  1. Add Open Type features

    It would be great if we could use the same open type features that we can use in word, too.

    i.e. Change old-style and standard figures, use real small caps etc…

    That would make our slides look even better :) Thanks a lot!

    • Make it possible to be able to use a non-Microsoft font for the HEADER and BODY text placeholders.

      Sometimes users want to use OTHER font combinations outside of the 10 or so built in MSFT only font combos. When I inquired about this, as usual, I was told "You can do that on the PC version". That's a A POOR EXCUSE. You've been developing PowerPoint for the Mac and the PC for OVER 20 YEARS - and you chage the same for Mac and PC versions, so there's NO EXCUSE for the Mac version of PowerPoint to do ANYTHING LESS than the PC version. There are DOZENS of MAJOR features missing from the Mac version. 20+ years is…

      • Move the tiny header file name icon to the footer so the whole file name can be read

        I have many shortcuts in my header that obscure the file name, so I have to control-click on the header PPT icon to see the name of the file I am working on. How much nicer it would be to have that name appear at the bottom without having to click on it as I often have multiple PPT files open and can't see their file names all at once.

                    • Please support PowerPoint for Mac on the current plus 2 previous macOS operating systems

                      https://support.office.com/article/upgrade-your-macos-to-access-new-office-365-for-mac-features-f6efc6b6-90f8-4e69-82dd-d0de32a111aa

                      There is some indication that Office for Mac 2019 will only support the latest current release of macOS plus the previous operating system. This is a formal request from an Enterprise admin to have Microsoft provide support for the current macOS operating system plus the two previous operating systems.

                      Apple has been absolutely horrendous in documenting and providing the appropriate management tools to deal with major restrictions they've been adding to macOS. This makes it much more difficult to deploy the latest macOS release on day 1. As an example, the majority of our users are still on macOS…

                      • New slides with A3 format must keep A3 aspect ratio (26,67cm x 37,72cm)

                        A3 size given on a new slide with A3 format is (26,67cm x 35,56cm) and it is wrong under my opinion. To mantain A3 (297mm x 420mm) aspect ratio must have 26,67cm x 37,72cm.

                            auto save in all office files is destructive. what happens is that when opening a file with the intent to create a new file (later save as), the original file will be corrupted !i

                                • PP 365 is buggy - tried transitions and animations on 3 Macs with same software and when a presesntation is played it's jerky and distorted.

                                  My idea is to get it fixed! Have worked with 2nd level technicians at Microsoft and they did not have a solution. I have had to delete the new software and go back to PowerPoint 2016. They cannot even tell me how I would know if the current software has been fixed. Was told to periodically delete the 2016 version and try installing and testing the 365 version. Unbelievable!
