  1. Clipart

    in Powerpoint 2010 we could use Clipart and customize it to include company graphics, which were indexed and thus searchable via keywrds.
    That allowed our users to create a presentation with our company's concepts and graphics.
    Starting in PowerPoint 2013 this option was removed, and replaced by 2 options:
    1. The Bing online search for images and clip-arts (which searches for generally available graphics on the Internet)
    2. Connect to the user's OneDrive and add files from there. (which are personal user files)
    Both of these options do not deliver what we need, which is a centrally managed (add /…

    • Automatically show the total number of slides

      PowerPoint allows me to insert slide numbers. I'd like to be able to have it worded as "2 (of 12)", "3 (of 12)", etc.

      • Notes Panel should be at right or allow to change position

        There is no reason to keep "Notes Panel" at slide bottom, nowdays almost everyone has a wide screen, the current position is uncomfortable for editing.
        This panel should be at right or allow to change position.

        • Put the EYE icon on the LEFT in the Selection Pane

          If the space allocated to the selection pane is small or a shape has a long name, the EYE icon on the right can get pushed out of view and becomes inaccessible. Put the icon on the left and the problem disappears.

          • Problem with Digital laserpointer functionality in Powerpoint 2016 MSI version.

            When we use the digital laserpoint in the powerpoint presenter view of the Office 2016 MSI version. With certain presentation when we move the mouse a lot in the presenter view screen and then ask for the next sllide. The computer seems to hang for a couple of seconnds. If you then ask multiple times for next slide we get even the application stopped responding. If you wait long enough the presentation continues. We don't have the issue with Office 365 version latest build. The OS we use is Windows 10 latest build. With the latest build of Office click…

            • Support for Newtek NDI as Display Outputs

              NDI - Network Device Interface
              Is a cross platform royalty free Video Over IP technology. Predominantly used in Broadcast and Webcast type events but gaining popularity in other areas such as Digital Signage.
              Any computer can be an NDI Receiver so you can show presentation on many displays on a network.
              You can by dedicated NDI Receivers
              Ideally we would have the option to send PresenterView and PresentationView as separate NDI Sources.

                • A more updated and contemporary library of PowerPoint templates.

                  I like the look of the Keynote templates. However, I cannot find anything in PowerPoint templates with such bold and yet simple looks.

                  • Allow Grayscale Features on Chart Labels

                    Would love to have ability to change grayscale settings on chart data labels. For example, in B&W my stacks that have dark fills also have dark font data labels and it's very hard to see. I currently have to work around that by using text boxes and it's time-consuming.

                        • track viewership

                          It would be incredible to understand who from my organization has opened up and viewed an Office 365 document. If I send a document out I have no idea who actually opened it up or for how long. It would be great to understand who opened it, and for how long they viewed it and maybe which slides they viewed.

                            I want to scroll on the current slide without changing slides all the time.

                                  • PowerPoint to html , css and js

                                    I will like PowerPoint more if there is exporter to html , css and js .
                                    I know Word already have html exporter , but word and powerpoint are different .
                                    eg. if i want to place image in powerpoint , i can place it where i want freely , but in word , i must use space or enter to move it away , and text run away from image (so around image is just empty space ).

                                      In edit mode, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut that allows me to type a slide number to be taken directly to that slide.

                                      For example, if I want to go to slide 2, I would be able to press Ctrl+M (for example), type 2 in a dialog box, and press enter to go to slide 2.

                                        • Loop Slideshow checkbox on Ribbon

                                          Add "[ ] Loop Slideshow" checkbox to the Ribbon under Slide Show. We shouldn't have to to go to the old Set Up Slide Show Dialog.
