  1. NDI output support for PowerPoint

    I'd like to recommend a feature to be added to the PowerPoint application. NDI is a high quality, low latency professional video IP format that I think would be a good addition to this application. I would allow you to share the output of PowerPoint on other peoples computer using a free NDI Monitor application or send the output into professional video production solutions.

    The Skype team at Microsoft has added NewTek NDI support into their product. PowerPoint would be the next product that I think should be enhanced with this royalty free technology. You can learn more about NDI…

    • Prevent Transparent Background in Pasted Image from Printing as Black

      When I copy sparklines from Excel and Paste Special into an image placeholder as a Picture, the sparklines appear pixelated. When I print that slide, the sparklines have a rectangular black background (instead of transparent) that extends to the limits of the cells in Excel.

        • add 'about file' in 'file' section, as we are not able to recognize through the opend file itself, where the file is located.

          add 'about file' in 'file' section, as we are not able to recognize through the opened file itself now, where the file is located.

          we have to take much pain to know.

          it can be added in all MS Office programs. and will be helping a lot.

            • Allow matrix alignment options in PowerPoint Equation Editor

              The Equation Editor in Word allows alignment options to be specified for matrices. The PowerPoint version of the Equation Editor does not. This make Powerpoint versions standard mathematical constructions (e.g. definition of functions by cases) ugly. Please, can the Equation editor in PowerPoint be the same as the one in Word?

              • Add Posture Changeable 3D Models of Persons

                If PowerPoint can add 3D models of persons (male, female, child, adult, etc.) and make the posture and facial expression of the models changeable and controllable, for example, a user can change the posture of a hand or change smiling to crying, then PowerPoint will become a very powerful tool for users to draw people's without need of drawing skills. The posture-change function can be designed in such way that no matter how crazy a user tries to change a posture, the software always results in a reasonable posture. For example, if a user pull the hand above the head…

                • 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.

                      • Morph for Charts

                        It would be great if charts could take advantage of the morph transition as well. Currently, charts just fade when moving from slide to slide, even if the only difference between two slides is the data in the charts. It would help illustrate effectively the difference in value between two different datasets
