  7. Videos in Presenter Mode

    I have Microsoft Office Professional 2016 and I inserted a YouTube video in my PowerPoint 2016 presentation and the slide with the video will not play in Presenter Mode. It will play in non-presenter mode and in "duplicate slide show" setting but i am doing a presentation and would like to not disturb the flow. What can i do? It seems that there's a bug in Presenter Mode. I had a very long dialogue on Microsoft Community with many suggestions without any solutions. This is an essential feature. It doesn't make sense to download YouTube videos for a presentation when…

  9. Skeletal animation

    Add a feature that will allow you to move the pivot point of a shape anywhere by dragging it. This will make skeletal animation possible.

  10. Half arrow, 'tee' arrow, and combined half arrow with 'tee'

    There exists a modeling language called bond graphs where 'elements' are connected by power bond which are depicted as lines with half arrows on one end. Also, there is a 'causal' stroke added to either end of the power bond line. This causal stroke is a short vertical line, perpendicular to the bond line (let's call it a 'tee' end). It would be extremely useful to have three more arrow style options: 1) half arrow, 2) half arrow with tee at tip of arrow, and 3) 'tee' arrow head

  12. Reduce Size of the Variants Gallery and Display Font Theme, Color Theme and Effects Theme Icons on the Design tab

    The Variants group in 2013 and later versions hides the more important Font Theme, Color Theme and Effects Theme options. I think they should be at the top level on the Design tab in the Ribbon and reduce the space for Variants to an icon with a drop-down menu.

  13. More controls for the wheel animation

    The wheel animation's direction (clockwise / counterclockwise) and the radial position of it's "starting point" are currently fixed. Being able to alter both of these would enable a variety of new animation options, such as curved arrows and paths that appear to draw themselves.

  14. Slide masters need at least two more grouping levels.

    There is a desperate need for a slightly more hierarchical approach to Masters. Most users don't need an arbitrary number of levels, as some people have been asking for. But the vast majority of users need at least the option of two more levels of organization to help streamline the presentation creation process.

    Currently, the hierarchy of slides look like this:

    Master
    . ┗Slide

    It needs to look something more like this:

    Master
    . ┗Slide Group Master (optional)
    . . ┗Slide Master (optional)
    . . . ┗Slide Variants

    Here's how the proposed setup would work:

    Masters: allows user to place…

  15. Need Ultrawide Monitor Compatibility Aspect Ratio - 21:9 and 32:9 + Slide partition

    Hi,
    We started using UltraWide monitors 21:9 for many employees and our analyst are using 32:9 monitors. We wish to have more control on slide size compatibility and introduce a concept of slide partition, where each partition acts like independent power point. It will be useful to hold one partition and go with presentation of other partitions.

    regards,
    singaravelu s

  16. Don't allow all my work to dissappear

    I worked on a PowerPoint for a long time, then I saved and it said "read only", so I clicked Save As, chose a name, and it saved a blank file.

    This SUCKS. Your product SUCKS. This should NOT be possible. I lost a lot of shit I won't remember now.

  18. Reuse slides to show slide names

    New version of Reuse slides only displays the slides available as "slide 1", "slide 2, etc. instead of using the real name assigned via Outline view. This was available on a previous version. Now, I can't distinguish which slide I want to add as I cannot see the contents. The preview is small and cannot be zoomed in.

  19. Display full file name in the top of the screen

    On the edit mode the files names are cut and not displayed in full. This sometimes leads to confusion on the file being edited (mostly on long file names with versions at the end). There's enough space in that section of the screen to display longer file names (in a previous version this was also shown when hovering the mouse pointer on the file but it is gone now.

  20. Set timing to advance after the animations end

    There's an option to advance slide on mouse click, or on after a specific amount of time after the slide starts. It would be nice if there was another option to advance after a specific amount of time after all the animations are over.
