  1. Let us ungroup and edit svg files

    Dear Devs, thank you for adding svg-support!

    • Please provide possibility to export powerpoint as mp4 on mac -with embedded video and narration

      After creating the whole presentation, to find out that this is not possible is, needless to say, a shock.

                • Don't make me type units

                  The fields in the Paragraph dialog box don't compensate when you forget to type the units, even when they're presupposed. It doesn't even fill in the units for you after the alert box pops up.

                    • Change the scale from center BACK to Option/Alt, which is standard in design programs

                      You changed the scale from center command from Option/Alt to control which is non-standard for design programs. It's really frustrating from a professional design perspective that you would make this click drag feature different from every other design program.
                      It was correct before.

                      Please change back to Option/Alt to scale from center of object.

                          • Make it quicker, easier and more intuitive to right align horizontal bar chart labels

                            You can't do it the seemingly obvious way by selecting the text box and clicking on the 'right align' icon in the ribbon. Instead you have to go into the 'line spacing' dialogue box. You'd never find it if you didn't know where it was.

                              • individual word fade in and out / animation and transition

                                Folks, my wife is a teacher and is looking at tools to support dyslexic learning differences. One of the challenges is note taking. She has suggested being able to use animations on a per-word basis. This may exist and its ironic if it does as i work for Microsoft in the UK Edu Team.

                                • Keyboard shortcuts for kerning and tracking text please - or to adjust 'character spacing'. Or the ability to input amount on the 'ribbon'

                                  At the moment the options are just very tight, tight, normal, loose and very loose - all of which are pretty useless. 'Normal' is usually OK - standard - but if tightening is needed, 'tight' is too tight. This requires going even further than the drop-down menu into 'more spacing', which takes the OS a comparatively long time to open the dialogue box before you can enter the amount. On top of that, there is no option in this dialogue to preview the result - meaning you have to 'OK'/apply the new tracking value before seeing how it will look.…

                                    When pasting text, please make it optional to change the default settings to something other than "Use destination theme." Eliminating the need to have to toggle down each time text entries are entered.

                                    • Ability to edit freeform in Design Ideas

                                      What is this type of selection with the small surrounding 'slashed' squares after formatting w Design Ideas? The images are contained within some type of mask. They are NOT selectable by click unless I do a 'SELECT ALL' cmd in the slide and only then, I am able to delete, but I can't resize, replace, or do anything further with it.

                                      2) If I wanted to animate bkgd, I can only control/pick one object contained in the slide.

                                      How do I get more control of these features?

                                      • Allow video recording with PowerPoint, like can be done with PC's

                                        It would be helpful to videotape a PowerPoint presentation (video and audio) with a MacBook Air. PC's allow this, but evidently it is not compatible with Mac's. I can only do an audio recording with my slides. Will this be something worked on for the future? Thank you.

                                          The design community readily relies on the MAC and Adobe Illustrator for designing, meaning entire page layouts, not just artwork/shapes. I have tried different conversion options for MAC AI to PPT and none work properly. The ability to convert an entire page, pulling over the artwork and text all at once, without disturbance to the layout would be a huge bonus to PPT capabilities.
