  2. Translation of a full PowerPoint presentation

    In the PowerPoint Presentation Translator Add In, there was subtitles (integrated now natively in PowerPoint) but also a way to translate a full presentation from one language to another language.

    This features was really used for all international company and as the Add-In has been removed, it's really a pain for lots of users. On my side, I will loose at least 4h per month not to have this features in PowerPoint.

  5. Ability to lock the width and height of tables; content scrollable

    Currently, if I have a spreadsheet that is larger than a slide, I have to break the spreadsheet up and have each part on a separate slide.

    It would be great to be able to create tables with the ability to lock the height and width for the rows, columns, and the table as a whole - then for the table to automatically become scrollable within that slide if the content exceeds the pre-determined height and/or width of the table.

  6. WHEN Opening multiple documents and presentation idea

    When opening multiple files in Word or Powerpoint, etc, it would be convenient for them to show up as tabs in the upper part like pages when you open them in a browser. It gets annoying to switch between docs from the toolbar below. I hope you guys do this, programs like Photoshop, Illustrator have this tab thing also.

  8. Dynamic reuse of slides

    I very frequently reuse slides from other decks but the current reuse by copy model doesn't work for me because there's no way to check whether the slide has been updated by the owner. Ideally, when I reuse a slide I would like it to maintain a link to where I got the slide from and if it is changed, change it in my deck as well. Or at least prompt me to flow the changes in the original slide through to my deck.

  9. Rich text formatting of Notes Pane should be visible in Normal View and Presenter View as well.

    It would be nice to have richtext formatting also visible in the Notes pane in the Normal view. There actually are context-sensitive options to highlight text, change font size, use colors, but it is only visible in the Notes Page view. Currently, it is only bold and italic that is displayed in the Normal View.

  10. Make the chart formatting independent from the Region & Language settings

    PowerPoint uses the language defined in the Region & Language settings of Control Panel to format chart and graphs. This means that if a French presentation is opened on an English computer, the French formatting is lost and reverts to English. Commas get converted to periods, spacing is lost and, worst of all, dates are displayed in the wrong language. This results in presentations that look unprofessional and riddled with mistakes through no fault of the author. There needs to be a way to set the default language for a presentation and/or force the formatting to be displayed in that…

  11. zoom out when leaving a slide zoom

    If I have slide 2 in slide 1

    Problem:
    The slideshow will go
    Slide 1, zoom into Slide 2, show slide 3

    Solution:
    It would be much less jarring if
    Slide 1, zoom into Slide 2, zoom out of Slide 2, Show slide 3

  12. presenter view 2016 has a single preview of the next slide. I would like to be able to see all the slides down the bottom like 2010

    Bring back presenter view as in Powerpoint 2010. I use 2010 at Church, seeing more than the next slide allows me to see what the minister is going to say next and preview several upcoming slides so when he jumps ahead, I am not lost. 2010 powerpoint presenter allows me to use the bottom slider to go through all slides when I need it to go back or forward as needed in the presentation without jumping to the all slides screen

  13. powerpoint

    Maybe allow the user's to use the design feature the whole way through instead of accidently clicking off it and then not being able to access half way through.

  20. Upgrade the camera view with narration

    Please make it possible to record the camera view :
    one slide at a time,
    NEXT to the slide not ON it,
    using a virtual background
    enable speaker notes to be not in view at top of screen
    Then you would be a market leader and I would be very happy!
