Allow ungrouping of charts for powerful design

It used to be possible with Powerpoint for the Mac to ungroup charts from Excel. This was a crucial power feature to customize and design charts beyond the fixed default format of Excel. A very useful function indeed.

Unfortunately, this is no longer possible on the Mac even though using the Enhanced Metafile format it still seems to work on Windows.

Bring back chart ungrouping, so we can make professional and personal charts again using Powerpoint. Excel and PPT formats are too limited and don't satisfy the requirements of many companies and publishers. Re-enabling chart ungrouping would make Office much more flexible and powerful.

    Essential for people who do serious design with Powerpoint. Was very sad to see this feature broken without a warning or a careful look at its use.
