        I agree with all the comments...PLEASE ADD TRIM AUDIO TO PP FOR MAC. Why wouldn't it be there already?

        Very disappointing that this feature isn't available in PowerPoint for Mac. Ridiculous that I have to revert to my old Windows machine to do this. So many features of Office for Mac seem substandard, except the price.

        Please add audio/video trimming tool because it is on windows devices and presentations are much more difficult to make without it

        Please consider adding the possibility to trim an audio in Power Point for Mac. It will be extremely helpful. Thank you.

        On the PC I have been able to trim a video for years, but to my dismay with my new Mac and new 2016 powerpoint it is not possible. Please fix

        I can't complete my presentation effectively without that tool. Audio trimming is so necessary.

        Unhappy with how outdates Mac's Microsoft is...ridiculous to pay this much and receive terrible software for it

        I am very disappointed that I cannot trim audio clips in Mac Power Point. I've watched videos of people using the Trim Audio button under Playback, but this option is no longer available! As a teacher this is very frustrating, as I would like to engage my auditory learners during lessons! Please fix quickly!

        For particularly long slides (with many animations) a single misspoken word near the end can require a complete re-recording of the whole slide ("take 27!"). It would be good to be able to edit arbitrary parts, but event the simple approach of pausing, rewinding a few seconds, and continuing recording, would be greatly appreciated.

        I switched from PC to Mac. When I had PC I would use powerpoint often to trim video & audio. Please make this option available 4 Mac.

        I won't be renewing my Office 365 subscription unless the trim feature is added to Powerpoint.
