amounts, that will result in different text sizes and will look messy. Doing that by hand is difficult and tiresome.

    As a solution, provide a way…

  20. Edit snippets *after* adding to slide.

    After a snippet is added to the slide, allow us to edit the snippet options in the sidebar when snippet is selected.

    This would allow us to position snippets where we'd like them within templates for users to edit info later.
