Continuous scrolling between slides/ Don't jump to next slide when zoomed in
I'd like to be able to scroll down one slide and have part of the next one come up under it, instead of jumping entirely to the next slide. Often when I've zoomed a slide for detail work, I get too close to the bottom margin and suddenly I'm on another slide.
When in presentation model, this makes the audience really dizzy trying to jump back and forth the unintended slide switch, aside from annoyed and frustrated user
I absolutely agree. This is the MOST frustrating feature when creating and editing a PP document. It's sooooo irritating when you try to edit a slide near the top or bottom and the document automatically jumps to the next slide. So much of my time is wasted! Please change this!!
THIS IS SO ANNOYING. PLS FIX THIS!!!! IT'S BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE ORIGINAL POST MICROSOFT
Please fix this issue. It is constantly jumping to a new slide while I am working. I need to be able to scroll on a slide and not have it jump. Isn't this the entire point of having the slide view on the left side. It is absurd and driving me insane.

I also have the same request but this thread has been here for four years already and the same problem exists with the newer versions. Is there any hope of getting this added to PowerPoint.
Please make this possible!!! I am a teacher who makes ALL my materials with PPT before converting them to PDFs, this would greatly improve the quality of my life!

PLEASE fix this, it is driving me crazy
As an easy workaround for now, you can open the slide master view, and on the master slide, add a shape really far above and below the slide, then close master view. Scrolling will no longer change between slides unless you scroll for a long time! (The master slide will apply the fix to all slides) If the shape bothers you, make it invisible. :)
Hi Powerpoint team,
In Words and Excel, whenever I drag the scroll slider, the screen moves along instantly. But in Powerpoint, the screen stays there when I drag the slider, only move when I release the mouse button. I first thought this is a bug and posted this in Microsoft Community forum in this post: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/screen-doesnt-follow-while-dragging-scrolling-bar/e46c64f4-322d-4bea-aae5-f0eff7892b32?tm=1586264747462
Then a MS agent told me to come here and propose the idea. Please consider this. Thanks in advance!

A trick to avoid this is put any element far below on the page (outside the page). It will not jump until you "arrive" on it and, will not appear on your print/presentation/export
I think Microsoft just gave up on users, too many buy their products for them to fix problems. Instead we see a stream of new versions with the same problems.
Only thing I can recommend is make the paper huge and work in the middle, then copy it when you are done.
It is almost always startling and unwanted when you are scrolling and suddenly find yourself in a new slide. LibreOffice doesn't do this.

STILL no FIX ??????? Does Microsoft have anyone working on powerpoint or did they accept defeat against Keynote?!?!
I do export to pdf and use pdf viewer, otherwise I would have to inflict an ingury on some GUI "designer" from Microsoft :-)
Just had a minor rage fit about this. Not only did ppt paste my text boxes and figures way off screen, but scrolling down to try to retrieve them resulted in many jumps to the slide below it. about punched the screen...

Wow microsoft. Only 317 people wasted the time to go to your bull_s_hit forum to suggest the feature. maybe you can catch up to adobe reader version 4.0 and add the feature within the next decade 2020? Or are you so busy redesigning all the interfaces to be less useful each week you don't have time?

Please fix this. It's soooooo annoying. It adds so much time every time I'm trying to deal with cropping or resizing big pictures
Instead of locking the continuous scrolling might be helpful as a means that does not require interaction.
The very sImple solution I use:
Copy the presentation I'm working on to a temporarily 'work' copy (so the master file is preserved and you don't get in all kind of strife when you move the slide back to your original presentation)
Delete the slides you're not working on, just keep a single slide in the work copy
Copy the slide back to the original file after you finished editing
Move the next slide to your work copy and delete the finished slide
Simple, stupid, but effective and can keep you sane

Is there seriously still no fix?
