in Powerpoint 2010 we could use Clipart and customize it to include company graphics, which were indexed and thus searchable via keywrds.
That allowed our users to create a presentation with our company's concepts and graphics.
Starting in PowerPoint 2013 this option was removed, and replaced by 2 options:
1. The Bing online search for images and clip-arts (which searches for generally available graphics on the Internet)
2. Connect to the user's OneDrive and add files from there. (which are personal user files)
Both of these options do not deliver what we need, which is a centrally managed (add / remove / edit keywords etc.) graphics repository, which should also be available offline (for the laptop users).
I would like to see a feature under the "online pictures" (configurable through GPO) that adds the corporate's custom graphics as an image source.
This feature is mostly missed in Powerpoint, but it is also missed in Word (maybe even Excel).

Please place Clip Art back on my computer. I don't know about the other sources to find pictures as conveniently.

PLEASE BRING BACK CLIP ART
Shocked to just find the clip art which I use extensively for printed labels etc has gone - this happened once before and thankfully was brought back - there are some super pictures on there - the ones online do not compete so PLEASE BRING BACK CLIP ART

Please bring back clip art, I knew it was ok to use that material.
Please bring back clipart. It was easy to use and helpful.
Please give us back clip art - online searches you end up going round the houses trying to find quick images to drop into things and run into copyright etc - fine for big companies but we're a small nursery trying to illustrate things for our younger people who cant read!
please bring back clipart! user friendly, fun & easy for low tech users.
Very unhappy and absolutely gutted clipart has gone!!!
BRING. BACK. CLIPART. function to MS Office.
It is quite simply, a pain in the neck to have to open a whole new window/browser & wade thru all the other misc flotsam that will come up in a search just to find a smiley face or any other picture for that matter.
bring clip art back now!!!!
Please bring Clip Art back..... it was fun, easy and never blocked like most websites on my works network.
Microsofts worst ever decission :-(

While I do appreciate being able to get clip art from the other search engines, the immediacy provided by MS clip art cannot be denied , despite declining use, the option should still be available to those of us old fogies who still wish to use them.
Furthermore, having to do the search and then contend with copyright issues is frustrating to say the least. Bring back Clip Art, please.

Please bring Clip Art back! Why deprive users of such an easy- to - use, fun, helpful feature???????
I agree with all the comments regarding the need to have clip art back. Why make things more difficult. It seems with every iteration of Microsoft most things become more difficult to find and use! First, it started with XP not being updated or validated, then with the Surface Pro and those stupid tiles and difficult navigation processes and, now, this!
online search for clip art or any type of image has become impossible if you are wanting to be sure that you do not violate copyright laws. Doing away with a way to get artwork makes my life much more difficult!

Ich würde eine Online-Bibliothek mit Cliparts sehr begrüßen
