  1. embed fonts

    Allow powerpoint for mac to support embedded fonts like on windows and previous versions. It makes the format a lot more portable that way, otherwise we end up having to only use pdf files to share.

    • EMBED FONTS

      I want to throw my computer out the window every single time I have to create a powerpoint presentation and suddenly remember I can't embed fonts after I've spent hours perfecting my presentation using fonts that are specific to my computer. If this issue isn't fixed soon, I'm going to have to find an alternative to Powerpoint. This has been a major problem for me, and really the ONLY major problem I've run into after switching from a PC to a Mac.

      • Allow embedding live web pages in PPT for Mac

        Put simply, beyond embedding video (e.g., YouTube), it's crucial to allow embedding a live webpage on slides - not just a hyperlink, but a secure interactive page.

        There are many reasons - teaching, grabbing the latest news or stock information, etc.

        This is *already* possible in Windows..

        It's possible in Office 2013 on Windows to embed a live (secure) website into PowerPoint (http://speakingpractically.com/2015/06/01/need-to-show-a-website-while-you-present-two-quick-tricks-using-powerpoint/). There's also been a *very* popular Add-In (LiveWeb - http://skp.mvps.org/liveweb.htm)

          • Ability to trim a video!

            PLEASE add ability to trim a video (I just bought PPT, love it, but am shocked that I can't trim a video while those on a PC can)

            • export narrated powerpoint to video

              This seems to be something thats been voted upon, and had been "completed". However, there is not a hint of the narration in the exported video. Please add!!

              • Please restore Office Mac 2011 feature to import individual slides from other pptx/ppt files

                In Office 2011, when you 'import slides' from another ppt presentation, you get a slide finder box that allows you to select which slide(s) you want, and whether or not you want the slide(s) to stay in original format.

                Now, in Office 2016, when you request an import, there is no slide finder box to chose which slides you want, and no box to check off to retain format. I can only import the entire other presentation, be it one, or one hundred slides, and you lose your original formatting.

                I generate dozens of pptx files and I often import…

                      • Draw table

                        In insert table there is no possibility to draw it, as in Word.

                        I must say I am really deceived with Office Mac 2016. Office Mac 2011 was more complete. Why don't keep same functions?

                        Best regards,

                        Peter

                        • Animation Triggers for Mac PowerPoint

                          When creating presentations, it would be really useful to be able to set up Triggers for animations. Would be very practical for use in classrooms, or in self guided presentations

                            Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion, but this is not something that we will plan for this year. However, we do know that there is a need for this functionality on PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, so we will try to see when we can work on it. Thanks!

                                    Why are some features left out of office for Mac? I am taking an introduction to computers class, and am unable to do everything in most assignments due to the fact that Office for Mac has left out a lot of features, such as cropping video.

                                      I'm in the situation of having to merge the work of two editors that worked on two different copies of the same slide deck. It would be great if the software could do the comparison for me and show me what's been changed.

                                        • Allow powerpoint to trim audio.

                                          Please add the ability to trim audio and videos. It saves a bunch of time.
