  1. Design Ideas could include animations and transitions

    Design Ideas are great and they help speed up good looking presentations a lot - I wish you added animations to your design ideas at some point

  2. Allow Unblocking of Executables

    Please see the thread at the link below for details / one example.

    In short, make it very hard for a user to run an embedded executable application from PowerPoint, and even make it impossible to embed such executables in new documents, but do NOT make it absolutely impossible for users to run these in existing / legacy documents, which may still be in wide use across an enterprise. Even registry hacks are no longer possible (though that is never a friendly scenario for users).

    This is possible through non-default user choices in policies of the Trust Center, and can…

  3. First and foremost, open the suggestion link in the default browser, NOT Internet Explorer!!!!!

    Why is this still happening? Internet Explorer maybe has a place as a backup browser within Windows 10, but not as an active link accepting program. PowerPoint's suggestion page should open in Edge at the very least, but preferably the default browser of the users pc

  4. Allow me to select which content goes where in 'Design Ideas'

    I enjoy getting inspiration from 'Design Ideas' for my powerpoint slides, but I am incredibly frustrated by the lack of customization within a Design Idea. In particular when I have multiple pictures, I cannot chose which picture goes where (and inevitably the Design Ideas tab prioritizes the pictures incorrectly).

    Please let me choose which picture goes where in a Design Idea.

  7. Include tiles from Power BI dashboards and reports

    I have a bunch of data that I visualize in Power BI and I'd like to include it in my PowerPoint presentations. I view the need similarly to how Slide Library is implemented - PPT should be able to grab a tile from a PBIX file or the PBI web service and have it dynamically update whenever the source updates. Parity with the way Excel charts can be pasted into PPT would be great.

  8. Spellcheck

    The spellcheck available in outlook and word is significantly more capable at checking grammer and orthographic mistakes than the current one in PPT. I am kindly requesting that the additional spell check capabilities be implemented into PPT.

  9. Rotate text 180 degrees inside shapes

    There are shapes, such as certain rectangles, in which it would be useful to allow the rotation of text to 180 degrees. There are some workarounds involving the 3-d rotation text effects the results are poor.

  10. Add placeholder slides for planning

    Make it possible to add a placeholder slide with a To-Do action on it for later task. I.e. "Here should the agenda slide be made" or "insert slide on future trends"

  11. Copy and Paste Animations (Animation Pane)

    Allow us to duplicate animations within the animation pane, so that we can easily assign the exact same animation to multiple triggers. As is it has to be manually added and then modified individually for every object and every trigger.

  12. Include 'Package for CD' in the latest version of PowerPoint

    To whom it may concern
    I have been a HUGE fan of PowerPoint for the longest time and have been using to great effect for multiple purposes however, I have a major issue that I need help with. One of the ways I have been using PowerPoint (2007) is highly interactive programs and courseware used on whiteboards for teachers and students to interact with and learn from. I do this by creating the content with PowerPoint (2007) and use the 'Package for CD' function to package the content. I then use iexpress (free software that comes with Windows) to convert…

  13. Show Size of File

    Always, before sharing the ppt file by email, i need to check the file size (due to restriction in office). But everytime i want to check, always need to go to explorer and check the size.

    It will be better, in your dropdown menu on top (or other file) you mention the actual size of file, updated automatically.

  14. more modern animation options, or more possibilities of customization.

    Keynote has a great feature that creates a transition between two slides transforming the text from one to another. this would be great.

    Many animation options feel quite outdated (such as bounce, boomerang, credits, swivel), they should be completely revamped asap.

    Other animation options (such as zoom in/out, peek in, strips, wipe) should be possible to happen at any angle, not only up/down/left/right. They also should have a smooth start/end/bounce end option just as many of the other ones. Especially the zoom, it's so linear I prefer to use it alongside grow/shrink, but of course this is far from being…

  15. No more able to change font size in notes window (normal view)

    For a long time now I could change the font size in the notes window in normal view. However this isnt the case anymore (Well I saw that the changes are applied but not shown) and it would seem to be a really large font (20pt?) I am stuck with now...

    While I would love to understand the reasoning behind this I want to request changing this back to how it was.

    I cannot think of a good explanation why you would let people change font size but not showing to them but wanting to confuse or annoy them.

    So…

  16. embed videos from sources other than YouTube and Vimeo

    allow videos from LInkedIn Learning to be embedded on PPT slides - i think it should be supported as long as you have the embed code

  19. Allow a slideshow music view and be able to see music length.

    1. Show music on the slideshow not just one slide, so that it is easier for timing of slides.
    2. When you add music to the first slide and then do a preview if you don't start at the first slide the music does not continue where you left off.
    3. Music should continue on other slides as you correct and edit the slides.
