I created an account, but cannot access beta features, nor download the app?
We are keeping the beta cohort really small at the moment, as there still are some bugs to iron out
in the app, and now and then we make breaking changes on the server. We have registered your
interest, please be patient, we will contact you when we are ready for the next group of beta
I am a paying subscriber to your existing PowerPoint template store, what should I do?
The current template store will continue to run as is for the moment at store.slidemagic.com
. The new template store contains
most of the slides all the slides of the old one already (in addition to many, many more new
slides). All new slides will be available as PowerPoint downloads as well. If you are an existing
paying subscriber, you will get priority in the beta testing program, please contact us if you are
interested in trying out the new store.
I am a beta tester, but my app says it is expired?
Beta app downloads work for roughly a month. Please log in to the site again to download the latest
version with new features, bug fixes, and stability improvements
Is the SlideMagic app compatible with PowerPoint?
Yes, while SlideMagic uses its own .magic file format, the app can export slides in .pptx format, so
you can integrate them in existing presentations, and/or share them with your colleagues. The other
way around is not possible. Because of its unique approach to slide layout, SlideMagic can not read
PowerPoint files, this is by design.
Do I need an active Internet connectionn to work in SlideMagic?
No, SlideMagic is a desktop app which works offline, so you can continue to edit your slides in
places with poor connectivity (during a flight for example). Obviously, the online template store
cannot be accessed when working offline, instead the app will offer a small selection of built-in
Is my data safe?
Absolutely, we adhere to best practice when it comes to storing your data, including encryption for
passwords. Note that SlideMagic is not using its own cloud storage for presentations (yet),
therefore you can save the .magic files anywhere you want (including on your own cloud platform),
pretty much the same as you would treat other office files.
When will you launch properly?
As soon as we have all glitches ironed out, and have set up the proper payment processing
I cannot find a specific slide layout?
Feel free to reach out to us with suggestions for new slides we should add to the template database.
We cannot handle all requests, but will do our best.
I cannot find a specific feature?
SlideMagic made a few big design decisions that should it make easier for the non-designer to create
professional slides. One example of this is that you can use only one accent color. We have thought
really hard and long about this feature set, and we would encourage you to try working around these
limitations which are put there by design. Hopefully soon, you will start to see the impact in the
quality of your designs. If you really feel strongly about a specific feature, please reach out to
to and will add it to the suggestion list.
