        • Add the ability to ungroup vector objects in Powerpoint so that they can be editable!

          In previous versions we could import .emf files and ungroup them so that they could be edited. Why was this functionality removed???

          This is very important as my clients like to be able to modify the icons I design for them, to change colours, etc. It was very frustrating that I was able to do this previously, but now can't!

          I can now import SVG files and change the colour in Powerpoint, but I can't ungroup the object into parts so it's fully editable, why is this?

          I now have to use Open Office, import .emf files, 'break' the object,…

            • Mac OS color palette no longer works in 16.10 (180204)

              If you select "more fill colors" to browse the OS-level color selection options, there is a palette of 18 custom colors on the bottom that is consistent across all apps. If you click on a color, it will highlight the color, but there is no longer any way to select the color for use on the item in your slide. Before, you could select the color, click OK, and the color would be applied to the object. But now, the palette is non-functional.

              Microsoft's color palette management is so poor, this is like adding insult to injury.

                    • Clean up embedded movie files when slide containing media is deleted.

                      I've noticed that embedded media files don't get cleaned up and removed from the PPTX file when you delete the slide containing the media. This contributes to file size bloat.

                      • More optimization features to reduce file sizes

                        Please add an optimization feature like in the PC version that allows you to compress embedded multimedia files/videos within you presentation to significantly reduce file sizes. Otherwise support in linking visually an online video through an iframe environment from a 3rd party video service would be appreciated as an alternative solution.

                          • What happened to the "Save as movies" in Mac Office 2016 Powerpoint? This is a feature that we use a lot.

                            Please put the "Save as movies" function back in as a feature. We use it to create short clips.

                              Would be great to be able to freeze the current slide output showing when in presentation mode to allow viewing and quick amends to future slides.

                                  • You should be able to put placeholder images in the back so you can put an image over it.

                                    Putting design elements over a placeholder image is a feature regulary asked by clients. More layering would be very nice.

                                      • Bug: Table borders are uneven

                                        This is not an idea, but a bug report. In PowerPoint 2016—in both Mac and Windows versions—table borders are uneven.

                                        The outside borders of a table are half the thickness/weight of the interior borders. This is a major problem for detail-oriented designers. Doubling up the outer border is a workaround I'd like to avoid since the table will appear different in previous versions and will change when this bug is fixed.

                                        It's not an intermittent bug—it's just the way it's incorrectly programmed to render.

                                        • Accurate Grid / Guide setup

                                          Please make it easier, quicker and more accurate to setup grids and guides. It should be as simple as inputting number columns / rows and gutter width and they the guides would be created.

                                          I currently create my gris in InDesign and then paste an image into PPT and create the guidelines one by one....
