  6. Fix bug please: Closing presentation mode BUG ALWAYS returns you to one of the other open PPT files, not the one you were presenting. UGH.

    Closing presentation mode ALWAYS returns you to one of the other open PPT files on your computer, rather than the one you were presenting/working on. Current work-arounds are minimizing other open PPT files or only having one open at a time. Ugh.

  7. Disable shape auto-populate

    I found a glitch in PPT when using the “freeform” or “squiggle” tool in a later update (16.34). It seems the programmers changed the functionality as such that when you choose a shape from the menu (say, a square) it auto-populates, and then allows you to resize it from there. This is fine, I guess, (though honestly, it seems like an extra step to me.) The real problem is when you try to use any freeform/drawing tool, that behavior inherently disables the function of a freeform tool — seeing that, it can’t possibly know which shape you want, since you…

  8. Have a duplicate object with no offset

    I never want the duplicate to have both a vertical and a horizontal offset. If I want to make a small change to the object for an animation, or to rotate it with respect to the original, I want them aligned. Otherwise, I nearly always want it horizontally or vertically aligned with the original. I realize this would violate the convention that every action have a visible result, so the offset is a reasonable default for the beginner. However, I should have a setting to eliminate the offset (as in Inkscape).

  9. Unlimited "Undo" option - Total Loss of Undo States when Real-Time Collaborating

    When collaborating on a powerpoint doc, I frequently lose all my undo states when powerpoint auto-saves a new version. I have the max undo level set, yet the fact that this happens means frequently the undo button is totally useless. This is a huge pain point for our team.

    You can only hit "undo" X number of times.

  10. Sort files when opening from OneDrive

    when opening a file in Powerpoint/Excel/Word on Onedrive is very difficult to find the file is the folder has many files as there is no possibility to sort the files and have more info. size of column is fixed resulting in gutted names and ordering is preconfigured and not modifiable
    You need to have a similar pane for cloud file as for the local files

  11. Custom Pane Setup

    Have the ability to set any panes you want to be constantly available no matter what document you have open. Similar to workspaces in adobe programs.

  12. No-fill data point markers on line charts should knock out to background color

    Currently, when you have a marker on a line chart with a reasonable size, with a marker stroke but no marker fill, it shows the line intersecting the midpoint of the marker. Preferably, the lines would join to the outside of the marker, not the middle of the marker. Either that or have the marker fill knock out to the slide BG.

  13. PowerPoint build 20011301 still has broken shortcuts for OS X 10.15.3

    NOTE: This is not an idea, but a bug. Please advise on how should I report it if this is not the right place.

    After starting PowerPoint none of the shortcuts work, until the first interaction via the menu. Then it seems OK.

    Please fix, as it kills productivity.

  16. Margin values are honoured when a text box is copied from a different presentation (with a different theme)

    I've create a new powerpoint template for a client, but when they copy a text box from their old template into the new one, the margin values revert to Powerpoint's default even when 'Use destination theme' is selected.

  17. Automatically create ALT Text from IPTC data in file like in the caption field or other field

    I realize Powerpoint creates Alt Text based on what it sees in an image but this is not very accurate. I would like a way to have PP import the Caption (or other IPTC field that might be chosen) from the image automatically.

  18. Add CMYK picture warnings

    When many clients build presentations on the Mac, it allows them to insert images in the CMYK color space. They do NOT translate well to PC and either don't display or display poorly. Provide a warning that the image is CMYK and offer to convert to RGB.

  19. Use two adjacent letters for keystrokes to compress with one finger

    If you put 2 adjacent keys into keystrokes it makes it possible for one finger to press two keys with one finger. Group command uses Option and Command and these are side by side and one finger can quickly compress them.

    And allow users to make customs keystrokes to fit the special needs of the user.

  20. Adodb support in VBA on macOS

    I have developed some VBA Macros to support a Line of Business function that pulls data from SQL Server to update the weekly reports. Problem is ... these only work on Windows because of the ADODB ActiveX library. Am I missing something obvious that would let me get them working in PowerPoint for Mac as well ... if not, would love to see ADODB support (SQL Native Client v11 specifically) added... (though happy to re-write these however needed to get it working cross platform!)
