  1. Enable live preview in PowerPoint for Mac

    The Live Preview feature is not enabled / Implemented in PowerPoint for Mac. I've seen people asking to enable live preview for different functions as suggestions. So I'm making this ticket as an aggregated ticket for all live preview functions.

      • Add the ability to ungroup vector objects in Powerpoint so that they can be editable!

        In previous versions we could import .emf files and ungroup them so that they could be edited. Why was this functionality removed???

        This is very important as my clients like to be able to modify the icons I design for them, to change colours, etc. It was very frustrating that I was able to do this previously, but now can't!

        I can now import SVG files and change the colour in Powerpoint, but I can't ungroup the object into parts so it's fully editable, why is this?

        I now have to use Open Office, import .emf files, 'break' the object,…

        • Support text wrapping around image

          Please include the above capability. It's essential in this software and has been in all other versions or Word and, I believe, PPT.

          • Enable Zoom Features for non-Office 365 Users (Mac)

            This should be available to both 365 and downloaded software users. So disappointing to hear its been released for mac users only with a 365 subscription.

            • add possibility to import an entire PDF

              Give possibility to insert a "PDF object" with a slide for each page of the original document.
              So, I could flexibly edit all the PDFs while staying in the Office apps.

                • Enable the Summary Zoom feature in Version 16.2

                  In response to previous requests to enable the summary zoom feature it was enabled and the previous thread mark 'complete'. However, as an office 365 Mac user I seem to have now lost the feature again in Version 16.2? It's a great feature that I was enjoying using and I now have presentations containing the functionality that I cannot edit! Can we have it back please? Many thanks

                      Please add the ability to export as XML in PowerPoint for Mac. It is frequently necessary for some of the work I do, and it's ridiculous having to go all the way to windows just to save in a different format.

                        • 文章内のどこにカーソルがあってもレベルの上げ下げができるショートカットキーがほしい。

                          レベルの上げ下げは、Tab(shift+Tab)キーでできるが、必ず文頭にカーソルを置いておかなければならないのが面倒。
                          Windows版PowerPointでは、文章内のどこかにカーソルがあっても、Shifr+Alt+→(←)のショートカットキーでレベルの上げ下げができる。

                              • Grant access automatically to linked video files when PPT is played on another device

                                Currently we are asked to Grant Access to each linked video file, which in my case often means going through 100 or more slides to locate the 20 video files one by one before I can run the presentation.
                                Sometimes (it seems by luck) it lists them all in one dialog box, which makes the task easier, but IDEALLY can this feature be bypassed, maybe in Preferences?

                                • SOUND CHECK DRY RUN

                                  I teach courses on auditory system and music and have many slides with embedded sounds.

                                  However, one can never be sure that the sounds will work in a given PPT file. It would be useful to have a button to play all the sounds (and videos as well) and report which ones will work and which ones will not.

                                  THere should also be a warning when one saves the PPT file if some of the sound icons don't have associated playable sound files or embedded file.

                                  • GLOBAL DO NOT COMPRESS OPTION

                                    It is unpredictable, but PPT sometimes auto-compresses PDF and other images in essence ruining them. I try to go in for each pasted graphic and select the No Compress option, but this is not always clear in the menu labels. It's very tedious not to be able to globally turn this (in my opinion idiotic) feature off.

                                    I want to turn off (permanently if possible) ALL compression in PPT for the Mac. Ideally, I would like to do this for all of my PPT files (if I were king I would take this "feature" out of PPT completely -- it…

                                    • Embedded graphics check

                                      There needs to be an indicator and warning if some graphics or videos are not working AND if some graphics or videos are not embedded in the saved PPT file. The warning needs to occur upon saving the file and upon opening it.

                                      I have had many, many of my PPT files over the years that have lacked the videos that I embedded in them originally. It means that I cannot trust my old PPT files to work -- I have to go through them and test each video, and this is a huge time sink for lecturers with hundreds…

                                      • More control for multiple monitors

                                        I work for a university and we have varying set-ups in classrooms. A couple set-ups have been displaying slideshows on all monitors, instead of just one. My idea is to give more options in the settings for displaying slideshows. And to be able to have it set as default. Changing to "Browse by individual" is tedious for instances where multiple students have presentations because you'd have to edit every presentation.

                                        • New slide button

                                          When you click on the down arrow in the new slide button, instead of opening up, it remains just highlighted. It doesnt work except we get only the standard slide.
