  1. Double-click and drag should work like every other Windows (& Mac) app

    See this post and the ones I reference in it: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_powerpoint-mso_mac-mso_365hp/double-click-and-drag-text-selection-still-broken/302d7abb-fcba-4778-94c0-059d8c5221fa?messageId=70a69844-d87a-4ebf-8233-b37a333b59f8&page=1

    In every app on Windows & Mac, if you double-click a word and drag on the second click, it selects the whole word and other words that you drag to. Single click and drag selects individual characters as usual.

    However, in Powerpoint (and only Powerpoint), when the "When selecting, automatically select entire word" option is turned off, double-click and drag does not work like this. It works identically to single-click and drag: a character-by-character select (though it tricks you into thinking it will do a word-by-word select by at…

  3. Exporting text with a background color as a graphic image includes an unwanted transparent area.

    Exporting text with a background color as a graphic image includes an unwanted transparent area around the image. The only way currently to fix this is to add a text fill >> solid line >> width 0pt and then the transparent area is removed. It should be the default for saving images.

  5. Start YouTube Video from Presenter view, not only on the presentation screen

    When displaying a PowerPoint file with a YouTube video in it, you should be able to click on the video in Presenter View to start the video displaying on the presentation screen. Currently I have to move the mouse over to the presentation screen and click on the video there. This can be awkward when the screen is behind me.

  6. Additional size selection and design choices

    If there was the ability to create in PP then Change Shape/size for Facebook and Instagram posts. Ability to preselected Ad image size I e FB new standard sizes and transform one image size to another in Design. So if I create a horizontal image for FB but want a square of same image for Instagram have the design fester offer choice to change the size and present a revised layout with same image and copy. I could have this ad-on developed but thought it would be a way for Microsoft to re-market a new and current version of PowerPoint.

  8. Save as original for grouped pictures

    Usually, one can edit a picture in powerpoint and then save it as an image file. This can be done with the regular "save" option or the "save as original" dropdown option, which keeps the native resolution. However, the second option is not available for multiple images selected at the same time or grouped image, meaning if one tries to export those images they can only do so with high amounts of compression. Could you please add the ability to save original grouped images?

  9. Export to Video with embedded videos included.

    Currently, Powerpoint does not play embedded videos in the exported video file. Only the audio gets played. This feature needs to be updated so that both video and audio files embedded in the powerpoint presentation can be viewed in the exported video.

  10. create the option to put the 'Notes' section on the side

    most monitors are wide screen, so bringing up the notes section makes the slides in view much smaller and leaves a lot of wasted space along the sides.

  16. Set default values for a 3D object camera settings (field of view & z position settings)

    If you adjust the camera setting of a 3D object (specifically the field of view and z position to remove the perspective applied to a 3D model), the new values get removed if you change the object orientation (i.e changing the view from top to view from the side). It would be useful ti be able to lock the user applied camera settings.

  17. Ability to remove all themes in PowerPoint and use only your custom theme

    It would be nice if the pre installed themes in PowerPoint could be removed completely, so that the user could add their theme, and have that available as the only option. This is important when sending files to a client. The themes in PowerPoint are outdated to begin with, and more of an eyesore than a help. There are a number of themes which can not be removed. PLEASE update the program so we can remove these outdated themes! I would be happy to design some themes for you which are more current!

  18. Keep pen colours visible during Slideshow

    During a slideshow, I'd love to have the colour palette for pen to be always visible at the top right. This would help me save a ton of time for switching between different colours while annotating the slide. Moreover, the choices for colours are also pretty less.

  20. Comprehensive Grammar checks missing in PowerPoint

    I have been looking for an option where PowerPoint can check grammar and language the way MS Word does. I understand that it has the functionality of providing arbitrary suggestion, but looking for a more comprehensive way to reduce grammatical error while creating PowerPoint Presentations. Adding a tool lile Grammarly would prove to be really helpful to PowerPoint.
