A Sway library to store, find and (re)use Sway templates and earlier used Sway cards.18 votes
Having > 1000 pictures in one onedrive folder, it's kinda impossible to find the ones I want to embed into a sway. So please add options as they are available in onedrive (list/thumbnails) and allow sorting by name, size, date (ascending & descending) and as in onedrive, allow storing the sort type. And maybe even add a filter for date, to limit display to a specific period.34 votes
You can now use the search bar to search the metadata of your OneDrive content to help find what you need! We’ll keep this idea open though to track actually creating filters like you describe. Thanks for the feedback!
When adding a link to Sway, add content/media from the site like Facebook or Twitter does when you post a link on their sites.18 votes
Thanks for letting us know what you would like to see in Sway :-)
The first thing I tried was uploading a 5MB image from shutterstock. It failed miserably.3 votes
Hmm…that’s interesting. You should have been able to upload a 5MB image, so you may be hitting a different issue. Were you uploading from your hard drive? What message did you get when the image failed to upload?
I would love to be able to include my photosynths, nokia refocus, nokia panorama, nokia cinemagraphs and blink cliplets to sway4 votes
Pinterest could be a great resource for images and optionally the content associated with the image.11 votes
Good idea. Thanks for the feedback :-)
I wanted to test how clever Sway is when you put bunch of photos so I picked one of my trips folder in OneDrive and have found out that I need to manually select all photos one by one.
It would be great to have a button for selecting all files in current folder.8 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! In the meantime, here’s something that might help: with a keyboard, you can use shift+select to select the last item in a folder after selecting the first to quickly select all items. After you’ve made some selections, a “clear selection” option is available.
Need robust paste from most common apps, e.g. when I paste from Office apps, I loose all formatting.47 votes
VBA or C# macro language to enable scenarios for automation, animation, interaction, and data sharing. The other Office products are not just tools -- they're amazing platforms for building customized tools. Sway is a great concept. Make it better with Macros.8 votes
Thanks for the feedback! We’re happy to hear that you can see great potential in Sway. :)
showing an industrial process to a costumer:
pointing in different part of a tool's photo grant access to different video, graph, quality report, certificates and other details about costs, performance ecc.
in the photo of a drill, pointing on the handle will show safety data, on the tip will show performance ecc.4 votes
Sounds like a cool interaction for pictures! Thanks for the suggestion.
Add Wikipedia and its sister projects (especially Commons for images and videos) as a media resource.
Moreover, this idea would go well together with support for an 'attribution page': http://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway-suggestion-box/suggestions/6543894-attribution-page-at-end-of-the-sway7 votes
We now pull Wikipedia articles into our suggested content in the Insert pane. Thanks for the feedback you’ve provided, and let us know if there’s anything else you’d like to see us do here by leaving a comment. :)
It'd be really nice if there were a way to see what the animations were going to look like without going into the full preview view (which you'd have to leave if you want to change the animations). It'd just be nice for exploring the different layouts quickly.1 vote
Noted. Thanks for the feedback! :)
I think that if each "Text" represents an idea, they should to presented one at a time (like an slide in powerpoint...)1 vote
We appreciate your feedback! We hope that we can help you express your editorial intent in the future when we add new features.
It will be great if you could integrate services like 500px.com and Flickr.om it is a great oppt to get all the photographers to create on Sway7 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We recently added flickr as an embed type! Make sure to let us know if there are any other types of embeds you find useful.
When finding a place that needs adjustment, it would be nice if going back to the Storyline meant already at the right place to edit.3 votes
There's OneDrive, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for sources in the media pane. I would also really like to be able to add pictures from Instagram! Maybe my own instagram account as well as being able to search for what people are hashtagging there.26 votes
Noted. Thanks for the feedback!
I would like to reference a full web page. Is that Possible?6 votes
Hi, thanks for using Sway! Just to be clear, are you asking to have a web page as a content type in Sway (similar to pictures, tweets, etc.)? That is not possible at this time, but we are always trying to make Sway better. Thanks for the feedback!
To be able to splitt lengthy imported word documents into shorter parts. And also to be able to insert pictures and other stuff inbetween text parts, and in the middle of the text1 vote
We can see why having a long document would be difficult. Out of curiosity…were there any types of dividers in your original Word documents, such as headings? If so, were they respected in a way that seemed reasonable to you?
Would you find it useful for a split card command to exist to help break text cards into smaller text cards?
Additionally, splitting text cards apart by inserting a different card between them has been implemented! Thanks for the feedback. :)
The possibility to share to Sway from as many other apps as possible. I would expect at least all Microsoft programs being able to share to Sway.6 votes
