  1. Export to Video with embedded videos included.

    Currently, Powerpoint does not play embedded videos in the exported video file. Only the audio gets played. This feature needs to be updated so that both video and audio files embedded in the powerpoint presentation can be viewed in the exported video.

  4. Preserve uri (http) links when saving in svg format

    The recently added SVG support in PowerPoint is a wonderful addition, but currently any links (http:// style or other URI) that are associated with an object are lost when a slide is saved in .scv format. The obligitary <svg xmlns:xlink=“http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"> attribute is included, but no <a xlink:href="http://xxxxxxxx"> </a> attributes are saved.

    Please include the appropriate <a xlink:href="http://xxxxxxxx"> </a> attributes in .svg files when saving in .svg format

  5. Powerpoint - set color blending mode to 'multiply'

    Dear PowerPoint mods

    I think you underrate PPT as a design tool. It's bloody good.

    One thing that would take it to the next level though is if you'd implement 'multiply' as a color blending mode.

    This would be truly amazing. You've already got a ton of other powerful design features like boolean operations, EMF file integration etc etc, but what you're missing is 'multiply'.

    This would change lots of designers lives who use PPT on the reg.

    Sincerely

    Ben

  7. Make Comments searchable

    There should be a way to search Comments. Currently, I can use the "Find" feature to search for text within the presentation, but there is no way to search through text in the "Comments" section. It would be nice to have a search bar in the "Comments" menu so if there are 100 comments and someone tagged me in a few of them, I can easily jump to those comments by searching for my name. This should be a separate search bar though - I don't want "Comment" text coming back as a result of the regular "Find" feature.

  8. Flip/switch input fields position horizontal/vertical

    I often use PowerPoint to position flow chart elements. In the "Format Form" (right menu), I enter (1) the height (y axis), (2) the height (x axis), and then (3) the horizontal position (x axis) and (4) the vertical position (y axis). However, "my mind" always assumes that the size and position lists are in logical order, i.e., input field (1) belongs to (3), and (2) belongs to (4) - first the y axis, then the x axis. Now (1) belongs to (4) and (2) belongs to (3) due to alphabetical order, which is sometimes disturbing.

  10. Video background

    I want to remove the green background of my video in PowerPoint but I can't do this. please add this feature to remove the video background.
    Second thing is that whenever I insert a video with a white background. its background turns to grey when I start recording my presentation. it means that a filter or any effect on the video is applied automatically. and it is irritating me. please fix this problem

  11. Logo animation during my presentation

    I wanted to let my logo animate automatically in the whole presentation after every 20 seconds. But I didn't found any option to do this. Later on I animated my logo after every 5 text animations by clicking on "Add animation" . But here I'm having a problem with my PowerPoint. Whenever I give an object an animation and set it to "Start with previous" it automatically animates after previous animation. But if I accidentally, click Next during it's animation, it doesn't animate smoothly. That is, it quickly gets to his position. I want an option in PowerPoint which will…

  13. Smooth and one audio recording for all slides

    3) The audio recording on all slides must be smooth without any interruption among them. Only one smooth audio should be recorded rather than multiply audios for multiple slides .

  14. play previous animations smoothly even if we switch to next animation

    If we click to switch to the next animation i.e. text animation, the previous one should play fully and end smoothly not abruptly.

  15. Zoom Move to one slide part.

    Slide zoom feature is also amazing but Zoom to a specific part of one slide should be available with a smooth moving animation, just like the Camtasia Zoom & Pan system.

  16. Exclude Element from Design Ideas

    Would be good to be able, say right-click to exclude an element from Design Ideas (ie. excluded/deselected element are manual design) - this could be useful where there are annotations for example, also can allow Design Ideas to concentrate on the main elements (and avoid the 2 many elements problem prohibition Design Ideas from working).

  18. Add time for each slide

    Export to Excel all the slides and then able to add time for each slide. This would then be viewable in the presenter view.

    So you can have a 20 min for presentation and can see the time remaining if you are running fast or slow.
