  1. graph paper background.

    If I had it, I could create more accurate pages for design layout reflecting realworld measurements. As an example. I am working on a project to design a property for a non-profit, where building dimensions set in lot dimensions need to be accurately reflected. It's hard to create facilities when I am guessing at the footprint of buildings on exactly sized land. With graph paper, real paper, and/or a ruler and protractor, I can make drawings reflect space...why can't this program have a graph paper background setting so I can do the same? I did see a ruler option, but…

  3. Audio and Webcam recording uncompressed

    Please make a small. Interface that allows me to take control of the audio and video quality if I use Powerpoint for Recording both. The Webcam input iss compressed to 480p and the audio quality is low too. Since covid 19 content production got very important, the lack of sound quality control is a real barrier. Powerpoint compresses these inputs for file-size reasons, please give advanced users the chance to produce hq content tho.

  10. guestimate pie chart based on source image

    Please add a feature to guestimate pie charts based on a source image. Doing it manually is a very painstaking process to figure out the angle values!

  11. Remove those auto align dots on the sides, top & bottom of shapes! When I’m creating an org chart and have to connect the boxes with lines

    Remove the magnetic dots on the sides, top and bottom of shapes! I create hundreds of org charts every year and when I’m adding the lines to connect the boxes those awful magnetic dots grab my lines. I will place the lines where they need to go. By the way, MS Tech Support could not fix this.

  14. Change slides using mobile app

    I am a teacher and the idea of walking to the laptop every time to change the slide is tiring. The use of a presenter is somewhat limited as I cannot tell what the next slide is. It would be great if we can pair the phone to the system and use the phone to change the slide and view the upcoming slides. This feature was once available and was one of the best features for teachers.

  15. Please add "Translate Slides" in Slide Show ribbon

    I am in China, my everyday job requirements required "Translate Slide" in Slide Show ribbon at Microsoft Power Point.

    I subscribe Office365, but also have no "Translate Slide" button. Please send me the add-in to my email.

    Highly required for my everyday work prospect.

  18. It would be a good idea to have pop up suggestions re features to use, including this feedback feature!

    It would be a good idea to have pop up suggestions re features to use, including this feedback feature! E.g. until now I did not realise that the arc draw feature existed, and used to draw ellipses and put white rectangles over the bits I did not want instead.

    Maybe allow the user's to use the design feature the whole way through instead of accidently clicking off it and then not being able to access half way through.
