  1. FIX automatic default to grayscale printing when printing in black and white

    In the latest release (Build 9126.2116), whenever I attempt to print a document in pure black and white or colour (both new and existing documents), the print dialog automatically reverts to grayscale. This is a new error I have not encountered before. Printing to Microsoft PDF is not affected by this error but is clearly an unwieldy workaround.

    • Export PowerPoint slides to SVG

      I would like to be able to export slides as an SVG image. Since Visio can do this, it shouldn't be any problem adding feature to MS Office apps.

      • Add Mekko charts to display market shares

        Mekko charts are great to display shares between entities. See an example here as it is supported by the popular add-in Think Cell: https://www.think-cell.com/en/support/manual/mekko.shtml

        The introduction of the Treemap was already a great addition. The Mekko charts let you however structure the data better if you want to show different segments for example.

          • Shape spacing and alignment indicators using keyboard

            When using the keyboard to move the shapes around / fine positioning. The alignment and spacing indicators do not show up. If you click on a shape with the mouse you can see them, but that means you have to take you hands off the keyboard to get that information. The alignment and spacing indicators should work when suing the keyboard.

                現在、この翻訳機能は約款により企業内での利用ができません。(商用利用にあたる為)これでは、広く機能を利用いただけないのでサブタイトルとスライドの翻訳機能は企業内で利用できると定義して欲しい。

                    • Make the Microsoft Mathematics Add-In available for PowerPoint 2016 and 365

                      Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 is a fantastic Computer Algebra System with excellent graphing features. It allows you to solve math problems, even complex formula, and then graph them in graphs that could have the variables manipulated. It is a great teaching and visualization tool, which after having installed .Net 3.5, can be well installed on Windows 10 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15702, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Mathematics).
                      Word and OneNote 2013 had a cool Add-in for Microsoft Mathematics 4.0, and we have asked to extend the Add-in to Office 2016.
                      Please add it to PowerPoint 2016 too, or even better, to all current and future Office…

                            I wish you could more easily change to portrait slides, it should be one button on the home page instead of so hidden in the commands. Thx!

                                      • idée de création, choix non aléatoire

                                        Bonjour
                                        j'utilise beaucoup le concepteur (idées de conception). Je trouve cela vraiment très bien. Petit bémol mais tout de même gênant, si je fais un copier-coller de la diapositive, je ne retrouve pas toujours les même propositions. J'aimerais beaucoup pouvoir avoir une certaine unité d'une présentation à l'autre (et d'une diapo à m'autre) mais les propositions changent d'un ppt ou d'une diapo à l'autre selon l'image, le texte...
                                        Je trouverais sympa et professionnel qu'on puisse "appeler" les modèles proposés ou aller dans un banque et cliquer sur ce qu'on veut, afin d'avoir une belle charte graphique stable.

                                        merci
                                        MC

                                        • Just wanted to say thank you to Microsoft for making your office product so easy to use.

I was able to create a power point presentation, add music, convert it to a .wmv file and post it on YouTube. All of this with minimal computer experience. I think it says a lot about the hard work and innovation of your programmers. See it for yourself at:
                                          Is my life worth 15 minutes of your time and $1.00? You can leave your answer here.
