  1. Need to be able to Edit powerpoint while presenting.

    We have been able to edit Powerpoint while presenting on Windows for many years to not be able to do this on Mac is a huge step back.

  2. Slide size

    Have a function to a) see the size (in MB) of each slide, and b) to sort the slides by size. This would make it way quicker to identify which slides are eating up most space, which you can then use to e.g. make pictures smaller.

  3. Simpler Macro Creator or More Apply to All options

    VOTE FOR THIS!! I'd like to create macros because what I do is extreme repetition. One push of a button would save me so much time and stress. I am aware of VBA (Visual Basics Editor) in PowerPoint, however I don't have time to learn script or "programming language". Another suggestion is an APPLY TO ALL OPTION FOR TEXTBOX SHAPE FORMAT. This is very important for strict formatting and broadcast/television standards. Thank you.

  4. Caps Lock change lower case to upper case in words (MICROSOFT to microsoft, and vice versa) when highlight word

    You highlight a word for example "MICROSOFT", press the caps lock button while highlighting, and it changes the word to "microsoft", and vice versa.

  6. Text outline so the text does not die with the background

    An easy way to change the outline on any text so when the background is perfect the text is perfect but it blends in on one area.

  7. Make presentation features on MAC the same as PC particularly when presenting on dual monitors

    On the PC version when presenting slides with presentation on a second display monitor, you can edit the powerpoint slides on one display while presenting on the other - this is not possible on the MAC version and the closest I have seen to a solution is having two copies of the powerpoint slide open, and presenting one copy while using the second to edit

  8. Mac PowerPoint Tab-Theme (Slide Size 4:3 to 16:9)

    In PowerPoint 2011 for Mac, I was able to change the size of the slide to 16:9 and all of my side content would stretch to fit. PowerPoint 2016 and newer only lets you change the slide size but the content stays the same. Can you add the option to let me stretch the slide to 16:9 and all the content stretch with the slide size. I use PowerPoint 2011 for this option only. I know I will not get to do this for much longer.

  9. Sharper slide images on Notes Pages

    PowerPoint 2011 had sharp vector images of slides appearing on Notes Pages. In 2016 and 2019, that good code was tossed out and the slide images are now blurry and unreadable bitmaps. Please bring back the vector images.

  11. Keep PowerPoint Running

    When multiple screen/monitors are being used, a PowerPoint Presentation will stop running. With a PP-Presentation running on screen/monitor-1 and you move your mouse to work on screen/monitor-2 the PP-Presentation stops.

    This is extremely urgent to get working!

    Many Presenters are using teleconferencing software to work with employees and co-workers at home. The teleconferencing software is running on one screen and the PP-Presentation is running on the second screen. The PP-Presentation STOPS/PAUSES when you have to focus on the teleconferencing software to respond to chats or talk.

    PP-Presentations with automatic slide transitions, movies, music or audio tracks are severely impacted.

  13. Stop destroying my work

    Uploaded a version of my presentation to the 'cloud'.

    Now I've nothing, the local version was 'moved' to the cloud and all I have is versions that don't match what I know I worked on.

    If Microsoft don't understand how to provide these services maybe don't provide them.

    I now have to recreate the work.

  15. Base slide size on pixels, not cm or inches

    Powerpoint is an application in which you can create presentations. As a designer i'm pretty frustrated by the fact that the standard size unit is set to cm's. I mean, the actual size output is dependent on the screen it is projected on.

    If i want to set a presentation to 1920 x 1080 px i can convert the size to cm's on unitconverters.net (a link i got from a Microsoft support employee). Convert 1920 to cm's and the answer will be 50,8 cm. Now my screen is set to 1920 px, but the width of the screen is far…

  16. It would be very convenient if users were able to select more than 1 picture at a time when adding media into a slide.

    If users were able to select more than one picture per slide it would be very convenient. I know there is an option to select one or select all, but there does not seem to be an option to select multiple pictures at once.

  17. Add option to record URLs added to slide when using "Record Slide Show" experience

    Because of the corona virus, I need to record powerpoints for my students to use. When teaching in the classroom, I can easily insert a hyperlink and simply click on it when I am in "slideshow" but for some reason, hyperlinks do not work in "record" mode. I would like to kindly suggest you make this feature available.
    Thank you.

  19. Speed function for narrated slide show

    The good thing about COVID is that we could sit on our comfy bed and won't need to worry to go to school. The bad thing is all the professors are still alive and they †alk slowly with narrated PowerPoint.
    It would be a great idea that PowerPoint would have a button, like those in the video players, for a 2x playback speed

  20. Dont waste space on templates or use such small fonts.

    Some of the templates have too much space around the text boxes, resulting in smaller fonts for the test.
    People want to read what's on the slides
