  1. Button to Change Color Background to White

    An easily accessed button that creates a print or a presentation version of my creation. Print = white background. Presentation = full-bleed color background. I constantly double my work to account for each.

  5. We need better standard MS fonts.

    We need better standard fonts. Microsoft needs to make an investment in legitimate typography like Google has.

    We are being forced back to Microsoft Office from G-Suite and my documents look like garbage because there are not any fonts with weight ranges or design appeal that are suitable approximations for our brand identity. I realize we can now embed fonts, but it goes out the window when someone else edits the document and doesn't have the font. It doesn't really help if everyone on the platform doesn't have the same fonts. The best solution is for Microsoft to up their…

  6. Fix ‘Compress Images’ option

  7. All available Help links to PowerPoint indicate that you should use aPaste Options Button when copying slides from one file to another. Prob

    All available Help links that I could find give instructions on copying slides from one file to another with the option of changing the background by clicking the Paste and Paste Options button. Problem is that the Paste Options button is nowhere to be found! I would appreciate a solution. Thanks

  10. Use MBPro task bar for previewing upcoming slides

    As detailed in https://twitter.com/LesterMartinATL/status/1191834050538938373 with pics, it is cool that the MBPro's adaptive task bar shows thumbnails of slides & allows you to scroll around, but it could be improved slightly if the selected slide (wrapped in an orange border) would stay centered until touched so that you use as a preview of the upcoming slides.

  14. "Bullet Gallery"

    customize the default bullet styles in the "Bullet Gallery" - this was possible in the old day (PowerPoint 2003 and before), but somehow was missed from the 2007 version onwards

  16. Load all fonts in Powerpoint from Font Book

    Why is it that powerpoint can not load all fonts from the computer on MacOS in 2019? Keynote has no issues with this, but powerpoint fails to render fonts accurately much less significantly limiting my choices from the fonts I have available in adobe programs, keynote etc.

  17. Record slide show with Pen Tool

    Please add the ability to annotate while doing a presentation recording. This would be similar to Ink on windows. The feature existed with Mix but not available in PowerPoint 16.

  18. Set custom default fonts for Slide Masters in template files (as on Windows version)

    You can set your own fonts in text boxes created as part of Slide Masters in a template. However, you can't set the default fonts for the template as a whole, as you can on Windows.

    So, when someone using the template adds a new text box to a slide the font defaults to a different font (Calibri as standard).

    On Windows, the option of 'Customise Fonts' is in the 'Fonts' dropdown on the Slide Master tab.

  19. Add animation before slide transition (or automate slide transition after click-activated animation is done playing))

    I frequently find myself wanting an exit animation for the content of my slide immediately before the transition to the next slide (for example, the text might zoom out of view before the whole slide dissolves). Currently, the only way to do this is to duplicate the slide and set automatic timings on the duplicate, which means that if anyone wants to edit the slide, they must edit both copies. It would be really nice if you could tell Powerpoint to advance the slide after a certain animation plays (maybe a special "advance slide" event in the animation timeline?) or…

  20. Linked duplicates

    There should be an option to create a duplicate of an object that remains linked to the original object, so that any changes to the original propagate to all the duplicates. For example, I create presentations with complex animations that often require putting the same text box on multiple slides, and it becomes a huge pain to have to edit the text boxes on 5 different slides, some of which might be behind other shapes, just because I wanted to change one word. It would be really nice to have all of those copies connected to each other so that…
