  1. Copy and pasting whole slides from one Powtoon project to another within the same account.

    If there is a way to copy and past whole slides from project to another can someone let me know? If I have really great scene I want to insert into another project I have to recreate the whole thing all over again. Having the ability to copy and paste multiple slides at once would be really helpful.

        Hi there, unfortunately this video feature was causing some errors with published Powtoons, so we had to remove the feature whilst we work on it.
        We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

      • Collaboration for teams

        It must be possible for more than one person per account to access different powtoons on the account. At the moment we have to try to synchronise our access ourselves, We are on an agency account and keep logging each other out?

          • Allow multiple people to edit a powtoon at the same time

            It would be great if two or more people could edit a powtoon at the same time from different computers (kinda like google drive).

            • Create characters and backgrounds that represent manufacturing

              My company employs mostly manufacturing workers - assemblers, welders, logistics workers. I'm having trouble finding characters that represent my audience.

              • Folders for completed videos

                We have so many completed videos, and having them in a list from newest to oldest makes it difficult to find a specific one. If we were able to group completed or in-process videos somehow, that would excellent! Search by title would help as well. Thanks!

                    Cool Idea. At the moment, we are limited because all text in the same text box needs to be uniform colour , font etc. but we’ll see how we can change that!

                  • Simply add grey-haired versions of all metro & neighborhood characters for non-offensive elders that active seniors can relate to.

                    The elder caricatures in the more cartoony sets are not relatable and even offensive for baby boomers. Today's active seniors are a key demographic with wealth and influence that many businesses and nonprofits want to connect with. You do not need to add wrinkles, hunchbacks and frumpy clothes, if you merely switch to grey hair, all the characters in the non-grotesque sets like metro and neighborhood can look like active seniors. Please do this for all of the characters in those two sets, so we have ethnic diversity along with the age diversity - and when you finally add Asians…

                        • resize tween / animation

                          A really nice, subtle effect with images is when you can have them slowly grow and/or move on the screen. It is a trick to create movement with a static image. To either have a tweening for movement or size without having to build it in Flash would be nice. Something really simple where in addition to an entrance and exist animation, in between you can have a few simple options to transform the image in size, width or both.

                            Thanks for the feedback! we will look into an option of adding this!

                          • Add disabled characters, adults and children, wheelchair users would be good.

                            Hi, we are preparing a Powtoon on inclusive practice but we can't find any characters or images relating to disability, disabled children for example.

                              Thanks for the request. We get tons of request, for such a large range of images and animations, we just can’t do everything, as much as we wish we could. If there are more votes, it would help the cause!

                            • I would like to be able to share my powtoon with an additional collaborator.

                              When using Powtoon as an educational tool, it would be beneficial to be able to share your powtoon with another user.

                                      • disability needs to be included in character sets

                                        hi, excellent presentation service but i am suprised that you do not have any disabled characters? people in wheelchairs, with guide dogs, with long canes - visible disability (you will probably struggle to reflect learning disability in a meaningful way) are consumers, educators, learners and users so why not represent them in the characters?

                                        I wish to use the presentations for education in the disability sector but find nothing appropriate for people who may have a disability to relate to.
