    • Allow uncompressed pictures to be inserted

      Attached pictures to PowerPoint are compressed and low quality. Allow users to attach uncompressed pictures.

      • Editing Pictures

        I am a student and often I need to do assignments at home which means I can't do it on my school account but I can do it on my school email. It would be nice to be able to edit the pictures like in PowerPoint. But online this isn't available which sometimes is frustrating when trying to get an assignment done on a different computer for school.

          • More Autocorrection

            AUTOCORRECT WOULD HELP FOR FAST TYPERS LIKE ME WHO ALWAYS MAKE MISTAKES AND HAVE TO GO BACK THROUGH LONG PARAGRAPHS AND CORRECTS, TAKING ME AT LEAST 5-7 MIN JUST TO CORRECT

              • 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?

                • Ability to "undo" while collaborating

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

                    • 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.

                        • Allow pictures larger than 6MB

                          why restrict size? I like the integration of cloud sharing through office, why limit the size of files i can upload or put on a presentation for work, or a class? Why stop at 6? why not make it unlimited? Let us use the software to its maximum potential! More content over 6MB allowed!

                          • 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.

                              • Enable "Zoom" (non linear presentations) in PPT Online

                                It would be great if you could include Action Buttons or allow links to images or shapes in order to navigate between non-linear slides during playback. For example; from slide 1 click the action button to go to slide 5, click the action button to go back to slide 1, start over, click 'here' to go to slide 3, click here to exit.

                                • 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…

                                    • Enable laser pointer permanently

                                      In Set Up Show it would be great to have an option to enable the Laser Pointer (or other pointer options) as soon as a presentation is launched.

                                      A lot of presenters at conferences want this feature and it is very inconvenient to have to start the pointer manually each time.

                                        • Automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made to slides

                                          Where I work we use PowerPoint Online to keep organizational charts of employees. As people come and go, or change teams, we need to update these charts. It would be handy to have PPO automatically update the date in the footer when changes are made.
