  1. Need ability to create custom Theme fonts like we can on PC

    In all Office for Mac programs, we currently have the ability to change the global Theme or Theme Colors or Theme Fonts.

    Additionally, we can create custom Theme Color Sets in PowerPoint for Mac, which will flow to all the other Office for Mac programs. But we currently don't have the ability to create a custom Font Set in any of the Office for Mac programs. The workaround is to create the Font Set in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint on a PC (if you have one or you have to ask a friend) and THEN you have to copy that…

  7. A way to span a video loop over multiple slides. Please please please!

    I use short loops as a background for slides. If I insert the video in each slide, then there is a jerking action as you change slides. However, if it were possible to span multiple slides with the same loop the the video could move smoothly throughout the series of slides.

  8. Like windows PLEASE!

    I like when you control the window in fullscreen you can see the buttons (to control the window) without having to move the cursor up of the screen.

  10. Custom slideshow improvements

    The functionality for custom slide show is very far from usable, at least on Mac, and I would like to suggest the following improvements:

    When adding more slides to a custom show, they are always placed at the end. It should be possible to define where to put the new slides, simply by selecting one of the slides already present - the added slides then should be placed directly after this slide in succession.

    It should be possible to add multiple slides in one go.

    When removing slides, the list should stay in place, instead of bumping to the top.

  12. I do a lot of PowerPoint presentation during class and my issue is this. During the slideshow I will right click the screen and set the Poin

    I do a lot of PowerPoint presentation during class and my issue is this. During the slideshow, I will right-click the screen and set the Pointer Option to pen to draw on the slide. if I go to the next point or change the slide the pen option and the colour changes to an arrow. Is there a way to freeze pen option and the ink colour even after changing the slide

    I should be able to autosave locally instead of being forced to use some cloud service.

  14. make it possible to erase all speaker notes and create a new copy

    Students often want copies of my powerpoint slides, but I don't want to give them a copy that includes my speaker notes. In older versions of MacOS, I used a small program someone had written, but it doesn't work with new MacOS systems. Could you please make it an option to save powerpoints without the speaker notes? thanks.

  18. Infographic Icon Lists

    It would be super cool to have an in-built icon list generator for info graphics that could possibly plug into the smart art section. It's a little bit like one-item histograms.

    For example: Have a generator that lets us pick an icon to use to represent count of something, then enter the count, and automatically generate X number of icons arranged neatly beside a header based on total count.

    Something like this: https://visual.ly/community/Infographics/science/how-many-people-have-ever-been-born

  20. Document System Calls

    Office on the Mac uses many proprietary calls to dylib libraries that duplicate Windows System libraries. Office for Mac programmers could expand the range of services to macOS clients if Microsoft would document these libraries. Please hire a couple of competent people to make this possible.
