  2. Icon picker with search

    As with Online Pictures( from Web), put a search box in the icon picker.
    There are many many icons and it is slow displaying icons and a search would improve what you really want.

  4. paragraph and font dialogs should be non-modal

    Just that. Why is there no dynamic preview for the settings in the Paragraph and Font dialogs?

    Why do I have to close the dialog to see how my settings look and then open it again to make changes? It's fiddly and a hassle, and there's no reason it should be that way when everything else in PowerPoint is dynamic.

  5. Move excel graphs with arrow buttons

    Powerpoint should let you move graphs with the arrow keys! Right now you have to use a mouse and it makes it really hard to shift graphs

  6. Better data visualization animation for charts

    On click, have data sets move on screen over a period of time to see the change. Like this: https://developers.google.com/chart/interactive/docs/gallery/motionchart?hl=en

  7. Allow Data Connections

    PowerPoint should allow data connections to graphs, tables and charts like in Excel.

  8. Ensure that PowerPoint charts are automatically filled with "true" theme colours

    The first 8 auto fill colours in a PowerPoint/Excel chart may be slightly darker than the actual 8 theme colours in the template.

    Apparently this is because MS automatically darkens/dulls these swatches to differentiate them from swatches in case further data series are displayed.

    The problem is expressed more thoroughly here:

  9. Transitions for 3D Models and Camera

    A recent update brought the ability to embed 3D models within Microsoft Office products (e.g., STL, OBJ, PLY). Currently, you can set up the virtual camera's orientation and the rotation of the model when designing the slide, however, when in presentation mode this gets rendered as a single image.

    It would be nice to let this 3D model be dynamic along with the presentation. Transitions such as model rotation, camera zooming, etc. could allow for dynamic presentations utilizing 3D model data.

  10. Allow copy/paste of slides without linking the data - like it has always done!

    With the new powerpoint 2016 you can no longer just copy a slide as the chart in the new slide will be linked to the data source of the original slide. it's not visible until you open the chart in the original slide and it changes to match the data you input for the new slide - so you have to slides with hte exact same data.

    I simply can't fathom why this is no longer possible to do
