  1. 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.

    • 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?

      • 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…
