    • 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....

      • Integrate Office Forms [also applies to Windows version]

        I'd love see a Office Forms integration into PowerPoint (both Windows and Mac of course).

        Here's how I image that:
        You just insert a Forms link (or even create a form completely inside PP) and it will show a QR code and a short link when the slide is loaded during the presentation. The audience opens the form on their smartphones and answer the questions. During that a counter shows the already sent answers. Is everyone done, you can go through each question and how many did it right/wrong and what the average points are.

        • In Edit Mode, jump to different slides quickly in long presentations

          1) There is no function to jump to specific slides in longer presentations. In older versions of PowerPoint, I could right click on a thumbnail, see the number of the slide I was on, and choose to jump to a specific slide. Now, I must scroll up and down long PowerPoints to see the slide I need.
          2) When editing long presentations, there used to be a function that would show the slide you were on, and using scrollar, could quickly drag to another slide.
          3) Older versions of PowerPoint had this. It was a real time saver. I could…

            • The ability to customize the entire color palette

              Would like the ability to customize the entire color palette. I would like to override the auto-generated tints and hues...

              The autogenerated tints and hues never match the clients branding and create lots confusion.

                            • scrollable Images

                              it would be nice to have a feature that allows to have scrollable images (e. g. to show a responsive layout in a Smartphone-Mockup). And maybe just as a simple feature - not as a workaround using Developer-Tools. ;)

At first, I thought it was my computer's problem. However, after I (1) reinstalled Microsoft office, (2) reset my laptop and (3) changed to a new laptop, the problem persisted until now. I have tested same settings on Microsoft Office 2011 and came to know that Microsoft Office 2011 still function as expected. I tested cross version using copy (from PowerPoint 2011) and paste (to…

                                          It would be great to have an interface between PowerPoint and OneNote on the Mac.
                                          OneNotes function to import printouts in pdf and annotate and enrich them is excellent.
                                          The current way from PowerPoint to OneNote is to print into pdf and then import this printout.
                                          Wish you would establish a "print to OneNote" function with the same functionality as "print to pdf" (i. e. chose pages, aso.). Instead of saving this to disk, one should chose the OneNote target (book and page).
