  2. PLEASE enable presenter view to open in a window, not full screen only.

    Very similar to another suggestion. When I present over Zoom, I want to use Presenter View and see my Zoom window of participants at the same time. But because Presenter View is only in Full Screen Mode, whenever I click into it, my Zoom window disappears, so I cannot see my participants when I am presenting. Currently, PPT enables "open in a window" in regular slide show mode. But what is needed is Open in a Window for Presenter View mode, also!! Then I can potentially use split-screen and have the two applications (PPT and Zoom) running at the same…

  4. Enable management of "Recent Documents" for Mac users

    MAC users cannot currently manage or disable "Recent Documents" in PowerPoint. It would be helpful to add the same functionality as Windows users with an option for "0" recent docs. In my case, this is affecting my Dropbox Sync function and keeps re-downloading each PowerPoint file that has been unsynced every time I open PowerPoint.

  5. Create a way to improve closed caption accuracy on PowerPoint

    In the realm of accessibility, it is EXTREMELY important that accurate live-auto captioning software be available for creating transcripts during a presentation. I have been working with this software, and the accuracy is fairly good, but it consistently gets a few "difficult" words wrong. One solution I thought of would be a communication between the words on the slide and the live captions, so the software can learn how to recognize key words and spell them correctly. Or, if you could add words to the "dictionary" on Microsoft, and then the software would understand how to spell it. This is…

  6. Allow user to customize workspace in PowerPoint.

    For example, the default active slide highlighting color is orange. If you are working with a slide theme that has an orange border, it is very difficult to see it. Many Apple-designed programs allow user to customize their workspace environment. Would be nice to see that in PowerPoint.

  10. BUG:Before the presentation, I manually adjust the transition to the next slide and, even so, it advances to the next slide after some time.

    Unfortunately, I could not find out this procedure: click “File”, then “Feedback”, then“Send a Frown” in PowerPoint.

    So, I report that bug here.

  11. Export to PDF options

    Add the ability to export a range of slides, user-defined sections. Bonus points - add the ability to make export based on the same selection automatic.

  12. Right click align tool please

    Right clicking on an object, text box or image is second nature for designers. On Mac Powerpoint it is difficult to hunt for the Align icon on the menu bar every time, and interrupts what could be a speedy workflow!

  16. Please allow the text highlighter to have different INTENSITIES for each color. Most are so dark they obliterate the text.

    For PowerPoint it is possible to have different shades of a given color for the text BOXES, but not for hightlighting of WORDS. Now most of the text highlighting colors are so dark they obliterate the word—making them useless. Please allow all highlight colors to have the ability to have different levels of transparency (darkness or lightness).

  17. Please help us number slides separately by section!

    start each section slide number at one, which will make it easier to manage very large presentations!

  20. Cursor Placement when inserting slides: more flexibility--end of row, end of slides, etc.

    Small item, but in Overall Slides view, often I want to insert slides at the end of a presentation. In previous PPTX, I could click my curor ANYWHERE behind the last slide and paste. No more. Now I have to put cursor PRECISELY behind edge of last slide. Otherwise it pastes in line above.

    Same is true if i want to paste slides at the end of a row of slides. One used to be able to put cursor at end of a row or beginning of next row. Now you can only insert at beginning of a row of…
