It's really time consuming to set up text styles and have everything look consistent.
Also I often create templates for clients and they cannot manage to apply the same style to the newly added texts as powerpoint makes it really difficult for them...
This then usually ends up in a compromise of still having it look acceptable and being set up so simple that they still can use the template...
Would be great to have paragraph styles similar to Indesign or MS Word.

It's obvious that PowerPoint developers do not actually create presentations otherwise this feature would have been added a long time ago. There's an application called Microsoft Word, you should look at it some time to see how paragraph/characters could actually be used. I've been using software applications for more than 30 years and it's mind-boggling these companies don't hire actual users as part of their development teams.
