  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.

  3. Define 'default text style' for charts

    PowerPoint automatically sets the text style in charts to about 30% brighter off Text/Background Dark 1, and this is not part of the theme colors. I understand it's designed for it to be somewhat visible on both dark and light backgrounds, but it's making the charts details out of place design-wise; off-theme, off-brand.

    Please allow us to set the formatting as a Master, thanks!

  4. Create different paths through a deck in Screen show for different people.

    People often build decks for use my multiple different type of people - sales, technical, management etc but you still want them to use some common charts. Rather than build multiple decks it would be good to be able to define multiple paths through a deck depending on different needs. Simple mix could ask the person putting it in screen show, which path they want to take

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  15. 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.

  17. 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)

  19. Clickable checkbox function

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

  20. 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.
