Insert Slide Numbers

There is a support article for slide numbers saying that the supported way to do slide numbers is to make them manually. Support for this, even if it's as basic as the support in Google Slides, would be very useful.

    Parece que 60 votos son pocos comparado con millones de usuarios pero es absurdo que en la version de escritorio sea una opcion y la version en linea no la tengan. ¿Será que es verdaderamente dificil para sus programadores?

    please add automatic slide numbers (very common to work on PPT online, and very common to need slide numbers. would love to have both)

    Add the ability to edit existing footers. Page numbering is correct in a deck I created in PowerPoint and editted in PowerPoint Online. I can't however edit a footer text box.

    It is very ugly to put in slide numbers. Make it easier please, like in the past!!! Thank you!

    Powerpoint needs the option of automatic slide numbers. It is especially helpful for lengthy presentations with multiple presenters.

    I don't understand why such a basic function was not included at the original design phase.
    To be able to refer to slide numbers in hand-outs or when instructing students is essential and to have to manually number / date slides then copy across slides is a waste of time for tutors and students alike.

    need to have the automatic slide numbering and it also should include "page x of xx"
