  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

    Removing the “Under Review” tag since this idea does not have sufficient votes for us to take on as a new feature.

    We want to make sure the User Voice site is up to date with the engineering efforts we are making. Please continue submitting ideas and voting.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. imitate inkscape

    All is wrong with your user interface. The grid size, not being able to lock items, the bug where you can't reload linked pngs, I can write all day. Do you know Inksscape? Learn from those guys and save my hours of hate.

  16. Have a different color for the File tab in all office themes to avoid confusion between Home and File tab

    In PowerPoint 2016, the File tab is the same color as the Home tab, I keep clicking File instead of Home which overlays the screen with the welcome screen. You should have a different color for File tab which has a different behavior as other tabs in all themes (not only the white one)

  19. I want to design projects for clients in Microsoft PowerPoint Experts website

    I use PowerPoint for all sorts of works of my own. From making presentations of contests to promotional videos. I think I have the capability to meet the clients need. I like to work with and without templates and insert images and gifs to make it colorful and attractive. I love to insert simple animations to make presentations trendy yet formal and also add the necessary transitions so, the client does not need to click multiple times to change slides and can give confident speech.
    I would really look forward for your reply.

  20. Change slides using mobile app

    I am a teacher and the idea of walking to the laptop every time to change the slide is tiring. The use of a presenter is somewhat limited as I cannot tell what the next slide is. It would be great if we can pair the phone to the system and use the phone to change the slide and view the upcoming slides. This feature was once available and was one of the best features for teachers.
