      • Printing PPT to PDF -> thick lines and images blurry since 16.14 version of powerpoint

        When I export/print a PPTX to a PDF, the images get blurry and the lines get thick. Also problems with spacing of letters. Especially when I select high quality in PDF printing.

          • Clickable checkboxes or radio buttoms

            Since there is no developer tab in ribbon, you cannot add a clickable checkbox or radio buttom to slides. Please add.

            • Web Viewer add-on should Support Cookies

              The current Mac-Version of the Web Viewer Add-on does not support Cookies (the Windows-version does). This makes it unusable for many use cases. I assume this is just a Bug in the Mac-Version. Is there any plan to fix this or is there even a Workaround available at the moment?

              • Option-drag to resize object while keeping it centered

                Why did you take away the feature in previous PPT versions that allowed resizing an object while holding option key to keep center of object in the same place? That was so useful to be able to do this in one step. Now, the center of the object moves with the drag of a corner, and one has to click back on the object after dragging to move it back to its original position. Why do you make things harder for us???

                • Create Client Version Button

                  Make a "create client version" tool which, with one click would let you remove all notes, create a PDF and keep it under 10mb for easily sending to clients.

                              • Embed background music (audio) when exporting slideshows

                                After incorporating MP3 audio file into a PowerPoint slideshow the music does not get exported in either MP4 or MOV format on Office 365 or PowerPoint 2016. Will need to use iMovie. Huge waste of my valuable time.

                                • Zoom

                                  I use Office 2016 and have a 365 for business account. Yet sadly I do have the Zoom button at all. I'm a school teacher and would love to teach them how to do this. A bit upsetting.

                                  Perhaps I'll have to teach them Prezi instead

                                  • Improve "Remove background" tool

                                    I love the "Remove Background" tool for formatting images in PowerPoint and I use it all the time to place an image over another with a transparent background. The new version with the pen doesn't work nearly as well as the old version with the box outline. It always cuts off the edges and it does a poorer job of selecting the parts of the images I want to keep. Make this tool act more like the old version!

                                    • Add an Auto fit option to Notes text

                                      For all versions of PPT - provide an “Auto Fit” option for notes on all slides to help prevent the need to scroll just for one line of notes. Or provide more robust notes formatting.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Option for a FULL uninstallation of Office/PowerPoint

                                          Some bugs could easily be solved by a full un- and re-installation of Office or a sub-product such as PowerPoint.
                                          However, right now, when doing an uninstall, many user-specific settings are kept on the hard-drive and reloaded after re-installing.

                                          It would be very useful to get the option to do a FULL/COMPLETE uninstallation, including for instance all Office's setting-related files. Ideally, for such a full uninstall, the user should still get the possibility to keep some manually selected files/directories, such as his/her templates.

                                          This feature request is linked to the following two other requests:
