  1. Apply Morph Transition for Edited Points

    I would like the ability to morph between instances of the same shape (on sequential slides), but with edited points.

    For instance, if I have a circle, and I want to drag the tangent handles out slightly or maybe even move the points relative to each other using the Edit Points tool for each slide. I would like PowerPoint to morph the tangent lines smoothly, recognizing that it's the same object, but with modified points/tangents.

    This is different from scaling/moving the object as a whole.

    This will allow us to make more complex animation without needing to change anything in…

    • 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.

      • “appear” animation

        Using the “appear” animation on a MacBook Pro, with the effect set to “by letter” Should have a setting to adjust the wait time between each letter appearing. This option is available on a windows machine in 2010. Why is it not available in 2016 on a MacBook Pro.

              • Enable application-specific units

                I should be able to toggle between inches and centimeters, but also POINTS and PIXELS. This was in 2011 and now it's gone?! WTF.

                      • Support importing of animated png files (.apng)

                        APNG files would be a great way to add animated alpha-channeled objects to the PPT canvas.

                          • Custom Colors for Mac users

                            It is frustrating that some of the abilities on a PC PowerPoint version are not the same as on a Mac version. I would like to be able to create a Custom Colors section that appears under the Theme Colors palette. I understand this can be achieved on a PC but would like this available on a Mac please, please, please. Thank you.

                                Currently we can't set all Fonts (ex.Hiragino or Yu Gothic) in default Font on slide master. If we can choose much more Fonts, it is more productive.

                                  • Animation Toggle

                                    Please add the ability to "hide" or "turn off" specific Animations in the Animation Pane. Like the eyeball in the Selection Pane.

                                    It would be useful to have an animation applied to an object, but to have it turned off. This feature could be used to view other animations in the stack by themselves, or in the case that you don't need that animation now, but might need to turn it on later (without having to completely recreate it).

                                      Previous versions of PPT allowed live previewing of condensing or expanding of font character spacing. It is now no longer available and it a lot of time gets spent trying out a spacing value and having to go back and forth to get it just as needed. Please bring Live Preview back.

                                      • Since Updating PowerPoint Consuming Large Amount of RAM w/ Videos

                                        Since updating to the newest version of PowerPoint, I am receiving large fluctuations in RAM usage when playing videos embedded in my presentations. The RAM is used by a kernel_task, and I have recorded spikes > 5 Gb in RAM usage. This causes a System Application Memory warning, forcing me to shutdown and restart my computer. After downgrading PowerPoint to a previous version, everything seems to be working well once again.

                                          Not an idea but can you stop removing images from presentations in mac - my colleagues and I are losing hours of work since last update

                                          Using Google Stream and Macbook Air - everything up to date
