  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. 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…

  4. 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?

  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. 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.

  9. 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. Show pointer on recorded slides.

    Office 365 has a feature that allows you to view a prerecorded pointer if the presenter used it when recording the slideshow.

    The pointer shows on a prerecorded slideshow in Windows, however, the same file doesn't show the pointer on a Mac.

    Adding this feature will make life easier, especially with online learning.

  11. Bring back "Reuse slide" and allow formatting options when inserting slides

    In Office for Mac 2011 (and for current Windows Users) one can choose to reuse a single slide (or 2, 3 etc) from another presentation and retain the original formatting. No more! With 2016 the user is forced to add ALL slides from the secondary presentation - and the formatting is automatically changed, too. For example, if you need 2 slides from a 100 slide presentation, all 100 slides are inserted and all formatting auto-changed to the receiving presentation. This renders the feature virtually useless and costs users a ton of time that wasn't previously required. The Microsoft Tech team…

  13. Add a function in the "Draw" tab that allows you to highlight and underline text in straight lines!

    Add and setting in "Draw" Tab in which you can highlight or underline text on slides in a straight line to keep from having to use your trackpad. Almost like a ruler or straight edge function that you could turn on or off depending on if you want you "pen" or "highlighter" to go in a straight horizontal line.

  14. 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.

  17. Paragraph and character styles, please!

    Why can't we create/modify paragraph and character styles with a format pane as robust as Word? Header 1, Header 2, captions, custom bullets et al that don't have to be reformatted over and over again would make things so much faster, consistent, and easier. Your end user is familiar with paragraph styles in Word, give them a little credit to be able to use them in PowerPoint as well.

  19. Quickly move slide to the end of the presentation

    Currently you can only move a slide to the end of the presentation via drag and drop. When having a large presentation (>1,000 slides) this is not easily being done, not even in the "sorting view". This is particularly handy when one is reviewing a previously made slide deck and one is not certain if the slide could later on be re-used. Hiding a slide is another option, but this messes up the view (especially with multiple hidden slides).

    It would be convenient if it is possible to quickly move a particular (combination of) slide(s) to the end of the…

  20. When switching views closed sections are not being remembered

    Sections in the "sorting view" can be collapsed. When switching the view from the sorting view to e.g. the normal view and back, PowerPoint does not remember which sections were closed just before that. All sections start in the open position when opening the "sorting view".

    When working with a lot of sections (>50) this gets annoying as this prevents the user from quickly navigating through his/her slide deck and closing (previously already closed) sections over and over again.

    Please give PowerPoint some memory, thanks.
