  1. Allow old clip art galleries to be used as photo browser for import picture

    I imported (as I was told to) Thousands of bought legitimate images into the old clip art gallery package. I need a way of retrieving these and their tags for current use

  3. Allow arrow weight to be 1 when line weight is 1.

    Currently the arrow on a line will not change weight with the line when the weight gets below 2. This makes for some awful-looking arrows!

  4. Easier text in table editing

    Using tables with text in cell is great to make "clean" boxes. However, today, we have to work 1 cell at a time.
    It would be easier however to select text in multiple cells and define formatting (bullet, font, indent, line spacing... )

    Also, I would love to have - like in Excel - a 45° text orientation on the first table raw.

  6. Saving a PowerPoint file should never be a problem - please fix asap

    Very often while working I get a notice that PowerPoint could not save the file. I then have to save it to a different file name or copy the slides to another PowerPoint slide - or lose all changes made.
    This is a horrable mistake. How can this happen? MS says the problem is known for week - well: when will this be finally solved???

  10. Can you add a preference to set the open dialog box by default to 'on my Mac'?

    In 2016, by default, the open dialog box is always presenting the "online view". We should be able to set a preference to have the standard 'open on my Mac and move online as an option. It's an extra click each time !

  11. Disable mouse scrolling.

    Allow a disable scrolling so when users are using a mouse with powerpoint, it doesn't scroll out of control with a Magic Mouse or other mice. It is insanely frustrating how it scrolls randomly out of control all the time.

  12. Space Bar Preview from slide sorter thumbnails

    Would love to be able to space bar on a thumbnail in slide sorter and have it expand just like the Mac behavior on an image in a finder window. Will save lots of clicks!

  14. Add the image browser for bing image searches to the Mac!

    Not being able to look up images is a huge inconvenience for mac users, especially those of us who work on many presentations at once.
