Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.
It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.
Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.868 votes
Please provide the capability to change the header of the new modern pages (i.e. the large banner graphic on which the title is sitting. It currently means page content starts half-way down the screen which isn't the best use of space.657 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We’ve recently released new Title area layout options for modern pages which will allow you to make the title area both much smaller, or showing a larger image. This does not impact the Site header above the pages. However we are also working on other options for different Site header sizes also.
It would be great to be able to target content by Audience (using global audiences and SharePoint groups) on the modern web parts just like we were able on the classic pages.

We’re working on this! The first web part we’re enabling it on is the News web part, followed by the highlighted content and events web parts. We’d love to hear about other audience targeting scenarios you’d like us to enable. Thanks!
Allow page authors to design page templates right in the Page Edit UI. Page edit would allow them to remove the Title Banner, Logo, left navigation, Edit link, New Link, Share Link, Search box and save the template for reuse.
Page Templates would support web parts and new developed custom JS controls for things like custom navigation controls.170 votesworking on it · AdminSharePoint Experiences Team (email@example.com, Microsoft SharePoint) responded
We are working on a solution to save a modern page as a page template. This list of available templates will be shown to users when they click New > Page or New > News. It will include some out of the box templates from Microsoft and any templates saved to the site.
This does not affect the Site header, navigation, search box, command bar, or other site elements.
There is too little control of a Modern Page. You can't control text size and coloring, you have limited format control, and most of all you can't *edit source*. I used this to drop in things like Image Maps or other HTML that there was no way to add in.133 votes
We have added options to the rich text editor to change the color and size of text on the page already.
We are working right now to enable on-page anchors.
We won’t be adding a way to edit page source, nor embed arbitrary HTML or tags like in the previous content or script editor web parts.
Need to have comments and likes for SharePoint News52 votes
I see these pages have a "Promoted State" and "FirstPublishedDate" that are used to determine if a page should be shown as News, but these properties cannot be changed. I want to be able to take an existing site page, and publish it as News.
Alternatively, you could let me publish news to a library separate from the site pages so I'm not cluttering my wiki page library.42 votes
