  2. Make arrow-lines default to horrizontal, and user can edit.

    Have the "arrow-lines" (lines with arrows) snap to horizontal and possibly also vetical if you move it like that is what you will want. User can move them in between if they want an angel but that is not all that often. They are difficult to get perfectly horizontal the smaller the arrow-lines. 80% of people want them horizontal, 15% vetical and 5% in between, I would estmate.

  3. Could we bring in more complex charts?

    Addition of more charts aside from what's already on board,
    such as: Chord Chart, Sankey Chart, Spiral Graph, Windrose and Arc Diagram
    And an abstracft analogies ribbon full of content for different types of layouts - to be in on par with competition such as infograpia

  4. Adjust Wrap to shape

    I would love to see text in shapes automatically wrapping to the form of the shape. So when rounding the corners of an rectangle for an example, the text-wrapping should automatically adapt to the form and not overflow the borders.

    My suggestion is to do a place that you can change the size of the number for the whole text not for one paragraph

  7. Elbow shape connectors should feature a curved elbow with a radius adjustment handle

    Currently there is no way to create an elbow connector line that has a curved elbow.

    All elbow connectors are only straight 90 degrees corners. Elbow shape connectors should feature a curved elbow with a radius adjustment handle.

    It makes the flowcharts far more easy to read improving readability and of course accessibility at the same time.

  9. Slide Timer Insert Facility Tools

    Actually, We used every time many operation with presentation but actually I need a option that shown every slider timer. Like example - when we start our presentation then slide change page to page but viewer noted the every point that are important in this presentation but sometimes they can't understand how many second keep stay in this slide page and then move to next slide. So I feel that it's better to working and presentation time for showing presentation slide timer input facilicty that are shown analog or digital clock style. Thank you!

  12. Nicer defaults for chart styles

    The currently recommended defaults for chart styles are very crazy-looking and unlikely to be better than what the average user designs. It would be nice to create professional-quality chart templates so users can avoid having to fiddle with settings.

  14. Add lollipop charts to visualize many frequencies cleanly and minimally

    In recent years, lollipop charts have become popular to visualize frequencies of variables. They're especially useful when you have 8+ categories to represent because bar graphs would be too cluttered.

    Example: https://www.data-to-viz.com/graph/lollipop.html

  15. Remove 3D charts because research shows that they are decoded incorrectly

    3D charts have been critiqued by nearly every data visualization researcher and many professionals in the field. Experts know from studies that people interpret them incorrectly and they do not offer anything valuable unless it is a 3D map.

  16. Integrate x-axis and y-axis titles into axes.

    Professional data visualizations from sources like the NY Times' Fivethirtyeight blog integrate the titles of axes into the axes themselves (see https://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Fehrman-Autobiography-0206-1.png?w=575).

    This makes virtually every chart more minimals, cleaner, and improves reading speed. Small touches like these may a huge improvement.

  17. Add more useful data visualizations and better defaults. Include ridegeline plots and confidence envelopes

    New plots like shaded density plots and ridegeline plots (link 1 below, section 9.2) would greatly help show many different data distributions. Most presenters just show means and error bars.

    Shaded confidence envelopes or even hypothetical outcome plots (link 2 below) would be welcome too. Currently, these have to be hacked together in a cumbersome way. In general, studying the data visualization/HCI literature and building features from there would greatly improve charts in MS Office.

    Consider how defaults could be changed so that plots are more minimal and clean, as with NY Times visualizations (link 3 below).

  19. venn diagram + Coloring

    There is no Venn Chart available in Power Point, You must look into other chart libraries like -> https://www.highcharts.com/demo/line-ajax

    Also for larger presentations; like 200 - 400 slides, Specific Coloring for labels (e.g. Brands) is a big hassel, there order may change in other slides. We cannot simply copy paste charts. Color Pallets should be associated with custom labels (user Defined). So we don't have to color each chart labels every time.

    Chart label sorting also include by its values (based on specific columns; like if we have Jan - Dec data; and we would like to sort it using…

  20. What happened to the ungroup function?

    Last month the ungroup function worked. Now it doesnt. I used to be able to import charts I made in other programs, such as SYSTAT, then ungroup it (twice) in Word or Powerpoint to change the color or text of points or labels and now that function doesn't work and instead shuts down the program. I desperately need this function to finish my thesis!!
