  2. Autofit table contents for powerpoint

    In Microsoft Word there is an option to autofit table contents, which adjusts the table columns and rows to fit the text.
    This option is not available in Powerpoint.
    Could you please add this feature.

  4. URGENT : Problem since last UPDATE : VIDEO QUALITY

    There is a big problem with Video Quality when I import a Video on my PPT. I have been doing that for years...

    I have check everything and the problem is from PPT, the initial video works well with high quality but I can see "pixel" when played from PPT.

    Please could you give me a quick answer about that ?
    Best,

  5. Allow video recording with PowerPoint, like can be done with PC's

    It would be helpful to videotape a PowerPoint presentation (video and audio) with a MacBook Air. PC's allow this, but evidently it is not compatible with Mac's. I can only do an audio recording with my slides. Will this be something worked on for the future? Thank you.

  6. Add ability for users to choose light or dark mode of ppt and excel when mac is set at dark mode

    When using the ppt, excel or word,the main part of the screen is almost light colour or at least not always the dark colour. In this occasion, we may prefer the UI is also at a lighter color instead of the present darker one even though the mac is at a dark mode.

  9. Export PDF as handouts as you can on windows.

    On windows you can export your powerpoint, with the notes to the side, as a PDF file. This is excellent for students and revision. Why I cannot do this on mac I do not know, but would appreciate it being added as an option.

  11. Please provide possibility to export powerpoint as mp4 on mac -with embedded (editable) video and narration

    After creating the whole powerpoint presentation, to find out that this is not possible is, needless to say, a shock.

  14. Full customizable keyboard shortcuts

    Please allow us to customize keyboard shortcut or at a minimum set keyboard shortcuts for the quick access toolbar similar to the Windows version of powerpoint. Alt-1 etc. is very powerful once customized.

  15. Export Powerpoint to video with music (not referring to narrations)

    When will we be able to export a presentation to .mp4 or .mov with music from iTunes and then be able to hear the music on the video. This is such a basic need. There is a "completed" request with over 1,000 requests to be able to record narration and export to video, there are many comments referring to a need for the ability to export with audio not only narrations). Office 365 so disappointed.

  16. Apply Morph Transition for Edited Points

    I would like the ability to morph between instances of the same shape (on sequential slides), but with edited points.

    For instance, if I have a circle, and I want to drag the tangent handles out slightly or maybe even move the points relative to each other using the Edit Points tool for each slide. I would like PowerPoint to morph the tangent lines smoothly, recognizing that it's the same object, but with modified points/tangents.

    This is different from scaling/moving the object as a whole.

    This will allow us to make more complex animation without needing to change anything in…

  18. Creating a link between text boxes in PowerPoint.

    In Word, you click a text box > select "Create a link" > select an empty text box to flow text between text boxes. If there is over flow of text a new page forms.

  19. File "Save As..." should by default save the new file in the same directory as the old file.

    File "Save As..." should by default save the new file in the same directory as the old file. Currently, PowerPoint randomly uses either the same directory or mostly the User/Documents folder.

  20. Allow embedded video from loom!

    I understand the plethora of online video sources out there and that it will be difficult to accommodate every one of them. That said, I'm really hoping that LOOM will quickly make it on your list of services you integrate with.
