    Thanks for your feedback! Though PowerPoint for Mac 2016 does not include a dedicated Developer tab like PowerPoint for Mac 2011, the developer tools are still available.

    These tools can be found here:
    - Editor: Choose the Tools | Macro | Visual Basic Editor option
    - Macros: Choose the Tools | Macro | Macros… option
    - Add-Ins: Choose the Tools | Add-Ins… option

    Remember, this site helps us to prioritize our backlog so the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. If having a dedicated Developer tab is important to you, be sure to give it a vote!

        This function is essential for business and building forms.

        Please add a developer tab... I need it for macro development and I want whatever I create to work for both macs and PCs. I use both at work and need the consistency

        I am starting to develop an app that must run under PowerPoint. The developer tab provides consistency between windows and mac versions.

        I beg your pardon, but the Administrateur response must be a joke!? I've tried it, no way to find ALL the developper's possibilities we previously had. Is that a progress? (I am very angry with Microsoft)

        I still don't understand why the Developer Tab disappeared. Microsoft love to turn his regular clients crazy ?

        I need a way to keep elements in my master slide on top.

        I want to be able to place a picture and keep the logo in my master slide on top.
        I want it the easiest way to control an easy and correct use by colleagues
