    • Measurements in pixels

      It absolutely EVADES my understanding of (software) design concepts as of WHY is every measurement in centimeters (or inches), not in pixels. Is the reason for this softwares existence printing out the presentations (easily measured in cm) OR is it actually for presenting them on screen space (quite impossible to measure in cm)? Which one is it, I'm confused...
      (No, I'm actually not confused – put in the f*cking pixels, it's impossible to design without!!!!)

        • Provide possibility to embed videos in PDFs exported from PPT

          When exporting to PDF, I would like to have the option of embedding all videos directly and automatically in the PDF.
          I know I can embed videos afterwards in an existing PDF, but this is way to cumbersome, especially for presentations that contain several videos.
          PPT should embed the videos in the PDF even if they are only linked to from the PPT file.

          • Add "Number Styles" in Text Effects

            Please bring over the additional “Text Effect” options over from Word, specifically Number Styles. I have to use this setting when working with numbers in my Company’s font or else numbers are the wrong size.

            • Allow pixels as measurement unit

              cm and inches are not useful for digital only presentations, while pixels are a extremely useful unit. Please add native support for this

              • allow me to save a pptx file as pdf that is much smaller, please. On windows PC the 44 MB ppt goes to 3 MB pdf. On MacBook it's 40 MB pdf.

                on IOS MacBookPro please allow saving a pptx file as pdf that is much smaller. On windows PC the 44 MB ppt saves as 3 MB pdf. On MacBook it's 40 MB pdf which is far too big for our email sharing purpose.

                          Microsoft Word allows you to remove identifiable information about a user from comments. This same feature should be available for PowerPoint, too.

                              Mac's powerpoint slide layout panel is showing blank slides. A "broken" slide will view correctly in the main area and in presentation mode, but appears as a blank white slide in the layout panel.

                                  Please consider adding better embedding of PDF files into slides.
                                  By that I mean two things:
                                  - more view options: option to select which page should be shown, two-page view etc.
                                  - editing: ability to fill out a PDF form during presentation (& also save the inputed data inside the pptx file)

                                  • Please add cluster stacked chart in the chart type

                                    Currently one can make either charts with clustered column/bar or stacked column/bars. Given Hierarchal chart are already introduced, can we expand that capability to give stacked columns that are also clustered?

                                    Use case example: Region-wise performance (X-axis) of different products (stacks in column), in current year vs previous year (cluster columns)

                                    • Allow Custom Quick Access Toolbar to be placed below ribbon like in PC (with short keys)

                                      PC QAT was a super efficient way to format slides and achieve uniformity across slides, presentations. It was placed right where one can simply click next to slide. Alternatively, one just had to memorize the custom shortkey (Alt+1, Alt +2 ...etc.)
                                      In Mac, the placement is odd, right at the top & needs too many clicks there to access options. Further, the shortcut keys require pressing 3 buttons to achieve what can be done by 2 simultaneous keys in PC.

                                        Currently, the PDF export on Mac doesn't respect the dimensions of the slides, which means that a white border is added. If the bottom right corner of my slide looks like this in PowerPoint...

                                        ... then in the exported PDF, it looks like this:

                                        https://imgur.com/a/r5LjaKH

                                        (In both cases, the gray background is not part of the content any more.)

                                        Would it be possible to make PDF export borderless? PDF is a good fallback format if you're presenting on someone else's computer, but the borders look unprofessional.

                                        • Saving a pptx documents in pdf

                                          The pdf files are very big....bigger than when saved thru MS Office Powerpoint

                                          Changing the settings is not the right answer as content may be "un-proper" to read (like pictures, flows, icons, etc...)

                                          Please enable a solution where the content is exactly what it is in pptx with the same resolution than with MS Office pptx documents.
