Presenter View – Automatically extend the PPT arrow display to the Audience Screen, when the arrow is over the current slide of Presenter View. Speakers using Presenter View often have to look behind them to see where their mouse pointer is on the Audience Screen. This is very distracting to the audience and causes the speaker to lose track of where they are in their presentation.
There is an option to turn on the laser pointer, which extends from the Presenter View to the Audience Screen, but speakers often forget to turn this feature on or forget to turn it off when trying to play videos within their presentation. PPT for Mac currently displays the arrow on the Presenter View and Audience Screen and it would be great if PowerPoint for PC did the same to support our speakers.

Yes please, and as soon as possible!

Great request. Please put this in the product. It’s a critical usability issue. After all that is the point of PowerPoint.
This would be helpful to any presentation environment. Please put a rush on this Microsoft!
Another reason to stick with Mac.

It does seem odd that Mac has this (what would seem to be) desirable feature and PC doesn't.
Agreed. This feature is desperately missing from the Windows version.
Came here looking for why you can do this on Mac and not on PC. Why the fragmentation?
The current Mac functionality is great. I'm surprised this never made it to the PC version.
Yes, this would be so much better on PC then the current setup.
