  1. Please make Images/Shapes with links work when exported to PDF

    When you insert a link on an object (image/shape) to a place within the PPT file (eg. Page 4 from an object on Page 1) and then export the file to PDF the links don't work. If you do exactly the same thing on a PC the links work fine when exported to PDF.

  2. Custom Font Themes for Mac

    I'm trying to set a custom font theme in a new PowerPoint template from the list of pre-defined themes in the dropdown list. But it's my understanding that this is not possible to add custom font on a Mac. However, this feature is available on Window. Do you know when this feature will be made available for Mac?

  3. General request - make all Power Point tools equal on PC and Mac.

    Microsoft is selling limited version of PowerPoint 2019 on Mac charging the same or more money. There are plenty of tools and options not available on Macs, where are quite long available on PC. This is very unfair and I'm surprised that there is still no lawsuit against that company for tens and hundreds of millions $ for making faulty software. Im just going to promote that action in public so maybe in a short time we would see significant improvement of Mac version of Office, or MS will be sued for millions. In US, in EU, in UK, wherever…

    It would be great if PowerPoint for Mac could record the screen like the Windows version can.

  6. QAT below the ribbon

    The QAT in Mac Office software is fixed at the top of the document window. It cannot be repositioned regardless of version. It would be really great if it would be possible to move Quick Access Toolbar below the ribbon in Mac. That would help me very much.

  7. Lock Object Position on Slide

    Please make it possible to lock the position of an object (e.g,. image) on a slide. The feature is in Keynote and is indispensable when adding labels and layers to an underlying image.

  8. Disable Presenter Mode AND Mirroring on Powerpoint

    I do virtual events and disabling presenter mode so you can share your presentation on one monitor and have our platform on the other monitor without presenter view coming up would help us greatly. We currently have to make the presentation "browse as an individual window and its not ideal for live virtual events

  10. Font Kerning in Powerpoint

    Can we please see kerning corrected in powerpoint for all fonts?

    The fonts look great in photoshop but when using the fonts in Powerpoint, the kerning pairs are not recognized - making the font look incorrect. Even when kerning is selected through the font menu, it does not work.

    For example, typing AV provides a large space between the letters in Powerpoint that should not be there in fonts that have had these two letters kerned properly.

  15. Enabling to record a slideshow with a video narrative in PowerPoint (Office 365) for Mac OS X Catalina.

    Please, enable to record a slideshow with a video narrative in PowerPoint (Office 365) for Mac OS X Catalina. Unfortunately, it is available for Windows only.
    The link https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/record-a-slide-show-with-narration-and-slide-timings-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c#OfficeVersion=macOS is not applicable for Mac OS Catalina. If this feature is implemented, it will be very interesting for users are looking for a way to make some video classes because they could record the slide show and the speaker's video simultaneously.

  16. Enable slide and section zoom

    The slide and section zoom feature has long been available for windows users, and there have been multiple previous requests for this feature. A post in 2018 from the powerpoint product team indicated that version 16.19 would have this feature which is not true. I am running version 16.50 which still doesn't have it.

  17. Lock the position of objects while maintaining editing abilities (text)

    I am a designer and I do a lot of corporate identity stuff. Part of this is that I do masters for their presentations. Idea being, that the customer gets consistently beautiful presentations. However no matter how hard I try, no matter how often and intensely you tell them - they WILL move boxes, they WILL fuck up the layout and they WILL come complaining that the master you made for them "didn't last long" and "doesn't look good anymore"

    I would therefore love to be able to LOCK TEXT BOXES IN PLACE - ideally also in size - so…

  18. Insérer un objet dans PowerPoint sur mac

    Il n’y a malheureusement pas la possibilité d’ajouter des objets (PDF, JPG), dans PowerPoint sur la version Mac contrairement à la version Windows.

    Serait-il possible d’ajouter cette fonctionnalité afin d’y remédier ?

  20. Slide font corruption if it has objects in Enhanced Metafile Format

    You copy object from PowerPoint for Windows desktop app and paste it to another slide as Enhanced Metafile Format. If you open the slide which has the EMF objects, you see characters are corrupted in the deck. This happens in PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 for Mac version 16.44(20121301) or later. Please fix this problem.
