  3. I want to design projects for clients in Microsoft PowerPoint Experts website

    I use PowerPoint for all sorts of works of my own. From making presentations of contests to promotional videos. I think I have the capability to meet the clients need. I like to work with and without templates and insert images and gifs to make it colorful and attractive. I love to insert simple animations to make presentations trendy yet formal and also add the necessary transitions so, the client does not need to click multiple times to change slides and can give confident speech.
    I would really look forward for your reply.

  4. Stock Video inserts

    This MS feature was available but no longer - this option had a tremendous value in terms of time saved looking externally for stock video and the quality was high... please bring it back.

  8. reinstate the ability to save PPT's to HTML format

    I develop and deliver training solutions to students who often can not access anything other than the web. I do not want to convert my presentations to PDF as this loses operability and converting to HTML on a page by page basis via Word removes the links I rely upon so please reinstate HTML saving into later versions of PPT.

  9. Make it so that you can just play a video within powerpoint

    Example: I get to the last slide and it has video link. instead Powerpoint could find the video then play the video when you click a play button

  10. presenter view 2016 has a single preview of the next slide. I would like to be able to see all the slides down the bottom like 2010

    Bring back presenter view as in Powerpoint 2010. I use 2010 at Church, seeing more than the next slide allows me to see what the minister is going to say next and preview several upcoming slides so when he jumps ahead, I am not lost. 2010 powerpoint presenter allows me to use the bottom slider to go through all slides when I need it to go back or forward as needed in the presentation without jumping to the all slides screen

  11. When exporting slides to an image format that supports transparency, create an option to set slide backgrounds to transparent.

    I frequently use PowerPoint slides as overlays onto other media, and it's annoying that even when I export the slides as pictures, it includes the white background.

  12. Parallel display of on-screen presentation and speaker view on a large monitor for use in video presentations (for non-team sessions).

    Good day,

    I use PowerPoint several times a week during lectures and trainings on Teams, Zoom, Bluejeans and some more.

    Until now I had two 24" monitors on my PC, since 4 weeks I have a big one with 49".

    So far it worked very well with two monitors: on the first one I had the presentation, on the second one my important speaker view; I shared the first monitor in the video conference - perfect.

    But with a large monitor this does not work (in teams conditionally, see https://bit.ly/3u5kF8n), in all other programs unfortunately not.

    So it would…

  13. Publish PowerPoint presentations

    Allow publishing of ppt presentations so they can be accessed remotely without the presenter, like at a conference booth but online. I think this used to be possible with Office Mix but that is discontinued. This is an easy way to create a ppt website and would allow the creation of interactive audio, video or timed text presentations that can be linked to from a URL.

  14. Change default slide layout so that the title slide isnt there every time

    It's super annoying how I have to change title slide every single time I open powerpoint. I want the ability to create my own default slide layout every time. It's such a pain how the default title slide is imposed upon you as if it thinks it knows better, without any option to change it. It wouldn't be that much to ask, under the dropdown menu for Layouts in Storyboarding, just let people rearrange the tiles of the slide layout and the first one is the "default". That would be the most intelligent way to do it. At the very…

  15. Improved search and repace for PowerPoint

    In PowerPoint, could you please provide more search/replace capabilities. Similar to Excel could search and replace be restricted to selected slides, text boxes, etc. It's almost unusable as it exists because the replace is universal and most times I need to only replace a selection. Thanks you.

  16. Improvement of SPEAK funtion in PowerPoint

    SPEAK has been around for a long time but it's not that practical. You must select each text box in the Normal Presentation View and press SPEAK.

    Given that many of us are now doing virtual presentations, not all microphones, accents and vocies are equal - and we need to think about accessibilty options. I've had clients with speech problems and so listening to online presentations with poor mics and speech issues makes it impossilbe for them to be heard properly.

    Can we improve the SPEAK funtion to read from the PRESENATION SLIDESHOW in full - additional options (gender voices)…

  17. Enhance Reuse Slides for PowerPoint 365

    The Reuse Slides feature is really useful in light of its integration with OneDrive and SharePoint for 365, but the lack of the following features is incredibly frustrating and renders it rather unhelpful:


    1. Select All Slides

    2. Select Slides in a Section

    3. Select Multiple Slides

    Would love to see these features incorporated.

  18. Add powerpoint inside a powerpoint as an attachment

    In the current version of Microsoft Office Powerpoint, users has the ability to add hyperlink to attachment; but the downside of this was when it was transfer to another laptop, the hyperlinks will become useless because the files are imbedded in the original source of the file.

    I want to have an option to use hyperlinks and to save the actual files in the main powerpoint; just like when you add a video in the ppt, it will save in the actual file.

  20. Color emojis in PDFs!

    Hi,

    If I save my ppt's to pdf, emoji's loose their color and become black-and-white. Many users seem to have this issue.

    It's really annoying. I send these ppts to my customers and I need them to look as intended!

    BTW: mac version does not seem to have this issue.

    Best regards,
    Michael
