  1. STOP MAKING EVERYTHING AUTOMATIC

    Microsoft office online is not user friendly. The problem is that it's TOO AUTOMATIC. This program thinks it knows what I want but really doesn't. And my classmates using the same program agree with me. For example, it tries to format a textbox to a certain size when I click off of the textbox. It looks SO INCONSISTENT with the rest of the presentation. That's not the worst part! When I try change the font back by clicking on the textbox, it automatically changes it back to the way I want it. But when I unclick the textbox (so that…

    • Add "Push" translation.

      It's a basic translation. I understand we don't have origami, but this can't be that hard.

      • Make the size of the 'notes' area changeable

        Make the size of the 'notes' area changeable. I have long notes to read but the box is so small. Also be able to change the font and print size etc because its so small.. The content of the slides isnt important but the notes are and its a hinderance trying to read them.

        • Improve Notes Master to follow Design

          I've seen other suggestions in this forum to improve Notes Master, so let me add another one. It might be time to enhance Notes Master, as there has not been much of a change during the last 20 years.
          Please have the notes master follow the Design.
          The first step would be to apply the same Design settings like Design Fonts and Design Colors (and Design Effects) to the Notes Master (and Handout Master as well) as soon as I apply a different Design to a presentation.
          The second step should be the ability to add objects like additional placeholders…

          • suggestion area

            I think you should add a suggestion area. Let's say you don't know what to put in a slide. You could just go to an area and get a suggestion for a slide. This would be helpful for mostly students for projects. Thank you for listening.

            • Section Breaks

              When creating screen mock-ups, some are larger than what can be done on landscape. Microsoft provides section breaks in Word, why not in PowerPoint? This would allow me to re-orient the slide to create the larger mock-up without having to create a separate file - which is not desirable.

              • negative zoom

                While resizing the shapes and other objects in powerpoint. we always face this problem of changing the original proportions. To over come this problem, I suggest something that I call it 'Negative Zoom'.
                This feature will let user to resize the objects without altering the original proportions.
                How it works?
                One can select any resizable object on the slide, Press Ctrl+H and then zoom the slide (by shifting the pointer on the right hand corner of the slide). This was the object will remain freezed while the background will resize.

                This will allow easy resizing of objects without actually resizing…

                  • Add kiosk mode or allow Power Point show files to disable click/hit arrow key to next page. Or simply add an option to disable it.

                    I'm trying to make a presentation that requires the user to click on a button that jumps them to different slides. For example, they may go from slide 3 to 6 or 3 to 9 depending on the button they select.

                    Without disabling click and arrows to next slide this makes things difficult to offer my PowerPoint through online platforms.

                    Thank you.

                      • It would be great to have the option to put a static grid in the background of slides in Mac PowerPoint!

                        It would make formatting images and figures a lot easier. I don't find the Dynamic guides or the single horizontal/vertical static guides easy to work with. I think this used to be available in PPT and got removed at some point.

                            • Full Screen Edit Mode

                              You should add a full screen option to PPT online to make it easier to use. By that I mean make the program itself go to the borders of the screen. It is really condensed at the moment and could use a bit of de-condensing

                                        • Make it so u can have a chat box separate from the PowerPoint itself.

                                          so u dont have to not know who wrote what and argue a lot.
