  2. Keep Sideboxes 'Sticky' from Slide to Slide

    I find myself collating lots of others' presentations into one cohesive-looking whole, which means I have to adjust the positions of a lot of text boxes, pictures, etc., from slide to slide.

    I right-click on an object, select "Size and Position", and the "FORMAT SHAPE" task pane appears on my right. I make the adjustment on my object, and go to the next slide.

    The Format Shape task pane is still there, but it's reverted back to the "Fill" menu. So I have to click "Size and Properties" again, and frequently have to click the dropdown again.

    It seems to…

  3. 'Present' to Skype/Teams/Zoom

    When running a teleconference, it would be great if I could share my presentation in presenter view - treating the Web like an external projector. I know with Zoom I can select which window gets shared, but it's not foolproof.

  5. Add presenter tools to presenter setting "Browsed by individual"

    When setting up a presentation as "Browsed by Individual" - the presentation window does not provide any presenter tools such as highlighting, laser pointer etc." however, these tools would be very helpful when presenting in windowed mode instead of pointing, also if this is not a full screen presentation.

  7. NO INTERNET MEANS I CANNOT USE OFFICE 365. I OFTEN WORK AWAY FROM THE INTERNET

    I opened a powerpoint file when not connected to the internet. I got the message that it could not verify my office 365 account and so reduced my features. I AM OFTEN NOT NEAR INTERNET. I NEED TO USE ALL FEATURES. How do I overcome this serious problem? The internet is not available where I often work. THIS IS SERIOUS

  8. Presenter screen available as one of the view options

    The presenter screen is awesome especially when you use notes as a script but sometimes it would be nice to have the presenter screen on one screen and be able to work LIVE in the second screen (for example when teaching someone how to use a specific program). It would be amazing if the presenter screen was actually an option under the View ribbon so you can use it this way instead of running the show.

  10. Use font style like in Word (Heading 1, Title, quote etc.)

    Use font style like in Word (Heading 1, Title, quote) to easily change formatting in whole presentation. Right now formatting options are very limited and changing fonts, color, size in Master slides doesn't affect all desired text fields most of the time.

  13. To group slides in slide sorter and navigate them with parent slide. And to enable a lock system that locks particular element in a slide

    Hi Team,

    I am a design professional working with Microsoft Powerpoint in reputed firm for more than 5 years now.
    This software has helped me learn desiging and story telling through slides.
    This email is regarding some suggestions I would like to see in Powerpoint.
    In slide sorter view, if we could select certain slides and be able to group them with a parent slide/every slide may act as a member where we could move them around freely. Creating section might do but often we need to navigate slides from here and there to a certain place.
    In the slide,…

  14. Next Slide in Presenter View can be placed below the Current Slide so that Notes Area will be bigger.

    I need a bigger Notes Area so I can use bigger fonts in the Notes Area. As such I can read them from about 1-1.5 meter and I won't frequently need to reach out to the laptop to scroll down.

  15. set language presentation

    Spelling language in PowerPoint should always follow the language selected by Windows. Using Windows key + Space I can change language easily. OneNote does this in an excellent way.

  16. Combine the Subtitles with Record Slideshow Video's for Playback

    When using the Record Slideshow tool and having your camera record you talking over each slide(s), it would be amazing if the Subtitles feature found in the Slideshow ribbon, automatically captured the captions and provided them during playback.

    "Create an animated GIF" option in File > Export should also be there in Office 365 ProPlus version. Any chance we can see that soon?

  18. Show Notes with the Record Slide Show feature

    Currently, when using the Record Slide Show feature in the Slide Show tab of PowerPoint, there's no way to show the presenter Notes. Please add the option to show presenter Notes when Recording a Slide Show. Thank you.
