  2. Enable management of "Recent Documents" for Mac users

    MAC users cannot currently manage or disable "Recent Documents" in PowerPoint. It would be helpful to add the same functionality as Windows users with an option for "0" recent docs. In my case, this is affecting my Dropbox Sync function and keeps re-downloading each PowerPoint file that has been unsynced every time I open PowerPoint.

  3. Allow user to customize workspace in PowerPoint.

    For example, the default active slide highlighting color is orange. If you are working with a slide theme that has an orange border, it is very difficult to see it. Many Apple-designed programs allow user to customize their workspace environment. Would be nice to see that in PowerPoint.

  7. BUG:Before the presentation, I manually adjust the transition to the next slide and, even so, it advances to the next slide after some time.

    Unfortunately, I could not find out this procedure: click “File”, then “Feedback”, then“Send a Frown” in PowerPoint.

    So, I report that bug here.

    BUG: Before the presentation, I manually adjust the transition to the next slide and, even so, it advances to the next slide after some time.

  8. Customize default built-in template

    The internet is full of pages explaining how to save a custom theme and make it the default, however nobody can explain how to make the default presentation also have custom slides in it so that I don't have manually do "New from Template..." with a custom template every time I want to do a presentation. I would like PowerPoint's default presentation to not only have the theme I specified, but the actual slides in it that I want.

  12. Export/publish presentation to Stream

    Please allow to export a recorded presentation to STREAM format. My school uses TEAMS which integrates nicely with STREAM, but at home using a Mac I cannot publish my recorded PPT as STREAM to post as instructional video for students on TEAMS. Windows users do have this option.

  13. Please add the ability to save real-time, automatic captions or subtitles in PowerPoint for Mac

    As a college student diagnosed so far with autism, anxiety disorder and dyspraxia with possible auditory processing disorder and mixed language disorder, I need to have the ability to save real-time, automatic captions or subtitles in PowerPoint for Mac because I currently own a 2017 MacBook Pro with Touchbar and this very very needed feature is not currently for PowerPoint for Mac at all and is currently only available for Windows right now.

  14. Please help us number slides separately by section!

    start each section slide number at one, which will make it easier to manage very large presentations!

  17. Cursor Placement when inserting slides: more flexibility--end of row, end of slides, etc.

    Small item, but in Overall Slides view, often I want to insert slides at the end of a presentation. In previous PPTX, I could click my curor ANYWHERE behind the last slide and paste. No more. Now I have to put cursor PRECISELY behind edge of last slide. Otherwise it pastes in line above.

    Same is true if i want to paste slides at the end of a row of slides. One used to be able to put cursor at end of a row or beginning of next row. Now you can only insert at beginning of a row of…
