      I'd like designers add zoom in/out feature in presenter view mode in Office 365 for MAC, as it has been done for Windows version.
      Thank you in advance.

        • Embed Fonts

          how many votes do you guys need to take action on this? Millions?? Its ludicrous that its 2017, I have a device in my pocket that gives me access to a world of data, we have self-driving cards, machine learning, etc... and yet my flipping MAC PowerPoint can't embed font styles.
          Come on MS. Get with the program.

          • Standard Control-key support

            Whenever I'm entering text on a Mac, in *every* application except for Office, I have access to control-key navigation to move left/right/up/down etc without taking my hands off the home keys. With Word the problem isn't so bad because you can remap keys. But this makes PowerPoint very painful to use for a seasoned Mac user, because we type something like control-E to go to end-of-ilne (in every other Mac app), and PowerPoint has repurposed this to some weird nonstandard thing that centers the text. PowerPoint is not being a good citizen of the Mac platform. For more background, see…

              • Audio Recording entire presentation

                Allow powerpoint to record audio through the entire presentation. I know you can record clips for a certain slide but that doesn't cover it since we are not allowed to type on the slide during a audio recording. This would be VERY beneficial for students going through lecture and would influence us to use powerpoint more rather than Notability which allows this function of continuous recording and editing.

                  As it can be done on PowerPoint for Windows, adding "trim video" its a desirable feature for most of the office 365 users

                      • Improve Accessibility during Presentation Mode

                        I love how much PowerPoint on Mac became accessible in a short period of time!
                        I'm on fast track 15.39 (170919), and I have some suggestions to make it easier for Voiceover user to use PowerPoint during presentation mode.
                        1. Presenter view:
                        Voiceover doesn't seem to be able to read the content of slides during presenter view. It just says image.
                        2. Highlight:
                        Visually Impaired users cannot use pointer, so it would be great if the texts are editable during the presentation, so we can bold, highlight, and so on during the presentation to emphasize. WE can do it while…

                          • Recover previous keyboard shortcuts

                            In Fast insider PowerPoint 2016, 16.7.171008, keyboard shortcuts disappear, and doesn't exist a way to back to default.

                            Disappear the most important: Save, Copy, Cut, Paste, Paste Special, Undo, Redo, Select all, etc.

                            Need an option to recover back to default shortcut or a way to set new shortcuts.

                              • Track Changes

                                Despite the availability of the "Track Changes" feature in both Word and Excel, PowerPoint continues to lag behind on this development, forcing authors/creators to use the wholly inadequate "Compare" feature.

                                For those of us who use PowerPoint in the research world, having the ability to update and edit slides while using a Track Changes feature is essential in order to ensure that our data, references, and images are current and accurate. It also allows for others within the authoring process to check and edit our work, while allowing us to properly accredit them for their changes/edits.

                                At this point, it's…

                                • Embedding fonts

                                  Why use a Mac to make a PowerPoint if you can't embed fonts? It's completely pointless to spend hours making a beautiful presentation, only to find the fonts can't be saved. Seriously. A waste of time.

                                    • Please allow MathType or similar equation editor to be integrated into powerpoint for mac

                                      The built in equation editor is not good. I would love microsoft equation 3.0 to be back. Either that or equation editors like MathType should be made integrable in powerpoint. I wish there were an integrated program to type in latex equation into powerpoint.

                                        • Embed fonts in ppt for mac! Please!

                                          It is so frustrating to use .ppt for this reason! I have to design a lot of presentations and this is so limiting. Ugh
