    • The tilt wheel on my mouse should scroll left and right

      I design a lot of complex slides where I need to stage content outside the active slide area. In Powerpoint 2011 I could use the tilt wheel on my mouse to scroll left and right to view that content, but in 2016 tilting my scroll wheel left or right advances down through my slides. I don't know if this is an enhancement so much as a fix.

          I'm a professional PowerPoint designer in NYC, so I use it every day. Would be great if you could do the following. (btw -- the new update - is a lot better!)

          1. Lock items
          2. Be able decrease character spacing less than 1.0
          3. Be able to make more than one picture transparent at the same time
          4. Get rid of the default setting that increases the size of the slide sorter view (in the left hand bar) - I don't want to reset this every time I design a deck
          5. When cropping an image into a shape…

          • Startup Speed just as fast as Apple Keynote...

            Why does powerpoint startup so slow? Why does it have to load the fonts that takes minutes! I can start and close Keynote 4 times before I can launch powerpoint once!?

            • Please move the "Paste Option" box somewhere else

              When pasting a shape, means I intent to work with, I don't need any box exactly on the element I want to catch/modify/do something else with. Even if one of the options are checked the box still remain and handicap me manipulating the shape. When working whole day on a presentation with a lot of copy & paste, I don't want to always to hit the ESC button hundred times/day.

              • Powerpoint used to have a "send to word" or "export to word" function. Please re-establish this feature

                Office 2016 for Mac
                With "send to word", the ppt presentation with speakers notes could be sent to a table in word. The left column was the slide number, the 2nd column was the slide, and the 3rd column was the speakers notes. Each row was for a slide and notes.
                Please re-instate this feature.
                Alternatively provide a method for the add-in "ppt2word" to work in Office 2016 Mac.

                • Restore picture manager from ppt 2004

                  Picture manager did it all! Select all. Crop precisely all images
                  From right and or top and or bottom and from left. Position images or text boxes. What a wonder for those who work with sequential diagnostic ct orMRI or ultrasound images. Workarounds are so stupid and time consuming. "Macros". Programming. Using 2 computers ( me). Using 2
                  OS on same Computer. What is so hard for MS to retrofit and create picture manager for ppt 365. Or allow Jim Gordon to integrate an add in for office 366

                  • Action

                    I feel that hyper link is not clear enough, so you should add in action like in the 2008 version. I prefer the 2008 version because it much clearer than all your other versions.
                    Thank you

                    • Allow Sharing of PowerPoint Slideshow on YouTube, & Vimeo

                      Apple's Keynote has the ability To share SlideShows on YouTube. Even the 2016 PowerPoint application has a richer feature set such as individual Slide sounds which Keynote doesn't. But KeyNote does allow you to publish a Slideshow on YouTube. I'd like to see that ability and also ability to do so on Vimeo as well because Vimeo produces much better quality output.

                        • Czech language support

                          Many customers in Czech Republic would love to see full Czech language support = localized interface and grammar check. Both features are available in Office for Windows

                          • Tables in PowerPoint – Add Tab Stops Gone "ctrl + ⇥"

                            In PP 2011 you could add tab stops within tables using "ctrl + ⇥". This keyboard shortcut seems to be gone. You cannot add tab stops in table cells any longer. Pls get this back urgently.

                              • Allow it to work with SharePoint without issues

                                Since some updates it does not work with SharePoint anymore: Either no reaction after opening a file or error message or an endless loop telling that there is a newer version on the server and when you agree to load this, it comes up with the same but you cannot edit it because there is a new version on the server...

                                It looks like there are some serious issues with authentifikation due to some new 360 mechanism ...

                                • Customizable ribbon

                                  I think that a customizable ribbon on PowerPoint enables huge productivity gains... Shortcuts help you to rearrange and align very quickly the elements for instance. The less you click, the faster you work!

                                    • Title Case without Small Words

                                      Powerpoint needs an "intelligent" case option to capitalize every word with the exception of small prepositions and other words such as "to," "of," "a," etc.

                                      Macros have been written for this, but a simple additional option of change case would be awesome--or even a check box option under preferences.
