  3. Adding a history toolbar drop down menu for last 10-15 commands / actions

    In creating slides for an image filled teaching lecture would like to access my last actions because they usually repeat for each slide I make. I think a drop down button showing last options would be useful to me. Once there was a box with image manager where size, position, crop were on in one place

  4. opentype advanced feature support

    Enable the "features" of an OpenType font. Especially the "Number Spacing" feature is really important to line up in tabular form

  6. Bring the file menu from PC on all Microsoft Office applications

    On the PC version of Microsoft office the file menu in the ribbon should be brought over to Mac as it will make both version equal. And it looks better.

  7. Keep Powerpoint animation going (active screen) when selecting other application

    In this new normal more and more online customer meetings are being done. I use powerpoint with animated clock countdown timers and integrated music at for instance the beginning and coffee breaks of the meetings. I start up slide mode and everything starts as it suppose to. I am using Teams to share it with customers by selecting window and then the powerpoint application. So far so good.

    My problem is that as soon as you select another application on your screen by clicking on it the powerpoint animation and music stops until you activate the powerpoint application again. This…

  8. Please include the compress media option to PowerPoint for Mac

    The Windows version of PowerPoint has the option to compress media files in a presentation, but the Mac version doesn't
    This kind of differences degrades the quality of the product, there should be function parity across platforms

  10. can't insert .avi video into powerpoint 2019 for Mac

    I couldn't insert .avi video into powerpoint 2019 for Mac these days.

    it shows a message like this:
    'PowerPoint cannot insert a video from the selected file. Verify that the path and file format are correct, and then try again.'

    But it worked not long ago when I handled my work with powerpoint 2016 embedded Flip4Mac.

    I just wonder why this happen and how to resolve this problem.

  15. Powerful features for designers using PPT

    Please have your developers use and become proficient at a basic graphic design program. Graphic designers by and large are your primary users and happen to use software that has a designer's logic to it. Powerpoint's basic functionality and workflow consistently ignores this "best practice" development approach and causes so many discontinuities (read: Frustration) that if it wasn't so maddening it would be laughable. That said, there are some basic things that would make the program more user friendly:


    1. Bezier curves: This is a extremely critical function! Illustrator provides fine controls that makes curves easy and quick to do -…

  16. Turn off "last modified" highlighting on sharepoint presentations

    Whenever I open a doc I haven't opened in weeks that needs my review, it's a huge distraction to see all of the little green "last modified by..." highlights throughout. I understand that these can be useful, but it would be great to be able to turn them on and off.

  17. Graphic defect

    Hi, I have to report a graphic defect in the Office Powerpoint for Mac print interface. In the print box, by activating the "Show details" option, below the "Custom interval" flag, there is an additional gray flag that appears as a graphic error in the print box. It is an annoying and unresolved thing from the first release of PowerPoint for Mac. How can I send a screen shot to show it?

  18. Selection Pane: Move In/Out of a group

    Moving items in the selection pane in/out of a group would be really helpful. For example if you've built a complex animation on a group item, then realize you need to add another element. (text box, icon, whatever). But so often we have to select the new element and the group, then Group those. This breaks the animations and sequencing of our builds.

    If in the Selection pane you could just drag the new element into the group (already positioned and laid out on slide) then the parent level group retains its animations.

  20. Need ability to create custom Theme fonts like we can on PC

    In all Office for Mac programs, we currently have the ability to change the global Theme or Theme Colors or Theme Fonts.

    Additionally, we can create custom Theme Color Sets in PowerPoint for Mac, which will flow to all the other Office for Mac programs. But we currently don't have the ability to create a custom Font Set in any of the Office for Mac programs. The workaround is to create the Font Set in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint on a PC (if you have one or you have to ask a friend) and THEN you have to copy that…
