  1. Copy and paste from OneNote to PowerPoint. OneNote not like OneNote2016

    I draw some ink stuff in OneNote or OneNote2016 that I want to transfert to PowerPoint:

    If I copy from OneNote2016, it is pasted as an Ink item in PowerPoint and then have access to Format Ink menu. It is the same Ink feature as if it where created in PowerPoint.
    If I copy from OneNote, it is pasted as a dumb Image in PowerPoint and I loose the Ink menu and all transparencies related features. Really not funny to work with when you try to superpose many Ink features.
    Both OneNote are taking the Ink from the same source…

  2. Improve automatic layout on slide resize

    Widescreen, standard etc. work great but after customizing the slide to my own dimensions, a text box or table etc. would give trouble fitting.

  3. Provide a way for users to hear embedded audio in a PowerPoint created in the desktop application.

  4. I am looking to put "duplicate" where I can find it easier.

    I want to be able to keep an existing packet and duplicate then rename easier. Most times I have to copy and the original packet is lost.

  5. Video editing tools

    Imovie is honestly incredible, it helps with school work when we have to make videos. However, it's really frustrating when I have to go to the library because I dont have a macbook.

  7. Align across slides

    Allow positioning of objects on slide. Can't position one object on one slide, and a second object in the same spot on the second slide.

  8. PowerPoint for the web does not understand how to print a slide 0.

    PowerPoint for the web does not understand how to print a slide numbered 0 in your pptx. either prevent the client software from numbering the slide 0 or make the web version understand it when you go to print.

  9. Dead or lock Slide for Interactive Presentations

    PowerPoint is heavily used for Interactive and navigated presentations. But while using on Microsoft Surface if the user doesn't click the right hit area of the button (active button) the slide moves to the next or previous as per the gesture or as per the movement. If we introduce Dead or lock screen, here if by mistake the user clicks the stage, there is no action and the user will not Mess with the interactive and still remains on same slide until he actions the right button.

  12. Intelligent color picker

    Sometimes it is hard to find a font color that shows up with your background. I feel like it would be nice if there were suggestions .

  14. Using CSS Web Fonts for fonts not necessarily available on all systems

    Some fonts are not installed on all systems (e.g. Windings). Thus, some glyphs are displayed as boxes containing their codepoint.
    Web fonts seem to be supported by 97% of all user agents recently used (see https://caniuse.com/#search=web%20font)

    Download works as intended because of PDF font embedding.

  15. Always open documents in a new tab

    Main problem is managing the files. When you open a ppt, you can't easily go back to file list and open another file. If you go back, you lose your open ppt. You should open documents in separate tab. That way it's way easier to go back and forth between documents and file list.

  18. Edit points in shape and connectors

    Depending on how much space exists between the shapes, some curved connectors are forced into s-curves. This does not look nice. User should be able to override that feature.

  19. Don't show insert icon placeholder for non-subscribers

    In Master view, add option to placeholder for icons for all 360 users. It can be greyed out or not visible for non-360 users. Its hard to set a template without icon placeholders

  20. Add text to lines

    Lines in powerpoint are connectors and can be attached to objects, but you can't add text to it. Adding text to lines would make it versatile and wouldn't hurt any existing functionality, being completely "opt-in".


    I'm IT consultant and I make use of Powerpoint almost every day to draw diagrams to show customers ideas and plans. Powerpoint isn't the best tool for this kind of diagrams, surely, but is the tool of choice because of it pervasiveness.

    For that reason, a few abilities like adding text to lines would really make my job easier.
