  1. When exported to pdf, all images in slides have grey outline

    Recent issue I've noticed: Whenever I export my ppt file to PDF, all of the images I have included in the powerpoint have a grey outline around the image. It does not happen to any shapes I may have built in the pdf, only uploaded images.

  2. Please enable superscript when creating charts in PowerPoint

    When creating charts within PowerPoint and it launches into Excel, I can highlight the text in Excel and change the text to superscript and it looks correct in Excel but when it displays the formatted chart back in PowerPoint it is not superscript. Please fix this bug. Thanks.

  3. Please add ability to display data labels as percentages in 100% stacked column/bar charts (similar to pie charts).

    Other versions of PowerPoint have this capability but the 365 version for some reason does not. It should easily convert the raw data entered to a percent, just the way it does for pie charts.

  4. Allow for Audible speaker notes in powerpoint to make it more accessible

    I am Autistic, I struggle to make and follow notes, I don't think I am dyslexic but when I look at notes the words jump around, which causes me to lose my train of thought. Not having this feature limits the accessibility of the product to people that are blind, partially sighted, learning disabled, illiterate and Dyslexic. Being able to listen to an audio prompt on each slide would work much better for me and I'm sure other disabled people

  11. Allow Custom Quick Access Toolbar to be placed below ribbon like in PC (with short keys)

    PC QAT was a super efficient way to format slides and achieve uniformity across slides, presentations. It was placed right where one can simply click next to slide. Alternatively, one just had to memorize the custom shortkey (Alt+1, Alt +2 ...etc.)
    In Mac, the placement is odd, right at the top & needs too many clicks there to access options. Further, the shortcut keys require pressing 3 buttons to achieve what can be done by 2 simultaneous keys in PC.

  13. Clickable checkbox function

    Since there is no developer tab in ribbon, you cannot add a clickable box to slides. Please add.

  14. Enable changing source files of linked Excel charts from Powerpoint

    When an excel chart is inserted in powerpoint the data och the chart is linked to an excel spreadsheet.

    In the windows version it is possible to change the source file of the linked data. It is not possible to do this in powerpoint 2016 for Mac.

    Thanks for your feedback! The PowerPoint for Mac team is reviewing your suggestion and will consider it in future planning rounds.

    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 this is a feature that is important to you, be sure to give it a vote!

  15. Data links to Excel in powerpoint for mac 2011

    In powerpoint the paste chart options provide for:
    1 - paste chart with data linked to Excel (default)
    2 - Embed excel file in PPT
    3 - Paste picture

    I think we need to have two essential features:

    First the obvious one:
    4 - Paste chart WITHOUT data link to Excel (it is a mystery why this

    And since we now have so many inked charts in our PPT files now, we also need a solution (as in Windows) to review, edit and break data links to Excel. Can we really believe this is not in Office 2011 for Mac?

  18. Please add cluster stacked chart in the chart type

    Currently one can make either charts with clustered column/bar or stacked column/bars. Given Hierarchal chart are already introduced, can we expand that capability to give stacked columns that are also clustered?

    Use case example: Region-wise performance (X-axis) of different products (stacks in column), in current year vs previous year (cluster columns)

  20. Allow specific font search in font menu and apply changes to the selected text.

    To apply the specific font to text, one needs to go to font and search from drop-down menu instead of having it automatically.

    Need to have an auto select drop down with the fewer text of font name.

    Like when I enter "Arial N", it should display "Arial Narrow" font for easy selection.
