  1. Add dot/tab leaders

    This is a really basic feature that programs like InDesign and even Word (in your own eco-system) have. Many of the clients I build decks for request Tables of Contents in their presentations, and this would be very helpful in formatting them. Please add this, MS.

  4. Quick Flip Flop/Swap Locations

    It would be great to have the ability to quickly grab/highlight two items and be able to flip flop them or swap their locations. For example if I had two images and I only wanted to switch the locations of them without having to manually move them I could highlight both images and hit a button that says "swap"

  7. Add the countdown when recording a slideshow

    When a user clicks "Record Slide Show" it just takes you to the Record Slide Show screen already recording. This is no countdown like on PC. On PC you click you click the Record button inside the Record Slide Show screen and a 1,2,3 countdown occurs.

  8. Format pane remembers last settings

    It would be very helpful to have the format and task panes default to their last state (format pane open and last-used task panes open). So when you opened a new document your format pane and last-used tasks panes would automatically be open. That would save several clicks necessary to open format pane again, then each task pane you need as well. If all were closed from last use, they would be closed when opening a new document.

  9. Forum Categories

    Why is 'Charting' the only category in this forum?
    Doesn't make much sense to me, what's the thought behind this?

    Maybe, if you would give users better opportunities to categorize their feedback, it would be easier for you to look at it and actually implement suggestions.

  10. More fluid animations

    I get that powerpoints animation features are not build for excessive use and if you have tons of animated objects on one slide you will run into issues. But currently for me I start to get issues even from only 3 animated objects.
    The animations start off right, but then get stuck for about 4 seconds and everything appears at once. It is not an issue of the timing or setup, as when trying to view it different times it is always different and sometimes it works as expected.

    Would be great to see some improvement on the displaying of…

  15. Videos for Presentations converted to PDFs

    I'd like to add screen recordings to my presentations to show a content that is not accessible by any online link.

    Powerpoint gives us the option to import a video file from computer.

    In my PPT file I can perfectly edit and place any video files ( in correct format) and play them as I am going through my slides. All content is available and show perfectly. This is great for in person presentations.

    However, what happens after the meeting when you want to send an e-mail of the document you had just presented ?

    Well, not much !

    When…

  16. Have the ability to set default view regardless of what the presentation was last saved as

    When a presentation is saved in a different view, on a Mac it opens in this view. In Windows, you can set the default view for how the presentation will open regardless of how it was previously saved. This would be a great option for Macs as well.

  19. customizable ribbons please (in non 365 versions too!)

    Would like to be able to customize my ribbon. Here is my best example:
    --I often use animations in slide
    --I use the "fade" animation 95% of the time
    --It rarely shows up in the 4 visible entrance animations until after I've used it for a while, but then inconsistently
    --Therefore, I must hover over the "down arrow" to display the whole menu of effects and get to it.
    --I would like to be able to peg the "fade" entrance in the first position, which would save loads of time.
    Thanks for you consideration!

  20. Version History View to show what actually changed

    The version history list currently shown by going to File > "Browse Version History" is only relatively useful. It needs to show directly on the slides the changes that have been made for each version. For what I mean, just look at what Google is doing in its Sheets, Slides, Docs. So much better and more useful.
