  2. Instead of the zoom in of 400, Zoom in even more.

    Who has a problem with the zooming in? I know i do. When i do school project I use powerpoint, I would like if the creators could let us zoom in even more than 400, so we can get more details out of the pictures.

  3. Please allow autofill of typefaces within a font in the font search bar

    I have a font "DIN Pro" that has several typefaces (Regular, Cond Light, Black, Bold, Medium, etc.). When I begin to type "DIN Pro" in the font search bar, it does not allow me to manually select the typeface that I want to use. For example, if I want to use "DIN Pro Medium" I can't type "DIN Pro Medium" and it recognize it as the "Medium" typeface of the DIN Pro font, even though when I look in my Font Book it says it is named "DIN Pro Medium". I have to into the Fonts dropdown and then click…

  6. SCORM plugin

    SCORM plugin for PowerPoint and PowerPoint for Mac!

    Previously there was the Office Mix that expired a few years ago. Will there be any remake to this?

    There are also converters for free (sketchy) versions on the web or costly options (iSpring, etc.) for download, or require an authoring tool such as Articulate Storyline or Adobe Captive.

    I want something I trust in a program I trust.

  10. Stop destroying my work

    Uploaded a version of my presentation to the 'cloud'.

    Now I've nothing, the local version was 'moved' to the cloud and all I have is versions that don't match what I know I worked on.

    If Microsoft don't understand how to provide these services maybe don't provide them.

    I now have to recreate the work.

  11. FULL PASTE SPECIAL OPTIONS

    FULL PASTE SPECIAL OPTIONS -- On MAC you can NOT bring in anything from illustrator because there is no EMF option in the paste special.
    DUH!! If I'm working on a MAC it's likely because I work in the design world and spend my days in Adobe programs. I need to be able to bring in vector elements and make them editable so things like brand colors can be changed without having to build and bring in 10 different versions of the same item so I have it different colors.
    Start playing well with others!!!!

  12. Please optimize audio playback directly within a .pptx document downloaded from Google Slides

    When I download a presentation from Google Slides as .pptx to PowerPoint, the audio .mp3 or .wav does not play inside the presentation when clicked. It opens it in a new tab and although at least it does, it is not efficient for viewing the presentation. It would be great if that takes playback within the same presentation.

  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. Improve PowerPoint 365 for Mac

    In the previous version of PowerPoint 2011 for Mac and in current versions of PowerPoint with Office 365 for Windows, you were/are able to have a body of text, select the 'Paragraph' option and edit the various characteristics such as line spacing. When editing these characteristics, the changes would change in real time in these versions of PowerPoint as I input different values into the options for the desired characteristic to edit. However on PowerPoint for Mac downloaded as part of my Office 365 subscription, this feature does not exist and rather you have to input the values of desired…

  19. Add option to disable recent fonts

    It would be a great idea if there were a way to disable recent fonts.

    The recent font list can get clogged up very quickly when testing which font to use.

  20. Add "insert Screen Recording" option

    "I would like to suggest the Screen Recording feature to be available for MAC users since we all know this is very useful to us, especially when to this situation we are facing right now and we were advised to work from home. This feature would really help us, not just today but for everyday use
