  1. Support ligatures in PowerPoint for macOS

    Just like Keynote or Word does it, ligatures such as "Fi" of "Ff" should be automatically formatted by PowerPoint on the Mac. Pretty much every font supports them. This being 21st century, text—especially in headings—looks unprofessional without ligatures.

  3. Vector files to PPT

    The design community readily relies on the MAC and Adobe Illustrator for designing, meaning entire page layouts, not just artwork/shapes. I have tried different conversion options for MAC AI to PPT and none work properly. The ability to convert an entire page, pulling over the artwork and text all at once, without disturbance to the layout would be a huge bonus to PPT capabilities.

  4. Allow user to set shadow default

    I find it ridiculous that you force every new object to have a shadow. Please add a preference item for the user to choose "no shadow" by default.

  5. Embed Powerpoint Presentation as object in a Powerpoint Presentation

    In Powerpoint on a PC, you can embed a Powerpoint presentation as an object into another Powerpoint presentation. You can't do it on a Mac. You can only embed an excel or Word doc, not a powerpoint. That's crazy! I've suggested this a year ago and nothing has happened with it. It is a real problem. I have to hold on to my old PC just to embed a powerpoint file for my clients. Please, please, please fix this

  6. 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.

  7. Enable Exportation of All PowerPoint Notes

    I think it would be great if one could export all PowerPoint notes to PDF when converting. Currently, if one exports a PowerPoint to PDF using a Mac, only the notes on the notes page will export. Any notes that run off the page will get cut off. However, if converting using a PC, those same notes will just be rolled over to another page. I think that PowerPoint for Mac should have the same capabilities as PowerPoint for PCs.

  8. Make SOME new transitions and animations - we've had the same options for 10+ years

    Just use Keynote or Prezi one time and you'll quickly see a long list of COOL transitions and animations. PPTX has had the same basic animations and transitions for more than 10 years. They're all very basic, and we've seen them all for years and years. I think PPTX would DOMINATE the market with a little design effort in this area

  11. Dynamic table of contents based on sections

    The idea is pretty simple and - I think - useful: auto-generate table of contents (ToC) based on the name of each section in PowerPoint.

    For example, you have three sections: introduction, sample projects, and further reading. The aut-ToC would allow you to insert a ToC including the names of each section, and e.g. the number of the first slide in that section (1,8,15), and potentially other info (e.g. number of slides in that section). As you add/remove/change the sections and their names, the ToC would adjust automatically.

    There would be different lay-outs for the ToC, e.g. with bullets points,…

  12. Please provide possibility to export powerpoint as mp4 on mac -with embedded video and narration

    After creating the whole presentation, to find out that this is not possible is, needless to say, a shock.

  14. Add the ability to insert field codes to the slide footer such as filename

    When inserting a slide footer it would be nice if the feature would function similar to Word. For example, in Word you can add field codes to automatically add a filename to the footer. Today, Word, Excel and Powerpoint all use different ways to create headers and footers. It would be great i they all shared some consistency for this feature.

  15. Cross platform issue: allow PPT file embedding in Word

    I see a number of word document with embedded PPT files. We should be able to edit embedded ppt slide in MS Word 2016 for Mac AND embed new pptx files on word too.

  18. Please put in show all slides on the presenter view

    So, for some reason the navigation pane on the presenter view will only show the first seven slides and then I can't see any of the slides. So if I want to go back to some slide, I don't know what to click on cause I can't see it. I will be able to do this if I can see all slides, or if the mac PowerPoint has a show all slides button/icon like windows. Please put it in!!!
