  2. ToDo: Make a sticky note.

    Have you ever wanted to note down something that you will do on the Power Point later, and you know that you'll forget what you need to do when you come back to do it? Well if so then vote me so that wont happen, and if there's anybody else who has already posted this idea then vote for them too.

  3. Background Removal for Images

    The desktop and Mac versions of Powerpoint have the tool to remove the background of an image, but the Online version does not have this tool. Why not add it? It is very easy to use, and very useful.

  5. Improve low-res images with advanced scaling approaches like waifu2x

    There are new scaling approaches like waifu2x that can do an unbelievably good job scale an image by 2-4x typically with little to no artifacts. I do it all the time using command-line or online tools for presentations. It'd be great if it was integrated in. It really improves the appearance of those low-res images/clipart your co-workers like to use.

  7. Create a "Share as Slideshow" link option (without full HTML of embed code)

    With the recent change to open share links in Edit mode, if you want to send to a recipient to just play a slideshow, the recipient must then click to play the deck after opening it.

    In many cases, we want to the recipient to jump right into the slideshow mode.

    Embed code is similar, but comes with the additional HTML for the iFrame. If we just want to send the link via Teams, Skype or email, this is overkill.

    We'd like the Share option in PowerPoint to have an option to "open as slideshow" or "share as slideshow," so…

  8. Add a format painter for tables.

    Add format painter for tables. This should include changing colours, text font and size, text spacing and border thickness.

  9. Add kiosk mode or allow Power Point show files to disable click/hit arrow key to next page. Or simply add an option to disable it.

    I'm trying to make a presentation that requires the user to click on a button that jumps them to different slides. For example, they may go from slide 3 to 6 or 3 to 9 depending on the button they select.

    Without disabling click and arrows to next slide this makes things difficult to offer my PowerPoint through online platforms.

    Thank you.

  10. Search Enhancement (highlighting)

    for powerpoints that allow you to search more than just one slide like "find" does, allowing you to easily find key terms for notes. make it so that it highlights what your looking for and so that it'll bring you to were it uses the term.

  11. Bring back scroll bar arrows at bottom right side of screen like Office 2011 for Mac

    It's very difficult to navigate large documents without scroll bars - especially for long timer Mac office users who have become accustomed to this built in too..

  13. Please support WEBM Movie Format with Transparent Background

    HTML5 canvas now supports WEBM movie format, which provides transparent background manageable through CSS.

    Adding full support for the WBEM file format to PowerPoint would not only allow the file content to remain standard, but would provide a method for adding many disconnected layers of composite animation to a slide, thereby producing slides with astonishing content. The only current way, in PowerPoint 2016, to accomplish this is to use Animated GIF, which are limited to 256 colors, and handled as images, so therefore do not have transport controls.

    Thanks in advance!

  15. Copy text from picture (like OneNote)

    This has already been developed for OneNote, it is called "Copy Text from Picture". You can paste a picture with text in any OneNote page, right click on it, and there is the option to Copy the text. Then it is available in the clipboard. It is the fastest simplest most efficient OCR I've ever used. It should be made available in PowerPoint, actually, any MS Office product out of the box

  17. Full Screen Edit Mode

    You should add a full screen option to PPT online to make it easier to use. By that I mean make the program itself go to the borders of the screen. It is really condensed at the moment and could use a bit of de-condensing

  18. Allow to "follow" a document from within the document

    Allow to "follow" a document from within the document without having to navigate a lot to get to the site library. Especially as with the new Sharepoint UI you often arrive at a result list without ellipsis and can't follow there either. Most of the time you have to look into the document to see its contents to decide on the "following"
