Text wrapping

Please include text wrap around for pictures, tables and other objects. Why would you include wrapping in other office products but not Power Point?

        I can't believe Powerpoint 2016 doesn't have text wrapping around objects! This should be covered in "Presentations 101"!

        I like the way text wraps in Publisher, why not Powerpoint. Let the default stay how it is, but let me turn it on for one picture at a time. Right click, Text wrap.

        I'm sure I agree with thousands of other people ... Please include text wrap around for pictures, tables and other objects. Why would you include wrapping in other office products but not Power Point?

        I am using powerpoint for scientific poster creation. No text wrapping is limiting my ability to incorporate graphics with text for an interesting visual presentation quickly.

        More than text wrapping, give us the ability--with "points" around a text box--to create multiple shapes with the text by dragging points.

        Text wrapping is a feature that would work as a good update in PowerPoint 2016. I bet this would be better for people who present their ideas using PPTs and want their slides to look better with pictures. Please add it.

        I am using PowerPoint as a make shift teleprompter and want to position my camera in the middle of my monitor without blocking the script.

        PowerPoint needs text wrapping around objects, or the ability to make custom shape text boxes.

        This would be a very useful feature. It would allow more graphically designed slides. Right now, you have to use clumsy work-arounds and if you have any animations, it poses additional challenges.

        I use word to achieve it, but it is annoying. this should be a standard feature.
