  1. layers system

    hello,
    we should have a layers system similar to that in Adobe products, so I can copy the layer and paste it easily or even more than that (colors, fill, opacity)

  3. Have a deemphasize animation available for paragraphs in an object.

    It would seem that an object can only have only one animation associated with it. Libra Office's Impress allows having a separate enter and exit animation on a per paragraph basis, for the same object.

    Example:

    TextBox contents:

    - point 1
    - point 2
    - point 3

    I would like it such that point 1 would first appear, then before showing point 2, I would like it to deemphasize point 1 by some means, like colour, size, weight, transparency, whatever. The same would go for when showing point 3.

    I have tried this with Impress using colour with success, and…

  4. Text style support

    When I pick red as the color I want to emphasize my text, it should stay there as the emphasis. I do not want to have to pick the same color every time.

  5. Morph working unexpectedly on slides with animations

    If there are "entrance" type animations on a slide that has Morph applied to it, while transitioning to that slide, all objects appear first as part of the transition, even those that have animations set up, and when the transition ends, those objects suddenly disappear.
    It is a very unpleasant experience and interrupts the flow of the transition.
    This has been a problem since the introduction of Morph in PowerPoint Online. Please fix it.

    Also, it would be nice if PowerPoint Online supported the Slide/Section/Summary Zoom feature, at least in presentations that were made in the desktop client and already…

  13. Request edit access from read-only view

    Too often, files are shared over OneDrive with Read Only access, generally this is because they forgot to check the 'Edit Access' box when sharing - it would be great to have a button that simply requests Edit access so the sharer can quickly approve without having to email or call the original document sharer.

  14. Support undo for the lifetime of the document

    If someone logs out by accident or they liked their old idea better after they have logged out this will help to recover their old work

  15. General Comment Improvements for Robust Collaboration

    There are several features missing from comments in powerpoint that negatively impact collaboration. These are present in gSuite and have a significant impact on the working model. Without these (and preferably universally applied across the office suite) you guys are going to continue lagging on the collaboration front.

    1) Ability to resolve comments once completed (right now you have to delete them and then lose the record of their completion)

    2) the option to attach comments to specific objects and text pieces. Comment boxes shouldn't just float around on the slide after you add them.

    3) Ability to assign tasks…

  16. Add query string parameter for UI culture for Office Web Viewer

    The UI defaults to the user's browser language setting. In our case, our documents are always French and we want the UI to display in fr-CA culture regardless of the user's preferences.

  18. Adjust where you can write notes. For example on the side of the slide to keep the size of the slide and use space more efficiently.

    When you add notes you can only write them underneath the slide. It would be more convenient to move the slide to either side a bit and use the empty space to take notes so that you slide doesn't shrink too much.

  20. Mouse select improvement

    I have noticed that when I use the mouse to select something the select window does not disappear unless both the height and the witdh of the window have valid values, as seen in the screenshot below:
    https://i.imgur.com/DpoeTK5.png
    This got me wondering about your algorithm, is the select function called only after checking the height and width? Of course, this is just a curiosity of mine and you have no obligation to answer it.
