    • Slide Sorter Viview

      Please add slide sorter view to Office 365. I use this feature every time I'm working on a presentation.

          • DVPs for Education

            More DVPs specifically for the Education seller needed. Just the Device related USP isn't sufficient.

              • Options to make Timer in Presentation Mode more prominent

                I have a presentation which I will show on a projector with my laptop screen in "Presentation Mode", showing the current slide, but also other things, like the next slide. In addition, it has a timer, but it is tiny and unobtrusive.

                I would like to have a way to make this timer:

                - A lot bigger
                - Count down from a specific timespan
                - Colored (e.g. yellow, then red) as you approach the alotted time

                So that it is actually obtrusive (and thus more helpful).

                PS. This is a cross-post from superuser.com at https://superuser.com/q/1312151/82470

                • Insert header and footer

                  Since I want to work together with other people I use PowerPoint Online. I ran in to a problem with headers and footers on the slides. According to the help you need to copy a textbox onto each slide.
                  Why isn't the offline functionality integrated with PowerPoint Online

                  • Slide Show view (button) missing in the new PowerPoint Online Preview view

                    In Office 365 first release, PowerPoint Online has a new Preview view when opening presentations from SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business. That is OK, but there seems to be no way of starting the slide show view (as in presenting the slides for an audience). It does not seem logical that one needs to open the presentation in edit mode to be able to present it. Of course one could go through the slides in the preview as well, but it is clearly not the same as the slide show view (in PowerPoint Online, when in edit mode).

                    • Improve low-res images with advanced scaling approaches like waifu2x

                      There are new scaling approaches like waifu2x that can do an unbelievably good job scale an image by 2-4x typically with little to no artifacts. I do it all the time using command-line or online tools for presentations. It'd be great if it was integrated in. It really improves the appearance of those low-res images/clipart your co-workers like to use.

                      • 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.

                        • Export all the text in Powerpoint to a word document

                          it would be really useful if there was a shortcut to export the text from Powerpoint to a word document.

                              Add format painter for tables. This should include changing colours, text font and size, text spacing and border thickness.

                              • 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.

                                • Allow to "follow" a document from within the document

                                  Allow to "follow" a document from within the document without having to navigate a lot to get to the site library. Especially as with the new Sharepoint UI you often arrive at a result list without ellipsis and can't follow there either. Most of the time you have to look into the document to see its contents to decide on the "following"

                                  • Improve Notes Master to follow Design (Rich Formatting in Notes Pane)

                                    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…

                                    • Bring back scroll bar arrows at bottom right side of screen like Office 2011 for Mac

                                      It's very difficult to navigate large documents without scroll bars - especially for long timer Mac office users who have become accustomed to this built in too..
