  1. Insert Slide Numbers

    There is a support article for slide numbers saying that the supported way to do slide numbers is to make them manually. Support for this, even if it's as basic as the support in Google Slides, would be very useful.

    • Make Slide Navigation Buttons Higher Up

      I have the windows 8 chrome and every time i try to press the buttons to change the slide, the mini task bar gets in the way. So making the buttons higher up, and maybe bigger? Thanks for your consideration.

      • Insert or import PDF as images

        once downloaded file to my computer I can-t import saved pdf images. I think this would be a good idea

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Slide sorter view

              its difficult to organize large presentations via the slider bar. There are 100+ slides in a deck its not easy to drag and drop with the slider to rearrange. I tried adding the desktop link to edit offline but it didnt work.

              • Add vertical templates suitable for books

                People can use power point to make things like books by downloading it in pdf form so it could be uploaded to make kindles but the horizontal format won't work for create space type formate so people need power point design templates that are 8.5 by 11 or whatever regular size paper is so vertically it can be formatted.Please make a design template that can be vertical and it would make it so much better for people trying to make things like childrens books using it. Can you please add vertical as well as the regular horizontal design?

                  • 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.

                          • Allow Notes to be shown in a sidebar (like the Comments are)

                            Editing slide notes is extremely difficult online because the Notes pane can't be made bigger. Can we get the same functionality that shows Comments in the right sidebar but with Notes as an alternative?

                                • 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.

                                        On my desktop at home, I can use columns, but at school, they provide me a laptop in which they don't allow me to download things in.

                                        • Add an advertisement template

                                          There are several templates on PowerPoint, but there is not a slide that has a layout for an advertisement. If a has a project to advertise then can use the template or layout on PowerPoint.
