        • Comparing different Versions of Power Point, would really help.

          Also functions like merge would additionally help.

          • Add support for ActiveX

            Many Windows-users assume that Mac and PC versions of PowerPoint have equivalent functionality and expect Mac users to be able to use PowerPoint presentations with ActiveX built in, which causes difficulties when this is not the case. Things created with one version of the program should be compatible with the other and not having that is a severe oversight.

            • Add keyboard shortcuts management

              Some input methods (IMs) have keyboard shortcuts using a control-key. PowerPoint treats a control-key as a command-key, then the shortcuts of IMs are robbed by PowerPoint. This decreases input efficiency. Therefore, a switch to select whether using the control-key treatment is desired.

              • PowerPoint 16.11 Build 180214 always crashes on OSX 10.13.3.

                Every time I select View>Master>Slide Master or the Design ribbon, Powerpoint crashes due to the OfficeArt module.

                • In Edit Mode, jump to different slides quickly in long presentations

                  1) There is no function to jump to specific slides in longer presentations. In older versions of PowerPoint, I could right click on a thumbnail, see the number of the slide I was on, and choose to jump to a specific slide. Now, I must scroll up and down long PowerPoints to see the slide I need.
                  2) When editing long presentations, there used to be a function that would show the slide you were on, and using scrollar, could quickly drag to another slide.
                  3) Older versions of PowerPoint had this. It was a real time saver. I could…

                  • When using a projector in "mirror mode" and presenting to audience, slides do not advance on screen.

                    I do presentations all the time, but they are "how to" presentations to audiences. I need to "MIRROR" when using a projector. I do not use "presenter mode." I need to work my computer and point to things on the slides with my mouse as I talk to audiences. That is why I need to "mirror." Or, I use a remote control clicker to advance certain slides. The slides do NOT advance on the screen when I am mirroring. I am sitting at my computer, clicking on slides, or using the clicker (in presentation mode). The DO advance on my…

                    • Please add the trigger for Mac users. Teachers need this feature to make games for student learning.

                      We need the powepoint trigger feature added to mac. I am a teacher, and I like to make learning fun. I need the trigger to make the animations work on the smartboard. I made animations without the trigger and they don't transfer to the smartboard. We have to use the mouse to click on the animations. It is very frustrating to spend so much time creating a presentation that I later find doesn't even work. Please add the trigger feature.Thank you for your help : )

                      • In edit mode, increasing the window size should also increase the zoom

                        Currently, when you resize the window, the zoom factor doesn't scale with it. In case of increasing the window size, this results in a large amount of unused screen real estate (until you manually zoom in to correct it again). It would be nice if PPT automatically scaled the content to make it fit the window while resizing.

                            • Make top/left co-ordinates measure from the centre, not the edge

                              As of PowerPoint 16.9, the 'Top/Left' co-ordinates shown in a yellow box when dragging an object measure the position of the object from the *edge* of the slide - not the centre, as it was before. The guides still work from the centre - so this is inconsistent, and makes accurate object placement very very difficult.

                              Please roll this back to how it was, or give us the option. Thank you.

                              • Make objects snap to guides

                                After adding horizontal and vertical guides, and then using them to position an object by dragging it, objects do not snap to those guides. After adding a guide 3cm from the centre, for instance, and then trying to drag an object to align with this, PPT will only let me move to 2.05 or 3.02 cm from the centre. Only by zooming to 400% and trying repeatedly can I get this right. These small differences matter a great deal - slides can look very unprofessional with misaligned objects! Thanks.
