  4. Allow us to hide the ribbon tabs

    If we've hidden the ribbon, we're clearly not needing to use it, so it makes zero sense not to also let us hide the ribbon tab.

  6. Make file dialogs come up in last directory used for that dialog

    The best example for this is when I am adding a Picture from a file. The file picker dialog box always comes up in the same directory, Documents. Every single time I have to change it to my directory where all of my images are.

    It would be great if a particular dialog box opened in the same directory you last went to with it.

  7. Please add new Charts Found in Windows 2016 Version

    The Windows version of Powerpoint has some great new chart types: https://blogs.office.com/2015/07/02/introducing-new-and-modern-chart-types-now-available-in-office-2016-preview/

    Please add them to the Mac Version! We paid the same price as our PC friends! If you have to prioritize, please start by adding the waterfall chart feature.

    Thanks for listening

  9. automated index/table of content

    An automatical index in the same way as in „Word“ would be saving lots of time.

    If with a click on an option, PP would take all the titles automatically and put them in a list with the page numbers. Would be also great to have the option to format this index individually, after it is set up by the application.

  10. Please let me resize a shape as I wish

    Powerpoint for Mac (Office 365) doesn't let me resize a shape as I wish - it is very annoying to try to resize a shape for example according to the text that's already there when it won't let me. Also I couldn't find the feature of making the fill color transparent, I'm sure it's there but just impossible to find.

  13. Add the formula editor to the menu again

    At the moment, the formula editor in Powerpoint is not available using the traditional menu "Insert > Formula". You can only add a formula using the button which is available in one of the ribbons.

  16. Hotkeys to move bullets up or down

    Mac users should be able to move bullets up or down in a list with a hotkey like PC users can with Alt-Shift-Right and Alt-Shift-Left.

    At a minimum, give us a way to add the Move Up and Move Down commands to a PowerPoint menu so we can use the Mac OS functionality to create the hotkey. (and Promote, Demote, so we don't have to use the tab key which doesn't work to Promote when the cursor is in the middle of a line)

    Currently the menu items only exist in Outline View on the pop-up menu when you right-click.
