      • 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.

          • Enable the use of connectors

            Currently in Powerpoint online, we cannot use "Connectors" : add an arrow to a slide and connect 2 boxes. This feature is necessary for simple diagrams.

            • When aligning multiple objects, allow to user to select which object to align to. (e.g. align all objects to the first selected object)

              For example, if I have 3 objects that I want to align to. Right now the align tools, does not allow the user to specify which object to align to. In Keynote, I think you can do this by select the object you want to align to first, and all others will be aligning to this one.

              • Record audio / timings online.

                I would love to use PowerPoint instead of BrainShark and this could be achieved by allowing audio recording / timings online and for each individual slide at a time. Also in embedded playback to automatically play audio.

                    A popular format on the web for vector based images that could be useful in PowerPoint.

                      There was a simple and easily accessible change case feature in powerpoint prior to 2016. Now its either gone or hidden?

                        • Support More Slide Themes

                          Add more themes to be able to make your PowerPoint look better. Even my PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2010 has more themes than PowerPoint Online. That's pretty bad.

                          • Add WordArt

                            WordArt has been a staple in Microsoft Office and appears in every iteration of Office at least since 2000, but oddly doesn't appear in Office Online. Why? Please put it back!

                              • Shared Presentation Screen (ie, Present Online)

                                it's really helpful to allow a user to share a presentation with other people and then start presenting that to them. for instance it can synchronize current slide or laser position. combine it with Skype for a full presentation(with audio).

                                    • Right-click to SAVE specific graphic image as .PNG or .JPG

                                      This is an extremely useful feature when using PowerPoint to mash-up and label images for use in another application (e.g. making online learning objects within a LMS).
