  1. Remove SVG Ungroup Alert

    Whenever I convert an SVG to Shape, I always get the Popup that says
    "This is an imported picture, not a group. Do you want to convert it to a Microsoft Office drawing object?"

    Which I then have to click Yes on all the time. Seems like an unecessary popup and is an annoyance.

  2. Gravação da ponteira a laser

    Bom dia,
    Quando faço a gravação da tela do power point para fazer uma aula aos meus alunos, habilito a ponteira a laser e vou apontado os slides para os meus alunos. Quando vou assistir a apresentação, o audio sai direitinho mas a ponteira não, ou seja eles não conseguem acompanhar a ponteira. Fiz um teste no Power Point do Windows e consigo fazer isso. Entrei também em contato com o chat de vocês e eles disseram que no MacBook isso não é possível. Solicito que habilitem a gravação da ponteira laser quando se grava a apresentação de slides. Desde…

  4. Create "Powerpoint PRO"...a version for power users

    Create a supercharged version of Powerpoint that has features strictly for design professionals. So a lot of these things that we're clamoring for (advanced timeline, locking layers, Adobe like features) can be built into this release, leaving the "non-pro" version to remain easy to use for everyday users. I'd buy it!

  5. Mac PowerPoint Tab-Theme (Slide Size 4:3 to 16:9)

    In PowerPoint 2011 for Mac, I was able to change the size of the slide to 16:9 and all of my side content would stretch to fit. PowerPoint 2016 and newer only lets you change the slide size but the content stays the same. Can you add the option to let me stretch the slide to 16:9 and all the content stretch with the slide size. I use PowerPoint 2011 for this option only. I know I will not get to do this for much longer.

  6. Include an option for the presenter to be videoed via the webcam on mac.

    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.

  7. Rounded corners should be a parameter in the FORMAT panel. This would allow for consistent elements.

  8. Sharper slide images on Notes Pages

    PowerPoint 2011 had sharp vector images of slides appearing on Notes Pages. In 2016 and 2019, that good code was tossed out and the slide images are now blurry and unreadable bitmaps. Please bring back the vector images.

  9. Make tagged PDF when saving as PDF

    When saving as PDF, PowerPoint should make a tagged PDF where heading rules are automatically observed. There must always be a heading 1 tag. Heading tags must be sequential.

  10. Align to key object

    It would be great to be able to align to a key object, for example, a second click to indicate the key object and have items align to that. (Similar to Adobe Illustrator and InDesign alignment options).

  11. 3 screens presentation mode

    I have a 3 monitor setup with my mac desktop. I would like to be able to select which of the 3 screens have the slide show and presenter mode views. Sometimes I get the views displayed on the desired pair of screens, but sometimes I don't. It would be good to be able to precess through the possible pairs of screens.

  16. No-fill data point markers on line charts should knock out to background color

    Currently, when you have a marker on a line chart with a reasonable size, with a marker stroke but no marker fill, it shows the line intersecting the midpoint of the marker. Preferably, the lines would join to the outside of the marker, not the middle of the marker. Either that or have the marker fill knock out to the slide BG.

  17. Last Slide Viewed Hyperlink

    In PPT for Mac we don´t have an option to create a hyperlink to the last slide viewed, there is only for first/last, next/previous and custom. Having a "last viewed slide" hyperlink would allow to create more rich interactive experiences.

  18. Ability to unlink slide colors from theme colors

    I would like the ability to copy slides from an existing presentation, keep the colors of objects, charts, etc, as they are while still using the destination theme. In other words, I want the colors to be independent of the theme colors unless I choose to use the theme colors. A simple "unlink colors from theme" button would suffice.
