  1. Resize Notes Pane

    The desktop version of PowerPoint allows the user to resize the notes section by clicking and dragging the line that divides the slide and notes.

    Adding this functionality to PowerPoint online would be a welcome addition, as the default sizing makes it difficult to see multiple lines of notes.

  5. Prompt to check out instead of error 'you have to check out' when editing in sharepoint online.

    If I edit a certain presentation in Powerpoint online, I get a message saying I have to check the presentation out. and a link to User Voice etc.

    So can't there be a way to check the file out then and thereA?

  8. Ability to "undo" while collaborating

    When collaborating online, the undo buttons are greyed out. There should be a way to undo.

  9. Have an Option to remove controls from the viewer. e.g. Chat, Embed, Etc.

    Please provide an option in the PowerPoint Document to disable online viewer controls. We use PowerPoint to create online presentations that we'd like to share publicly, but we do not wish to give our viewers the functionality, or visual clutter, provided by the viewers controls. We'd also prefer to not offer download options in general.

  12. Presenter view in PowerPoint Online.

    It would be nice to also have a Presenter view while using PowerPoint Online. It is the only way for us to easily view notes while presenting.

    Make option to add to Favorite when you have a document open in the Office apps/browser. Right now you can only do that through Delve.

  14. URLs to open specific slides (deep links)

    It would be extremely useful to send a link with parameters and have PowerPoint online jump directly to the specified slide. I understand that means each slide would potentially require a GUID incase ordering etc changed.

  15. Zoom support in reading view

    In reading mode, add an option to zoom in to a slide. I am recieving a powerpoint, but can't see it close enough, even in full screen.

  16. Add Slide Section - Grouping Slides

    It would be pretty cool to be able to group slides together (kind of like a file) where you can minimize it and expand it to see the slides that are inside or even change attributes of the group.

    So if I had a PowerPoint about animals, I could make a group holding all of the slides about koalas. And if I'm no longer working on the koala slides, I can minimize the koala group and all of the slides in the group will be hidden. If I wanted to change something in all of the koala slides but no…

  20. 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.
