  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…

  3. 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?

  5. Implement a feature in PowerPoint for Mac that records the screen

    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. 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

  9. 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.

    I'd like to be able to minimize or downsize the presenter view window so that I can have something else open on the same screen.

  12. 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.

  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.

  15. 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.

  16. Allow PowerPoint Presenter view to open in other than full screen mode

    When showing a powerPoint presentation projected or on another monitor using Presenter view on the computer, there is a need to be able to view other docs/apps without stopping the presentation. But Presenter view only operates in full screen mode, leaving no access to other docs/apps/windows. Toggle window doesn't work on a Mac. Either toggle window needs to work, or the Presenter view window needs to be smaller than fullscreen to allow access to other docs/apps/windows. This is especially important for a Zoom session when there is a need to look at other documents while sharing one monitor showing the…

  17. Allow Slide and Presenter's view in a single monitor setup

    Hi there!
    Like many of us, I use my laptop without a second screen.
    When it comes to presenting via Zoom this gets tricky. Ideally, I want to share the presentation and be able to watch my presenter's notes.
    But as of now, that's not possible. Neither in full-screen nor in windowed mode I'm able to get into the presenter's console without stopping the actual presentation. Any hacks like only sharing the thumbnail in the presenter's view or using Sidecar on a MacBook aren't really appropriate as the quality gets unbearably low.

  18. Add "Body Language" option to "Rehearse with Coach"

    I have seen several articles on-line that the AI Powerpoint Coach can also assess body language (only head and shoulders). I have not been able to find that option, but it would be an extremely valuable tool for my students.

  19. Shift + arrow key for 10x movement

    This is a function that every piece of graphic design software has, including Keynote and Google Slides. It makes moving objects and text in a precise way a lot faster. Another basic and near-universal design program functionality that PPT lacks.

  20. Width and then height, not the other way around

    The dimension/format panels should have width first, and then height, like literally every other piece of design software on the planet. This is one of the many, many things that makes PPT one of the most frustrating programs for the professional designer to use.
