  1. Img-Placeholder/Master slide/devLocksAspectR/UserfriendlyGUI4rookiesto cropImginpopup/criteria is set inMSlide#CharacterLimitsSuk_btw

    Damn. I spent the last 15 min trying to jamb my suggestion into a limited character box. What a waste of time. What wouldn't be a waste of time is for the developers of MS PPT to tweak the placeholder object. I'd like to see a specific placeholder for images that a developer of templates is capable of specifying a locked aspect ratio. When a user chooses a layout option that includes an image specific placeholder, upon clicking it to choose the photo, a popup is triggered in which the image chosen is shown with the predetermined aspect crop lines…

          • Import PPTX objects as slices in Photoshop CC

            Simple idea that Photoshop should identify all objects, graphics and assets in a slide under different layers automatically.

            • Better color management for cross-theme copy/pastes

              We have a number of unique corporate templates, and for business reasons many of them have independent color themes.

              However, it is common to move content across templates- something was used in a sales template, now it needs to be moved into a training template, then the same content/image/slide needs to be moved into an executive deck template.

              It seems that tables (and perhaps other objects- all shapes?) lose their color formatting when moved across decks that have different color themes. I'm assuming this is because of the template's theme or custom color schema. The result is that we have…

              • make design ideas available in slide master

                I have a slide and used design ideas to format. It looks great however when I created the next slide a similar format was not presented.

                Where a side design has been created for 1 slide have the ability to choose that design style again from the design ideas section. Or use the same design ideas again as first choice.

                Love the design ideas section just cruising that can't get consistent results within the 1 slide pack.

                • Use the group command on placeholders

                  It would be great to add placeholders into a group because your clients tend to duplicate and reuse placeholders (instead of creating a new text box), not knowing that when it comes to selecting everything and resizing uniformly, placeholders hinder the process.

                  Or at least a quick option to replace a placeholder element with a normal textbox/shape element.

                        • In Powerpoint (ppt) office 365 Animation, Cortana and Sound/Music Features

                          Animation Feature
                          1. Animate background slide - Custom/Clip Art/My Picture
                          2. Set it on timer or continuously while keeping the slides active/alive.
                          3. Include different animated effects and colours.
                          Example - "Think of burning flames effect"

                          Microsoft Cortana
                          Insert Microsoft Cortana (nice voice by the way-wink, wink) as a slide text narrator for when creating explanations slides/full presentations.

                          Sound/Music
                          1. Insert more options such as fade in-out when inserting my own sound/music for the slide show.
                          2. Insert a Repeat option, so that I can control how and what slide(s) I want the music file play per slide or slides.

                              • Please make it easier to adjust pictures based on pixel size instead of just inches.

                                Either allow us to choose between pixels or inches in picture edit section, or do the conversion for us automatically upon selection. I am tired of this crap where you don't have any pixels sizing. If you have it, stop hiding the function.

                                • Side panel goes back to default size reopening PowerPoint

                                  Microsoft agent is aware and suggested' I post on feedback. I' hope for a faster fix if people vote. Here is the posted reply from Rena Yu at Microsoft.

                                  Based on our test:

                                  1. The animation pane stays in a default size when we re-open the presentation file in the latest
                                  Monthly 1811(11029.20079)
                                  Monthly Targeted Channel 1811(11029.20079)
                                  Semi-Annual Targeted Channel 1801(10730.20205).

                                  2. The animation pane can remember the custom size and doesn’t go back to a default size in the latest
                                  Semi-Annual Channel 1803(9126.2315).

                                  We are trying to report this behavior. It may take some time to get a response…

                                    • Add section names to headers on the Handouts page.

                                      I want to be able to have handouts print with my section names in the headers. I wouldn't need a new page to start with each new section (although that's a possible option); if a section changes in the middle of a handout page, the header could read something like "Section 1 / Section 2."

                                      • Saving Outline view

                                        I use Outline all the time but wen I save it returns in standard view.
                                        Could the Outline view be saved with the document?
