  1. It would be nice if powerpoint doesn't destroy your work when you change location and log at another location.

    Today I logged in with my personal laptop via the TUDelft internet. I worked a day long on a very important presentation and saved it on my onedrive. Back home I log in on my personal internet and suddenly it goes back to a previous version, saved the day before and deletes or ignores all the changes of a hard days work and of course also autosaves this old version as the new version. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE. On top of that powerpoint is unable to deliver the "previous" versions, saved when working at TUDelft. This was after a recent…

    • Option to prevent autocorrection of lower case Greek letters

      I create science-based presentations that frequently use lower-case Greek letters as symbols. If they are the first thing in a text-box they are auto-corrected to capitals. I would like an option to prevent this autocorrection for Greek letters only (i.e.: maintain autocorrection of other lower case letters at the start of sentences).

      • Preserve underline text formatting in Morph transitions

        The Morph transition is great (thank you!), but there's a nit: underline text formatting disappears during the transition.

        My use case: I'm using PowerPoint to create videos that include IBM 3270 terminal screen captures. The captures are "rich text": they include entry fields that are represented using underline formatting, not just underscore characters (an important point, because the entry fields might contain text). In a single text box in PowerPoint, I concatenate multiple 24-row terminal screen captures. The text box is much taller than a single slide. I duplicate the slide with the text box. On the duplicate slide, I…

        • Current viewing slides is not oblivious to see in black office theme

          In the normal view of PowerPoint, the current viewing slide is highlighted with orange border to differentiate from other slides. However, it is not obvious to see the border in the black office theme. It makes me a bit hard to identify the current viewing slide from the left panel.

          Is it possible to make the highlighted status more obvious in black office theme? For example, how about changing the color of slide number into orange as well? Alternatively, add a orange background with maybe 30% of transparency at the back of that current viewing slide to highlight the status.

            • Issue with images for combi charts

              I have noticed an issue with the image for "secondary vertical" axis title in combi charts, in that the image used is of a horizontal axis title, not a vertical one. I have reported this online but was told to post here as well (case number 1415727543). The issue occurs in Office 2013 and 2016.

              • Print 9 tiles per page with notes

                There is the option to print 9 slides per page. Please give the option to print 9 slide tiles per page WITH NOTES appearing underneath the slide tiles. This would be so nice for preparing for presentations and for use during presentations.

                        I have this suggestion, I call it 'Negative zoom'
                        In this hypothetical feature a user could click on any shape or picture or any resizable object on the slide, then press Ctrl+H and zoom the slide (by sliding the pointer at the right corner of the slide) This way the object will remain of the same size while the background slide will resize.
                        feature:
                        When any one tries to resize any object or picture, we change…

                                    • Embedded videos must extend beyond YouTube.

                                      Tons of reputable sites now run videos that do not use YouTube. As others have said, Vimeo would be nice, but why not allow embeding from many major sites that have embed codes for their videos? A few examples would be Wall Street Journal and Fortune Magazine, both of which run great videos but have embed codes that Powerpoint cannot use.

                                      • 슬라이드 편집할 때 화면 이동

                                        안녕하세요, 아주 간단한 건의사항 드리려 합니다.

                                        슬라이드 화면을 확대해서 편집하는 경우
                                        한 페이지 내에서 이동하려면 지금은 기본적으로
                                        스크롤 바를 쓰고 있잖아요.

                                        이 부분을 마치 어도비 포토샵처럼 (물론 예 입니다만)
                                        스페이스바를 누르면 포인터가 손 모양으로 바뀌면서
                                        마우스를 드래그해서 화면이동 하는 방식과 같이
                                        한 페이지 내 화면이동이 좀 더 빠르고 편했으면 좋겠습니다.

                                        아무튼 좋은 툴 쓰게 해줘서 감사드리구요,
                                        간단하지만 한 번 고려해주시면 좋겠네요.

                                        귀사의 번창을 기원합니다.
                                        감사합니다.
