  1. Notes Master page resize

    Currently there is no way to resize the notes master page without editing the .xml properties. We need to be able to resize this through the GUI to fix arbitrary file corruption happening on our presentations.

  2. The text-way animation

    there should be a text way animation to apply handwriting effect with the hand picture. there should be an option to set a point of the object i.e. shape or a picture, to move on the way of that animation. in this animation the text should be written like the handwriting

  3. Slide Timer Insert Facility Tools

    Actually, We used every time many operation with presentation but actually I need a option that shown every slider timer. Like example - when we start our presentation then slide change page to page but viewer noted the every point that are important in this presentation but sometimes they can't understand how many second keep stay in this slide page and then move to next slide. So I feel that it's better to working and presentation time for showing presentation slide timer input facilicty that are shown analog or digital clock style. Thank you!

  4. Bigger canvas value than 56 inches

    56 inches is the maximum that a PowerPoint is going to go up to, however a bigger resolution is what we live to see. Greater value, greater visibility and a greater effect of all the images and designs will surely come together in a dynamic way if this number gets stretched, and literally so! Moreover, PowerPoint presentations are used for large-scale events, and therefore having a feature that extends in size would be beneficial.

  5. Back and forth video play

    We have already stressed on videos being an essential part of PowerPoint presentations, and going in sync with that is this one feature which is of the back and forth video play that is yet to be seen and made use of in PowerPoint. If one needs to make a reverse loop quirky content for social media content, then this would be a very useful feature.

  6. Support drag and drop EPS files

    While PowerPoint has started supporting .SVG files lately, it is important that a globally known vector format like EPS should also be made available. This would be great, as it would help avoid the unnecessary step of having to convert files before using them.

  7. Save each slide as separate video

    If you are using PowerPoint to create Instagram content, or anything related to social media, instead of hiding slides manually in order to export videos, it would be great to have a mechanism through which we could save every slide as a separate video, as that would make the process easy and less cumbersome.

  8. Pre-integrated Animated Icons

    Bringing the PPT to life with pre-integrated animated icons is next level innovation that we hope becomes a possibility in the near future. Icon sets are great, but animation is where the world is right now, and we hope that PowerPoint picks up on this soon!

  9. Replace color in the entire deck

    Yes, everything on the PowerPoint application is easy, and a lot of things can be executed with just a few clicks, but replacing the entire color in the deck in one go is still not a possibility in PowerPoint. If one has to attempt to change the color, that person has to do it manually, which is definitely more time consuming, and becomes a hassle.

  12. Adjust Wrap to shape

    I would love to see text in shapes automatically wrapping to the form of the shape. So when rounding the corners of an rectangle for an example, the text-wrapping should automatically adapt to the form and not overflow the borders.

  13. Improve error msg "PowerPoint can't start this feature because you currently have a Visual Basic for Applications project in break mode."

    This message is displayed when there is an unhandled error in a customUI callback. It's extremely difficutl to debug as it can occur as PowerPoint and it's registered add-ins load. What is "this feature"? Which add-in caused it? Why can't we enter debug mode? I posted to @Office365 below and raised an in-app frown as this could affect many many users. This thread (with MVP input) demonstrates the Heisenbug nature of the issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/54432885/periodically-getting-vba-break-mode-error-messages-when-loading-ribbon-controls

  14. Customizing of multiple monitor setups

    I do a lot of corporate events as an AV-technician, and it bugs me every time that I can't work with multiple monitors for presentations. The poor support for multiple monitors should be better in 2019.

    My setups usually consist of three monitors, where one is my monitor for opening and controlling presentations, one confidence-monitor for the presenter and obviously the projector. In an ideal world I would have "Presenter view" on both the confidence-monitor and my own, and the slides on the projector. As of today it's even a challenge to have two out of three monitors display "anything",…

  15. Create a presentation tree

    Presentations work on a linear form, one slide after the other. Create a presentation tree, with presentation lines. Linear lines moves with left/rigth arrows or pointer and branched slides with up/down arrows or pointers.

    This way, during a presentation, the first slide on the tree can have more condensed information and, depending on the audience or remaining presentation time, go deeper on specific subjects, without the need to create several presentations.

  17. Search for the commands you want to add to the QAT

    When adding commands to the QAT from the "All Commands" option, we have to scroll through hundreds of features to find the ones we want to add to the QAT. Could we add a search window in that dialog box, in addition to the list of all PowerPoint's features? It would be a great time saver!

  18. Add support for more 3D file formats

    Additional file formats such as .jt or .stp would be great for adding models to presentations.

  19. Zonal OCR for localization of screenshots

    I create most of my documentation images in PowerPoint because all text has to be editable. Therefore it would be great to drag a square around the text I need to OCR in a screenshot and just create a text box out of it in PowerPoint. This would make the screenshots easy to translate. Right now, I extract text, but I can't make the text in an image editable without OCRing (and usually destroying) the entire image. I've also found no third-party tools that would offer a workaround.

  20. Applying the save as even when the windows get expired

    For there are some of us who's having a hard time to renew our windows and I really hope the "save as" options would be available even when we could not edit.
