Slate has so much potential.

Here's what I'm using it for: https://slate.adobe.com/cp/ZgMx3/

I think that a few extra settings would make it brilliant... such as:

* The ability to set a from and to focal point
* Change window direction/swipe
* Change window height, and maybe width, but definitely height/depth
* Better/more photo sizing options
* Photo links, so instead of a normal link button you can make your own button with a photo that links somewhere
* integration with Adobe Muse, so you could potentially package and download your slate, open it and tweak it in muse and then reupload to your own website

That's my thoughts for now - I will keep badgering for these to be worked on hehe ;)

Hi Drew,

Can you share a bit more about what you would expect to happen with:

> Set a from and to focal point?
> Change window direction?

Also, with photo sizing options, are there examples you have in mind that you could share?

Thanks for the photo links plug. I bug the team about that regularly and need some more customer ammo to make it happen. :)

Hi Brian,

Thanks for replying!

I'll try and explain using my comic as an example as it might make a bit more sense!

> Set a from and to focal point?
Let's say I have a photo (comic panel) and on the left I have one person saying something and on the right side I have another person saying something... it would be cool if as you swipe down the focus goes from the left to the right before continuing down the slate (and reverse if you go back up).

So zoom options would also be handy now I think about it.


> Change window direction?
Instead of the window scrolling downwards (or upwards actually isn't it?!) as the reader scrolls down, the window reveals from either the left or the right before the page continues onwards.

Hope this makes sense, my brain is going a bit loopy this evening haha!

Looking forward to seeing how Slate develops, I think it's a great idea.

Ooh a slate reader app/native app would also be ace :)

Do Adobe still get people to test things out in products these days? I used to be a tester on the Ideas app and it was great fun seeing how that came along...

Cheers

Also 'fit screen' would be a helpful option, so the whole picture is in view no matter how tall it is...
