  1. Smart Lookup

    Please include the Smart Lookup feature that is available with the desktop version; in the Online version. This would be great for looking up facts and images without having to leave the presentation.

  3. Word count

    word count allows you to be able to automatically see the amount of words highlighted so if you are doing an essay or need a certain amount of words in your powerpoint for work you could use Word Count

  5. Add "Delete" to the right-click menu.

    Because cut, paste and copy are already in the menu, but delete isn't. I just think it would be a good idea.

  10. Copy text from viewer (aka, preview mode)

    I have shared a presentation with some co workers. When they view the presentation they need the ability to select and copy text from a slide. However, when they click the slide to make a selection it changes to the next slide.

  11. Import Word into Powerpoint

    You've created Sway which takes too long. Powerpoint can do the same thing if you would allow the word doc to be copied into poperpoint and let the user create the slides from the document.

  15. Need to know ALL slides that use a particular master layout...

    When hovering over a master layout, PPT indicates which slide numbers use that layout--but only the first few. We really need to be able to determine somewhere ALL the slides that use a particular layout.

  16. Translation: Improve Japanese support

    , Japanese PowerPoint presentations that include bits of Latin characters within a Japanese sentence are being auto-detected as being English as the proofing language. This causes the text runs to be split up in an undesirable way behind the scenes, causing unwanted complexity when trying to parse these files for translation using CAT (computer-aided translation) tools.

  17. macOS only fonts support in Slide Master

    Currently we can't set macOS only fonts (ex.Hiragino Gothic) in Slide Master's default one. We need to set fonts manually to all slide master objects.

  20. give full functionality to licensed users

    If a user is licensed give him full functionality. My offline office got corrupted, cannot re-install it, in the meantime need to create a presentation. There are so many limitations in the offline version it is frustrating.
