  1. Please remove the 'nag' update ribbon!

    I have tried PowerPoint 2016 & found it useless for my needs with so many features removed. I have since reverted to PowerPoint 2011 but now constantly receive a seriously annoying 'nag' update ribbon everytime I open PowerPoint.
    Can you please remove this. It is about as useful as that paperclip and annoys me even more because PowerPoint 16 is so bad.

    • Keynote

      Import/Export Keynote presentations. Keynote has had this feature for years. It would be nice if it were reciprocal.

        • Converting Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese

          When I need to prepare two version of presentations for viewers, in Traditional and Simplified Chinese, I could not find a function to convert the file directly and easily.
          I need to translate each text box one by one every time and it is very time-consuming.

          • What about a sequence of appearing depending on the answer of the participants

            About animation, I would like the words to appear only when the auditors have given the answer. Like there are 7 words to be given, and when that word is mentionned, then I can make it appear. So there is no particular sequence, it will only be depending on the answers. When the 7 words have been found, I can go to the next slide

            • Slide Looping Support

              I would like an easier way to loop a slide. In this use case, I have a slide which, through a complex series of steps, is able to loop the slide. The purpose of the looping slide is to present either images, or text, with animations on a single slide in the deck. The information is presented to conference attendees while they enter a room. Once it is time to start the presentation, a key is pressed to advance to the next slide.

              • Ability to trim a video!

                PLEASE add ability to trim a video (I just bought PPT, love it, but am shocked that I can't trim a video while those on a PC can)

                • Text arrows show up as irrelevant symbols

                  With the new software update released within the last week, text arrows now show up as irrelevant symbols. This is very frustrating, especially as a student. Please fix, this wouldn't have happened with keynote.

                      I imported (as I was told to) Thousands of bought legitimate images into the old clip art gallery package. I need a way of retrieving these and their tags for current use

                        • Please give back the gridlines

                          In older versions of PowerPoint (at least on PCs) there was an option to display gridlines. Unable to find it on my current Mac version of PowerPoint I visited several support websites. All confirmed that this option no longer exists.

                          The gridlines were a very USEFUL option. I used them regularly. Why was the decision made to take them away?

                          Please put this option back.

                          Thank you

                                  • Opening an embedded PowerPoint file in Excel documents

                                    Hi.
                                    I work for a large Digital services firm. Many of my customers embeds a Powerpoint file inside an Excel document. Unfortunately, when I try to open the PPT file it won't open, because I've been told Office for Mac currently don't support embedded PPT.

                                    Can Microsoft fix this in the future?

                                    • Allow arrow weight to be 1 when line weight is 1.

                                      Currently the arrow on a line will not change weight with the line when the weight gets below 2. This makes for some awful-looking arrows!

                                        • Resolution of photos is too low!

                                          I have tried every possible fix to increase the resolution of the photos inserted in slides to no avail. PowerPoint for Mac does NOT produce a quality presentation - substandard and unprofessional.
