  1. Better Presentations

    Some have noted great presentations sometimes have no bullets

    Treat using bullets or not using bullets the same way. Make a clear choice in Master Slides to default to bullets or not using bullets. When constructing slides, use tab to go to lower bullet or not bullet the same way (smaller indented text).

    Likewise currently difficult to control distance between bullet lines. There are so many multi-step ways, very complex. Need simple menu for space between (bullet) lines not in a paragraph. Space between lines in a paragraph is a separate menu. Current mix of so many possibilities is difficult…

      • Why are third party fonts STILL not working?

        The latest version (16.19) still does not work properly with third-party purchased fonts. Specifically, I am using "Roboto" and neither Italics nor Bold work in the text despite selecting them in the Fonts menu. I am a professional speaker. When the fonts don't work it throws off all the written content on a slide. I am therefore still using version 15.41, where this font works.

        Can someone please remind me why we are paying an annual fee for Microsoft when they are not providing a reliable service?

              • Provide possibility to embed videos in PDFs exported from PPT

                When exporting to PDF, I would like to have the option of embedding all videos directly and automatically in the PDF.
                I know I can embed videos afterwards in an existing PDF, but this is way to cumbersome, especially for presentations that contain several videos.
                PPT should embed the videos in the PDF even if they are only linked to from the PPT file.

                  • Measurements in pixels

                    It absolutely EVADES my understanding of (software) design concepts as of WHY is every measurement in centimeters (or inches), not in pixels. Is the reason for this softwares existence printing out the presentations (easily measured in cm) OR is it actually for presenting them on screen space (quite impossible to measure in cm)? Which one is it, I'm confused...
                    (No, I'm actually not confused – put in the f*cking pixels, it's impossible to design without!!!!)

                      • The ability to customize the entire color palette

                        Would like the ability to customize the entire color palette. I would like to override the auto-generated tints and hues...

                        The autogenerated tints and hues never match the clients branding and create lots confusion.

                            Thanks for your feedback! The PowerPoint for Mac team is reviewing your suggestion to allow presentations include both landscape and portrait orientations and will consider it in future planning rounds.

                            Remember, this site helps us to prioritize our backlog so the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. If this is a feature that is important to you, be sure to give it a vote!

                          • You should be able to put placeholder images in the back so you can put an image over it.

                            Putting design elements over a placeholder image is a feature regulary asked by clients. More layering would be very nice.

                              PowerPoint 365 for Mac should allow more installation of Chinese fonts without much restrictions.

                              • Add better PDF integration

                                Please consider adding better embedding of PDF files into slides.
                                By that I mean two things:
                                - more view options: option to select which page should be shown, two-page view etc.
                                - editing: ability to fill out a PDF form during presentation (& also save the inputed data inside the pptx file)

                                    • Wish PowerPoint had field codes, especially SEQ, as Word does.

                                      I like to reference, at the bottom of slides, the corresponding page number in a workbook. Right now I have to do by hand what I do in Word with the SEQ field code and my own variable.

                                      When I delete/add pages in the workbook, I have to manually update the corresponding page numbers on the slides by hand. When you have a 200 slide deck, that can be very annoying. If there was a SEQ field code, then I could just "update fields" as I do in word and the work would be done!

                                        Presenter View is an essential tool of Powerpoint helping us present with notes, a timer, a preview, and a slide overview. But many things remain to be improved. Join me in pushing for the following essential features and bug fixes.

                                        1) Allow customization. Not everybody needs the same things from the Presenter View. Allow users to activate/inactivate elements to their needs.

                                        2) Create a couple additional widgets for the Presenter View that fit less frequent user requirements like a countdown timer to end at a specific time, a slides left counter, a centralized notes field to be saved with the…
