  1. PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out.

    PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out. I tried adding it in Preferences, but it still did nothing. I like finding online clipart and backgrounds using this feature. When will it be implemented in the Mac version?

    • Change default pasting text option

      When pasting text, please make it optional to change the default settings to something other than "Use destination theme." Eliminating the need to have to toggle down each time text entries are entered.

      • Add Diagram Measurement-Style Ends to Arrow Type Options for Lines

        Please add the ability to select ┣ and ┫as Begin and End Arrow Types for lines. This would be very useful for when I have to diagram something and use lines to display measurements (like on a blueprint).

        This can currently only be done by attaching small lines to the ends of the line that spans the measured length, which can be difficult and time-consuming to use.

          • Add "Change All Images/Graphics" Option

            Please allow the option to replace all instances of an image in a PP document.

            Currently, if you have a deck that involves a single, repeated image amongst its slides, one must change each instance of the image manually.

            Use cases:
            • Using the morph transition, an image changes size/crop/position across the slides. Instead of tediously replaces every instance, this option would replace all at once.
            • An image is placed on multiple slides throughout the document (some could even be hidden in the selection pane). You're not sure where all of them are, but the image must be updated.…

            • Apply Morph Transition for Edited Points

              I would like the ability to morph between instances of the same shape (on sequential slides), but with edited points.

              For instance, if I have a circle, and I want to drag the tangent handles out slightly or maybe even move the points relative to each other using the Edit Points tool for each slide. I would like PowerPoint to morph the tangent lines smoothly, recognizing that it's the same object, but with modified points/tangents.

              This is different from scaling/moving the object as a whole.

              This will allow us to make more complex animation without needing to change anything in…

                  • Custom Colors for Mac users

                    It is frustrating that some of the abilities on a PC PowerPoint version are not the same as on a Mac version. I would like to be able to create a Custom Colors section that appears under the Theme Colors palette. I understand this can be achieved on a PC but would like this available on a Mac please, please, please. Thank you.

                    • Creating a link between text boxes in PowerPoint.

                      In Word, you click a text box > select "Create a link" > select an empty text box to flow text between text boxes. If there is over flow of text a new page forms.

                      • Animation Toggle

                        Please add the ability to "hide" or "turn off" specific Animations in the Animation Pane. Like the eyeball in the Selection Pane.

                        It would be useful to have an animation applied to an object, but to have it turned off. This feature could be used to view other animations in the stack by themselves, or in the case that you don't need that animation now, but might need to turn it on later (without having to completely recreate it).

                        • See live preview of character spacing

                          Previous versions of PPT allowed live previewing of condensing or expanding of font character spacing. It is now no longer available and it a lot of time gets spent trying out a spacing value and having to go back and forth to get it just as needed. Please bring Live Preview back.

                                      • Set blank slide master when create new file

                                        When you create new ppt file by default it sets slide master with headlines. Every time better start work with blank slide

                                        • Provide option to set resolution of external display when in slide show mode

                                          Currently, when Powerpoint switches to slide mode it ignores the established resolution with an external monitor and attempts to handshake and figure out the resolution itself. On certain switching equipment (Crestron, Extron, etc.) it is unable to establish the maximum resolution and defaults to the lowest. At this point there is no way to increase the resolution. In the Windows version there is an option to set the resolution. The suggestion is to add this to the Mac version. Alternatively (or in addition), it would seem logical if Powerpoint did not try to determine the resolution when entering slide show…
