  2. Add webcam and microphone options to "Record Silde Show" experience

    The narration recording function is good but the actual face of the presenter cannot be videoed via the webcam on mac. This is available on the windows version and it seems an odd function to leave off the mac version as this is so widely used. It is really complicated, time consuming and potentially expensive to get this to work on mac due to having to purchase additional hardware/software.

  3. 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. Reading View in PowerPoint for Mac

    PowerPoint for Windows has Reading view which is like Presenter view with the title bar and the task bar. The good thing about Reading view is that you can have multiple windows open, and you can also have two presentations with Reading view open in two different displays, thus affording an amazing way to compare before and after slides. PowerPoint for Mac still does not have this view.

    You can learn more about Reading view at https://www.indezine.com/products/powerpoint/learn/interface/365/reading-view.html

  6. Implement a feature in PowerPoint for Mac that records the screen

    It would be great if PowerPoint for Mac could record the screen like the Windows version can.

  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. 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.

  10. 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?

  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.

  13. 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.

  14. Add pen tools and Laser to record movement for "Record Slide Show" experience

    Request coming from teachers who are doing remote learning during the pandemic.

    Please add the ability to annotate while doing a presentation recording. This would be similar to Ink on windows. The feature existed with Mix but not available in PowerPoint 16.

  18. After a presentation is saved, the producer should be able to make recording adjustments to a single slide rather that redoing everything.

    This idea will allow presenters to re-record on a single slide without having to redo the entire presentation.
