  2. Improve the Design Ideas Option

    It should add design ideas when you add more than one picture or when you have another layout. Every time when I change the layout or add more than one picture it doesn't give me any design idea and I have to do a lot of work just to make the slide to look good.

  3. Have an Option to remove controls from embed view

    Please provide an option in the PowerPoint Document to disable online viewer controls. We use PowerPoint to create online presentations that we'd like to share publicly, but we do not wish to give our viewers the functionality, or visual clutter, provided by the viewers controls. We'd also prefer to not offer download options in general.

  5. You can make a thing were you can go and choose anything you need for your powerpoint, Like ideas but something even better.

    Were you can like go on it and like choose really cool (real looking backgrounds) backgrounds, things that you can use on a PowerPoint. Like you'll need to have everything that people look up on ideas, except for bad things. Like on ideas I looked up " My brother Sam is Dead book" and a lot of cars pulled up on it. I really like ideas but I know that you'll will think of something even better.

  8. 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.

  10. Recorded slideshow playback speed adjustment

    I think many users would love to be able to increase or decrease the speed that a slideshow plays when it has audio and annotation. School lectures for example. I have a course where the professor has created lectures in PowerPoint with audio and annotations, but the pace he goes at is slower than my preference so I struggle to maintain focus. If I could adjust the playback speed (without having to separate the audio from the slideshow so that the illustrations are done in-sync with the audio) it would improve my study experience.

  11. Allow uncompressed pictures to be inserted

    Attached pictures to PowerPoint are compressed and low quality. Allow users to attach uncompressed pictures.

  12. Need to know ALL slides that use a particular master layout...

    When hovering over a master layout, PPT indicates which slide numbers use that layout--but only the first few. We really need to be able to determine somewhere ALL the slides that use a particular layout.

  13. 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

  17. Insert Picture from SharePoint corporate assets library

    You can insert picture from local storage and OneDrive, but not from SharePoint drives without mapping them in the file explorer.
    => Selecting a SharePoint Folder from which clipart pictures can be inserted directly into Poswerpoint Slides would be a nice ideoa

  18. allow for shapes to be rotated

    The desktop version of PowerPoint allows for shapes and pictures to be rotated to any desired orientation. This would be great to have in the online version as well.

  19. better quality options for PDF output

    It urgently needs more output quality in PDF output. I do a lot of projects with rendered images that all look nice in the Source PPT, but when I create the PDF, the beautiful gradients decay into ugly artifacts.
    Quite extremely the case, if a very reduced color number is present, the project e.g. was rendered only in the blue area and in shades of gray. Then the logos and fonts in the pictures are getting blurred.

    For projects with more colors this does not seem to be that serious. Just add a few options, you do not have to…
