  1. Add support for SVG and icons

    Allow ability to insert and edit scalable vector graphics (SVG) files into your documents on Mac. I used to be able to insert .emf files and then ungroup them into shapes which I could edit. It's very frustrating that there is no option for this now on the Mac.

      • 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…

          • releases the exact same features for PPT mac that are on PPT windows

            Please releases the exact same features for PPT mac that are on PPT windows.

            Currently having different features for different operating systems creates lots of problems and confusion.

            Plus many execs I do presentations for are running on Macs. Also, many designer folks creating presentation templates are on macs, and the design folks are often are creating presentations for other managers and clients.

            • 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.

                        • Option-drag to resize object while keeping it centered

                          Why did you take away the feature in previous PPT versions that allowed resizing an object while holding option key to keep center of object in the same place? That was so useful to be able to do this in one step. Now, the center of the object moves with the drag of a corner, and one has to click back on the object after dragging to move it back to its original position. Why do you make things harder for us???

                                    • Provide possibility to embed videos in PDFs exported from PPT

                                      When exporting to PDF, I would like to have the option of embedding all videos directly and automatically in the PDF.
                                      I know I can embed videos afterwards in an existing PDF, but this is way to cumbersome, especially for presentations that contain several videos.
                                      PPT should embed the videos in the PDF even if they are only linked to from the PPT file.

                                      • Mac OS color palette no longer works in 16.10 (180204)

                                        If you select "more fill colors" to browse the OS-level color selection options, there is a palette of 18 custom colors on the bottom that is consistent across all apps. If you click on a color, it will highlight the color, but there is no longer any way to select the color for use on the item in your slide. Before, you could select the color, click OK, and the color would be applied to the object. But now, the palette is non-functional.

                                        Microsoft's color palette management is so poor, this is like adding insult to injury.
