        • Please add cluster stacked chart in the chart type

          Currently one can make either charts with clustered column/bar or stacked column/bars. Given Hierarchal chart are already introduced, can we expand that capability to give stacked columns that are also clustered?

          Use case example: Region-wise performance (X-axis) of different products (stacks in column), in current year vs previous year (cluster columns)

          • Allow Custom Quick Access Toolbar to be placed below ribbon like in PC (with short keys)

            PC QAT was a super efficient way to format slides and achieve uniformity across slides, presentations. It was placed right where one can simply click next to slide. Alternatively, one just had to memorize the custom shortkey (Alt+1, Alt +2 ...etc.)
            In Mac, the placement is odd, right at the top & needs too many clicks there to access options. Further, the shortcut keys require pressing 3 buttons to achieve what can be done by 2 simultaneous keys in PC.

              • Allow custom data labels for scatter plots

                This has been a feature in the windows version for forever! I don't understand why it can't be added in mac. Seriously.

                • Allow specific font search in font menu and apply changes to the selected text.

                  To apply the specific font to text, one needs to go to font and search from drop-down menu instead of having it automatically.

                  Need to have an auto select drop down with the fewer text of font name.

                  Like when I enter "Arial N", it should display "Arial Narrow" font for easy selection.

                        • Right-justifying labels in bar charts does not work properly.

                          Expected behavior: With a bar chart added to PPT 2016, use of the left, center, right justification tools is expected to justify text according to the button. This would be used to right justify all text as close to the bar chart origin line as possible.

                          Observed behavior: use of the left/right/center buttons moves text up and down, not left and right.

                          This was very well documented with screenshots at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_powerpoint-mso_mac/text-alignment-issue-in-bar-chart-powerpoint-2016/68ea4b55-9423-4c42-929c-bf7ac649bc5a

                            Since there is no developer tab in ribbon, you cannot add a clickable box to slides. Please add.

                              • Please add new Charts Found in Windows 2016 Version

                                The Windows version of Powerpoint has some great new chart types: https://blogs.office.com/2015/07/02/introducing-new-and-modern-chart-types-now-available-in-office-2016-preview/

                                Please add them to the Mac Version! We paid the same price as our PC friends! If you have to prioritize, please start by adding the waterfall chart feature.

                                Thanks for listening

                                  • Data links to Excel in powerpoint for mac 2011

                                    In powerpoint the paste chart options provide for:
                                    1 - paste chart with data linked to Excel (default)
                                    2 - Embed excel file in PPT
                                    3 - Paste picture

                                    I think we need to have two essential features:

                                    First the obvious one:
                                    4 - Paste chart WITHOUT data link to Excel (it is a mystery why this

                                    And since we now have so many inked charts in our PPT files now, we also need a solution (as in Windows) to review, edit and break data links to Excel. Can we really believe this is not in Office 2011 for Mac?

                                    • Enable changing source files of linked Excel charts from Powerpoint

                                      When an excel chart is inserted in powerpoint the data och the chart is linked to an excel spreadsheet.

                                      In the windows version it is possible to change the source file of the linked data. It is not possible to do this in powerpoint 2016 for Mac.

                                        • open pp2011 with pp2016

                                          I just upgraded from 2011 to 2016, and I face the problem to open my ppt 2011 with 2016, and it is only for the PP.
                                          It is find for excel and word.

                                          I presume there is a setting problem; could someone know about to solve this issue. Thanks
