  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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)

  12. "Auto-Reverse" for Transparency Animation

    It's just like another way to make animation loop seamless.
    The idea is a checkbox like "Auto-Reverse" in other animations. After the Transparency done, the object will turn back into no transparency for a while. This' may meaningless in simple case but It'll help to control the object draw order (like Z-Depth) in animation, make it possible to loop animations like flip cards, object go behind another then go above it (something like this https://gblobscdn.gitbook.com/assets%2F-M3EXlibk6bj2FzPQW-9%2F-MXZYdH1VnApRXn6r7tt%2F-MXdkBYlA37I43RczryP%2Fdraw%20order.gif)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Left navigation thumbnail's indentation

    As user I want left navigation's thumbnail can be indent to represent subdomain of above slide. More like it does on OneNote so visually works like folder and subfolder. It makes everyone easier to navigate based on domains/contexts when having tons of slides, instead of linear structure. Having ability to multiple indentation on the thumbnails will be considered a big improvement to us.
