Bring back copy comments feature when copying slides
It is much easier to delete the comments from a copied slide than to recreate all the comments when trying to combine two presentations into one.
Fully agree with other comments, the removal of this feature causes a tremendous amount of work for those of us who are working with slides from different slide decks and reviewing presentations. The comments are an important part of the slide content and should not just disappear when copying over. I would also love it if comments actually tag on to specific objects or text, so that it is easier to figure out what they belong to.
Please add and this feature again. It adds on a tremendous amount of work to have to go back and add in the comments all over. I am not sure why this was taken away. Maybe you can add a feature that gives someone the option to add the comments or not
Agree with Gabi, major overhaul of comments needed! Make copying comments easier, whether copying whole slide to another presentation, or just elements of one slide to another slide (in same or different preso); and make (allow?) comments to 'grab onto' elements so that they move with those elements (in the same way connector lines move with their objects!)
Please do this
I agree! Taking away this feature does not make any sense!
why can't it be an option to select whether or not comments shall be copied over from 1 presentation to another one. Currently, it doesn't even work correctly if 1 slide is copied within the same presentation (the comment gets removed from the original slide and moved over into the copy which is a bug from my point of view).
Also, the comments are not connected to the highlighted section like in MS Word which makes it a nightmare to co-edit a PPT (as moving around texts doesn't move the corresponding comment).
So please: a general rework of the commenting concept in PPT is urgently required!!!

Allow comments to be copied along with the slide into a new presentation.
Reason: I often have to combine slides from multiple product or programs into one deck for the manager to review. An important part of the information is the Comments that people have entered for the slides. Losing them creates an extraordinary amount of extra work. For a recent small deck, it was an additional 3 hours of work.
