  1. We need new textures

    The textures provided in the Picture or Texture fills are incredibly dated. Can you give us some new textures, please? I'm really tired of the fish in sand.(Does anyone ever actually use that?)

  2. Make a setting to turn a power point into notes

    There should be an option for students to take a power point and turn them into effect notes to study or for teachers to make fill in the blank.

  3. Save in PDF format with Notes

    "Printing to PDF" produces low quality document (even if "high quality" option is checked). The next best thing to do is to use "Save as pdf" - however, there's no option to include the notes in each slide.

  4. Bring Powerpoint font handling to modern industry standard

    Typeface naming and menu listing has been standardized in the industry since about the year 2000. See Adobe apps.

    But Powerpoint still fails to properly list typefaces that are perfectly handled by almost any other application in the world.

    When Powerpoint loads standard, high-quality commercial typefaces, it routinely gets all the weights wrong and even assigns italic names to non-italic faces.

    Font naming, loading, and menu listing were solved and standardized years ago, but Powerpoint is still behaving like a 1995 application.

    We need to be able to use quality, industry standard resources.

    We also need to be able to…

  5. Presenter View: Show more than just the next bullet point.

    In PPT 2010 I could see all of the upcoming bullet points on my slide. This allowed me to have an overall picture of where I was going and made for smooth presentations. Now that PPT only displays the next upcoming bullet point it's stressful and requires more continued thought. It's also handy to see the next couple of slides without having to click on a different view.

  6. Add ThisPresentation object in VBA

  7. Abilty to reference currently selected comment through VBA

    It would be helpful to be able to reference the active/selected user comment. For example, when the user deletes a comment, it would be great to be able to store that comment in a variable.

  11. Improve the interface!

    Make sure that every element on every ribbon has tab access so we can move easily between adjacent settings. We should not have to move and click the mouse just to move the cursor from one setting to another.

  12. Move comment box option

    Be able to move the notes section.
    I like that you can resize it but I would like to be able to move it so that it is off to the side like it is in presenter view. Often times there are so many notes that you either have to make the slide small or scroll to see them all. I find that in presenter view with the box vertical next to the slide instead of horizontal under the slide you can actually see all the notes.

    Having the ability to move where the notes box is would be a…

  13. Enable customization of object default format

    I don't use the shadows, I don't like blue lines. Why does each time I use a line it has to be blue, 2pt wide, and with a shadow? Why do I need to adapt to your software and not your software adapt to me?

    I am pulling my hair out.

  14. I usually use online MS Powerpoint and it is great, My idea is that it would be great to develop an online clicker for Windows phone

    I use online MS Powerpoint and love it, My idea is that it would be great if you could develop an online clicker for Windows phone. Unlike existing commercial clickers, it wouldn't need any extra piece of hardware or USB dongle.

  15. Allow copy/paste of slides without linking the data - like it has always done!

    With the new powerpoint 2016 you can no longer just copy a slide as the chart in the new slide will be linked to the data source of the original slide. it's not visible until you open the chart in the original slide and it changes to match the data you input for the new slide - so you have to slides with hte exact same data.

    I simply can't fathom why this is no longer possible to do

  16. Ability to evenly distribute columns or rows in a table

    The ability to edit a table in powerpoint is RUBBISH. It would be amazing if we could automatically change column / cell widths etc. so that it had the same formatting flexibility as in excel.

  17. Saving a slide as a jpeg

    When you save a A4 PowerPoint slide as a jpeg and insert that image in a A4 Word doc, the image does not cover the entire page. Dimensions of the image are smaller than A4.
