  1. NDI output support for PowerPoint

    I'd like to recommend a feature to be added to the PowerPoint application. NDI is a high quality, low latency professional video IP format that I think would be a good addition to this application. I would allow you to share the output of PowerPoint on other peoples computer using a free NDI Monitor application or send the output into professional video production solutions.

    The Skype team at Microsoft has added NewTek NDI support into their product. PowerPoint would be the next product that I think should be enhanced with this royalty free technology. You can learn more about NDI…

      • Performance issue in displaying Shapes list in PowerPoint (Version 1811)

        In Windows 7, PowerPoint (Version 1811), icons are renewed, takes much longer to display shape lists than older version such as Version 1807.

        My testing is following.

        Windows 7 + New icon in Office 365 ProPlus (Version 1811) : 2.0 sec
        Windows 7 + Old icon in Office 365 ProPlus (Version 1807) : 0.5 sec

        Windows 10 + New icon in Office 365 ProPlus (Version 1811) : 1.0 sec
        Windows 10 + Old icon in Office 365 ProPlus (Version 1807) : 0.8 sec

        • Allow Custom Power Point Shape Library

          When creating advanced infographics I would like to be able to save the objects in my own library for reuse in other presentations. Similar to quick parts in Word. Allow for the import and export of as well so complex shape objects can be shared.

            • connector node in center of shape

              While connectors can be very handy for simple charts they can be extremely frustrating when drawing complex diagrams. In this case the limitations of the node positions on a shape and the inability to create a line that does not behave like a connector causes me an inordinate amount of effort to get the lines and shapes to behave how I want. One possible solution to some of this would be to have a node in the centre of shapes so that connectors can auto connect to the centre. A preferable solution would be the ability to switch off auto…

                        • Standard Normal Distribution (Gaussian Distribution)

                          Standard Normal Distribution is used in Statistics & Probability, it needs z-score, mean, and standard deviation... also the area under a normal curve and whatnots... yes, it needs a lot of Math but we take care of putting the values. It may need a frequency and/or probability distribution table. ... what more... sample means and whatnots.

                          • Prevent Transparent Background in Pasted Image from Printing as Black

                            When I copy sparklines from Excel and Paste Special into an image placeholder as a Picture, the sparklines appear pixelated. When I print that slide, the sparklines have a rectangular black background (instead of transparent) that extends to the limits of the cells in Excel.

                                      • Morph for Charts

                                        It would be great if charts could take advantage of the morph transition as well. Currently, charts just fade when moving from slide to slide, even if the only difference between two slides is the data in the charts. It would help illustrate effectively the difference in value between two different datasets
