  1. Presenter View – Automatically extend the arrow display to the Audience Screen, when the arrow is over the current slide of Presenter View.

    Presenter View – Automatically extend the PPT arrow display to the Audience Screen, when the arrow is over the current slide of Presenter View. Speakers using Presenter View often have to look behind them to see where their mouse pointer is on the Audience Screen. This is very distracting to the audience and causes the speaker to lose track of where they are in their presentation.

    There is an option to turn on the laser pointer, which extends from the Presenter View to the Audience Screen, but speakers often forget to turn this feature on or forget to turn it…

  2. loop

    PowerPoint needs a way to easily loop animations on a slide. Currently, there are hacks that require silent audio files and/or copying and pasting the animations for a finite set of replays and/or creating custom shows.

    There should just be a simple checkbox that says : Loop animations.

  3. Speed Changer in imported Video and Music

    Hi, since I have been doing a lot of video presentations and video editing using power point, I would like to suggest to add a feature in which I can change the speed of the video and music I imported. Power point has been my video editor since then and I am really comfortable using it that's why I am suggesting this instead of using other video editors. I hope I made a point, thanks a lot!

  5. Embed codes to work for Loom recorded videos

    A lot of teachers are recording lessons on Loom at the moment due to COVID and remote learning. It would be a lot easier if we were able to embed these videos into the powerpoints that we are delivering to the students.

  6. Rich text formatting of Notes Pane should be visible in Normal View and Presenter View as well.

    It would be nice to have richtext formatting also visible in the Notes pane in the Normal view. There actually are context-sensitive options to highlight text, change font size, use colors, but it is only visible in the Notes Page view. Currently, it is only bold and italic that is displayed in the Normal View.

  7. zoom out when leaving a slide zoom

    If I have slide 2 in slide 1

    Problem:
    The slideshow will go
    Slide 1, zoom into Slide 2, show slide 3

    Solution:
    It would be much less jarring if
    Slide 1, zoom into Slide 2, zoom out of Slide 2, Show slide 3

  8. presenter view 2016 has a single preview of the next slide. I would like to be able to see all the slides down the bottom like 2010

    Bring back presenter view as in Powerpoint 2010. I use 2010 at Church, seeing more than the next slide allows me to see what the minister is going to say next and preview several upcoming slides so when he jumps ahead, I am not lost. 2010 powerpoint presenter allows me to use the bottom slider to go through all slides when I need it to go back or forward as needed in the presentation without jumping to the all slides screen

  9. powerpoint

    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.

  11. 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!

  18. space bar to pan around document after zooming in

    Ctrol + scroll wheel allows zooming in, after that would be nice to be able to press space bar to hand grab the document and drag the document around (like in adobe illustrator).

    and when zooming in "zoom to cursor option", whereever the mouse pointer is, the zoom centers the canvas to that point.

  19. 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.
