  1. Select default slide size in 'Options.'

    Setting 4:3 (standard!) as the default slide size should really not require a ten-step process to create a custom setting.

  4. Embed 3D link like Sketchfab or Clara.io

    It is possible to include an embed link with Sway application. So I can see the sketchfab (3D real-time) viewer in my presentation. Why can we not include such a link in Powerpoint?

  6. Provide a tool so that users can create their own superthemes

    Most of the MS-supplied themes are, in fact, superthemes and do a nice job of switching between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio presentations. We need to be able to provide this functionality with custom themes we create ourselves. The tool is out there somewhere; please give us access to it. Thanks!

  7. Insert HTML

    It would be great to be able to insert formatted HTML into Powerpoint slides. I sometimes write presentations about Development and have to insert code samples formatted in C# or JS style. It would be great if code samples keep formatting fom Visual Studio or at least that they keep the HTML formatting from blog post addins

  8. Select slide layout from slide sorter view

    To be able to set slide layout from the slide sorter view. Especially to select multiple slides - say dividers for example and set them all at once. (I know you can do this in normal view but it is a LOT of scrolling on 60 - 250 slide decks)

  10. Set Slide Numbering as the Default

    Set slide numbering to be the default setting when beginning a new Power Point presentation. Everyone is using this program to present their information. In the educational sector, Power Point has become the text book of the this generation and the next. Will you please give our students page numbers for their text books?

  12. GIF that works as expected.

    I was truly thankful to see GIF among all other export options when I explored Powerpoint. So I tried to save my video to GIF. I even set the playback to 'automatic'. Then I saved the presentation as GIF. But, when I checked the output, it's a still photo. It doesn't move. At all. How does a GIF save work? Please explain. Thank you so much. If I did something wrong, please tell me what to do. I am using 2013.

  14. I would like to be able to produce a single .doc or .txt file from all my slide notes, with slide numbers but without images

    It would be very convenient to have all my notes on a few pages for use when making the presentation, without images

  15. Edit Variants in Custom themes

    I would like to be able to create variants in a corporate customised template. The presentation will represent different brands within the company without changing the template.

  16. Graphical alignment line to modify

    Current PPT after adding graphics, some automatically align graphic beyond borders, leading to snap to guides will be highlighted. Make automatic adsorption guides feature very tasteless, hoping to trim the logic

  17. BUG: Pen - Mouse update prevents selecting "Curve" in Drawing Shapes

    Mouse as selector works fine. "Pen as mouse update" 3/15 negatively affects "Shapes and Lines selection. Especially,
    Home-_>Drawing window

    a. Selecting any shape automatically inserts it into slide.
    b. Always inserts a Line when you click Curve.

  18. Not allow PPT2013 or 2016 to maximize or ensure fit when changing page size

    Is there a way to change the page size in 2013 and 2016, so it does not maximize or ensure fit of the content? I would like the page to be distorted in a certain instance.

  19. When converting to video in PowerPoint 2016, to make bookmarks work again (they failed to work in the latest "upgrade" ["downgrade"??])

    Converting to video from PowerPoint 2016 is a bigger hassle than in 2013. Earlier, the bookmarks on embedded videos no longer work. So one has to do them manually. Now in the latest "upgrade" of 2016 (actually, a drastic downgrade), even the bookmarks on embedded audio no longer work! Again, one has to do them manually, as the video conversion ignores ALL bookmarks now!!

  20. Have PowerPoint prompt for footer changes

    Create a setting/option for users to get a save prompt to check for footer correctness in the slide master; secondary option to have it only prompt if it suspects an error (ex: past date); MSFT is already doing this AI with Outlook attachments (prompting if it thinks you missed attaching a doc)
