  1. PowerPoint 2011 does play OK but PowerPoint 2016 does not play movies

    PowerPoint 2011 does play OK but PowerPoint 2016 does not play movies.

    In summary, PowerPoint 2011 plays the movie on both original ".ppt" and saved as ".pptx" without deleting and inserting it, yet PowerPoint 2016 does not, unless I delete the movie and insert it again. Any idea to fix the PowerPoint 2016 issue other than deleting and inserting again the movie? As said I have hundreds of movies on many PowerPoint files and doing it on a one-by-one movie basis would take months or work! Thanks.

    More information and files to download and reproduce the issue:

    Cannot play ".mov"…

    • Fix the font issues.

      I am the designer on my team and I use a mac. I need to be able to trust that when I create a presentation for our salespeople that it will look the same as when it left my machine. They use PC's.

      Your software should work the same and look the same on both platforms. Presently, there are font size differences between the two AND I can't embed fonts. I realize that your software caters to people who may or may not have any sense of design, but if you want the design community to adopt PowerPoint as a…

      • DAMN FONT EMBEDDING

        Why isn't embedding font an option? This leaves people forced to wear this abysmal yoke of a program nothing but garbage font choices.

          • A way to get multiple slides to all show the same number.

            PowerPoint suggestion: Sometimes the easiest way to do a complex set of animations for a slide is to continue over multiple slides. In that case, it would be good if there were a way to get those slides to all show the same number.

            • keyboard shortcut to insert equation

              There is no keyboard shortcut to insert equation in PowerPoint for Mac version 16.8. Please add a shortcut, or add a menu item so users can set the shortcut in macOS System Preferences

              • Embed Powerpoint Presentation as object in a Powerpoint Presentation

                In Powerpoint on a PC, you can embed a Powerpoint presentation as an object into another Powerpoint presentation. You can't do it on a Mac. You can only embed an excel or Word doc, not a powerpoint. That's crazy! I've suggested this a year ago and nothing has happened with it. It is a real problem. I have to hold on to my old PC just to embed a powerpoint file for my clients. Please, please, please fix this

                • De verdad alguien ha pensado que esto no era importante!

                  Haces una presentación de lujo y cuando vas a presentarla en el ordenador de la Universidad, te sale un churro porque no puedes incrustar las fuentes utilizadas. Eso sí, luego cantidad de actualizaciones que no sabes para que sirven.

                  • Wish PowerPoint had field codes, especially SEQ, as Word does.

                    I like to reference, at the bottom of slides, the corresponding page number in a workbook. Right now I have to do by hand what I do in Word with the SEQ field code and my own variable.

                    When I delete/add pages in the workbook, I have to manually update the corresponding page numbers on the slides by hand. When you have a 200 slide deck, that can be very annoying. If there was a SEQ field code, then I could just "update fields" as I do in word and the work would be done!

                      Shameful for a company as big and profitable as Microsoft to be so petty with such an important feature.

                      Please add this BASIC feature to Office for Mac

                        • Find a way to reduce file size in PowerPoint 2016

                          When I create a presentation with PowerPoint 2016 the file is 2 to 3 times larger than in PowerPoint 2011. I spent nearly 2 hours with support to no avail. I have to open the file with Keynote, reduce the size and then export back to PowerPoint. The file I just finished was 10 MB compared to 36 MB for the original. I don't know how you would fix this, but please try!

                                Allow ability to insert and edit scalable vector graphics (SVG) files into your documents on Mac. I used to be able to insert .emf files and then ungroup them into shapes which I could edit. It's very frustrating that there is no option for this now on the Mac.

                                    Wenn sie ihr Produkt auf für Mac Kunden zur Verfügung stellen, sollten sie im Interesse ihrer Zufriedenen Kunden die gleiche Funktionen auch für diese bereitstellen. Es ist ein absolutes NO GO diese Strategie, im Bezug auf Mac Kunden, weiter zu verfolgen.

                                    Die Funktionen „Schriften einbetten“ und „einfügen von eps/svg Grafiken“ sind da nur zwei Beispiele welche für mich als Mac Kunde vor unlösbare Hürden stellen. Sie haben nicht nur mich als unzufriedenen Kunden, zusätzlich bekommen sie auch meinen Kunden der negativ auf sie zusprechen ist, da dies immer auf das nicht funktionierende Produkt zurückfällt. Deshalb sollten sie in ihrem Interesse…
