  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.

        • 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.

            • Change picture

              Restore contextual menu "Change Picture..." feature. (Right-click on an image, click "Change Picture..." then select a new image file.) I use this daily and was saddened to see it disappear in a recent slow build update.

                  • 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.

                    • Change Picture Function in Right Click Dropdown - PowerPoint 2016 Mac

                      You removed the "Change Picture" function in PowerPoint from the right click drop-down. PUT IT BACK. It's an extremely valuable function and is a pain in the butt to have to add it to the Quick Access toolbar and use it there.

                        • You should be able to put placeholder images in the back so you can put an image over it.

                          Putting design elements over a placeholder image is a feature regulary asked by clients. More layering would be very nice.

                            • 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.

                                • Make existing software functional!

                                  Using PowerPoint for Mac V. 16.10 (180210) under macOS 10.13.3, its impossible to change the font in individual Text Boxes using either the Format > Font… command or the Format > Replace Fonts… command. You have to use another software program like Microsoft Word to create a Text Box with the font you want, then copy and paste it to PowerPoint. Please fix this

                                      • Make an option to change the mouse right click in show mode to enable reverse (instead of the contextual show menu).

                                        Make an option to change the mouse right click in show mode to enable reverse (instead of the contextual show pop up menu). This option is on the PC version of PowerPoint and should be on the Mac version too. This would enable presenters to quickly reverse and advance during a show, without having to bring up a menu on screen.
