  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. Support custom fonts

    Provide the ability to use different type (fonts). Our corporate deck does not use standard typefaces. There should be a way to use different typefaces in the online tools.

  6. 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).

  8. 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).

  11. Add more communication to WOPI Power Point postMessage protocol

    Currently, PowerPoint Online embedded through WOPI offers really small amount of communication between iframe and main sirte where iframe is embedded. It would be really good that js postMessage from WOPI PowerPoint iframe sends messages like 'UI_CurrentSlide', 'UI_FullScreen', and receives messages lie 'GoNextSlide', 'GoPreviousSlide', 'StartPresentation', 'GoFullScreen' and similar. I think this would greatly improve embedding PowerPoint Online into other sites.

  12. Hand-drawing animation

  13. Add more SmartArts

    One day I wanted to make my own family tree using SmartArt, but I couldn't add anymore boxes with lines to show who was related to who. I would also like if you could add a title (that you can delete) along with the text, so I could say the person's name and in the text, I could put their information in it (birth, education, relation to me, etc.).

    It is helpful to have guidelines and ruler as like the desktop to ensure text/images/shapes are centered correctly

  15. Allow ability to Print Slides as Handouts When Clicking Print as PDF

    Allow the ability to create 3, 4, or 6 slides per page as handouts when you print just as you can in Office for Windows or Mac.

  16. Get Link for comment only

    Now we have two types of links first for "view only" and second for "edit".
    It is useful to create "comment only" link, like in google drive.
    So someone with this link can view file, can't edit, but can comment file throw default review and comments options.

  17. Import/Export Keynote presentations

    Allow importing/exporting of Keynote presentations into PowerPoint. Keynote has done this for years. It would be nice if it was reciprocal.

  19. Support more Fill color options & gradients

    The fill options for shapes are limited to theme colors -- and no gradients. I need the full color & gradient options that are available in the desktop version.

  20. Take notes in slideshow or reading view

    I believe you should be able to take notes on the side while watching the power point without taking it out of slideshow
