  2. Allow a slideshow music view and be able to see music length.

    1. Show music on the slideshow not just one slide, so that it is easier for timing of slides.
    2. When you add music to the first slide and then do a preview if you don't start at the first slide the music does not continue where you left off.
    3. Music should continue on other slides as you correct and edit the slides.

  6. Improve the Information message when trying to edit data in a chart data grid, when another is open

    Working in Powerpoint 365 on Windows 7. And Window 10.

    When trying to ‘Edit Data’ in one Powerpoint native excel chart while another chart’s data grid is still open, an information message implies the chart you are trying to edit is ‘linked’ to a data file. This is misleading the user about their data source. You simply need to find the other chart’s data grid, close it, and continue to Edit the chart native data.

    The correct Information message does come up about another data grid being open if you are trying to INSERT a chart while another is open.…

  7. not happy

    There is nothing more frustrating than when I have a PowerPoint presentation on one computer and I can do my modifications on it and then transfer it onto my laptop and can do zero to it. And get told that the features of power point have been disabled because it hasn’t been activated. That is bull shit as I have a legal disk installed on the laptop. What am I supposed to do.

  10. Pen strokes lag on external display in Presentation View when writing on slides in the Presenters View

    This is more of a bug than a feature request, but I was directed here by Microsoft support – they said this bug is “by design”, but I don’t think it really is…

    For the initial discussion, see here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/pen-lags-on-external-display-presenting-powerpoint/720337ef-30d4-4fcd-87b1-254f708e1246

    To summarize it again: When I show PowerPoint slides with my computer connected to an external display, I can write on the Presenter View's slide – the strokes are smooth and the pixels appear “on-the-fly” on the slide where I write them. However, in the Presentation View, the pen writing lags behind: it only shows up in the Presentation View…

  14. You need to remove your cross flags when you bring up Civil War. My boss caught hell for sending my powerpoint presentation.

    Take the Confederate flag off of your Power Point or any Windows Office program. The UTC-4-VETS Middletown Chapter President caught hell for missing it on a presentation. You owe him a sincere apology. Mike.Axler2@pw.utc.com.

  15. Upload Themes For You And Others To Use||

    This will allow you to select a picture you like, and save it so you can always use it as a Theme design, instead of having to look for the picture through Bing / your files every time. This will also allow more creative themes, and should include an option where people can make their own theme and upload it so others can use it if they prefer or like it!

  16. Add View-Only / Restrict Changes to .ppsx show files.

    Add View-Only / Restrict Changes to .ppsx show files. Please add this feature to future PowerPoint updates, so that anyone can open, view, and/or share a slide show file without a password, but no one can edit or change its contents later. Currently, all pptx and ppsx files “read-only” options are easily bypassed by just clicking on ‘Edit Anyway’. The View-Only feature would produce true Read-Only, like you have in Word files, but without the “Edit Anyway” option. Or like you have in PDF files, that anyone can open without a password but no one can easily change, or like…

  18. stop file sound

    Hi dears
    When I use an audio in PowerPoint background and the main file has an audio itself, the file sound interferes my played audio. Now I want to stop file sound or make it lower.
    Please let me know if there is an option in PowerPoint to configure and solve this problem.

  19. Allow the Picture Tools tab for picture placeholders on the slide master

    Right now when you insert a picture placeholder in the slide master, you only get the Drawing Tools Format tab. It would be great to also have the Picture Tools tab open so that we can apply actual picture formatting to the picture placeholder. Thank you!

  20. Should Have New Trigger Functions

    In the Transition Section > Trigger, they have gone for so long:
    On Click Of (When your mouse click an object)
    On Bookmark

    I hope that this would be added:
    On Mouseover of (When your mouse hover an object)

    I have seen this on Insert Section > Action but it would be cooler if I see it on Transition Section > Trigger... It would be useful for future presentations...
