  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…

  4. 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.

  6. 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

    Reference:
    Your ribbon icons have a new look

  8. Improve the Information message when trying to edit data in a chart data grid, when another is open

    Working in Powerpoint 365 on Windows 7. And Window 10.

    When trying to ‘Edit Data’ in one Powerpoint native excel chart while another chart’s data grid is still open, an information message implies the chart you are trying to edit is ‘linked’ to a data file. This is misleading the user about their data source. You simply need to find the other chart’s data grid, close it, and continue to Edit the chart native data.

    The correct Information message does come up about another data grid being open if you are trying to INSERT a chart while another is open.…

  9. not happy

    There is nothing more frustrating than when I have a PowerPoint presentation on one computer and I can do my modifications on it and then transfer it onto my laptop and can do zero to it. And get told that the features of power point have been disabled because it hasn’t been activated. That is bull shit as I have a legal disk installed on the laptop. What am I supposed to do.

  11. Defaulting Chart Styles in PowerPoint

    Similar to defaulting a text box or shape fill color, why not allow charts to be defaulted as well? Seems silly to have to save out a template that another person would have to install to use. Right?

  12. Add Posture Changeable 3D Models of Persons

    If PowerPoint can add 3D models of persons (male, female, child, adult, etc.) and make the posture and facial expression of the models changeable and controllable, for example, a user can change the posture of a hand or change smiling to crying, then PowerPoint will become a very powerful tool for users to draw people's without need of drawing skills. The posture-change function can be designed in such way that no matter how crazy a user tries to change a posture, the software always results in a reasonable posture. For example, if a user pull the hand above the head…

  15. Left align categories in a horizontal bar chart simply

    Can you make it possible to easily align the text categories in a bar chart so they are aligned to the edge of the chart itself and not just the edge of the category text box?

    Currently, text alignment within bar chart categories doesn't make sense.

    First, the alignment icons don't work in a logical way. Pressing the left align icon drops the text to the bottom of the series (if you have more than one). Although I know it isn't currently possible to left align category text in this way - it doesn't make sense that it doesn't work…

  17. plz solve the problem !

    Since presenter view only shows the next slide, we use the old non presenter view with the slide deck on the left. This allows you to see several upcoming slides. The problem is sometimes the slide deck stops scrolling during the presentation. In older versions this worked great.

  20. 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…
