      • Arrow with more than one arrowhead

        It would be great to get the ability to draw an arrow that starts as one but ends in multiple arrowheads. E.g. if you have one starting point and want to visualize that there is more than one possible outcome.

        • Bring Immersive Reader to PowerPoint Desktop and Online

          In schools, PowerPoints are often referred back to by students, rather than solely being used to present. Students with learning needs would benefit from being able to use Learning Tools/ Immersive Reader in PowerPoint, just as they can in OneNote/ Word.

            • Copy paste formatting of animations

              Example: If I add "random bars" with specific timings and after animation effects.... and later on add another element to the slide where I want those actions to occur... today I have to re-create it. If I could copy paste animation formatting, it would solve it.

                • PowerPoint version for Designers

                  I would LOVE to see a leveled-up version of PowerPoint for presentation designers that gave us control over all of the things we can't control in the standard version of PPT. Something where we could create a design system and the output would be a standard PPT template. Can we have that please?

                  • Callouts with two or more pointers

                    If one callout box needs to refer two different areas, it is necessary to add a new entire callout and hide it underneath the initial box.

                    This could be solved by adding callouts with with more than one pointer.

                    • Define outline colour only for arrow end/begin

                      Sometimes it is useful to have an outline only for arrow begin / end, specifically in callouts, when we want to highlight that element. the only possibility is to add a round shape below the arrow, which is not practical.

                      • Rotate text 180 degrees inside shapes

                        There are shapes, such as certain rectangles, in which it would be useful to allow the rotation of text to 180 degrees. There are some workarounds involving the 3-d rotation text effects the results are poor.

                              • Request that PPT 'last slide viewed' hyperlinks get converted properly when making PDFs.

                                The 'last slide viewed (LSV)' hyperlink functionality in powerpoint is a fantastic capability. However, when you save the powerpoint containing LSV links as a PDF, the LSV links drop out. I don't believe that it would be an incredibly difficult fix/update to make, but would tremendously improve the functionality of the powerpoint product.

                                  • Ortho Camera View for 3D files

                                    It would be very powerful for the inserted 3D files to have Orthographic camera option so that we can view the models as true isometric. This would give us the very powerful capability to animate with multiple 3D objects at once.

                                    • Negative text color

                                      Text boxes sometimes have contrasted backround (image, pattern, ...). In that case the choice of the text color tricky if we want it to be readable at any point of the text box. A solution could be to propose a new option for the text color: the negative of the background. Therefore each pixel of the text would have the negative color of the underlying background pixel.

                                      • Selection pane is hard to find at present.

                                        Could the button to open the Selection pane be put on the View tab of the ribbon? I can never remember the name of this pane, so I hunt about for it expecting to find it on the View tab of the ribbon, but it is not there. Then I resort to using the "Tell me what you want to do" button just above the ribbon and I type in various words that might work, such as "View Objects" or "Display items" and so forth. It generally takes me a long time to find it. The View tab seems to…
