## I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

### There are two ways to get more votes:

• When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
• You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
• To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

1. ## Allow multiuser collaboration

Many times a presentation is a work of more than one person. Would be great to allow all of them to contribute to its edition.

2. ## Ability to rotate elements

It'd be great if there was an option to not only resize, but also rotate elements (eg images, text boxes etc.)

Vote

This has been added! Now you can grab any corner of a selected element to rotate it. The angle is displayed in the toolbar so that you can apply the same rotation to multiple elements or set a specific number.

Here’s a quick screen recording showing how it works: http://static.slid.es.s3.amazonaws.com/support/rotation.gif

3. ## 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).

This has been added!xx You can now select from multiple different aspect ratios in the presentation settings. It’s even possible to define your own custom resolution.

4. ## Allow image cropping

We’ve added support for image cropping! Select an image and look for the crop symbol in the sidebar to try it out. Here’s a quick screen recording showing it in action: https://static.slid.es/support/crop-image.mp4

We added a couple of new image options at the same time, including the ability to disable the enforced aspect ratio and resize an image freely.

Please let us know if you run into any errors and we’ll make sure to fix them.

5. ## Change transition effect per slide

Add the posibility to define a transition effect for certain slides which overrides the global one.

Vote

We’ve made it possible to change the transition effect for specific slides. 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/

6. ## Drag and drop to rearrange slides

The arrange mode gives an overview of the slides but the system for moving them was non-obvious to me and very cumbersome: moving a slide across the deck is requires as many clicks as there are slides!

I would rather drag-and-drop the slides, perhaps you could have a drag icon/handle.

We just rolled out the new arrange mode! The new version is entirely drag-and-drop based. Plus, we’ve made it possible to select and drag or delete multiple slides at once so that you can work faster.

Please let us know if you run into any issues and we’ll address them as soon as possible. Thanks!

7. ## 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.

8. ## _Easily_ copy individual slides between decks, even when you have a lot of decks and a lot of users. (Templating the deck is not enough)

We are a consultancy of 80 people. We would have to easily copy (or reuse) individual slides from _a lot_ of decks if Slides.com is to be a viable solution for us.

We’ve rolled out a refreshed slide template selector! It’s now possible for Team members to browse and insert slides from any of their colleagues internal decks.

This—combined with the existing ability to insert slides from your own decks—gives you convenient access to all the slides you need to quickly assemble new decks.

9. ## Animation effects for elements

Have you planned to add animation effects to the elements? It's the only thing missing to make your software even more awesome than it is and compete with Keynote. Cheers

10. ## 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!

11. ## Grouping Decks

Ability to create folders/groups of slides

12. ## Ability to add directed lines and arrows

I would love the ability to add simple lines with arrowheads to point from one element to another on my slides.

I am requesting this here because there really is no simple workaround. Users are forced to paste an image of a line with a 38° tilt and an arrowhead.

Of course, no line tool would be complete without dashed and dotted styles. Thank you for considering this suggestion.

13. ## Support for Tables

It would be great to have an option to add a table to a slide without manually writing the HTML

14. ## Inline math equations.

You would be able to specify inline math using \$ symbol, (just like in IPython notebook markdown). I'm really tired of putting spaces in my paragraphs to make room for symbols.

15. ## 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.

16. ## Ability to make a fragment disappear

The ability to make a fragment disappear.

We just made it possible to select from multiple different fragment styles. If you use the "Fade out style, content will be visible from the start and then disappear.

17. ## 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).

Paid accounts should be able to disable all Google Analytics (including slides.com’s) on publicly-shared presentations.

Personally, I do not want to expose the people who view my presentations to surveillance by Google/Alphabet, etc. and help them build their World Wide Web-wide panopticon (based on my own crawls, Google Analytics alone gives Google eyes on 64.1% of the web).

As I now use slides.com for my keynotes, I would like to promote your service. Not least because you have a lovely independent business that isn’t a surveillance capitalist. If you could add the feature to disable Google Analytics, I can do…

We have added a new “Do Not Track” setting which makes this possible. If you turn on the DNT setting, we stop tracking your activity AND the activity of people viewing your content to Google Analytics.

To enable it, visit the account settings page.

19. ## 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.

20. ## Video Background

Full screen scaled video embed with Javascript API keyboard controls to play/pause the video.

We’ve added support for video! Videos can be added in the background or as part of the slide content.

You can insert a video either by uploading it to our servers (100 MB max) or specifying an external URL.
