  1. Syncing PPT with video to OneDrive shouldn't re-link to local files

    Links to video files in the same folder as the presentation should not store the full path as the presentation cannot be moved.

    I often edit on PC, sync presentation via onedrive to mac but then find I have to re-link the videos because the path cannot be found even though the videos are in the same folder as the presentation.

  4. Create different paths through a deck in Screen show for different people.

    People often build decks for use my multiple different type of people - sales, technical, management etc but you still want them to use some common charts. Rather than build multiple decks it would be good to be able to define multiple paths through a deck depending on different needs. Simple mix could ask the person putting it in screen show, which path they want to take

  5. 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.

  7. Sort slides by date edited

    A slide-level time stamp. Review changes in large or shared presentations. Perhaps a slide-level Edit History panel or "last 5 slides edited" would be nice.

  10. Apply a master templates across 500+ presentations

    Please rethink master templates...


    • Make easy to manage and deploy master template iterations and across a landscape of 500+ presentations (HTML?, CSS?)


    • Text boxes with multiple typographic styles such as paragraphs, lists, tables, h1 - h4. This way the text box in the template can define alignment, position, and breath-ability across more design patterns. (Think web content management)

  11. Transparency for shapes and groups (multiple components)

    For shapes it is currently possible to adjust the transparency of the fill, the outline and the included text. However, to my knowledge there is still no option to adjust the transparency of the shape including fill, outline and text as such. This is despite the fact that this effect would be very useful to guide the audience from one element to another on different slides. Often this is achieved by semi transparent overlays and , but really that is just a mediocre workaround. Another, better, workaround is adding a transparency animation right from the start of a slide, but…

  16. Add the ability to ungroup vector objects in Powerpoint so that they can be editable!

    In previous versions we could import .emf files and ungroup them so that they could be edited. Why was this functionality removed???

    This is very important as my clients like to be able to modify the icons I design for them, to change colours, etc. It was very frustrating that I was able to do this previously, but now can't!

    I can now import SVG files and change the colour in Powerpoint, but I can't ungroup the object into parts so it's fully editable, why is this?

    I now have to use Open Office, import .emf files, 'break' the object,…

  17. Export Powerpoint to video with music (not referring to narrations)

    When will we be able to export a presentation to .mp4 or .mov with music from iTunes and then be able to hear the music on the video. This is such a basic need. There is a "completed" request with over 1,000 requests to be able to record narration and export to video, there are many comments referring to a need for the ability to export with audio not only narrations). Office 365 so disappointed.

  18. 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.

  19. Include Activex support for powerpoint for Mac

    Power point for Mac lacks Activex functionality. In an education setting this means that powerpoints from windows do not function correctly when presenting to students on a Mac.

    Microsoft, as you are now targeting the education market with various products and services why not include support for Activex macros in powerpoints on a Mac? In real education settings there is a mixture of windows and mac os users (teachers and students).

    Regards.

  20. Create a new type of grouping called Matrix

    As a marketing professional, I often use slides that show a group view of partners/customers displaying their logos. Like a matrix.

    I tried to do it with a table but, unlike in Word, it is not possible to paste a picture inside a table cell, only to set it as a background for the cell, which is part of the formatting and does not allow for easy reallocation using copy/paste

    Every time a new partner has to be added/removed, I have to manually rearrange the entire matrix of logos, and then realign vertically and horizontally. It is very time consuming.
