  1. Inserir o campo "Correspondência" que ha no Word para execução de Mala Direta no PowerPoint

    A aba "Correspondência" no Word facilita a inserção de dados variáveis no Word, porém está funcionalidade não está presente no PowerPoint e é uma ótima ferramenta para quem trabalha com Marketing Digital e Conteúdo na Internet pelo Instagram.

  4. Improve the Linked Files Interface

    The edit Links to Files dialogue box needs a refresh.
    1) you cannot even scroll left right and successfully get the often very long file path displayed; identifying the right file when trying to update charts in ppt is not easily possible. Recommendation: fix the display of the content in this window that the information gets actually shown. Also useful would be the possibility to resize this window to be able to avoid scrolling at all.
    2) add a reference to the object in this "Links" window, so you know what object on what slide is linked. A little preview…

  5. Incorporate Think-Cell functionality as a Microsoft standard for graphing

    Think-Cell features and capabilities are far superior to the standard Microsoft Office graphing capabilities (in my opinion). It integrates well into PowerPoint and Excel, however it is licence based and many other users aren't able to access it. My suggestion is for Microsoft to acquire Think-Cell outright and make it a default capability in the MS Office suite

  6. Option to customize Powerpoint colors. I'm Color Blind and cannot see which slide is selected in the thumbnails in Dark Mode.

    I'm Color Blind and I cannot easily see which slide is selected in the thumbnails when using the Dark Mode. The Dark mode is usually better for my eyes.
    We could have an option to change that color (that I don't know - I think green), or an option to increase the thickness of that borderline around the thumbnails.

  9. Color scheme for smart art

    For the smart art, there are various color choice. But I think there is still far from enough and more can be provided.

  10. I would like to make a reccomondation here. It would be helpful for beginers if a manual is provided on how to work with powerpoint.

    A manual which is of few pages on how to access the basic features would come handy for beginners.

  12. Improving the edit option for table design in powerpoint

    Powerpoint's interface is really suitable for decorating tables, but the edit we can do to the table is very limited.

    1) The table template is quite old-fashioned, it would be great if PowerPoint can provide table design template that is more up to the current aesthetic

    2) While some would like their table looks more 3D, shading is a better tool comparing to emboss to make the 3D appear more natural. However, it is not possible to do different shading to the cell alone, the current version ppt only allows to do shading for the whole table and I find…

  13. Quickly transform my PPT to match my company template (colors, text font family, slide master)

    I would like PPT to have a format and align functionality. Pressing format and align will transform the PPT to the companies colors etc and align the pictures for a smooth transition.

  15. Incluir la opción cambiar fuente de vínculos externos de forma centralizada. Si todos los vínculos pertenecen a un mismo archivo externo.

    Incluir la opción cambiar fuente de vínculos externos de forma centralizada, si todos los vínculos pertenecen a un mismo archivo externo. Me explico, todos los meses tengo que actualizar una ppt vinculada a un excel que conserva el mismo formato pero cada mes incluye un mes más de datos y va cambiando de nombre. Actualmente tengo que "Editar vínculos a archivos" e ir cambiando la fuente uno a uno. Esto es absurdo! En excel no tenemos ese inconveniente, podemos cambiar la fuente a otro excel de forma centralizada sin ir objeto por objeto.

  19. Add custom and professional color palettes for maps

    There is a great deal of innovation and nuance in coloring maps so that they are accurate, readable, and color blind. It would be useful to import these special color palettes into PP and Excel Maps easily.

    For example, the carefully-designed "viridis" color palette is perceptually uniform and would be nice to use its many variants in PP. But it is currently not possible to import a map color palette (as far as I know).

  20. Bring back the option to move points in a chart manually

    There used to be the ability to pick up points within an embedded line chart and move them to approximately the right position - this would generate the data in the data sheet - this was so useful when recreating charts.
