  1. 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..

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Insert your own videos (from disk)

    there should be an area in insert where you can put your own videos in the slide, like the pictures.

  9. 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.

  11. Wrap text around images

    This is a very basic feature that is needed. Really surprised it is not included. Work arounds provided are not good options

  14. Embed videos from any online source

    enough already. I'm not going to use OneDrive for everything. Stop screwing around and allow us to embed videos from someplace other than onedrive or youtube.

  15. Embed Specific Slides of a Powerpoint

    Hi, I'm using One Drive to store my powerpoints which I then embed into my website. I'd like to be able to embed only specific slides of my powerpoint instead of the entire thing. Currently, the only way to do that is to make a bunch of separate powerpoints with 1 or 2 slides that I want to embed each, which makes everything cluttered.

  16. Add More Built-in Templates

    You did an awesome job Microsoft in creating this PowerPoint but maybe next don't keep plain as your template put a little design in it.

  18. Add Publisher as Online App

    I think that Office 365 needs to get Publisher! I use it quite often and school and when I come home to work on a project I've used Publisher on, I can never complete it! There may be a reason for not including it, but I personally think you should have it.

  19. Allow uncompressed pictures to be inserted

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

  20. Encode Embed URLs

    URLs generated for embedding slideshows should be URL encoded.

    All of the links I've seen contian "{" and "}" characters, which aren't safe URL characters according to RFC 3986.
