  2. Configuring how total number of slides is displayed on slides (ex. 1 of 10)

    PowerPoint allows me to insert slide numbers. I'd like to be able to have it worded as "2 (of 12)", "3 (of 12)", etc.

    Feature variations:
    - #
    - # of #
    - slide # of #

    Ability to not show count on hidden slides.

  3. Include option to disable on-screen controls

    It's impossible to disable the bottom-left nav controls while using presenter view. This completely ruins software simulations where the presenter needs to click on interaction points on screen.
    Presently they can only be disabled by choosing the Browsed at a Kiosk option, which then disables Presenter View.

  4. Allow the option to change default pictures folder in PowerPoint

    Unlike Word, where we can change the default pictures folder for users, there is no such option available in PowerPoint. I have noticed making changes registry also does not have any effect in latest versions of PPT. Please allow this function, as it would benefits a lot of companies to direct their users to go directly to a folder with all brand approved images from within PowerPoint (just like in Word)

  6. Hide/Unhide Section

  7. Allowing .gifv & .webp files to be inserted in PowerPoint

    Please allow inserting of .gifv, .wep & other new types of files to work with PowerPoint. It is difficult for your users to keep converting these files into .gif before inserting them in presentations.

  8. Autosave safety blanket

    This has come up a fair few times in our company, we use O365 in conjunction with OneDrive and sometimes the Onedrive/SharePoint autosave doesn't actually save changes/create a new version.

    It would be great if a snapshot copy of all presentations could be kept locally on close if the user didn't save it (a confirmed valid save).

    This would also help us with people working for ages on something and accidentally closing it without saving and thus losing all their work. The snapshots could be cleared out daily/weekly as set by the user/group policy.

    This would provide users a place…

  10. While using the zoom feature should be avilable while recording audio/video.

    while recording your presentation in presentation move the zoom feature should be available to make the presentation interactive and captivate the audiences attention.

  11. add audio option please

    in the PowerPoint that comes installed to computers we have the option to add audio however in the Office 365 version that is online that seems to not be an option. Please add this function, considering I really need this option to create my educational videos for students. Thank You!

  12. 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.

  13. Add more varied color palletes

    PowerPoint needs color palletes with more colors so that users can clearly see the difference in graphs.

  14. Add new column to table without resizing existing columns

    When I add a column to a table, it resizes all existing columns to preserve the table width. This is frustrating as I often get columns just as I like them and then remember I need to add an additional column.

  15. Text box link between slides

    Link text boxes between slides, example: If there is a specific text box on slide 1 that i need to update constantly but that same text box is copied on slide 3 so instead of copy and paste each time it would be helpful if the was a way to link textboxes between slides. Similar to Excel when you link cells between sheets and all you have to do is update the master.

  17. picture as text color

    Currently PowerPoint cannot set a picture as text color (e.g. the picture fills the letter of a word). Apple Keynot can do that by choosing a picture as a text color.
