  1. Add OCR functionality (already developed in OneNote)

    This has already been developed for OneNote, it is called "Copy Text from Picture". You can paste a picture with text in any OneNote page, right click on it, and there is the option to Copy the text. Then it is available in the clipboard. It is the fastest simplest most efficient OCR I've ever used. It should be made available in PowerPoint, actually, any MS Office product out of the box

        • need a way to disable autosave (reading mode to prevent unintended change)

          Currently autosave is forced on every file on Onedrive. Terrible idea. Why? Because every time it saves, it changes the file's modified date. So I have no way knowing when the file was last edited. Let's say, if I open a file I edited in March.13th on Onedrive, the instant I open it and type something, its modified date changes to Sep.18th (today). So now I have to figure out whether the file is old data or new data, or when I lastly 'really' modified it (from the explorer) unless I open it in Powerpoint to see its saved history.…

            Thanks for the feedback on autosave!

            I am sorry to hear the trouble you met with the autosave. I summarized the issues / requirements as the following and please let me know if I missed anything:
            - You did some unintended changes and they were saved to the file automatically. You want to revert the changes and keep the last saved time as the original. For this one, we are thinking to make it easier to switch between edit view and reading view. In reading view, you will not make any un-intended changes to the file.
            - You want to know the history edit versions of the file to understand who made what changes. We are also thinking to improve this experience to allow people access version history within PowerPoint Online. Before we add this feature, you can find the version history list from the OneDrive or SharePoint (click the…

                • Add animations to objects within groups

                  When I group objects, all animations are removed. It would be much better to keep those animations, so I can move objects in a group AND have the individual objects animate.

                      • Encode Embed URLs

                        URLs generated for embedding slideshows should be URL encoded.

                        All of the links I've seen contian "{" and "}" characters, which aren't safe URL characters according to RFC 3986.

                                  • Embed Specific Slides of a Powerpoint

                                    Hi, I'm using One Drive to store my powerpoints which I then embed into my website. I'd like to be able to embed only specific slides of my powerpoint instead of the entire thing. Currently, the only way to do that is to make a bunch of separate powerpoints with 1 or 2 slides that I want to embed each, which makes everything cluttered.

                                    • Support larger Audio files contained in the PPT file

                                      Hello Microsoft,

                                      I tried out the “Sway” application from Outlook.

                                      I tried to upload an MS-PowerPoint Presentation (I think it was done in Windows, but now I’m uploading it from an iMac). The version of 2012-08-26 time….

                                      So there is audio on each slide.

                                      However, it appears that (apparently these might be bugs)
                                      The file-size for audio on PowerPoint online did not allow it to play.
                                      The audio, when the presentation was embed-ded in Sway, did not show the “play” triangle for many slides.

                                      Just some feedback….

                                      I suggest you fix it.

                                      Regards,
                                      Ms. Ann Abraham.
                                      2017-05-31.
