  2. 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.

  5. Slide size

    Have a function to a) see the size (in MB) of each slide, and b) to sort the slides by size. This would make it way quicker to identify which slides are eating up most space, which you can then use to e.g. make pictures smaller.

  9. Text outline so the text does not die with the background

  10. Sort files when opening from OneDrive

    when opening a file in Powerpoint/Excel/Word on Onedrive is very difficult to find the file is the folder has many files as there is no possibility to sort the files and have more info. size of column is fixed resulting in gutted names and ordering is preconfigured and not modifiable
    You need to have a similar pane for cloud file as for the local files

  12. Keep PowerPoint Running

    When multiple screen/monitors are being used, a PowerPoint Presentation will stop running. With a PP-Presentation running on screen/monitor-1 and you move your mouse to work on screen/monitor-2 the PP-Presentation stops.

    This is extremely urgent to get working!

    Many Presenters are using teleconferencing software to work with employees and co-workers at home. The teleconferencing software is running on one screen and the PP-Presentation is running on the second screen. The PP-Presentation STOPS/PAUSES when you have to focus on the teleconferencing software to respond to chats or talk.

    PP-Presentations with automatic slide transitions, movies, music or audio tracks are severely impacted.

  15. It would be very convenient if users were able to select more than 1 picture at a time when adding media into a slide.

    If users were able to select more than one picture per slide it would be very convenient. I know there is an option to select one or select all, but there does not seem to be an option to select multiple pictures at once.

  17. Dont waste space on templates or use such small fonts.

    Some of the templates have too much space around the text boxes, resulting in smaller fonts for the test.
    People want to read what's on the slides

  18. Windowed slideshow mode

    I often follow presentations with a copy of a ppt on my computer. I would love to be able to view a slideshow in presentation mode through a non-fullscreen window. This would allow me to view the presentation as-intended without seeing spelling and grammar recommendations or other chrome from editing mode.. but still multitask on a desktop with multiple other windows open.
