  1. Garbled Symbol font after opening file with PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

    Garbled Symbol font after opening file with PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.

    Font showed OK with PowerPoint 2016 version 15.19.1.160212 for Mac, but when the file is open with PowerPoint 2016 15.21.1.160411 for Mac they show garbled.

    Apple FontBook and FontGear FontDoctor find no problem. Mac OS X 10.11.4 (15E65) El Capitan.

    I have found that changing Symbol font by Symbol Tiger or Symbol Tiger Expert font fixes the issue and then font shows OK. Amazing!

    How to fix it to show OK also using Symbol font? Or is this a PowerPoint 2016 15.21.1.160411 for Mac bug?  In such a case, I hope it is fixed in next update. Thanks.

    • PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out.

      PowerPoint 365 for Mac has the Online Picture option grayed out. I tried adding it in Preferences, but it still did nothing. I like finding online clipart and backgrounds using this feature. When will it be implemented in the Mac version?

        • Make the color picker work!

          The color picker on PPT 2016 does not work. Clicking it does nothing, but once you exit the window the color picker appears. Clicking a color however, does not change the fill color.

          • Add a report a bug button

            How about a button where you can report bugs in your software? Given that your internet presence is to put it mildly: horrifyingly bad, why not add a button under the 'help' section where you can report a bug in your program. I do understand that it may look bad on the surface to have have a 'report a bug in our program' button as it implies that there are lot of bugs in the program. But once you discover one as a customer, it does really help you to further improve your software. In addition, it saves me from…

                • Allow opening presentations shared from OneDrive

                  As near as I can tell there is no way to open a presentation that has been shared with you through OneDrive for Business from within the Powerpoint 2016 client app. I am connected to my Office 365 account and can open my own docs from the cloud but the app cannot access documents in the "Shared with Me" tab. I have to go online, log in, find the shared presentation, and click Open in Powerpoint. Quite a few extra steps!
