  1. Record Slide Show video file VFR issues

    When using the Record Slide Show feature on Mac. The exported mp4 or mov file is variable frame rate (vfr). The resulting file if played in VLC or used with ffmpeg the audio and video are out of sync. If you use mediainfo in text mode, you will see the source duration and clip duration are different times. The longer the video the worse the time slip.

    J'utilise en Macbookair 2017 et sur powerpoint 2019, lorsque l'on clique sur un lien hypertexte renvoyant vers un fichier autre qu'un powerpoint, celui-ci s'ouvre mais ne s'affiche pas au premier plan ce qui oblige à sortir du diaporama pour y accéder.

  8. Adding a history toolbar drop down menu for last 10-15 commands / actions

    In creating slides for an image filled teaching lecture would like to access my last actions because they usually repeat for each slide I make. I think a drop down button showing last options would be useful to me. Once there was a box with image manager where size, position, crop were on in one place

    Enable the "features" of an OpenType font. Especially the "Number Spacing" feature is really important to line up in tabular form

  11. Bring the file menu from PC on all Microsoft Office applications

    On the PC version of Microsoft office the file menu in the ribbon should be brought over to Mac as it will make both version equal. And it looks better.

  12. Keep Powerpoint animation going (active screen) when selecting other application

    In this new normal more and more online customer meetings are being done. I use powerpoint with animated clock countdown timers and integrated music at for instance the beginning and coffee breaks of the meetings. I start up slide mode and everything starts as it suppose to. I am using Teams to share it with customers by selecting window and then the powerpoint application. So far so good.

    My problem is that as soon as you select another application on your screen by clicking on it the powerpoint animation and music stops until you activate the powerpoint application again. This…

  13. Please include the compress media option to PowerPoint for Mac

    The Windows version of PowerPoint has the option to compress media files in a presentation, but the Mac version doesn't
    This kind of differences degrades the quality of the product, there should be function parity across platforms

  15. can't insert .avi video into powerpoint 2019 for Mac

    I couldn't insert .avi video into powerpoint 2019 for Mac these days.

    it shows a message like this:
    'PowerPoint cannot insert a video from the selected file. Verify that the path and file format are correct, and then try again.'

    But it worked not long ago when I handled my work with powerpoint 2016 embedded Flip4Mac.

    I just wonder why this happen and how to resolve this problem.

  20. Powerful features for designers using PPT

    Please have your developers use and become proficient at a basic graphic design program. Graphic designers by and large are your primary users and happen to use software that has a designer's logic to it. Powerpoint's basic functionality and workflow consistently ignores this "best practice" development approach and causes so many discontinuities (read: Frustration) that if it wasn't so maddening it would be laughable. That said, there are some basic things that would make the program more user friendly:
