  2. General request - make all Power Point tools equal on PC and Mac.

    Microsoft is selling limited version of PowerPoint 2019 on Mac charging the same or more money. There are plenty of tools and options not available on Macs, where are quite long available on PC. This is very unfair and I'm surprised that there is still no lawsuit against that company for tens and hundreds of millions $ for making faulty software. Im just going to promote that action in public so maybe in a short time we would see significant improvement of Mac version of Office, or MS will be sued for millions. In US, in EU, in UK, wherever…

  5. Custom Font Themes for Mac

    I'm trying to set a custom font theme in a new PowerPoint template from the list of pre-defined themes in the dropdown list. But it's my understanding that this is not possible to add custom font on a Mac. However, this feature is available on Window. Do you know when this feature will be made available for Mac?

  6. Enabling to record a slideshow with a video narrative in PowerPoint (Office 365) for Mac OS X Catalina.

    Please, enable to record a slideshow with a video narrative in PowerPoint (Office 365) for Mac OS X Catalina. Unfortunately, it is available for Windows only.
    The link https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/record-a-slide-show-with-narration-and-slide-timings-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c#OfficeVersion=macOS is not applicable for Mac OS Catalina. If this feature is implemented, it will be very interesting for users are looking for a way to make some video classes because they could record the slide show and the speaker's video simultaneously.

  7. Show pointer on recorded slides.

    Office 365 has a feature that allows you to view a prerecorded pointer if the presenter used it when recording the slideshow.

    The pointer shows on a prerecorded slideshow in Windows, however, the same file doesn't show the pointer on a Mac.

    Adding this feature will make life easier, especially with online learning.

  8. Bring back "Reuse slide" and allow formatting options when inserting slides

    In Office for Mac 2011 (and for current Windows Users) one can choose to reuse a single slide (or 2, 3 etc) from another presentation and retain the original formatting. No more! With 2016 the user is forced to add ALL slides from the secondary presentation - and the formatting is automatically changed, too. For example, if you need 2 slides from a 100 slide presentation, all 100 slides are inserted and all formatting auto-changed to the receiving presentation. This renders the feature virtually useless and costs users a ton of time that wasn't previously required. The Microsoft Tech team…

  9. Slide font corruption if it has objects in Enhanced Metafile Format

    You copy object from PowerPoint for Windows desktop app and paste it to another slide as Enhanced Metafile Format. If you open the slide which has the EMF objects, you see characters are corrupted in the deck. This happens in PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 for Mac version 16.44(20121301) or later. Please fix this problem.

  11. live annotating with students

    I'm a teacher and I think you should make this so we can do live annotations with students, especially while presenting on teams. it would be amazing to have a link where i can share with my students and we can both annotate in real time

  12. Paragraph and character styles, please!

    Why can't we create/modify paragraph and character styles with a format pane as robust as Word? Header 1, Header 2, captions, custom bullets et al that don't have to be reformatted over and over again would make things so much faster, consistent, and easier. Your end user is familiar with paragraph styles in Word, give them a little credit to be able to use them in PowerPoint as well.

  14. in a windowed slide show I can't use the pen for slides

    I am teaching with ppt in Zoom. I prefer to see my students when I present slides, so I customize my slides in a windowed slidshow mode. Then, I can't use the pen which I can use it in full screen. Is there any way I can use the pen in a windowed slideshow?
    Also, the markings by the pen do now show in recorded zoom clips.

  15. Control over rounded corners

    I constantly have to copy and paste a box to keep the rounded corners consistent, can we have it available to type in a value when we create any shape?

  16. Add dot/tab leaders

    This is a really basic feature that programs like InDesign and even Word (in your own eco-system) have. Many of the clients I build decks for request Tables of Contents in their presentations, and this would be very helpful in formatting them. Please add this, MS.

  18. Lock Object Position on Slide

    Please make it possible to lock the position of an object (e.g,. image) on a slide. The feature is in Keynote and is indispensable when adding labels and layers to an underlying image.
