  2. Contextual quick links

    At the moment, some very simple, basic tasks are three clicks away when they should be one. For example, if I want a text box to not autofit text, I have to right mouse click, select 'format shape', click dropdown for text box and selct 'do not autofit'.

    Could we not have contextualised quick links for the most popular tasks on an object, making them just one click away.

    An example for a text box would be - Control, right mouse click, select don't auto fit. Control, right mouse click, fill colour. This would drastically reduce number of clicks across…

  5. in a windowed slide show I can't use the pen for slides

    I am teaching with ppt in Zoom. I prefer to see my students when I present slides, so I customize my slides in a windowed slidshow mode. Then, I can't use the pen which I can use it in full screen. Is there any way I can use the pen in a windowed slideshow?
    Also, the markings by the pen do now show in recorded zoom clips.

  9. Mac version needs fix for pdf exports and hyperlinks to work

    Your colleague advised me that in windows ppt if you export a ppt to pdf, there are 2 options: 1.) Standard publishing (which is a print quality pdf file and links wont work) 2.) Minimum size publishing (Which exports pdf file that saves hyperlink and works. However this isn't available on Mac versions. Either way both export to pdf and save us pdf do not allow hyperlinks to work in the conversion unlike the windows version which does. Please can you fix this? It's unfortunate to be marketing PPT on Mac as the same working version as PPT on Windows…

  10. Split the Quick Access Toolbar and have different buttons over and below the ribbon

    It would be nice to allow users to split the quick access toolbar and have some buttons over the ribbons and some others below the ribbon.
    In the same way as powerpoint for Windows

  13. Adding a Shortcut keyboard button for eraser while presenting the PPT.

    So, I am a Teacher's Trainer and due to current change in times, I am training the teachers on Online so when I teach teachers I always use pen from PPT option (i.e. command+P, in my Mac book). but if I want to erase something and not the whole screen there is no shortcut for that, I have to erase full annotation on the screen. But if you add the shortcut it will make life easy while giving the presentation online.

  17. Cut and paste slides format

    When you cut and paste slides maybe keep default mode as Keep Source Formatting as that is the most commonly used option. Would add hours onto my life!

  18. Lock picture box when replacing image

    When choosing the "Replace Image" option on it slide image, please give the option to "FIT image to crop box" AND "FIT crop box to new image." That way, an existing design can be maintained and it will speed work up immeasurably. I know that that is how it behaves with a Picture placeholder on a MASTER slide. That behavior should be propagated to the slide level for images that are laid out custom on a slide without a master image placeholder.

  19. Change all textboxes language setting

    Now you need to change each slide by slide to affect all text-boxes language setting, would be convenient with a setting with "change all text-boxes to this language" setting.
