    • Give an enamble/disable button for EPS insertion

      Instead of just disabling EPS insertion for us, please include a check box somewhere so we can accept the consequences and be allowed to insert EPSs and see them instead of the can't be displayed message. Some of us are just plain not skilled enough to make changes to the registry and get it right. You have similar check boxes for Trust, VBA etc in Office products so you should be able to give this option as a setting and NOT a registry change. I don't think MS realizes what a game changer this is for those of us who…

                  • Shame on you, Microsoft.

                    I saw on the web that in Powerpoint 2016 you can insert embedded online videos into your Powerpoint presentations... wonderfully I thought just what I needed... ran away and bought Office 2016 for quite a bit of money. But I am now very disappointed with Microsoft... I have now for two days trying to insert embeded online videos... but it does not work... shame on you, Microsoft. Is there any help available ? mikael.leidstedt@telia.com

                                    • Powerpoint can change photoshop :)

                                      For digital purpose usually I use PowerPoint
                                      If I you add accurate sizing to power point that help me to know what is the size of my output I will definitely use power-point instead of Photoshop :)

                                        • New Transition "Blur"

                                          Please add a transition where it detects a full screen picture on a slide and if the "blur" (new transition) is clicked the photo will start clear then begin to blur. You could do this with any Artistic effect but the blur would be the best with the option's on where to start the blur and how long it will take for the full blur to take place.
