Hi everyone!

 

My name is Amnon Govrin. I'm a program manager on the Sway team. I've been in Sway for 8 months now, at Microsoft for about 4.5 years and before that wrote code and managed development teams in a few other companies. At Sway I am focusing on the end result - output. My goal is to make Sway styles and layout great for your needs and make your audience engaged and delighted by the information you want to give them.

 

The Sway team is excited every day to see who and how Sway is used and we know there are many things that could or would make it better.

 

I look forward for an interesting discussion and learning from you our users.

@Amnon GovrinI am in sway right now, trying to design my first professional sway (rather than a few earlier play with the layout versions.)  I have to say it is the styles tabs are the most frustrating aspect of any microsoft program that i have ever used  i need a consitant font color on all of my "slides" throughout the entire presentation, ideally in yelllow so they stand out on my images.  I don't have the option to be consistancy, the program keeps trying to change some to white.  nor am i am able to set a specific color.  i am frustrated and so disapointed.  This is the first time I have been able to get our firm to consider using the program, and I know that they won't want to use it for anything again because of how it looks. 

 

@Amnon Govrinand it keeps timing me out, so i have to log back in every 30 or so minutes.

 

@agpare Sorry you're having trouble with Sway. I will make sure the product team responds to your post.
