  1. Copy paste formatting of animations

    Example: If I add "random bars" with specific timings and after animation effects.... and later on add another element to the slide where I want those actions to occur... today I have to re-create it. If I could copy paste animation formatting, it would solve it.

      • Define outline colour only for arrow end/begin

        Sometimes it is useful to have an outline only for arrow begin / end, specifically in callouts, when we want to highlight that element. the only possibility is to add a round shape below the arrow, which is not practical.

        • Rotate text 180 degrees inside shapes

          There are shapes, such as certain rectangles, in which it would be useful to allow the rotation of text to 180 degrees. There are some workarounds involving the 3-d rotation text effects the results are poor.

              Make videos instantly loop, since they now flash black a split second before restarting (bad for epilepsy)

              I have videos in my slides and configured them to start automatically and "Loop until Stopped". They do however fade to black a split second before they restart, and this can become an issue if anyone in your audience has epilepsy or otherwise triggered by such light stimuli. Btw, "Fade Duration" is at 0.

                  • Make slide thumbnails accessible through Office.js PowerPoint API

                    I'm assuming that the PowerPoint API for Office.js will be released eventually; if and when that happens, would it be possible to make the thumbnails rendered by the application on each slide's notes page accessible as images?

                      • Ortho Camera View for 3D files

                        It would be very powerful for the inserted 3D files to have Orthographic camera option so that we can view the models as true isometric. This would give us the very powerful capability to animate with multiple 3D objects at once.

                        • Negative text color

                          Text boxes sometimes have contrasted backround (image, pattern, ...). In that case the choice of the text color tricky if we want it to be readable at any point of the text box. A solution could be to propose a new option for the text color: the negative of the background. Therefore each pixel of the text would have the negative color of the underlying background pixel.

                          • Spelling errors within words after first letter

                            I am on Office 365, and often in presentations, PowerPoint thinks there are spelling errors on words after the first letter.

                            For example I might have the word 'Deleted' in a presentation and it will underline 'eleted' as a spelling error ignoring the D. I've never seen this in previous versions of the software and appears to be a bug.

                                • Import Outline: Give the importer some OPTIONS like what level of the outline makes a new slide, and what happens above and below that level

                                  Import Outline: Give the importer some OPTIONS
                                  * What level of outline makes a new slide,
                                  * What happens above that level (sections? Section header slides?)
                                  * What happens below that level - bullet points? Indentation?
                                  * Optionally transfer plain text into the Notes section.
                                  Of course while configuring the options it would be good to see a preview that can be scrolled thru a bit.

                                    • Create object mapping between two presentations

                                      Often I have a presentation from one source that needs to be copied to our own templates before use. Add a wizard that allows you to map objects from the old presentation to the current one. Not simply a copy from here to there but rather a way to say object 1 from this slide should copy into object 12 on the new slide.

                                      • Add Handwriting and Morph in Animation

                                        The handwriting animation is very attractive and helpful technique to engage the audience, similar to that of sparkol https://www.sparkol.com
                                        The morph (although it seems like an animation) is a transition effect and apply on the slide, why not add it as an animation effect that can be applied to anything in the slide?
