  2. Export PDF as handouts as you can on windows.

    On windows you can export your powerpoint, with the notes to the side, as a PDF file. This is excellent for students and revision. Why I cannot do this on mac I do not know, but would appreciate it being added as an option.

  4. Please provide possibility to export powerpoint as mp4 on mac -with embedded (editable) video and narration

    After creating the whole powerpoint presentation, to find out that this is not possible is, needless to say, a shock.

  7. Full customizable keyboard shortcuts

    Please allow us to customize keyboard shortcut or at a minimum set keyboard shortcuts for the quick access toolbar similar to the Windows version of powerpoint. Alt-1 etc. is very powerful once customized.

  8. Export Powerpoint to video with music (not referring to narrations)

    When will we be able to export a presentation to .mp4 or .mov with music from iTunes and then be able to hear the music on the video. This is such a basic need. There is a "completed" request with over 1,000 requests to be able to record narration and export to video, there are many comments referring to a need for the ability to export with audio not only narrations). Office 365 so disappointed.

  9. Apply Morph Transition for Edited Points

    I would like the ability to morph between instances of the same shape (on sequential slides), but with edited points.

    For instance, if I have a circle, and I want to drag the tangent handles out slightly or maybe even move the points relative to each other using the Edit Points tool for each slide. I would like PowerPoint to morph the tangent lines smoothly, recognizing that it's the same object, but with modified points/tangents.

    This is different from scaling/moving the object as a whole.

    This will allow us to make more complex animation without needing to change anything in…

  11. Creating a link between text boxes in PowerPoint.

    In Word, you click a text box > select "Create a link" > select an empty text box to flow text between text boxes. If there is over flow of text a new page forms.

  12. File "Save As..." should by default save the new file in the same directory as the old file.

    File "Save As..." should by default save the new file in the same directory as the old file. Currently, PowerPoint randomly uses either the same directory or mostly the User/Documents folder.

  13. Allow embedded video from loom!

    I understand the plethora of online video sources out there and that it will be difficult to accommodate every one of them. That said, I'm really hoping that LOOM will quickly make it on your list of services you integrate with.

  16. Add Diagram Measurement-Style Ends to Arrow Type Options for Lines

    Please add the ability to select ┣ and ┫as Begin and End Arrow Types for lines. This would be very useful for when I have to diagram something and use lines to display measurements (like on a blueprint).

    This can currently only be done by attaching small lines to the ends of the line that spans the measured length, which can be difficult and time-consuming to use.

  18. Make it easier for us to quickly find the icon on the toolbar that we need

    Currently the new PPT for Mac looks like a hipster designer updated the icons on the toolbar - but when three are the same shade of blue they are VERY hard to differentiate quickly - adding to our cognitive load. If the design team can't make their updates easy for ongoing users to adapt to - then let us change the colours etc

  19. Fix the PDF export and import !!!! (and re-enable the personalisation of the toolbar)

    I recently updated all my computers (work and personal) to Powerpoint 2018 (version 16.21) from an older version (I think 2016) and I was already quite annoyed by the fact that we cannot peronnalise the toolbar anymore without getting a 365 subscription. Your software is already expensive enough that buying it should make it possible to use it completely without the need to pay again. But I could live with a non-personalised toolbar, but now I discover that I cannot save my presentations as pdf anymore, since the quality of the images get super crapy and given the number of…

  20. Please allow images in PDF format to be pasted into PowerPoint (/Word) without destroying their quality

    I love being able to take PDF screenshots or figures and paste them into presentations, so that the quality of the presentation remains high and the images aren't pixilated.

    Unfortunately, with the latest updates to Office 2019 / Office 365 (at least with 16.21 190117), images inserted into PowerPoints and Word files as PDFs become pixilated and desaturated as soon as the file is saved. The results look awful on any high quality display, and are unusable for presentations or reports (even sometimes illegible altogether).

    This has made it capturing screenshots on a Mac or exporting high-quality images from other…
