  2. Slide show mode in Powerpoint turns on screen mirroring with two displays

    I'm using Powerpoint 16.40 for Mac with two displays (OSX 10.15). In slide show mode, Powerpoint insists on turning on display mirroring, which prevents the user from viewing another application (e.g. to see a videoconference audience) on the other display. The only way to avoid mirroring is to use the "Browsed by an individual" setting in Slide Show Setup, but that is not a full-screen option. Please fix this -- thank you!

  4. Fix audio recording problem

    When recording audio (with timings recorded) the first and last few seconds of sound for each slide (eg. near the transition between slides) is missing when the recording is played back.

  5. Allow for editing the crop box of a graphic

    So, if I select the crop function for a vector graphic (not a raster image) any ability to change the fill or outline of the shape used to crop the graphic is lost. Why not allow for editing of both the graphic AND it's crop box?

  7. please make it so you can do a slideshow on one screen without the demonstrator view on your second monitor.

    Just make it so a slideshow can be on one screen without taking up your seconds display, I don't mean kiosk view as you cannot write using a graphics tablet onto kiosk view.
    I would make powerpoint much more usable for remote learning.

  10. More simple graphics in smart design ideas

    I absolutely LOVE the smart design ideas in PPT. There was one slide in particular in which the system generated the perfect graphics for the content presented in the slide. It even picked up on the use of bullet points and had just the right layout options to improve the flow of the slide. However, I was only able to capture this option on that one slide, despite other slides having similar structures. Such a tool would be incredible if it became a little more sensitive to content cues within each slide.

  13. Add Animation Trigger

    Add animation triggers, bookmarks and audio in exported video files (with bookmark triggers) all appea. Lack of these buttons force people to use Apple Keynote.

  17. Enable Playback Speed Options for PowerPoint Audio

    Please make this possible. All students going to school virtually can agree this will be a beneficial option for those who need to hear audio at different speeds.

  18. Rule Before/After for Paragraphs

    I'd like to see PPT have the functionality to add a customized (i.e., .5 point, light blue, etc) rule line before or after paragraphs so if I'm typing out a list of items and need a rule line between each item, it will automatically be added rather than having to manually create a rule line and replicating/aligning each between items.
