What’s New?

By Nat Robinson on April 17, 2008

This week we’ve been working on some very important fixes and new functionality. Many of you have asked for these features and we think you’re going to like them:

PowerPoint Import

Has improved in both accuracy and speed with greater support for Windows fonts. Import your latest PowerPoint today and put it to work in SlideRocket.


The ever handy undo makes it’s debut performance in SlideRocket. Making a quick revision is now part of the SlideRocket feature set. Just hit CTRL-Z (CMND-Z for Mac) and get back to where you started.


Working with tables has increased in stability and usability with changes to selection, alignment and formatting. Create a comparison chart, a pricing matrix and try binding your table to a Google Spreadsheet.

Slide Navigation Pane

A quick fix to quick clicks. Clicking quickly through slides in the slide navigation pane was causing data loss or odd resizing, now you can click as fast as you like!

Snow Plug-in

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow with the new SlideRocket Snow Plug-in. Try out the new plug-in and see how many different kinds of snow you can make. By tweaking the various plug-in properties you can go beyond snow and make all kinds of interesting motion backgrounds too. Who said presentations can’t be fun?

We’re doing a lot of bug fixing and smoothing based on your comments and feedback. Please keep them coming and be sure to check out the new and improved feature set.

    Hi team at SlideRocket,

    I requested an invite a while ago and haven’t received one as yet. I’m hanging out for one – I have to present at a major conference here in Australia on May 12th (Will Richardson is the keynote speaker) and I’d love to use SlideRocket to make the presentation. Any chance of an invite??

    I’m just starting a video to be entered in a contest next week. SlideRocket will help me win!

    Besides, you know you need more women on the beta!

    Looking forward to testing SlideRocket…. Thanks!

    I am very interested in SlideRocket (nice work). We are a multimedia/web app company that creates cd-roms, kiosk interface etc. One of are new clients is looking to advance past powerpoint presentations but require the level of easy editing PP can give them that flash swf/xml cant(on budget). We were looking at building a flex/flash10 presentation system that allowed the client to do editing to the presentation a lot like slideRocket but offline. We would suggest sliderocket as a platform but they require a navigation/menu system and multiple levels of content structure (more multimedia like and less slide style).

    Is there a way you can add a navigation layer to slideRocket that would allow the creation of a navigation that would update as screens are added/deleted, sub content levels and links to screens when selected? Maybe something that can be custom skinned or created in flash and imported.I think slideRocket would be a even better presentation tool with a bit more navigation options pushing slightly more towards multimedia presentations. Big ask so probably cant be done for this client but maybe others.
