  1. Provide an option to hide the Waffle/PowerPoint Online/User bar

    As it is, the bar with the App selector and my user name take up a lot of window real estate and can make it hard to read a detailed PPT slide without going into Presentation mode. This means I can't read it full-sized while taking notes in another window.

    • Powerpoint needs to work with Magic Mouse

      Powerpoint needs to work with Magic Mouse. Office products (especially Powerpoint and Excel) freak out when you're using it. ONLY Office products. It's pushed me to start using Keynote almost exclusively.

      • While printing, in text outline form, numbers are still showing despite placeholder for title is erased

        While printing, in text outline form, numbers are still showing despite placeholder for title is erased, thus showing a blank next to that (unnecessary) number every time a new slide is outlined.

        • 2 Dimension view of PowerPoint

          Like in a book. Where table of content has chapter and sub-chapter. Add axes so powerPoint could be view in 2D. This would make it possible, to make navigation easier. Also, scrolling can me be awfull. It would be more simple to build the sub-part without having a long mess of presentation in strait line.

          • Allow to edit/view a presentation during specific times

            Can you include the option to set time parameters on the ability of others to edit and view a document to prevent further changes?

            • Create REST API to access slide content from Add-ins

              We need to read content from current slide or all slides from opened presentation. In Word and Excel we can use REST API to access paragraphs and images and content from the document. But in PowerPoint we really missing this feature.

                  There was a simple and easily accessible change case feature in powerpoint prior to 2016. Now its either gone or hidden?

                  • Add ability to set Text line spacing options and Auto text size adjustment

                    Please bring the desktop feature allowing to set the text line spacing options (before and after paragraphe line spacing, between ligne spacing) and the Auto text size adjustments.
                    This is a clear limitation of Web and iOS PPT version blocking our 50+ sales reps doing last minute proposal changes on the go.

                    • Improve the sharing content and make it simpler.

                      I like powerpoint online. It is light years ahead of google slides but their sharing options are a little better. Please improve that

                      • 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).

                        • Powepoint for school

                          Have a way you can add a voice recording to a slide.
                          Like if a teacher is presenting, or some one else. you can add a recording of them per slide
                          So The recording start if you press button if you change the slide the recording will stop for that slide and automatically start on the next slide
                          At the end you pressed only once the recording button but each slide has a recording so you can do your review either by reading the power point or listening to the audios on each slide.

                                This would bring in people to work on here more for Microsoft, &
                                will help consumers get offline too maybe for some days only still, But when that expires & a customer really needs to use this, them he may even have to buy this.

                                  • 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.).

                                      • Improve playback of bigger files using PowerPoint Online

                                        I work in the entertainment industry and showcase a lot of video content using PowerPoint presentations. Unfortunately files larger than 100 megabytes take a long time to playback or don't play at all regardless of the quality of the connection. Please improve this soon. If companies like SlideRocket and SlideShark can take your files and compress them to optimize them for online streaming, you can too. I would love to keep it native.

                                        • Please let me replace my existing file under the same name.

                                          I have to always change my file name to save it.
