  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.…

  9. Add an Auto fit option to Notes text

    For all versions of PPT - provide an “Auto Fit” option for notes on all slides to help prevent the need to scroll just for one line of notes. Or provide more robust notes formatting.

  11. Allow for anonymous comments in PowerPoint for Mac

    Microsoft Word allows you to remove identifiable information about a user from comments. This same feature should be available for PowerPoint, too.

  14. scrollable Images

    it would be nice to have a feature that allows to have scrollable images (e. g. to show a responsive layout in a Smartphone-Mockup). And maybe just as a simple feature - not as a workaround using Developer-Tools. ;)

  15. Provide the ability to lock Font Styles on shared presentations

    With multiple users editing a document a frequent required step is bringing all fonts into alignment prior to sending to a client. If a presentation could be shared with the default font locked this would save a large amount of time spent on a low value activity.

  16. Floating Ribbon Panel

    Hi MS, back in Powerpoint 2007 you could customize the ribbon (which is great) but also you could float it in its own window and move it to where you wanted. Granted the ribbon makes it faster, but clicking at the top of the screen then back down to the slide is a long trip. It was awesome when you could put it right next to where you're working.

  18. Bring back support for latex-like syntax in equation environment.

    I have just updated to ppt 16.10 for mac, and the support for latex-like syntax has disappeared altogether (see https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Linear-format-equations-using-UnicodeMath-and-LaTeX-in-Word-2e00618d-b1fd-49d8-8cb4-8d17f25754f8?CorrelationId=f86c5d17-96ad-474b-97f5-4f8c5510052d&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US)

    Before updating the keyboard shortcuts did work. I'm now using version 15.33 on another machine, and the shortcuts do work.

    Adding a keyboard shortcut for inserting equations would be great too.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  19. Make an option to change the mouse right click in show mode to enable reverse (instead of the contextual show menu).

    Make an option to change the mouse right click in show mode to enable reverse (instead of the contextual show pop up menu). This option is on the PC version of PowerPoint and should be on the Mac version too. This would enable presenters to quickly reverse and advance during a show, without having to bring up a menu on screen.

  20. In edit mode, increasing the window size should also increase the zoom

    Currently, when you resize the window, the zoom factor doesn't scale with it. In case of increasing the window size, this results in a large amount of unused screen real estate (until you manually zoom in to correct it again). It would be nice if PPT automatically scaled the content to make it fit the window while resizing.
