How can we improve SlideProof?

Inserting content into template placeholders

While a template placeholder is selected - such as a photo/picture placeholder - and you want to insert a photo from your library straight into that placeholder on the page, you should be able to select the photo within your library and press 'insert', thereby pasting directly into that box. This should also apply to text box placeholders and text content available within your library.

    Thanks everyone, we are looking into this now.

    So this should automatically happen, when your current selection is a placeholder and you right-click “insert”?

    What should happen with pictures that are too large/don’t match the ratio?

        I would prefer a "cropped" image.

        In our PowerPoint Master template we have a "Frontpage" with a placeholder for an image - it would be nice if we were able to change the image without having to adjust the image inserted.

        For regular placeholders like Square/Rectangle or Circles, picture should automatically fit into the shape format so that that resize and ratio are kept.
        But when the placeholder is customized like in our Cover page, it should keep the standard PPT behavior , i.e the user has to determine the placement of the picture and adjust it.
        what about making a choice via a pop up windows?

        Agree!

        Automatically fitting/cropped images for placeholders - inserted directly from SlideProof

        The placeholder option would definitely boost the slide production productivity if an Image or Pictos libraries are managed with Slide Proof. Most of our users at Wavestone are waiting for this feature !
