  2. When aligning multiple objects, allow to user to select which object to align to. (e.g. align all objects to the first selected object)

    For example, if I have 3 objects that I want to align to. Right now the align tools, does not allow the user to specify which object to align to. In Keynote, I think you can do this by select the object you want to align to first, and all others will be aligning to this one.

  3. Storyboard support from Visual Studio

    Now a days one can create nice story board with Visual Studio (2013 or later) or the Team Foundation Server Standalone Office Integration 2015 (free),.
    this will allow to create nice story board.
    Many people are using MAC machines and they highly dependednt on online office word, power point etc.
    If this function can be added to Power Point online it wil be very useful

  5. Add WordArt

    WordArt has been a staple in Microsoft Office and appears in every iteration of Office at least since 2000, but oddly doesn't appear in Office Online. Why? Please put it back!

  8. Presentation Analytics

    PowerPoint Online Tracking and Analytics Capabilities

    I would love to share a PowerPoint Document with a client and be able to answer a few questions right off the bat like, did they open it? How long did they stay on a specific slide? Did they download it, print it or share it forward? We can do this starting with PowerPoint Online and ultimately with the entire Suite as a whole.

    We can use this information to improve how we present to them in the future.

  9. Support custom fonts

    Provide the ability to use different type (fonts). Our corporate deck does not use standard typefaces. There should be a way to use different typefaces in the online tools.

  11. Support More Slide Themes

    Add more themes to be able to make your PowerPoint look better. Even my PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2010 has more themes than PowerPoint Online. That's pretty bad.

  12. Add and expiry date so presentations can't be used after that date

    It would be great to be able to set a date that presentation cannot be view after - effectively a time bomb

  13. Right-click to SAVE specific graphic image as .PNG or .JPG or .SVG

    This is an extremely useful feature when using PowerPoint to mash-up and label images for use in another application (e.g. making online learning objects within a LMS).

  14. Comment only permissions

    Now we have two types of links first for "view only" and second for "edit".
    It is useful to create "comment only" link, like in google drive.
    So someone with this link can view file, can't edit, but can comment file throw default review and comments options.

  15. Add more SmartArts

    One day I wanted to make my own family tree using SmartArt, but I couldn't add anymore boxes with lines to show who was related to who. I would also like if you could add a title (that you can delete) along with the text, so I could say the person's name and in the text, I could put their information in it (birth, education, relation to me, etc.).

  16. Support Ruler and Guidelines

    It is helpful to have guidelines and ruler as like the desktop to ensure text/images/shapes are centered correctly

  17. Hand-drawing animation

    Animate object to show outline of an object being drawn. Similar concept to whiteboarding (refer to VideoScribe)

  18. Add more communication to WOPI Power Point postMessage protocol

    Currently, PowerPoint Online embedded through WOPI offers really small amount of communication between iframe and main sirte where iframe is embedded. It would be really good that js postMessage from WOPI PowerPoint iframe sends messages like 'UICurrentSlide', 'UIFullScreen', and receives messages lie 'GoNextSlide', 'GoPreviousSlide', 'StartPresentation', 'GoFullScreen' and similar. I think this would greatly improve embedding PowerPoint Online into other sites.

  19. Import/Export Keynote presentations

    Allow importing/exporting of Keynote presentations into PowerPoint. Keynote has done this for years. It would be nice if it was reciprocal.

  20. Add "Delete" to the right-click menu.

    Because cut, paste and copy are already in the menu, but delete isn't. I just think it would be a good idea.
