  2. Animations: A "Before next" time setting

    If you could trigger an animation before the next animation, you could use them in the end of the slide, as part of the transition.

    Currently you are only able to trigger an animation in the start of the slide, as the part of the transition, using the "With previous" time setting.

  3. smart guide adjustment

    When aligning objects in darker backgrounds, the smart guides go nearly invisible, making it very difficult for arrangement.
    Please enable an adjustment for these guides
    (applicable to all kinds of guidelines) in terms of styles, thickness, colors, etc.

  5. Add Fishbone (Ishikawa/Cause and Effect) Diagrams to SmartArt

    Top level could the be ultimate effect (the head of the fish), second level would be the main ribs of the fish, third level would be sub-causes, forth level would be sub-sub-causes (if possible - three levels would probably be sufficient). I'm looking for automatic fishbone diagram generation and can't find anything on the internet that does it automatically - just templates of people manually drawing them. This seems like such a simple slam-dunk for SmartArt!

  6. Wrap X axis text labels in a chart at an angle

    Instead of shortenning labels and make it one-line with three dots make an option to wrap text within two-three lines labels. You can do that vertical, horizontal, why not at an angle?

  9. Dynamic charts with animations

    When Im presenting a chart on a slide, such as a column chart created on Excel and paste on Power Point, it would be incredible that you can add animations to each column in order no present the data in a more dynamic way.

  10. Allow manual resizing of data label box

    Sometimes with bigger text, the data label box is too small to fit the text attractively/properly. It would be very helpful to be able to manually resize the box

  16. Loop a single slide

    I'd like to enable looping for a single slide inside the presentation. It could work by choosing how many times that slide should repeat, or skip it by pressing any key twice...
