  1. Please allow MathType or similar equation editor to be integrated into powerpoint for mac

    The built in equation editor is not good. I would love microsoft equation 3.0 to be back. Either that or equation editors like MathType should be made integrable in powerpoint. I wish there were an integrated program to type in latex equation into powerpoint.

  4. Improve Accessibility during Presentation Mode

    I love how much PowerPoint on Mac became accessible in a short period of time!
    I'm on fast track 15.39 (170919), and I have some suggestions to make it easier for Voiceover user to use PowerPoint during presentation mode.
    1. Presenter view:
    Voiceover doesn't seem to be able to read the content of slides during presenter view. It just says image.
    2. Highlight:
    Visually Impaired users cannot use pointer, so it would be great if the texts are editable during the presentation, so we can bold, highlight, and so on during the presentation to emphasize. WE can do it while…

  5. Allow drag-and-drop of PDF images from other software (notably LaTeXiT for better equation creation).

    You used to be able to drag equations from LaTeXiT directly into PowerPoint in the 2011 version in PDF format so they scaled nicely on different screens and projectors and could be re-sized with no loss of quality. This is broken in 2016, and never worked prior to the 2011 version. It would be even better if such elements could be dragged in-line, but that may be asking a little much.

  6. Track Changes

    Despite the availability of the "Track Changes" feature in both Word and Excel, PowerPoint continues to lag behind on this development, forcing authors/creators to use the wholly inadequate "Compare" feature.

    For those of us who use PowerPoint in the research world, having the ability to update and edit slides while using a Track Changes feature is essential in order to ensure that our data, references, and images are current and accurate. It also allows for others within the authoring process to check and edit our work, while allowing us to properly accredit them for their changes/edits.

    At this point, it's…

  9. Allow a custom style preset library for type and objects that include colors, gradients, effects etc.

    I'd love to create a style set for a template that has more complex attributes and could be applied by clicking on it in a palete rather than having to do the "Copy Style" "Paste Style" from objects on other pages.

    For instance, like 8 object styles that I'd reuse for a particualr client across multiple presentations. It woucl be great to be able to embed it in the template to make it easy for them to apply consitent styles more easily.

  11. Edit notes in real time while in Presenter View mode

    Really need a easy to insert "whiteboard" or dynamic text box function that would allow you to type notes for the group to see during lectures. Please, this could be like an insert object function (insert whiteboard)

  12. Allow inserting images as links from a folder which could be auto-updated

    Allow inserting images as links from folder, so that slides could be updated with one click when images are updated in the folder.

  13. Ability to group tables with other elements (Shapes, Images, Text boxes)

    I often use invisible tables with text in them and would love to be able to group those table to other PPT elements such as shapes or text boxes. Right now, a group can include almost everything in PPT except tables, so this causes some heartache...

  15. Support text wrapping around image

    Please include the above capability. It's essential in this software and has been in all other versions or Word and, I believe, PPT.

  16. Using a text character (ex. K) as an animation to advance to a specific slide

    allow a user to apply a key, example the "F" key, that then will hyperlink to a specific slide without using the mouse

    example:
    "t" key jumps to slide 5
    "k" key jumps to slide 7...

  17. Reapply notes master to all slides

    You need to provide the ability to reapply notes master to all slides in PowerPoint for Mac. This is available on Windows PowerPoint. It can be a tremendous amount of work to apply new layout to each individual note in a large already existing presentation.
