  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. Shape Dimension Options

    There should be a way to get exact dimensions of shapes so you can make them the right proportions in the slide like in indesign.

  7. 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..

  8. I think it could be very useful if you give more background choices

    i think it would be better if you post more backgrounds cause more student will enjoy it more in their presentation homework.Like me

  9. I need the ability to provide a direct download link for office online documents

    When sending a link to an office online document via email, there should be a way to have that link autodownload the file rather than open it for editing in office online. This will enable easy sharing of documents that must be housed on a sharepoint online site but when online editing is not optimal (like macro-enabled excel documents)

  10. Set Default Zoom for better templates

    When setting up a template which has instructions around the slide - as you can't set the default zoom it opens up and then users wouldnt be able to see the hints / tips guidance text you have wrote. i have to manually set it to 100% - it's opening at 113%

  11. Allow rotation of notes printout orientation for portrait orientation.

    When you print a notes page from PPO, you can only get slides on top, notes below, in landscape orientation. I would like portrait notes pages, with the slides on the left, notes on the right, like you can do with the desktop application.

  15. Make the Textbox boarder thicker for easier Shape Selection

    We can have a thicker line one the text boxes that goes away during the slide show and so it will be easier to click a text box.

  17. Enable Slide Show capability in the Teams PowerPoint Viewer

    Enable the ability to view a PowerPoint Slide Show in the Teams PP View. I have created a PP presentation in PP O365 and loaded a correctly working version to Teams. When my team members go out to view it, it displays but all the animations dump in at once on the first click and the effect is gone. If it isn't going to display as intended and saved why even have the viewer?

  18. Slide Show view (button) missing in the new PowerPoint Online Preview view

    In Office 365 first release, PowerPoint Online has a new Preview view when opening presentations from SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business. That is OK, but there seems to be no way of starting the slide show view (as in presenting the slides for an audience). It does not seem logical that one needs to open the presentation in edit mode to be able to present it. Of course one could go through the slides in the preview as well, but it is clearly not the same as the slide show view (in PowerPoint Online, when in edit mode).

  19. 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.

  20. 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..
