Would there be a way to save a Sway offline? Many conferences have little or no dependable wireless, which is also true for many schools. Offline mode would be helpful. I'm not sure if it can be done since it is dynamically rendering to different device types, but a "PDF" like snapshot mode would be helpful.1,145 votes
Sometimes I´d like to share ideas with people around the globe (especially in my professional life). So it would be great to have the chance to add textboxes in different languages and a toogle-switch within my sway.74 votes
Thanks for bringing this up. We appreciate the thoughts and suggestions.
Just to clarify… are you saying that you want to use Remix, but limit which structure it will change your sway into? (Essentially, cycling through the different styles without varying the structure.)
The initial display of a Sway takes quite long time to display (as compared to a conventional web page)
Please improve Sway initial display start-up time. Especially on mobile devices with less CPU power. Some sort of server caching for the initial page view would be really appreciated.24 votes
Would be nice to see some "traditional" layout tools such as tables or text justification options to further help swayers(?) design. Thanks!
Additionally, it would be really awesome if we could edit the text blocks differently. Like have one be one font size, whereas another is a different color.

Copy/Paste without the security message
Drag and drop the structure in the preview

Ability to insert 3D models. One way is with 3D PDFs. Maybe there are HTML versions that could be embedded.1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion!
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!
More of a question than an idea. When we insert a YouTube video, the thumbnail looks blurry. Is Sway grabbing the custom thumbnail presented by YouTube, or finding a random frame to use in the video as the thumbnail?12 votes
Sway is grabbing the thumbnail provided by YouTube. Are you able to provide a screenshot of the issue you’re experiencing?
I have my Sway layout right now going from left to right, and I can use the little scroller in the middle of my mouse to easily browse through the photos. However, for those without one of the scrollers on their mouse, or not knowing they can use that to view the images, the < and > buttons in the lower right should be a little bigger (hey, I know how it works but lots of people are a bit slower), and I also wish they would respond a bit quicker when you do click on them, as there is a lot to scroll through (perhaps leaving your mouse clicked down will keep it scrolling automatically and will stop when you release).

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.
It would be great to have a bit more control on text elements, like when hovering or selecting a text element, have it change color, go bold or italicize...You could also do this with photos, like pop up photo credits on hover...2 votes
Great suggestion! This would definitely make Sways more dynamic and engaging.
Accordion 3-tabs that allow you to create content that you can highlight based on selections.7 votes
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.11 votes
Is pen support added? I am thinking at Surface users like me :-)14 votes
It would be great if Sway offered an API.
I would LOVE to have tools to make templates or styles and give them out or at least edit my own sways in an advanced mode.275 votes
Interesting. Ok- if Sway offered an API what would you love for it to do and what would you expect to do with it?

I think a phenomenal slogan for SWAY would be "Share What Animates You."
Captures the animation aspect and the social aspect of SWAY.3 votes
That’s creative! Thanks for the suggestion. :) We’re currently using “Reimagine the way your ideas come to life.”
It would be great if the user could set a custom background (e.g. a photo or color) which is always shown as the background. Text and other content in a Sway would appear in front of this background.63 votes
I have done many presentations with PowerPoint and in my experience, people need clear structures to understand the content. I believe that e.g. dividing lines between the sections could make the structure (especially in the Panorama Layout) more understandable. That way viewers would know immediately when the next section begins and what belongs to what.14 votes
Good suggestion! We really appreciate the context you helped set in your suggestion because it helps us better understand how to make Sway better for you and our other users. Keep it coming! :)
I added a caption to a photo, but it looks jarring and out of place because the text style is different than other blocks of text in my Sway.2 votes
Hi Susan, can you provide an example of the style you are using?
I'd like to have images optionally linkable so viewers can click on them to go to other pages I want to direct them to. Somewhat like Pinterest, I guess.174 votes
