  2. Edit notes in real time while in Presenter View mode

    Really need a easy to insert "whiteboard" or dynamic text box function that would allow you to type notes for the group to see during lectures. Please, this could be like an insert object function (insert whiteboard)

  11. Please add the option to create higher quality PDF files from documents (Gray scale does not export to PDF well)

    Using low quality PDF files from Powerpoint for Mac looks unprofessional and could push users like myself to use other programs. Adding the option to create high quality exports would drastically improve the quality of powerpoint.

  12. Please make Powerpoint on Macs able to handle embedded PDF files

    To those who read this post, please add a comment so that Microsoft may get the message that there are a lot of people who use Office on the Mac and need it to have the same capabilities as Office on Windows.

    My company deals with a partner that sends PPTX presentations from windows machines with embedded PDFs of relevant files. They do this so that the appropriate file can be discussed with the relevant slide. We are a Mac based organization and PAY for Office 365 for Business. Powerpoint on a Mac doesn't read PDFs embedded into PPTX presentations…

  13. Slideshow to Chromecast

    We would like to use Chromecast for a lot of our sharing of documents. Often we use Google Docs/Sheets/Slides because of their easy way they can be casted to a screen. However, we use a lot of powerpoint presentations and will continue doing so. Having the ability to cast the slides to Chromecast (just like it's easily and conveniently possible with Google Slides) would be the best for us. Thanks!

  14. Enable marking of unfinished slides in the slide preview pane

    It is sometimes difficult to keep track of which slides are completed and which still need work. The ability to highlight unfinished slides in the slide preview pane would be invaluable

  16. Add the ability to insert field codes to the slide footer such as filename

    When inserting a slide footer it would be nice if the feature would function similar to Word. For example, in Word you can add field codes to automatically add a filename to the footer. Today, Word, Excel and Powerpoint all use different ways to create headers and footers. It would be great i they all shared some consistency for this feature.

  17. Better ribbon and toolbar and customization needed

    The 'auto focus' of your toolbars and side panels is not intuitive at all to my workflow (it rarely focuses on the toolbar/bin i want for any given task, forcing me to wade every time through the ribbon or sidebar for each task).

    The current method of toolbar customization (vr 15.26, mac) is tedious, buggy, and resists my attempts to build new toolbars. Rather than allow the user to customize the existing bins to work with the auto focus, PPT forces the user to create their own custom ribbon bins, and therefore build an entirely new set of toolbars from…

  18. Format multiple tables at a time

    When I have multiple tables on a slide I want to be able to select all of them and make the same change to each one.

    When I try and do this I can only see the "Shape Format" tab instead of the "Table Design" and "Table Layout" tab.

  19. Keyboard shortcuts increase/decrease font size to work on scandinavian keyboard similar to PC

    Powerpoint has a a lot of keyboard shortcuts to format text and objects. Most work on mac properly, but with scandinavian keyboard there is an issue with the keyboard shortcut to increase and decrease font size.

    With US keyboard the command is cmd + shift + < or >.
    But in the scandinavian keyboard the < and > symbols are on the same key. This makes it impossible to use shortcut to make the font smaller because pressing the shift-key is required with the shortcut. (see the keyboard images attached for more details.)

    When the US keyboard has "<" and…

  20. Rounded corners on tables

    When designing tables you don't have the option to change the corners instead of making them always square. I think it would be great to have more options for tables, etc.
