  5. Powerpoint 2019 Printing Notes Fails on Existing Decks

    My Office 365 subscription recently updated. Since then, I am unable to preview or print the notes of a deck that I had created prior to the upgrade. Microsoft Office 365 chat support tried for 30 minutes and was unable to find a fix.

    I am using PowerPoint for Mac 2019 Version 16.24 (19041401).

    Please contact me immediately as I need a resolution within the next 9 days.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. QAT Commands - Honor per file commands added in Windows

    PowerPoint for Mac only displays per installation QAT commands. Adding a command makes that icon visible only on the existing installation, regardless of what file is open. Per file commands added in the Windows versions are not honored and are not visible even when the file containing the customization is open.

  12. Fix bugs in recording audio slideshow where audio is intermittently dropped

    In theory, I love the feature within PowerPoint (desktop version, not available in online format of PPT) where you can "record slide show" and audio is attached to each slide, which is super easy to update as needed, and then export as a video file to use on youtube, etc. HOWEVER, it's been a known issue for at least 15 years (per forums I've found online) that this feature is super glitchy. Most significantly, the audio file doesn't always record, but you don't know until your "recording session" is done and saved and you realize all or half your slides…

  14. Keep embedded fonts when copying slides to another presentation

    It's fantastic to finally have font embedding in the Mac version of PowerPoint, but it would be even better if it was possible for embedded fonts to stay embedded if slides are copied to another presentation that uses a different theme.

    Presentations (especially for conferences or collaborative pitches) are very often assembled using slides submitted by different presenters from different organisations who have different templates and themes. At the moment it seems that some of the formatting (backgrounds, colours etc) can be preserved when pasting slides, but embedded fonts are substituted and do not display. Fonts are just as integral…

  15. More control for multiple monitors

    I work for a university and we have varying set-ups in classrooms. A couple set-ups have been displaying slideshows on all monitors, instead of just one. My idea is to give more options in the settings for displaying slideshows. And to be able to have it set as default. Changing to "Browse by individual" is tedious for instances where multiple students have presentations because you'd have to edit every presentation.

  16. Custom Text Highlight Colour

    It would be very useful to be able to customise the text highlight colours when creating a template file for a more cohesive 'on-brand' feel.

  17. 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

  18. Create a new type of grouping called Matrix

    As a marketing professional, I often use slides that show a group view of partners/customers displaying their logos. Like a matrix.

    I tried to do it with a table but, unlike in Word, it is not possible to paste a picture inside a table cell, only to set it as a background for the cell, which is part of the formatting and does not allow for easy reallocation using copy/paste

    Every time a new partner has to be added/removed, I have to manually rearrange the entire matrix of logos, and then realign vertically and horizontally. It is very time consuming.

  19. Needs Equation Autocorrect in PowerPoint for Mac

    Equation autocorrect (such as turning \alpha to α) has once worked on PowerPoint 2016 for Mac but it disappeared on PowerPoint 2019 for Mac (strangely autocorrect still exists in the initial release of PowerPoint 2019, but it no longer works after the November 2018 update). This is a very important feature. Hope that MS can bring it back (and please do not reserve it for Office 365 subscribers)

  20. Have a "check for issues" like in Windows

    On Windows PowerPoint there's an option to check for issues which can remove sensitive metadata and also remove speaker notes. This would be great to have on the Mac version.
