  2. Please add ability to customize Apple Touch Bar for PPT. It would be great to be able to include forward and back arrows

    Apple Touch Bar is now supported for PowerPoint, but there is no capability to customize the Touch Bar. We need this ability to fully exploit PowerPoint with Touch Bar, particularly when using it with the new Sidecar capability. Particularly useful would be the ability to include Forward and Backward keys on the Touch Bar so that a PowerPoint presentation could be advanced (from one slide to the next, or backward) by using the Touch Bar when the presentation is being shown on an iPad that is being used in Side Car mode.

  5. Adding a history toolbar drop down menu for last 10-15 commands / actions

    In creating slides for an image filled teaching lecture would like to access my last actions because they usually repeat for each slide I make. I think a drop down button showing last options would be useful to me. Once there was a box with image manager where size, position, crop were on in one place

  6. opentype advanced feature support

    Enable the "features" of an OpenType font. Especially the "Number Spacing" feature is really important to line up in tabular form

  9. Add Sections to the Master Template

    Add sections to the Master in PPT so that you could categorize the type of slides in the layout selection tool. If you didn't add a sections feature, even adding a way to categorize the type of slide would be incredibly helpful from a user perspective when dealing with corporate decks.

  10. Powerful features for designers using PPT

    Please have your developers use and become proficient at a basic graphic design program. Graphic designers by and large are your primary users and happen to use software that has a designer's logic to it. Powerpoint's basic functionality and workflow consistently ignores this "best practice" development approach and causes so many discontinuities (read: Frustration) that if it wasn't so maddening it would be laughable. That said, there are some basic things that would make the program more user friendly:


    1. Bezier curves: This is a extremely critical function! Illustrator provides fine controls that makes curves easy and quick to do -…

  11. Dynamic table of contents based on sections

    The idea is pretty simple and - I think - useful: auto-generate table of contents (ToC) based on the name of each section in PowerPoint.

    For example, you have three sections: introduction, sample projects, and further reading. The aut-ToC would allow you to insert a ToC including the names of each section, and e.g. the number of the first slide in that section (1,8,15), and potentially other info (e.g. number of slides in that section). As you add/remove/change the sections and their names, the ToC would adjust automatically.

    There would be different lay-outs for the ToC, e.g. with bullets points,…

  12. design ideas

    "Design Ideas" WAS working GREAT until recently SOMETHING CHANGED. Now any time I try to create a list on the second slide, the feature does not give any suggestions with icons or smartart diagrams, just changes the background. Afterward, each slide is stuck in the specific design chosen in the first slide (everything from background to text size and shape). I used to be able to customize each individual slide by slide and not rely on an overall design from the first slide which made each slide unique and fun. Not anymore. And even when icon or smartart suggestions come…

  13. Speed function for narrated slide show

    The good thing about COVID is that we could sit on our comfy bed and won't need to worry to go to school. The bad thing is all the professors are still alive and they †alk slowly with narrated PowerPoint.
    It would be a great idea that PowerPoint would have a button, like those in the video players, for a 2x playback speed

  15. Add Paste Link to Paste Special when Pasting Excel data

    On Mac OS, when pasting Excel cells or worksheets in Word, you have the option to paste the data as a link so that the Word document is updated when the data in Excel is updated. This should also be available in Powerpoint. Currently, you can paste the data in Powerpoint, but data does not update when the Excel worksheet is changed.
