  2. Presenter view screen selection - 3 screens on MAC

    When using Presenter view on Mac, it would be great to be able to select not only the screen that you want the presentation in but also the screen that you want the presenter's view to be on.

    Thanks,
    Cynthia

  3. Ability to increase playback speed of integrated audio

    In the playback section of powerpoint slides that contain audio, an option to increase the playback speed of audio should be available for -0.5, -0.75, 1x (normal), 1.25, 1.5, 1.75 and 2x speed. This would greatly benefit individuals who are auditory learners who wish to hear at sounds slower or faster. I am in grad school as a first year dual masters pediatric nurse practitioner student and time is of the essence. There are many ways instructors having been delivering teaching methods since class has been mainly virtual and audio recorded powerpoints have been one of the many ways they…

  4. Improve function of shape anchor points and connectors

    Powerpoint is very poor when it comes to creating process flows with shapes and connectors that must follow non-simple paths. It is very difficult and non-intuitive to edit the anchor points of a shape (it invariably distorts the shape's existing lines). It is also very frustrating to work with connectors, because they are limited in their number of joints (more cannot be added) and cannot be manually re-routed. Even more basic drawing programs allow more precise control of shape anchor points and connectors, enabling users to easily create more complex diagrams. A few simple improvements to the behaviors and functionality…

  7. Support paste SVG from clipboard.

    Because of the poor LateX user-interface/experience in powerpoint and to have more flexibility for the equations I write them using a different editor. I then export it as SVG and then import it in the powerpoint. My LatexEditor does support copying as SVG but the paste from clipboard in powerpoint simply ends up pasting it as an XML document. Adding clipboard based pasting for SVG will simplify this process.

  9. Save as svg for macos

    I love Powerpoint for macOS as a tool to create illustrations that I need in .svg format - but every time I create a new illustration, I have to find a Windows PC somewhere to be able to save the illustration in .svg format.

    Pleas add the ability to save as .svg to macOS version of Powerpoint

  11. make it possible to put a power point presentation into word document form

    it would be really useful if one could change a presentation from powerpoint form to a word document form. not just copying each slide and then pasting them as photos.

  12. fix loop issue in PowerPoint slide show

    When looping a video on one slide; the video stops after a short time…maybe one or more loops (usually only one or two). I have it set to “loop Until Stopped” and to start automatically…with “Play Full Screen”. This might be associated with MacBook iOS upgrade.

  14. Add support for PDF images in presentations

    I want to be able to take a pdf image and drag it into a slide. This is a super common format for plots and maps and illustrator files and other things that need to be vector graphics, and this works in both Keynote and Google Slides, so I am surprised it has not been implemented already. Thanks!

  16. Add a "Show More" Feature

    Do you know the problem that you have so much more content and so many more ideas but the slides are already full with text? Instead of putting the slides in a backup at the very end, it would be great to have the option to hide and show more content, for instance with an addable drop down menu.

  17. Make Reading view easier to work with when making corrections to individual slides

    Currently when working in "Reading View" I am working through a script and sometimes have to make changes to the slide which requires that I drop out of reading view to edit the slide. When I go back to reading view, the slide presentation goes back to the beginning of the slide program and I have to wade through all the slides and animations that preceded the corrected slide. It would be much more productive if I could just highlight the slide I finished editing and start reading view at the same slide.
