  4. Shape spacing and alignment indicators using keyboard

    When using the keyboard to move the shapes around / fine positioning. The alignment and spacing indicators do not show up. If you click on a shape with the mouse you can see them, but that means you have to take you hands off the keyboard to get that information. The alignment and spacing indicators should work when suing the keyboard.

  12. Allow matrix alignment options in PowerPoint Equation Editor

    The Equation Editor in Word allows alignment options to be specified for matrices. The PowerPoint version of the Equation Editor does not. This make Powerpoint versions standard mathematical constructions (e.g. definition of functions by cases) ugly. Please, can the Equation editor in PowerPoint be the same as the one in Word?

  13. New Transition "Blur"

    Please add a transition where it detects a full screen picture on a slide and if the "blur" (new transition) is clicked the photo will start clear then begin to blur. You could do this with any Artistic effect but the blur would be the best with the option's on where to start the blur and how long it will take for the full blur to take place.

  14. Point scoring system

    Be able to easily add in a point scoring system. For example, if you have a slide with a question on it with three possible answers, you can select which one is the correct answer. If the correct answer is clicked, a score variable will plus 1 (or however many points you choose that question to be worth).

  16. Please add a "go to slide #" feature in PowerPoint edit mode.

    I make very large presentations. I would like to be able to easily navigate to the slide number of my choice to edit it. A similar feature exists in Word in the "Find and Replace" menu; for consistency, we might want to put it there in PowerPoint too. A similar concern is discussed on this thread with which I am not involved: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficepowerpoint-msowinother/how-to-jump-to-slide-number-in-edit-mode-without/7275a194-988c-43f1-a11f-070e7a9590da

  17. Presentation View Notes Scroll with Touch

    When in Presentation View on two monitors, the speaker notes display on the main monitor

    If the notes are larger than the display box then scrolling is available....however scrolling will only work with the mouse scroll button

    If I have a surface or a touchscreen can you allow the notes to be scrolled through with your touch?

  19. Tenant Wise Tempaltes for O365 Enterprise

    Ability to add templates to an O365 tenant, for online availability. Our organization would like for an O365 template, such as a PowerPoint teamplate, to be available to all users across the tenant, whether they're on our network or not, using the Windows, Mobile, or Mac client. Though we may need to supply a template for each client type, it would still be nice to have this template available for all users of our particular tenant, as opposed to having to copy it to each user device via GPO when they're on-network.
