  1. Save as svg for macos

    I love Powerpoint for macOS as a tool to create illustrations that I need in .svg format - but every time I create a new illustration, I have to find a Windows PC somewhere to be able to save the illustration in .svg format.

    Pleas add the ability to save as .svg to macOS version of Powerpoint

  2. flexible reveal item while presenting

    I often like to talk with my students about topics which I prepare in a form of a list with bullet points having a no particular order, If my students name one of the bullet points, I like to reveal just this particular bullet point. So I would love to see a way to reveal bullet points not just in a particular order but also revealing them by a click for example at the presenter screen.

  3. You don't have an option to record a laser pointer in a PowerPoint 365 presentation on the Mac.

    You need to give the Mac version the same capability as the Windows. Also, you need to have instructions on how to do it with a trackpad.

  5. slide content assets retaining their filename data

    Would it be a good idea to be able to retain the filename data of images that have been inserted as pictures, pasted in from the clipboard, added as part of a formatted background, or added to a master slide? So rather than having to randomly search and try to remember what the images were in order to make edits or compile them as part of a themed toolkit, they could be easily packaged up into an assets folder. Thanks!

  7. PPTX compatibility - Office 365 Mac > Office 365 Windows

    .PPTX files (fonts embedded) saved in Office 365 for Mac are not displayed properly when opened in 365 for Windows. (fonts, tables, themes, text formatting & backgrounds) .ppt version also displays similarly.

  8. Make it easier to add icons to smart art lists

    Please make it easier to add icons to smart art via the lightning bolt menu that sometimes appears next to graphic boxes. I want to add the icons as 'smart art' not static graphics, so they will fit the color theme etc, but accessing the menu seems practically impossible-- it appears sometimes but mostly not. Help!

  9. PLEASE enable presenter view to open in a window, not full screen only.

    Very similar to another suggestion. When I present over Zoom, I want to use Presenter View and see my Zoom window of participants at the same time. But because Presenter View is only in Full Screen Mode, whenever I click into it, my Zoom window disappears, so I cannot see my participants when I am presenting. Currently, PPT enables "open in a window" in regular slide show mode. But what is needed is Open in a Window for Presenter View mode, also!! Then I can potentially use split-screen and have the two applications (PPT and Zoom) running at the same…

  11. Create a way to improve closed caption accuracy on PowerPoint

    In the realm of accessibility, it is EXTREMELY important that accurate live-auto captioning software be available for creating transcripts during a presentation. I have been working with this software, and the accuracy is fairly good, but it consistently gets a few "difficult" words wrong. One solution I thought of would be a communication between the words on the slide and the live captions, so the software can learn how to recognize key words and spell them correctly. Or, if you could add words to the "dictionary" on Microsoft, and then the software would understand how to spell it. This is…

  12. Allow user to customize workspace in PowerPoint.

    For example, the default active slide highlighting color is orange. If you are working with a slide theme that has an orange border, it is very difficult to see it. Many Apple-designed programs allow user to customize their workspace environment. Would be nice to see that in PowerPoint.

    It would be great if PowerPoint for Mac could record the screen like the Windows version can.

  16. BUG:Before the presentation, I manually adjust the transition to the next slide and, even so, it advances to the next slide after some time.

    Unfortunately, I could not find out this procedure: click “File”, then “Feedback”, then“Send a Frown” in PowerPoint.

    So, I report that bug here.

  18. Right click align tool please

    Right clicking on an object, text box or image is second nature for designers. On Mac Powerpoint it is difficult to hunt for the Align icon on the menu bar every time, and interrupts what could be a speedy workflow!
