  1. Disable Powerpoint Pen Pressure Sensitivity

    This is more of a bug than a feature request, but I was directed here by Microsoft support. At some point an update came out that enabled pen pressure sensitivity across all of their applications. With OneNote there are two ways that you can disable it. you can do in the gui via options, advanced and you uncheck "Use pen pressure sensitivity" or via the registry with the reg key penpressure.

    Unfortunately, the option to disable it in powerpoint does not show up in the gui and adding the same reg key, does nothing in powerpoint.

    In my building, our…

      • Flashing font or fill colour

        What not add an option to have a "flashing" effect for fonts, shapes or fill colours. I've often wanted to make a cell, shape or word "pop" out of screen easily. You can do with macros but seems to be it would be a easy add. You could do this simply in the days of the Commodore64 ;-)

          • BUG: Animations disappear when editing equations

            When you edit an equation in a slide with animations to let the equations appear one by one, then all animations disappear. So in a slide with a lot of equations and animations, every edit means redefining all animations...

            • Import PPTX objects as slices in Photoshop CC

              Simple idea that Photoshop should identify all objects, graphics and assets in a slide under different layers automatically.

              • make design ideas available in slide master

                I have a slide and used design ideas to format. It looks great however when I created the next slide a similar format was not presented.

                Where a side design has been created for 1 slide have the ability to choose that design style again from the design ideas section. Or use the same design ideas again as first choice.

                Love the design ideas section just cruising that can't get consistent results within the 1 slide pack.

                        • Terminology as to "document," and "page," you need to define what they mean!

                          You also need to understand what the Boolean term means, where you don't always make it clear.

                          • Smarter "Group Objects" for vertically/horizontally aligned objects

                            I often have objects arranged as if in a matrix. (Imagine a 5X5 array of logos). When editing the slide, I often want to make the array wider or taller without changing the proportions of the objects. The way I do this currently is tedious:
                            - Individually group 'rows' --> adjust top/bottom row --> Distribute --> Ungroup
                            - Individually group 'columns' --> adjust left/right column --> Distribute --> Ungroup

                            This happens a lot. It would be very useful, when selecting a matrix like array of objects, to have the option to Group Rows or Group Columns or Switch Row/Column Grouping.

                                Standard Normal Distribution is used in Statistics & Probability, it needs z-score, mean, and standard deviation... also the area under a normal curve and whatnots... yes, it needs a lot of Math but we take care of putting the values. It may need a frequency and/or probability distribution table. ... what more... sample means and whatnots.

Sure one can the Animation Pane button to the Quick Access Toolbar, but then you still need to hit a button every time you want to see the Animation Pane. I'm sure I'm not the only person who wants to see the Animation Pane by default whenever a presentation is opened. It would be nice to add a setting that…

                                    When I copy sparklines from Excel and Paste Special into an image placeholder as a Picture, the sparklines appear pixelated. When I print that slide, the sparklines have a rectangular black background (instead of transparent) that extends to the limits of the cells in Excel.

                                      • Zoom effect

                                        Hi office dev team,
                                        First I want to give you an applause for adding zoom to powerpoint, so we are not far away behind prezi users. I got a few suggestion for zoom feature.
                                        1. Please add the ability to hide the text (especially texts that will appear later via animation) from the zoom slide picture. I can make it by changing the picture, but it would be nice if I can hide it by a click
                                        2. Please add the ability to crop zoom picture, so I can make it square instead of rectangular without compromising the whole picture …
