  1. Why limit Macs abilities for Office 2016?

    I am a HS teacher in a district with all Macs. My students need the full version of 2016. We would pay for the full version just like a PC. This is hurting my students!! The books do not match the Mac version. They are HATING computers/computers aps.

    • Like i have no idea how this happened...

      So went to put a copy into dropbox - it never got there... dunno maybe its in the cloud - the original document is there 0 bytes - the backup copy is there minus any photos - an older version is there minus over a days' work - why did it not come back - the photos were in a preview but could not be accessed then all of these disappeared... seems pretty poor to me.... guess its not really a priority to fix this kinda stuff - maybe its that last update that messed things up... I might as…

      • You can not copy anything from safari and paste to PPT.

        You can not copy anything from safari and paste to PPT. The clipboard icon pops up with 2 options. Neither help.

            • Font colour in notes section

              Allow the notes section in powerpoint to be any colour and allow highlighting. This is especially useful when taking notes in lectures etc and will be useful when revising

                • BACKSLASH character is always replaced with YEN character in Japanese Environment

                  Backslash character is always replaced with Yen character, in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac (Japanese Environment). In the previous version, it had an option to prevent the auto conversion in Preferences pane, but it doesn't in PowerPoint 2016. It's a big problem when we want to show some programming codes or prepare presentations for English people.

                  The good fix is not to prepare any character conversion for us. We DO it by ourselves if needed.

                    • Shortcut for format copy and paste is in previous version but not in Powerpoint 2016

                      I am a heavy user for powerpoint. I found quite confused that why there is a shortcut (command+shift+C) for format copying and pasting in both Powerpoint 2016 for windows and Word 2016 for mac, but not available in Powerpoint 2016 for mac???

                      • 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…

                          • After switching to mac I am desperately missing the trigger function for animations. These are essential for in-depth presentations!

                            I cannot fully understand why this is not implemented in the mac version of PowerPoint.

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  With teams passing Powerpoint back and forth, prior members can ignore typos in a spell check and future spell checks will not catch. Need this function in PPT Mac version.
