  1. I need the ALLCAPS feature in Powerpoint. I seems to currently only exist in Word. I use JavaScript to make text uppercase.

    in word there is a font.AllCaps property.
    in powerpoint there is a button to make text seem AllCaps, but there seems to be no property font.AllCaps for javascript. I need this!

  2. Enable invisible texts on main slide.( Not visible on secondary screen)

    Can we have a "notes" substitute. Ability to hide the rest of the paragraph from the secondary display and only the presenter can see it on the PC display.

    The current " notes" do the same things but it is cumbersome and may not orient with the mother paragraph its trying to explain

  3. Fix insufficient reduction of text size in text areas when "reduce font to text zone" setting is enabled

    This feature is obviously broken and has been for years. Text will easilty overflow outside of the texte box even when this mode is enabled, and the set margins are not respected.

  4. Power point pinned files

    my pinned files (right click on power point destop icon in the task bar) are different than in the powerpoint client > open> pinned.
    they should be the same also we should allow for more (the square should expand and fill the screen)

  5. How about making an 'order by appearance of key word' option for these suggestions? E.g., default page set-up.

    How many of these are there? And how many have 'default' in them somewhere? It would sure help in the search for help before new item(s) is (are) posted!

  9. Online pictures with Screen Readers

    When using Online Pictures in PowerPoint or Word with a screen reader, the images lack a description other than dimensions and short URL to image. Have I missed something or do I need to enable somewhere in the application to get a full description? Is it not available, have asked the community and was told to come here. I tried with the popular Jaws text-to-speech, Windows Narrator and yet to try on any others but fear this probably will be the same. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

  14. The Ability to Change the White/Black Screen to a Slide of your Choice

    You should add a Feature which would allow the user to create a slide for when they want to talk about something but not use a White or Black Screen so they could set a custom slide which would replace the White/Black Screen.

  17. Do not automatically update surrounding points while editing points

    While in edit points mode of a shape or motion path, if one point is moved or changed - depending on the shape - the adjacent points will also have their tangents automatically adjusted. Example: make a circle. Right click on it and choose Edit Points. You would think that you could delete one of the points and make a semi-circle (i.e. half a circle with a flat side). Or, maybe it would make a rounded half circle, but the part of the circle you didn't touch should remain the same. Instead, when you delete one of the points, the…

  18. Correct scaling of embedded excels between Windows 100% and 125% fonts and other elements configuration.

    In Windows resolution configurations i have set 100% for font and other elements. When i save a ppt document with and embeded excel objet, if i change the configuration to 125% for fonts and other elements and then open the same ppt again, the embeded object appears oversized as you can see in the images.

    You can see it at:

    I'm just suggesting if you can make a new ROLL TRANSITION for PowerPoint presentations about cooking, education and science or scientific discoveries.

  20. Action Buttons

    Hyperlink to move forwards/backwards multiply slides does not work until PowerPoint is closed and reopened. Not an issue until the last update. Customer support confirms this needed correction.
