  2. (Loop effect) Alternating slides or images with a user defined timer

    Sometimes one wants to show differences between two images (representing medical, seismic, physics...). It is uncomfortable to hit right and left arrows to go back and forth to alternate the two slides or images. Even sometime in congress, the joystick given to the talker is not well design for such task. Thus, it would be nice to have the possibility to make loops either between two (or more) slides with a user defined timer, or making loops possible in the animations within a slide.

  3. Find slides that are using a layout

    When I create a custom template, I'd like to be able to search for slides that match a particular layout. Right now, the only way I know of to do that is to go into the Slide Master view and then hover the mouse over a specific slide layout.

    tl;dr I'd like to be able to search for slides that match a specific master+layout

  4. Make the pages A3

    Their is a setting for making pages A4 and A5 but not A3. So you have to custom set the page size.

  5. Make 2nd pen button lasso-select like in other office programs

    In most office programs, using the 2nd pen button on the stylus/pen functions as a "lasso select" button. In powerpoint however, for some reason, you have to manually select the "Lasso select" button in order to use it, and it doesn't activate through the pen button.

  6. Add Descriptive text to the preview screen for templates

    I'd like to be able to add some descriptive text to the preview screen that appears when you click a template in File New. Many of the downloadable templates in the various categories already have this, but I'd like to be able to do the same for templates that I create for colleagues.

  7. Offer more professional graphics and photos for presentations

    The current graphics look like a kindergartner drew them 40 years ago. Not suitable for high tech presentations to large international corporations, and only apply to business offices. I'm disappointed every time I want to break up large amounts of text and look for a graphic to use.

  8. Create a complex timeline

    When preparing for an event, presenting a project, or calendaring for a court case an easy-to-use-and-edit timeline to show to the group would be wonderful. Pictures speak louder than words! It would be great if it could automatically be configured using dates or outline numbering, and if it could be used in Word and Excel.

  9. 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.

  12. 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?

  14. 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!

  15. 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

  16. 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)

  18. 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?

  19. resolution

    The resolution(dpi) of PowerPoint 2016 PDF export is terrible (even when selecting :" Standard"). Where is the user option to set this?

  20. 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.
