  1. Improve ScreenTip

    I want additional info to pop up next to the mouse cursor when I hover over certain shape in a slide.
    I know 'ScreenTip" but it's very limited. For example, with ScreenTip it's impossible to write multiline text or change color text.
    Please to improve screenTip function

    • Enhance the ability to add additional animations to 3d images with preset animations

      Currently, we have the ability to insert 3D images with preset animations. Really cool feature by the way. However, if I want to add additional animations to images with preset animations, the original animations are lost. For instance, the drone has propellers which turn, but when I try to get the drone to fly across the slide, the propellers stop.

      • More Precise "Character Spacing" Menu

        I often need to slightly squeeze some text (e.g. condense by 0.2 or 0.3), but current "Character Spacing" main options are very imprecise ('Tight' is 1.5, waaay too much.)

        And going through 'More Spacing' to get, say, a 0.3 condense requires 11 clicks!

        Please add 1-2 'Slight Squeeze' options to the drop down menu, or even a pair of Increase/Decrease buttons with 0.1-point steps. It would be a huge time saver!

        • SAVE function be able to save to multiple locations with one click.

          For all Office applications, I would like to see SAVE function be able to save to multiple locations (disks and files) with one click. That way, I can keep backup copies current with working copy.

            • Object touch trigger

              There should be a trigger so that when moving objects touch, a action happens.

              • Enhanced Animation Pane

                More control over timings, duration, etc. Moving animation order can throw the entire sequence off. Animation start/end time should stay the same when reordering.

                • Collapse Hidden Slides

                  So they just show up as a sliver like in Keynote versus a grayed out frame, which can sometimes be hard to tell from a non-hidden slide.

                  • 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.

                    • Animation Synchronization to Voice Over

                      I make voice over presentations with PowerPoint. Each slide has a separate mp3 file. During the development of large multi-part training presentations there is the need to change slide content often that requires adjustment of text, animations and thus the recording.

                      At present I have to listen the slide, note when I want the animation to start and stop etc to match the voice over. Any change to the text usually means the process must repeated for all animations.

                      It would be helpful if there was a way to click to move to the next animation and adjust as needed…

                        • I would like to be able to animate individual cells of a table.

                          I want to be able to create four tables holding four bridge hands and play a trick by moving the contents of one cell (a card) per table to a fifth table representing a trick. Then do some animations on the trick itself. I should be able to format table rows, columns and individual cells like Excel to make this really useful for teaching a bridge class on play of the hand. I need to be able to repeat the layout of the hands 40 times for 40 different hands.

                          • connector node in center of shape

                            While connectors can be very handy for simple charts they can be extremely frustrating when drawing complex diagrams. In this case the limitations of the node positions on a shape and the inability to create a line that does not behave like a connector causes me an inordinate amount of effort to get the lines and shapes to behave how I want. One possible solution to some of this would be to have a node in the centre of shapes so that connectors can auto connect to the centre. A preferable solution would be the ability to switch off auto…

                                • Add a countdown timer or stopwatch

                                  As a teacher to keep lesson pace going I want to display a task and give a time to complete it. I know I can preset animations to do a countdown but want to be able to change the time on the spot to adapt to the situation rather than pre-plan it.

                                  I did have a flash based timer that you could enter the time straight in to as you were presenting but it no longer works, it would be great to have this as a PowerPoint feature.

                                      • Bring Immersive Reader to PowerPoint Desktop and Online

                                        In schools, PowerPoints are often referred back to by students, rather than solely being used to present. Students with learning needs would benefit from being able to use Learning Tools/ Immersive Reader in PowerPoint, just as they can in OneNote/ Word.
