  3. Save as PDF - PDF version standard

    Export/Save as PDF should use the same PDF version standard across all Microsoft products for example version 1.7 regardless if using Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, or Microsoft Online and regardless of using the option use Microsoft online service to generate the PDF or using the local service.
    This consistency is critical to having a consistent and supported cross platform user experience with PDFs being used or printed which were created by Microsoft products.

  5. Do not make PDF's bigger than the PPT file

    The PDF file reported from PPT should never be bigger than the PPT file itself.
    However, I have a number of PPT files that, when exported to PDF, triple in file size. This is not good.
    I was told PPT might be trying to create "high quality" images (the PPT file contains lots of images), but I don't see how image quality can be increased beyond what is already there in the PPT source.

  6. 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.

  7. 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. Find the distance between two objects?

    For example, in Sketch, I can click on a box, hit my Mac "alt" button, hover over another object, and Sketch will automatically tell me that the objects are 155 pixels apart or something like that.

  11. Change Picture and keep same cropping

    PLEASE allow users to replace a picture with a new one and keep the same cropping. Whenever I change out a picture, even though it is the same size (I edited it in photoshop), when I replace the picture it resets the cropping and I have to resize the image. Linking the image does not seem to work on my mac version of Powerpoint.

  12. Add the ability to view gridlines as you are able to in PowerPoint on Windows

    In the Windows version of PowerPoint, one is able to show gridlines on a slide, and possibly edit the size. This is not possible on the Mac version.

  13. Support ligatures in PowerPoint for macOS

    Just like Keynote or Word does it, ligatures such as "Fi" of "Ff" should be automatically formatted by PowerPoint on the Mac. Pretty much every font supports them. This being 21st century, text—especially in headings—looks unprofessional without ligatures.

  14. Define 'default text style' for charts

    PowerPoint automatically sets the text style in charts to about 30% brighter off Text/Background Dark 1, and this is not part of the theme colors. I understand it's designed for it to be somewhat visible on both dark and light backgrounds, but it's making the charts details out of place design-wise; off-theme, off-brand.

    Please allow us to set the formatting as a Master, thanks!

  15. Restore Right Scroll Bar and arrows

    I am distraught that PowerPoint 2019 for Mac, which I just installed on a new Mac, does not have the right side scroll bar and slide advance errors when editing slides.

    I have used PPT for more than 30 years. Why does it make sense to take away part of the core navigation? I don't want to use thumbnails at left all the time.

  16. Add a Column Break command for multiple column text boxes

    Add a Column Break command for multiple column text boxes

    Currently in a multiple column text box, one has to add extra spaces to force a line into the second column, why not have a column break command in PPT as there is in Word?

  17. Allow setting of default file extension for "Save as Picture" or at least remember the last format choice.

    The ability to save images and shapes as pictures in PDF is a great feature of PowerPoint on Mac. Please enable users to set the default file extension for "Save as Picture", for example, as PDF. Currently, PowerPoint always defaults saving to .PNG file.

    At the very least, PowerPoint should remember the user's last format choice and default to that.

  18. Create different paths through a deck in Screen show for different people.

    People often build decks for use my multiple different type of people - sales, technical, management etc but you still want them to use some common charts. Rather than build multiple decks it would be good to be able to define multiple paths through a deck depending on different needs. Simple mix could ask the person putting it in screen show, which path they want to take

  19. Notes Page - Substandard Programming

    In PowerPoint 2016 and 2019 for Mac, the notes pages have substandard programming. The right-click menu is a simple copy of the right-click menu for slides. It can't be called context-aware, because it isn't. In all Windows versions, the right-click menu for Notes Pages includes a command to reapply important features of the Notes Master (Notes Layout). This menu is missing in all versions of PowerPoint for Mac. Instead, a lazy programmer has added the right-click menu that applies only to slides.
    This need is especially relevant because PowerPoint Online currently corrupts Notes Pages when they are edited. Windows users…
