  1. Font Style with Language Dependent Rules for Capitalization in Titles of Articles

    Please provide a new font style that implements the Language Dependent Rules for Capitalization in Titles of Articles. It is always a manual task to correctly change the capitalization. If Powerpoint / Word does such capitalization as part of a style then it prevents errors and on the other hand it is simplified to copy & past to non-title parts (by removing the font style for titles). Even more, the capitalization is change automatically if language is changed.

    Rules of such title style:
    In English, almost all first letters in all words are capitalized according common rules

    In German, there…

    • In a new gen Macbook pro morph doesn't work well

      When you use morph in an imac with the main screen for presenting everything works fine.

      However, if you do the same thing in a macbook pro, the effect jumps instead of being smooth.

        • The ability to import any number of slides from another presentation and ability to retain OR override formatting.

          This is a biggy. It was possible in the previous version for Mac but no longer in Powerpoint 2016 for Mac.

          • Allow notification disable when inserting videos from YouTube in Powerpoint

            The Security notification and need to Enable Content, can be disabled by Trust Center in the Windows Powerpoint version. However, there is no similar control center on Mac. It would be great if this improvement could be made. Thank you.

                      • Add "Change All Images/Graphics" Option

                        Please allow the option to replace all instances of an image in a PP document.

                        Currently, if you have a deck that involves a single, repeated image amongst its slides, one must change each instance of the image manually.

                        Use cases:
                        • Using the morph transition, an image changes size/crop/position across the slides. Instead of tediously replaces every instance, this option would replace all at once.
                        • An image is placed on multiple slides throughout the document (some could even be hidden in the selection pane). You're not sure where all of them are, but the image must be updated.…

                        • Open Type Fonts still not working in latest update

                          The latest version (16.16) still does not work properly with third-party purchased fonts. Specifically, I am using "Milo Pro" and neither Italics nor Bold work in the text despite selecting them in the Fonts menu. I am therefore still using version 15.41, where this font works.

                          • 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.

                                • Fix printing bug with macOS Mojave

                                  Another update, another problem with printing. Since updating to macOS Mojave I'm having issues where colors get altered when printing a presentation. Doesn't happen on every slide, but it does happen... Happy to provide an example if necessary (MS team, do reach out!). Anyone else experiencing this issue? Also, cropped imaged overlaying another image have a weird shadow around them...

                                    • Microsoft PowerPoint Can't display clip art in mac os x Why can we not have it for mac book os X

                                      I am required to make a presentation and require few pictures. If I have clipart working it would be easy and great but its not so for me as I am a macbook user and have a licensed office 365. Still its an issue. Certain other functions also do not work such as aligning text in box or a shape.
