  2. Please, please, please add the button for fomatting a cell's background color to the simplified ribbon. Have to switch to pwpt constantly.

    I'm constantly updating shared management reports with RAG (Red, Amber Green) status boxes. It is impossible to change the background color of a cell in a table using Powerpoint online - you have to switch to Powerpoint and then save the deck back to sharepoint. Please add the shape fill button to the quick edit context menu so we can change the background color of a cell in poweroint online.

    We have addressed the bug that showed the fill button as disabled on the home tab. You can change the color of a table cell background from the home tab, or from the “Table” menu when the table is selected. Please let us know if you continue to experience issues with this. Thank you for using PowerPoint!

  3. Please include the Alignment tools.

    The alignment tools are non-existent in Sharepoint. They are highly useful. Please include them.

  4. Implement the 'Selection' pane

    I work in the Accessibility field. One of the things that is difficult to deal with is the focus order when using TAB to navigate the content of a slide. The desktop version of PowerPoint has a pane called the 'Selection' pane. This pane allows users to change the order of objects/content within a slide in relation to each other, as well as changes the focus order. The 'Selection' pane should be implemented to PowerPoint Online. This will allow users of PowerPoint Online to specify the focus order of the content they are creating, creating a better experience for keyboard/screen…

  6. Transitions

    Although we have forward transitions they work the same way when flicking back can we please have a tool that will help us reverse them when the page is reversed either as an automatic setting or as a setting we can input ourselves.

    We have added support for more transitions in PowerPoint for the web, including making them play in reverse when going back a slide. If you have specific examples of cases where this does not work, please create a new suggestion with more details. Thank you for using PowerPoint!

  11. page curl transition : option to reverse transitions when going backward

    The page curl (and other similar transitions) should be reversed when linking to previous slides, or just going backward. It's confusing if the pages turn the same way regardless or going forward/backward. It only currently works if you use your left/right cursor keys. It would be great if these could be intuitive and curl to the left when going forward and to the right when curling backward. Or maybe just add a checkbox that says "reverse transitions when scrolling backward"

  13. Insert header and footer

    Since I want to work together with other people I use PowerPoint Online. I ran in to a problem with headers and footers on the slides. According to the help you need to copy a textbox onto each slide.
    Why isn't the offline functionality integrated with PowerPoint Online

  14. Add the 'highlight' feature

    Hi. I am currently supposed to document misspellings and broken links on a website. Would be alot easier, to do, and understand for the guy whos supposed to correct the mistakes.

    I need the highlight feature, to highlight words/buttons on screenshots. And we are multiple people editing the same PPT, so i can't use the desktop version.

    Hope you will be able to add this feature soon.

    Thank you,
    Patrick

  15. Checking out files from within Teams

    I would be very convenient to have the possibility to checkout files directly from Teams, when files are in a SharePoint folder.

  16. embed to other websites without "download copy" button

    embed to other websites without "download copy" button

    currently anyone can download a copy of the presentation.
    for privacy reasons, there should be an option to remove the "download copy" button when embedding on other websites with iframe code

  18. Add an auto citation system that will automatically cite pictures inserted from bing.

    IF you were to insert a picture from bing, it would have already gathered the information for a proper citation and is automatically printed below the picture

  20. I could not find the "find" or "search" button in the "Simplified Ribbon"

    I could not find the "find" or "search" button in the "Simplified Ribbon", so either it should be easier to find or it should be added.
