  3. Make presenter videos of reasonable size

    Finally and long overdue, Powerpoint for the Mac can also record presenter videos along with slides to generate a video of the talk. Alas, the videos are dramatically oversized. A 70MB presentation of just 20 slides become a 1500MB file after recording 45min of presenter video. Completely over the top and ridiculous for a thumbnail video that occupies a tiny little corner in the bottom left of the final video.

    Please adjust that to a much smaller and reasonable size. Lower the default size of the video and give us access to settings to control it ourselves.

  7. The possibility to make universal font changes in a document.

    It would be useful to be able to adjust the font used across an entire ppt. Now,, unless there is a way I do not know of, one must go from slide to slide.

  8. Bug: Tiny Print Using Outline Layout

    Since March update to Office (Mac), when printing using outline layout, the text of the layout prints very tiny. The header and footer print normal size, but the actual content is unreadable. Changing the scaling in the print dialogue and changing the on-screen percentage have no effect.

  9. PDF Non-Compression Feature

    The option for not compressing images does not work when a PDF file is imported. This should be fixed and handled the same was as other image files. Especially since the user can bring in a PDF "image" using the Insert/Pictures/From File commands to get it into your PowerPoint file. Currently when you import a PDF and then save the file, the PDF image's resolution is very low and low quality.

  10. equal access

    I use powerpoint in O365, on my Mac and on a PC. I noticed that O365 allows a YT video to be imbedded, but the app on my computers doesn't. Conversely, I can crop a gif on my Mac, but not on a PC. My suggestion is to have all the features compatible across all the platforms...

  11. Exporting to Video causes background noise to stop and narration to skip.

    The following is Microsoft Tech Supports response to me. I had submitted that I had a presentation done with background music throughout and narration in the middle. When converting to video the background music stops at the narration portions and the narration at 3 min and 5-1/2 minutes just stopped, then the slide would freeze for sometime. When the slide finally changed the narration returned.

    Hi Fishnut88,
    Tina Chen MSFT has replied to your question Narrated Audio skips when exporting a Powerpoint 2019 for Mac to MP4 or Mov. in Microsoft Community.
    Hi Fishnut88,

    Thank you for posting back and…

  12. Improve narration system

    There should be a way to add external pre-recorded audio as narration rather than having to narrate into the inbuilt system

  13. Please add the feature of "drawing canvas" from Windows to Mac.

    The drawing canvas feature in Window is extremely helpful and "must". It should also has in Mac OS.

  14. Contextual quick links

    At the moment, some very simple, basic tasks are three clicks away when they should be one. For example, if I want a text box to not autofit text, I have to right mouse click, select 'format shape', click dropdown for text box and selct 'do not autofit'.

    Could we not have contextualised quick links for the most popular tasks on an object, making them just one click away.

    An example for a text box would be - Control, right mouse click, select don't auto fit. Control, right mouse click, fill colour. This would drastically reduce number of clicks across…

  17. in a windowed slide show I can't use the pen for slides

    I am teaching with ppt in Zoom. I prefer to see my students when I present slides, so I customize my slides in a windowed slidshow mode. Then, I can't use the pen which I can use it in full screen. Is there any way I can use the pen in a windowed slideshow?
    Also, the markings by the pen do now show in recorded zoom clips.

  19. QAT below the ribbon

    The QAT in Mac Office software is fixed at the top of the document window. It cannot be repositioned regardless of version. It would be really great if it would be possible to move Quick Access Toolbar below the ribbon in Mac. That would help me very much.

  20. Add dot/tab leaders

    This is a really basic feature that programs like InDesign and even Word (in your own eco-system) have. Many of the clients I build decks for request Tables of Contents in their presentations, and this would be very helpful in formatting them. Please add this, MS.
