While there has been significant improvements in the Presentations tool over the last couple of years, we’d like to see other capabilities similar to what’s offered in PowerPoint. Maybe these suggestions are already documented but I'll risk offering them up again.
- Ability to convert slides to a new template / format. Company’s often rebrand during acquisitions, new strategy rollouts, etc. Those often result in new corporate standards for Presentations for both internal and external use. PowerPoint makes it easy to drag and drop slides from one presentation to another with the option of retaining the original template/style or converting to the new template. The conversion is not perfect, but’s it’s often very good. Our company is converting to a template with new backgrounds, fonts, colors, etc. We have Wdesk Presentations with dozens, if not hundreds of links that we use on a quarterly basis and I’ve yet to find an easy way to convert those.
- PowerPoint templates allow you to place text objects on a template slide with a default location, font type, size, and color. When using that template the user then clicks on the object and just starts typing. They can change any of those attributes if desired/needed but they are initially presented with the proper defaults. It would be great if Wdesk Presentations slide layouts allowed setting default text boxes and attributes the way PowerPoint does in their templates.
Thanks for your consideration,
