  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.).

  4. Take notes in slideshow or reading view

    I believe you should be able to take notes on the side while watching the power point without taking it out of slideshow

  5. Get Link for comment only

    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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Enable support for "Last slide viewed" target for hyperlinks

    Add support for a shape to be clicked and send you back to the last slide you were looking at.

  12. Clear formatting support

    They should be an easy way to erase formatting like in the full fledged PowerPoint.

  13. Copy text from viewer (aka, preview mode)

    I have shared a presentation with some co workers. When they view the presentation they need the ability to select and copy text from a slide. However, when they click the slide to make a selection it changes to the next slide.

  14. Import Word into Powerpoint

    You've created Sway which takes too long. Powerpoint can do the same thing if you would allow the word doc to be copied into poperpoint and let the user create the slides from the document.

  16. Notes master

    I have to adjust my settings/features every time I move from one slide to the next. For example when taking notes, every time i go to the next slide I have to choose the bullet point format before writing.

  17. Issue with PPTX shared in O365 not printing handouts correctly

    Several of our staff try to print the handout view on MAC and PC and it is shrinking the size from the typical setting whether we choose 3 slides to a page or more, all settings display almost 75% smaller. We can't find any settings to return it to standard size or determine why some PPTX do this while others don't.

  19. svg pictures are changed after powerpoint file is reopened

    If the svg file includes multilines with long numbers (such as coordinates with 7 numbers with three digits), the multilines are somehow moved after the Powerpoint is relaunced (you must close all opened powerpoint files). Short multilines with only one vertex are drawn correctly though..
