        When you export a power point presentation as a video, which contains automatically playing videos on the slides, those videos won't run in the exported video. They are shown as stills.

        • Paste Special Linked water fall graph from excel to Powerpoint.

          With the new Waterfall Graph in excel you can not paste a linked graph into Powerpoint.

          • Embed background music (audio) when exporting slideshows

            After incorporating MP3 audio file into a PowerPoint slideshow the music does not get exported in either MP4 or MOV format on Office 365 or PowerPoint 2016. Will need to use iMovie. Huge waste of my valuable time.

            • Zoom

              I use Office 2016 and have a 365 for business account. Yet sadly I do have the Zoom button at all. I'm a school teacher and would love to teach them how to do this. A bit upsetting.

              Perhaps I'll have to teach them Prezi instead

                • Add an Auto fit option to Notes text

                  For all versions of PPT - provide an “Auto Fit” option for notes on all slides to help prevent the need to scroll just for one line of notes. Or provide more robust notes formatting.

                  • 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.

                    • Option for a FULL uninstallation of Office/PowerPoint

                      Some bugs could easily be solved by a full un- and re-installation of Office or a sub-product such as PowerPoint.
                      However, right now, when doing an uninstall, many user-specific settings are kept on the hard-drive and reloaded after re-installing.

                      It would be very useful to get the option to do a FULL/COMPLETE uninstallation, including for instance all Office's setting-related files. Ideally, for such a full uninstall, the user should still get the possibility to keep some manually selected files/directories, such as his/her templates.

                      This feature request is linked to the following two other requests:
                      - https://powerpoint.uservoice.com/forums/288925-powerpoint-for-mac/suggestions/15152913-better-uninstall-instructions

                      • Option to restore Office default settings

                        Some bugs can be solved simply by restoring the default settings of Office. It would be very convenient to have an easy option to do so.

                        Right now, restoring the defaults requires to manually delete several files/directories, such as:
                        ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office
                        ~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.office.plist
                        ~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.{Word,PowerPoint,Excel,...}.plist

                        A "restore defaults" option would be all the more useful as there is no option so far for a full uninstall of office. Right now, when doing an uninstall/re-install, the user settings are maintained: user-setting related bugs thus cannot be solved by an uninstall-reinstall.
                        (On the long-run, it would also be useful to get the option to…

                                    It absolutely EVADES my understanding of (software) design concepts as of WHY is every measurement in centimeters (or inches), not in pixels. Is the reason for this softwares existence printing out the presentations (easily measured in cm) OR is it actually for presenting them on screen space (quite impossible to measure in cm)? Which one is it, I'm confused...

                                      • Add "Number Styles" in Text Effects

                                        Please bring over the additional “Text Effect” options over from Word, specifically Number Styles. I have to use this setting when working with numbers in my Company’s font or else numbers are the wrong size.

                                        • Bug that effects stroke width and text kerning for printing or PDF printing

                                          Ever since the update to 16.15, when I try to print or print to PDF, the stroke lines in my document display as extremely thick. The kerning in my text is also very low. Currently working with Teir 2 support to figure out why this is happening.
