  1. What if there was a way to link the slides with their notes(like arrows)? (presenter view)

    In regular view, there could be numbers in both an area on the slide & a note.

    In presenter view, there would be arrows pointing to the correct notes. This way, the creator only has to link 1 note with a point on the slide, instead of writing everything in notes!

    NOTE: The audience wouldn't be able to see the numbers, or the arrows!

  2. Bring back copy comments feature when copying slides

    It is much easier to delete the comments from a copied slide than to recreate all the comments when trying to combine two presentations into one.

  3. Hide/Unhide Section

  5. Automatic Video compression

    Let PowerPoint automatically compressed video, have it as an option in save that all video (images) are automatically compressed. Employees always forget to compressed videos. By having it automatically compress video (and images) it will help OneDrive and Sharepoint to save disk space and help with sync problems.

  6. there is no current option to apply all video in each slide in different size or location.

    There is no current option to apply all video in each slide in different size or location. the default is in the bottom right hand corner, you can't move all of the Videos on all of the slides to a different location on all slides at once.

  9. PowerPoint margin reference indicator lines need to be recoloured when using Dark Grey Office Theme

    When in Dark Grey Office Theme, the margin reference indicators in PowerPoint seem to disappear. Of course - they do not. It's just that the margin references are not recoloured (e.g. to white) in this theme, so they blend into the theme background colour (i.e. grey on grey) and cannot be seen.

  10. Display my most frequently used line spacing as a default

    I almost always work with 1.1 or 1.2 never with 1.5 or above. Each time I want my specific spacing, I need to go through an elaborate procedure to get to 1.1.
    1. First I need to go to the linespacing options and get it to drop down
    2. Then I need to click on customize
    3. Then I need to move the Line spacing options from Single to Multiple (why does this default exist as single, when I get to customise I should be able to directly just enter the number. Why this additional step)
    4. Then key in…

  11. PowerPoint allow animation pane and selection pane to be open at same time.

    Recent update to 365 made PowerPoint animation pane and selection pane automatically collapse when you open one, and the other is already open. Sometimes need to see both at same time, for example, when using animation painter in a complicated slide that requires selection pane to select target group or shape. Please make this auto-collapse feature an option, so we can immediately turn it off and never use it. We are good enough at PowerPoint to be able to decide if we want one pane open, or both at once. Don't need the software to force these decisions on us.

  12. Add .mov file format with alpha channel for transparent animated overlays

    I'd like to use PowerPoint to create transparent overlay videos for streamers. In order for this to work, I believe PowerPoint would have to have the ability to export/save as a .mov file type with the alpha channel enabled. How can we make this happen?!?!

    Icons and other functions are not available for 2016 office version. It could be great if add this functions to this version of Office, because a lot of people bought 2016 version just before 2019 version

  15. Find and Replace Color

    It would be great if there was a tool similar to the find and replace font tool, but instead for colors in the presentation. Choose one color in the presentation and replace all occurrences with a different color.

  18. Drawing Tools - Line Ends - add T Ends

    In Drawing Tools - Line Ends - Create a T End option to the arrows, diamonds and circles. I know MANY sport teams use Power Point to diagram plays, skills and drills and would appreciate. Added Bonus would be able to select widths of the T ends (ie: like you can with Arrow end sizes)
