      Thanks for your feedback! The PowerPoint for Mac team is reviewing your suggestion to provide a way to compare and merge two PowerPoint files. We would also like to have this feature and will consider it in future planning rounds.

      Remember, this site helps us to prioritize our backlog so the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. If this is a feature that is important to you, be sure to give it a vote!

    • Layers and locks.

      Please add the ability to show/hide layers, as on any other design program. Also the ability to lock/unlock an item to avoid when group selecting. Use InDesign, and learn.

          • 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.

              • Advanced Timeline Feature

                It would be great if the Mac version of PowerPoint had the advanced timeline feature like the p.c version; where you can see the duration of each element as a coloured bar, and manually edit and slide the timing for each element along. This would make it a lot easier to achieve more advanced motion graphics on the Mac.

                    • Allow for Audible speaker notes in powerpoint to make it more accessible

                      I am Autistic, I struggle to make and follow notes, I don't think I am dyslexic but when I look at notes the words jump around, which causes me to lose my train of thought. Not having this feature limits the accessibility of the product to people that are blind, partially sighted, learning disabled, illiterate and Dyslexic. Being able to listen to an audio prompt on each slide would work much better for me and I'm sure other disabled people

                        • Retain BOTH Hyperlinks and Fonts in Saved PDFs

                          Users have to choose between keeping hyperlinks or keeping fonts in a PDF saved from PowerPoint. This choice is unacceptable, the PDF save needs to retain both. Windows users don't have to make this choice.

                            Currently in a multiple column text box, one has to add extra spaces to force a line into the second column, why not have a column break command in PPT as there is in Word?

                              • Play Embedded Videos on Slide when Exported to Video

                                If you have a presentation that is exported to a video that contains embedded video on a slide that's set to play automatically after exporting the presentation to an MOV or MP4, the embedded video does not play. Any animations you've made do play but the video does not. Videos do play automatically when your watching your presentation in slideshow mode but not after exporting it to an MOV.

                                Videos set to play automatically do do so when exporting to video on Windows but this feature doesn't exist on the Macintosh. Thank you!

                                  • GLOBAL KEEP ORIGINAL FORMAT/THEME OPTION

                                    I move many slides from one presentation to the next, and sometimes the themes are different and I am forever having to tell PPT to use the source formatting parameters. it's just plain annoying.

                                    On the Mac there should be a way of setting the default so that the slide looks exactly like the original wherever it is transferred to.

                                    I don't use styles and themes -- I imagine there are many PPT users like me.

                                      • Retain Hyperlinks on Shapes Saved to PDF

                                        1. Add a shape to a PowerPoint 2011 or 2016 slide.
                                        2. Add a hyperlink to the shape.
                                        3. Save the file as PDF and open in Reader. The hyperlink is gone.

                                        This works as expected in the Windows versions of PowerPoint, please fix!

                                        • 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.
