  1. After a presentation is saved, the producer should be able to make recording adjustments to a single slide rather that redoing everything.

    This idea will allow presenters to re-record on a single slide without having to redo the entire presentation.

  3. Add design ideas again

    I used to like this option but lately i cannot find it in the desktop app even though it appears in the web app. It would be cool if you added that option back to the desktop app

  5. Not able to "search" Powerpoint slides after being exported in "notes" format, please help students out!

    Ex: When you export a powerpoint to include the professor's notes under the slide (Format:Notes), when opened again you CAN NOT search the actual powerpoint slides for key words. This is absolutely imperative in Grad School having hundreds of files and very long powerpoints... I need to be able to search the actual powerpoint, not just the writing underneath them in the "notes" section.... I noticed this after exporting into Notability (whom my partner is a software engineer for and figured out it's on PP's side, not theirs). PLEASE OH PLEASE, make it so that the powerpoint slide remains as…

  7. Allow users to remove underscore from Hyperlinks

    Power Point does not allow users to remove the underscore from hyperlinks. They look hideous and sometimes virtually non-readable in presentation mode and PDFs.

    The companies "solution" to this problems is simply a joke (wanna have a laugh, check it out: https://support.microsoft.com/pt-br/office/remover-o-sublinhado-do-texto-de-um-hiperlink-28d22daa-7897-4091-9168-d6a12d523874)

    Please just allow us to format the text of hyperlinks just as you do in Excel or Word.

  8. Add keyboard shortcuts for the more commonly-used tasks like left/right/center alignment for text and objects, etc.

    PowerPoint needs to include keyboard shortcuts along the lines of Adobe products. It's such a pain and not efficient to have to repeat the same set of clicks over and over when working to align objects or text. I should be able to drag-select objects (without having to encompass them to select but rather, drag through them to grab them) and then use a keyboard command to align them. This is a LONG OVERDUE feature that all other apps have.

  11. Free for Students

    I am a student in middle school and I need a subscription to be able to edit and save on powerpoint. For any students, it should be free. I don't have enough money to be paying for a subscription and I need it for school. It would be great if powerpoint could be free for any students (K-12). My peers agree with me.

  15. Add Animation like Keynote

    Apple's Keynote have so much good animations and smooth ones. I suggest to add more animations in PowerPoint to make more fantastic such as object animations and also transitions. I sometimes use powerpoint as a video editor or animator and I think, this will be a better way for those who can't afford expensive video editing or animator like me. This way, students or workers can make infographics, or much easier ways to understand the thought of a specific topic.

  20. Enable pen annotations in non-full screen modes

    For remote teaching, so we can hand- annotate Powerpoint slides and see Zoom chats during a presentation, please:
    - enable pen annotations in non-full-screen modes ("Browsed by an Individual") and /or
    - allow use of a 2nd display without automatically triggering Presenter mode
    and /or
    - enable Presenter view to be used in non-full screen.
