  1. Improve Accessibility during Presentation Mode

    I love how much PowerPoint on Mac became accessible in a short period of time!
    I'm on fast track 15.39 (170919), and I have some suggestions to make it easier for Voiceover user to use PowerPoint during presentation mode.
    1. Presenter view:
    Voiceover doesn't seem to be able to read the content of slides during presenter view. It just says image.
    2. Highlight:
    Visually Impaired users cannot use pointer, so it would be great if the texts are editable during the presentation, so we can bold, highlight, and so on during the presentation to emphasize. WE can do it while…

  2. Allow a custom style preset library for type and objects that include colors, gradients, effects etc.

    I'd love to create a style set for a template that has more complex attributes and could be applied by clicking on it in a palete rather than having to do the "Copy Style" "Paste Style" from objects on other pages.

    For instance, like 8 object styles that I'd reuse for a particualr client across multiple presentations. It woucl be great to be able to embed it in the template to make it easy for them to apply consitent styles more easily.

  3. Allow drag-and-drop of PDF images from other software (notably LaTeXiT for better equation creation).

    You used to be able to drag equations from LaTeXiT directly into PowerPoint in the 2011 version in PDF format so they scaled nicely on different screens and projectors and could be re-sized with no loss of quality. This is broken in 2016, and never worked prior to the 2011 version. It would be even better if such elements could be dragged in-line, but that may be asking a little much.

  5. Ability to group tables with other elements (Shapes, Images, Text boxes)

    I often use invisible tables with text in them and would love to be able to group those table to other PPT elements such as shapes or text boxes. Right now, a group can include almost everything in PPT except tables, so this causes some heartache...

  7. Using a text character (ex. K) as an animation to advance to a specific slide

    allow a user to apply a key, example the "F" key, that then will hyperlink to a specific slide without using the mouse

    example:
    "t" key jumps to slide 5
    "k" key jumps to slide 7...

  9. Create a keyboard shortcut for placing images

    Create a keyboard shortcut for placing images. We would all save a lot of time. We could save even more time if you linked back to the folder you were placing from rather than click through to it every time. Unlike literally every other program in the world..

  10. Put Quick Access Toolbar icons in COLOR.

    Powerpoint 2011 used colored icons in the Quick Access Toolbar and they were MUCH easier to locate at a glance. The dull grey icons that now appear are so confusing I seldom use them,

  11. cmd+Backspace and alt+Backspace works incorrectly

    cmd+Backspace should delete all the characters in a line before cursor position, alt+Backspace should delete the last word (this is Mac OS conventions).

  15. Automated image editing for comparison of "before-after" images.

    Powerpoint would automatically offer to adjust the editing functions (zoom, crop, pan, tags etc.) of "after" image to that of "before" image.

    When presenting in radiology it is important to present before-after images in the most consistent way; when I present an image of a brain at a baseline study and after six months, I want the two images to fit to each other as much as possible, almost like it's the same image, so the audience can focus on the differences between the two. To allow them focusing on only the relevant differences, we need to get rid of…

  17. Converting Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese

    When I need to prepare two version of presentations for viewers, in Traditional and Simplified Chinese, I could not find a function to convert the file directly and easily.
    I need to translate each text box one by one every time and it is very time-consuming.

  18. Unable to do Save As to OneDrive Folder and Local Directory At the Same Time

    I notice that it is necessary to do two save as functions of a Powerpoint presentation document if I want to have a current copy both in my OneDrive folder and local directory or drive on my Mac. At the moment I have do a save as of a document to my OneDrive folder then do a second save as of the same document to a local directory or drive.

    Important suggestion is for the developers to urgently consider writing an option of allowing the saving of files into the two locations at the same time, without having to so…

  19. What about a sequence of appearing depending on the answer of the participants

    About animation, I would like the words to appear only when the auditors have given the answer. Like there are 7 words to be given, and when that word is mentionned, then I can make it appear. So there is no particular sequence, it will only be depending on the answers. When the 7 words have been found, I can go to the next slide

    I imported (as I was told to) Thousands of bought legitimate images into the old clip art gallery package. I need a way of retrieving these and their tags for current use
