  1. Add lighting effects for 3D models

    When doing a project on something like the Solar System, and when using 3D models, it'd be nice to be able to put the source of light where the Sun is. This would super cool!

    • Voice to Text add on

      There should be an add on that allows you to speak the words that you want inputted in the slide and the program should change the voice words into actual text in the slide. It is very helpful when you have a lot to say and don't want to type it out. I know Google docs uses it, but it is a pain to switch between google docs and word.

            • Bug when opening a downloaded PPT

              When I open a PPT/Excel/Word immediately after it is downloaded, I always get a same error telling me mine file cannot be opened when actually nothing wrong is with the download or the file itself. This is happening all the times, and happens in PPT, Excel, and Word. But if I open&close it for at least three times, it can be opened and displayed correctly. I think this is a bug because I did not encounter this issue before.

              • Opening After Moving File

                This is for all of Office.

                When I move a file, obviously I can't use the "Recently Used File" list to open it.

                How about fixing that!

                I understand why it can't be automatic, but it could start an automatic search for all files with similar names... And then when you open the file, replace the dead link with the good one in Recently Used (instead of maintaining both links).

                • Select and Flatten

                  Select and Flatten
                  Often I need to select a slide and have all of the objects flattened so I can resize the selected portions in proportion to each other. To do this, I take a screenshot of the slide and then paste it into Paint and then copy and paste what I want to copy. Using Paint will flatten the objects which will make resizing easier since it will do things in proportion.

                  • Insert video from other places than Youtube, such as Facebook.

                    Youtube is not the only source for video content today and other platforms should be able to insert. I am very surpised it is not possible.

                    • Need Latex support for presentation

                      It will be nice if we could directly type in Latex command for an equation into the domain instead of searching for an equivalent representation in Powerpoint.

                              It would be very helpful to be able to see more than one slide ahead in Presenter View, similar to the Presenter View in Powerpoint 10. Thank you.

                                • Please put a dash and or hyphen into the default bullet selection box.

                                  Many of the default bullet choices are in my opinion outdated and I never use them. I do however always use dashes for sub-bullets and always have to customize, Would love to see hyphens and or dash's in the default menu. Thanks for the consideration.

                                    • Game Toolbar for educational presentation recording

                                      Utilizing the Game Toolbar causes PP to not allow you to save the file after using it. However, using the Game Toolbar allows you to record a video of your presentation while recording your voice over the presentation. This is a common form of assignment turn-in for schools like Savanah College of Art and Design, as well as The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, both for their online division students.

                                      Presently both schools recommend students use a product like Jing, which gives you the option to select the screen to be recorded, but requires the file to be uploaded into their…

                                        You should be able to add a google play game because what if your company recently published a new app? And what if you are a blogger and you want to shout out an app?

                                        • Black theme and futuristic holographic UI

                                          Please bring the black theme back. And try bringing out a futuristic 3D holographic UI for the presentations, along with an entirely new set of transitions and animations to make it look even cooler.
