  2. Changing Page Setup Scale Changes Font

    Changing the scale of the slide using Page Setup and then selecting to scale the objects up causes the font to change. It seems to default back to Calibri even though the slides are set in a different font.

  10. Insert Special Characters feature

    Add an Insert Special Characters feature so hyphens, nonbreaking spaces, etc., can be added easily.

  12. Allow a default table style to be set

    The ability to set a default table style in a presentation is a major omission from PowerPoint. Currently when you insert a table it takes the formatting of one of the built-in table styles, which you can then change by choosing another one of the built-in styles.

    Most brands require a specific format for their tables - e.g. a certain colour of header row, a certain style of borders, etc. It would be very helpful if these attributes could be baked into a template so that new tables automatically take on the correct styling.

    Currently the only workaround for this…

  13. Formats and functions should remain the same in Windows and Mac in the same file

    When I open a PowerPoint from Windows PC on the Mac in Office is that some formatting is not noticeable.

  14. Using the mouse to scroll in the notes view also causes the page to change, rather than control the notes pane

    When the mouse pointer is hovering over the notes pane, it should only scroll that pane up and down to view the slide notes, rather than automatically jumping up or down a page when it reaches either the top of bottom of the note.

  15. Provide option to reset SVG's to original colours

    Say I insert an SVG icon to PowerPoint that has two colours - red + black. I then change the entire fill colour of that SVG icon to white. Further down the line I need to reset the colours to the original red + black. I would like a 'reset' button to revert the colours back to what they were when I inserted it.

  16. How about not forcing these so-called "features" to users?

    For example: Why does Microsoft feel like it's necessary for a URL to be underlined?

  17. cmd-s does not work sometimes, sometimes it does. Why?

    Cmd-S is the standard key combination to save your file. It is even listed in the File menu, yet it only works sometimes. I have no idea why this would be the case.
    It's annoying, please fix it.

  18. Icon for "bring to front" is not logic

    I have placed a little icon on top of the window on orange ground for bringing a selected object to the front, consisting of 3 squares.
    BOTH the little squares should be BEHIND the big square! (now the big one is in the middle which makes no sense)
    I am not a native English speaker, I hope you understand.

  19. Bring back slide build printing, Please! Aren't updates supposed to improve the products?

    Hey! you used to have a "slide build" option when printing powerpoint files. It used to be available from very early versions of PPT. It was also available for PDF export via printing on a Mac. It is very useful for people who use animations but want to hand out a PDF version. What ever happened to it?

  20. 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.
