  1. Create a new type of grouping called Matrix

    As a marketing professional, I often use slides that show a group view of partners/customers displaying their logos. Like a matrix.

    I tried to do it with a table but, unlike in Word, it is not possible to paste a picture inside a table cell, only to set it as a background for the cell, which is part of the formatting and does not allow for easy reallocation using copy/paste

    Every time a new partner has to be added/removed, I have to manually rearrange the entire matrix of logos, and then realign vertically and horizontally. It is very time consuming.

  2. Needs Equation Autocorrect in PowerPoint for Mac

    Equation autocorrect (such as turning \alpha to α) has once worked on PowerPoint 2016 for Mac but it disappeared on PowerPoint 2019 for Mac (strangely autocorrect still exists in the initial release of PowerPoint 2019, but it no longer works after the November 2018 update). This is a very important feature. Hope that MS can bring it back (and please do not reserve it for Office 365 subscribers)

  3. Have a "check for issues" like in Windows

    On Windows PowerPoint there's an option to check for issues which can remove sensitive metadata and also remove speaker notes. This would be great to have on the Mac version.

  4. Retain Hyperlinks on Shapes Saved to PDF

    1. Add a shape to a PowerPoint 2011 or 2016 slide.
    2. Add a hyperlink to the shape.
    3. Save the file as PDF and open in Reader. The hyperlink is gone.

    This works as expected in the Windows versions of PowerPoint, please fix!

  5. Reapply Master to Notes pages missing in PPT 16.2

    Where did Reapply Master to Notes pages disappear to? This is a vital function in our shop, and it seems to have gone missing in the latest Mac version of PowerPoint.

    You must bring it back!!!!

  7. Paste at cursor or viewport centre by default and add "paste in place"

    If I want to copy an object and use it again at some other place on the slide or another slide, it's very cumbersome if the object gets pasted close to where the copied object was. It's rather unlikely that I need it there. That's especially annoying if the paste position isn't even within my view port! Therefore pasting should happen at the position of the cursor or the centre of the view port. Additionally I want to point out that besides it being for the windows version, the "paste in place" feature requested in https://powerpoint.uservoice.com/forums/288949-powerpoint-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/13727943-paste-in-place is needed.

  9. Update version to work with macOS Mojave

    When you open Office for Mac 11, it shows that it is a 32 bit version; whereas 64 bit version is what is needed for the mac update. Kindly update OFFICE for MAC also to 64 bit version (true for Word, Excel, Keynote, and Powerpoint all)

  10. Snap to shape gone

    The snap to shape option does not exist and when "Dynamic Guides" and "Guidces" are both checked and "Snap to grid is unchecked, everytime I create a shape it still defaults to having a border. Maybe there is a way to solve this but everywhere I have looked suggests turning on snap to shape.

  11. Add projecting caps to the ends of lines

    Please add Project Caps to the ends of Lines so when we're aligning horizontal and vertical lines, they join to make a clean corner without gaps.

  12. Auto-Save

    I am a college student writing a paper for a class. I saved my paper a total of 3 times and when PowerPoint decided to quit the application, all of my progress was lost. Why is it when it was "saved" it really wasn't. There should be an automatic auto-save every time the application is idle for more than 3 seconds.

    This option is not available in Powerpoint.

  19. Add ability for users to choose light or dark mode of ppt and excel when mac is set at dark mode

    When using the ppt, excel or word,the main part of the screen is almost light colour or at least not always the dark colour. In this occasion, we may prefer the UI is also at a lighter color instead of the present darker one even though the mac is at a dark mode.
