  1. Manual Option To Add Font, Color, Background, Theme, etc

    I had moments ago described an issue with building a Sway. When the text and graphics are put together it's all entirely random. There needs to be consistency and documentation to this process. THIS IS NOT THE SAME ISSUE.

    When creating a Sway not only are the options limited (right side) but what is available I find utterly confusing. This could be organized far better such as picks: Select - background, font, color, whatever... The one click option to change is like everything else in the app totally random so I am forever clicking. Usually I end up liking a…

    Hi.

    It would be great if you can align the text like in Word. Aligment options like justify or align to the right.

    Thanks.

  5. Text Box Use Entire Screen in Vertical Style

    Currently, the text boxes only use 2/3 of the screen, even though images with even moderate focus cross the entire screen. It looks unprofessional and puts an unnecessary limit on how much text I can have show below an image. Is there a way to extend the text box to match the length that an image can take on screen?

  6. More fonts for specific storytelling themes

    Wider selection of fonts, especially "historic" fonts e.g. JSL Ancients/Apocrypha, and also transport fonts like Johnston100 (London tube font), NY Subway or ability to upload font files for my account

    For guidance as to range of impactful fonts that would be desirable, please consult "The non-designers design book" and the "The non-designers presentation book" both by Robin WIlliams.

  7. Enhance sway layouts

    Enhance Sway's layouts by taking ideas from "The non-designers design book" and the "The non-designers presentation book" both by Robin WIlliams. This may need a few more alignment features for text on cards

  11. print with design

    I'd love it if the Sway would print and export with the design. I love that you can change fonts/colors/etc in the actual sway, but when it exports it still has the original formatting which is sometimes inconsistent if multiple files were uploaded.

  12. Fonts

    We need more of a font selection in sway. The company that I work for
    has a standard font like the Maurea font family or the Arial font family.

  14. Custom Fonts and Transitions in Sway

    I found a Sway application that had a GUI somewhat like PowerPoint, where you can use the fonts that are on your PC and transitions. However, when I downloaded it, it seemed like an exact copy of the Sway that is on the internet. Can this be implemented, and if yes then when?

  15. Overlay Color on Backgrounds

    Backgrounds can sometimes overpower the text that's on top of them. It'd be useful to have a color overlay option (much like many websites use) so the image can be lightened or darkened with an alpha layer and tinted with the HEX or RGB overlay color.

  16. Change position of Logo

    It would be great if there was a setting for the logo to be in one of say 10 positions. Currently in my presentation I insert a logo and it's right in the lower middle of the header image which goes over part of the focus point. Would be great if we had the option of top right, bottom right, middle right, middle, top middle, bottom middle, left top, left middle, left bottom.

  17. Hyperlink Images

    Hej
    I'd love to create a simple landing page with various offers. Instead of a link-list to the details I would like to use images/icons that the user can click to navigate to another sway or service.

    Please just allow to change the navigation target from clicking on an image to either "view in fullscreen" as it is default now, or "navigate to: URL/Sway", so we can use images as hyperlinks.

    Thanks
