  1. PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out.

    PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out. I tried adding it in Preferences, but it still did nothing. I like finding online clipart and backgrounds using this feature. When will it be implemented in the Mac version?

        • Change default pasting text option

          When pasting text, please make it optional to change the default settings to something other than "Use destination theme." Eliminating the need to have to toggle down each time text entries are entered.

          • Please support PowerPoint for Mac on the current plus 2 previous macOS operating systems

            https://support.office.com/article/upgrade-your-macos-to-access-new-office-365-for-mac-features-f6efc6b6-90f8-4e69-82dd-d0de32a111aa

            There is some indication that Office for Mac 2019 will only support the latest current release of macOS plus the previous operating system. This is a formal request from an Enterprise admin to have Microsoft provide support for the current macOS operating system plus the two previous operating systems.

            Apple has been absolutely horrendous in documenting and providing the appropriate management tools to deal with major restrictions they've been adding to macOS. This makes it much more difficult to deploy the latest macOS release on day 1. As an example, the majority of our users are still on macOS…

                • Make it possible to be able to use a non-Microsoft font for the HEADER and BODY text placeholders.

                  Sometimes users want to use OTHER font combinations outside of the 10 or so built in MSFT only font combos. When I inquired about this, as usual, I was told "You can do that on the PC version". That's a A POOR EXCUSE. You've been developing PowerPoint for the Mac and the PC for OVER 20 YEARS - and you chage the same for Mac and PC versions, so there's NO EXCUSE for the Mac version of PowerPoint to do ANYTHING LESS than the PC version. There are DOZENS of MAJOR features missing from the Mac version. 20+ years is…

                    • Don't make me type units

                      The fields in the Paragraph dialog box don't compensate when you forget to type the units, even when they're presupposed. It doesn't even fill in the units for you after the alert box pops up.

                      • Allow 'Default line style' and 'Default arrowhead style' to be set separately

                        It is possible to save a certain line style as a default, but if you add arrowheads to the line before saving as a default every new line then gets arrowheads.

                        It would be useful to be able to say "this is a default line without arrowheads, but if you do want arrowheads this is what they should look like". In other words, allow a default arrowhead style to be saved independently of the default line style.

                        • Allow a default table style to be set

                          The ability to set a default table style in a presentation is a major omission from PowerPoint. Currently when you insert a table it takes the formatting of one of the built-in table styles, which you can then change by choosing another one of the built-in styles.

                          Most brands require a specific format for their tables - e.g. a certain colour of header row, a certain style of borders, etc. It would be very helpful if these attributes could be baked into a template so that new tables automatically take on the correct styling.

                          Currently the only workaround for this…

                          • Creating a link between text boxes in PowerPoint.

                            In Word, you click a text box > select "Create a link" > select an empty text box to flow text between text boxes. If there is over flow of text a new page forms.

                            • Add Diagram Measurement-Style Ends to Arrow Type Options for Lines

                              Please add the ability to select ┣ and ┫as Begin and End Arrow Types for lines. This would be very useful for when I have to diagram something and use lines to display measurements (like on a blueprint).

                              This can currently only be done by attaching small lines to the ends of the line that spans the measured length, which can be difficult and time-consuming to use.

                                When you use morph in an imac with the main screen for presenting everything works fine.

                                However, if you do the same thing in a macbook pro, the effect jumps instead of being smooth.

                                • Add "Change All Images/Graphics" Option

                                  Please allow the option to replace all instances of an image in a PP document.

                                  Currently, if you have a deck that involves a single, repeated image amongst its slides, one must change each instance of the image manually.

                                  Use cases:
                                  • Using the morph transition, an image changes size/crop/position across the slides. Instead of tediously replaces every instance, this option would replace all at once.
                                  • An image is placed on multiple slides throughout the document (some could even be hidden in the selection pane). You're not sure where all of them are, but the image must be updated.…
