  3. Please, PLEASE fix Snap to Grid. It hasn't worked correctly in decades.

    Snap to grid is buggy. There are "phantom" grid points that make it possible to drop objects or sides/corners of objects between grid points, making the grid feature useless.

    After many years you finally fixed the longstanding roundoff-error bug that put grid points at the edges of slides in the wrong place, but now have introduced an even worse one. It's depressing that a function this basic and important won't get fixed unless dozens of people vote for it.

  4. "Live" Shapes in Presentation Mode

    The ability to sort or categorize shapes/objects within an active presentation would be extremely valuable for teachers when making interactive games in PPT because sorting involves specific early learning skills that cannot be substituted with other animations or actions.

    There are multiple issues with the imperfect workaround of having students drag and drop shapes/objects within the working PPT - such as the inability to have audio or animations complement the learning activity and, of course, the fact that the shapes are inadvertently deleted or resized frequently.

    This would have MANY educational applications.

  6. Easing across ALL animation. Not just the speed but the type of easing.

    The timing speed controls on SOME animation is poor. The fact that some animation has NO easing is pretty unforgivable.

    I would like to see the ability to choose the speed and type of ease based on Easing curves that are pretty standard in almost any type of software that uses motion. https://easings.net/en

    Without this, there are still LOTS of transitions and animations which I just don't use as they look so 'PowerPoint'.

  7. spell check

    Automatically run options "Spell Check" before saving a file like mandatory options
    I know "F7" is the shortcut.
    However, it would be great if there is any function
    Even though "Check spelling as you type" and "Check grammar with spelling" is set up (checked) in proofing,
    sometime, office misses miss-spelled words and wrong grammar.
    Therefore, users must run "Spell Check."
    That's why I am asking the way.
    Thank you!

  8. Return to Zoom - Point of Return

    I have found that if you have animations in a slide (say a simple "appear by 1st para" animation for several bullet points) and you have a zoom slide say after the third animation, with the "Return to Zoom: box ticked, ppt returns to h top of the animations in the slide (not to the third bullet point where the zoom occurred from). It would be very useful if the return can be to the excat point where the zoom occured from.

  9. Improve Suggested Templates

    Under "New", "Suggestions" - When we select a theme or design, please display all the slides that are included with the template, before we click on "create", so we can see what we have to work with.

  11. further development of the "Office Remote" app (or at least a "PowerPoint remote app)

    There is currently no better solution to control a PowerPoint presentation remotely using an Android smartphone via bluetooth like "Office Remote", so please continue to develop the "Office Remote function for Android and IOS!

  12. Embed videos from internal hosted video streaming platform

    As a university we have our own video streaming platform hosting teaching content, it is becoming vital to be able to embed content from these types of systems. Especially where YouTube, Vimeo and MS Stream are not suitable for this type of content. Systems used in universities are: Brightcove, Dacast, Echo360, Kaltura, Medial etc.

  13. Design Ideas to leverage corporate visual identity assets

    Design Ideas works much better than I dared hope but to be truly useful in a corporate setting it's missing a couple of productivity enhancing features:

    Like many companies we have an official corporate visual identity which includes a slide master, which the Design Ideas feature duly stays within. But we also have official icons, photos and colours. Right now Design Ideas picks icons which we have to replace to stay on brand and the same goes for the colours.

    An easy way to achieve this would be to allow the feature to be pointed at a small canon of…

  15. lock shape or text in the slide, to stop by mistake moving.

    the selection in the ppt is smart, but sometimes we move things not like to move it, so i suggest to add option in the drawing tools can make a shape or text box locked to move

  17. Screen recording continually gives the error message "an error occurred with screen recording. please try again"

    Screen recording continually gives the error message "an error occurred with screen recording. please try again." I have tried every troubleshooting step imaginable and even had a microsoft tech remote into my computer for two hours with no help.

  18. Notes Panel should be at right or allow to change position

    There is no reason to keep "Notes Panel" at slide bottom, nowdays almost everyone has a wide screen, the current position is uncomfortable for editing.
    This panel should be at right or allow to change position.

  19. Power Point notes section adding color

    Please add the feature where I can change font color in power point notes section. Adding the ability to change background color for words would be great as well. I've been using PP for years hoping each year that a new version is out this will be added only to be disappointed. Please, Please, Please!!!
