  1. Don't allow all my work to dissappear

    I worked on a PowerPoint for a long time, then I saved and it said "read only", so I clicked Save As, chose a name, and it saved a blank file.

    This SUCKS. Your product SUCKS. This should NOT be possible. I lost a lot of shit I won't remember now.

  3. Reuse slides to show slide names

    New version of Reuse slides only displays the slides available as "slide 1", "slide 2, etc. instead of using the real name assigned via Outline view. This was available on a previous version. Now, I can't distinguish which slide I want to add as I cannot see the contents. The preview is small and cannot be zoomed in.

  4. Display full file name in the top of the screen

    On the edit mode the files names are cut and not displayed in full. This sometimes leads to confusion on the file being edited (mostly on long file names with versions at the end). There's enough space in that section of the screen to display longer file names (in a previous version this was also shown when hovering the mouse pointer on the file but it is gone now.

  5. Set timing to advance after the animations end

    There's an option to advance slide on mouse click, or on after a specific amount of time after the slide starts. It would be nice if there was another option to advance after a specific amount of time after all the animations are over.

  6. The text-way animation

    there should be a text way animation to apply handwriting effect with the hand picture. there should be an option to set a point of the object i.e. shape or a picture, to move on the way of that animation. in this animation the text should be written like the handwriting

  7. 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!

  8. Bigger canvas value than 56 inches

    56 inches is the maximum that a PowerPoint is going to go up to, however a bigger resolution is what we live to see. Greater value, greater visibility and a greater effect of all the images and designs will surely come together in a dynamic way if this number gets stretched, and literally so! Moreover, PowerPoint presentations are used for large-scale events, and therefore having a feature that extends in size would be beneficial.

  9. Back and forth video play

    We have already stressed on videos being an essential part of PowerPoint presentations, and going in sync with that is this one feature which is of the back and forth video play that is yet to be seen and made use of in PowerPoint. If one needs to make a reverse loop quirky content for social media content, then this would be a very useful feature.

  10. Support drag and drop EPS files

    While PowerPoint has started supporting .SVG files lately, it is important that a globally known vector format like EPS should also be made available. This would be great, as it would help avoid the unnecessary step of having to convert files before using them.

  11. Save each slide as separate video

    If you are using PowerPoint to create Instagram content, or anything related to social media, instead of hiding slides manually in order to export videos, it would be great to have a mechanism through which we could save every slide as a separate video, as that would make the process easy and less cumbersome.

  12. Pre-integrated Animated Icons

    Bringing the PPT to life with pre-integrated animated icons is next level innovation that we hope becomes a possibility in the near future. Icon sets are great, but animation is where the world is right now, and we hope that PowerPoint picks up on this soon!

  13. Replace color in the entire deck

    Yes, everything on the PowerPoint application is easy, and a lot of things can be executed with just a few clicks, but replacing the entire color in the deck in one go is still not a possibility in PowerPoint. If one has to attempt to change the color, that person has to do it manually, which is definitely more time consuming, and becomes a hassle.

  16. 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.

  17. Create a presentation tree

    Presentations work on a linear form, one slide after the other. Create a presentation tree, with presentation lines. Linear lines moves with left/rigth arrows or pointer and branched slides with up/down arrows or pointers.

    This way, during a presentation, the first slide on the tree can have more condensed information and, depending on the audience or remaining presentation time, go deeper on specific subjects, without the need to create several presentations.

  18. Search for the commands you want to add to the QAT

    When adding commands to the QAT from the "All Commands" option, we have to scroll through hundreds of features to find the ones we want to add to the QAT. Could we add a search window in that dialog box, in addition to the list of all PowerPoint's features? It would be a great time saver!

  19. Add support for more 3D file formats

    Additional file formats such as .jt or .stp would be great for adding models to presentations.

  20. Zonal OCR for localization of screenshots

    I create most of my documentation images in PowerPoint because all text has to be editable. Therefore it would be great to drag a square around the text I need to OCR in a screenshot and just create a text box out of it in PowerPoint. This would make the screenshots easy to translate. Right now, I extract text, but I can't make the text in an image editable without OCRing (and usually destroying) the entire image. I've also found no third-party tools that would offer a workaround.
