  3. Resize multiple line objects by dragging

    When I select multiple objects (using Ctrl or Shift), the click'n'drag resize behavior changes depending on the type of object. For example, multiple rectangles or boxes can be resized by clicking and dragging the handlebars. But multiple lines cannot. I like to think there's another UX type reason but I dont know what it is.

  4. the ruler zero should be adjustable

    the ruler zero should be adjustable. This would allow you to scale a drawing, and adjust the reference zero. Just make it a slider -- not that hard...

  5. Create Custom Gallery

    I will generally use the same five shapes and animations in all presentations, and would like these to be available in a custom gallery dropdown, so I spend less time searching for the shape in the large list of shapes. This would make it possible to create a "Lines" gallery, a "Simple Flowchart" gallery, and so on. Right-clicking a shape, transition or animation could include options "Add to CustomGalleryName Gallery" or "Add to New Custom Gallery..." in the context menu.

    This idea complements the two existing suggestions on "Custom company icon/shape/image/clipart/content library" and, to a degree, "Slide Library Management".

  6. Let elbow connectors be straight

    Shape positions may change after connecting them with an elbow connect. If these shapes are perfectly aligned, i.e. a straight line would be rotated by either 0 or 90 degrees, the elbow connector will have a slight dip in the middle. Please let these connectors align to be straight. The problem is particularly annoying when using the Morph transition and shapes will end up aligned, so the connector cannot simply be replaced by a straight line.

  7. Quick Access Toolbar icons arrangement options center align

    In Default the icons are arranged in Left hand side. But working on a document or a slide it is quite annoying to look at the very end of bar. So aligning the toolbar icons to center would be great for the accessibility

  9. An embedded video (e.g. Stream URL) does not play unless PowerPoint run as Administrator

    Allow a non-admin user to play a URL embedded video in a PowerPoint presentation.

    If I am running PowerPoint as a non-admin account (a standard account) and if it has an embedded URL video (e.g. a Stream video or a YouTube video), when I attempt to play the video (in either authoring or presenting mode) I get "VIDEO ERROR This video could not be started. Close this dialog to ignore the problem or click Restart to try again".

    Only if I open PowerPoint as an administrator can I work around this problem, but most users don't have the ability to…

  10. Caneta em apresentação

    Seria muito bom se houvesse a opção de mudar a espessura da caneta durante a apresentação do Power Point. Na verdade, as configurações de utilização da caneta durante a apresentação são muito limitadas.

    Deveríamos ter mais liberdade para configurar a caneta durante a apresentação.

  11. Imagem alta qualidade em "Todos os novos documentos"

    A opção para definir a resolução padrão de "Alta fidelidade" para todos os novos documentos cirados no Power Point não existe e está disponível apenas no Word. Como preparo muitos slides e uso o zoom durante a apresentação, a cada novo documento que crio tenho que ir nas configurações e definir o padrão para alta fidelidade, caso contrário, a qualidade das imagens caem muito.

    Seria interessante que pudesse fixar essa opção para todos os documentos futuros, como podemos fazer no Word.

  12. Want to change font size manually as odd number size, so highlight text then hit size, then want to try larger

    if I highlight a phrase, then go up to make it 13, and it goes to 13. Then I decide to go up to 15. I hit 15. Then I end up typing 15 as it is no longer "highlighted" after you do it once.

  13. Size multiple objects to size/resize.

    It would be great if we could select several objects and be able to match the width or height like in MS Access. i.e. drag and select several text boxes of different sizes and make the match the widest or tallest or whatever,
    We can do it with alignment, how about with size adjustments.

  17. What if there was a way to link the presentation with the notes? (Presenter view)

    In regular view, there could be numbers/letters in the slide where the creator wants them, with numbers down in the notes (maybe only shown during slide tab?).
    In presenter view, there would be arrows pointing to the correct notes. This way, the creator only has to link 1 note with a point on the slide, instead of writing everything in notes!

    NOTE: The audience wouldn't be able to see the numbers, or the arrows!

  18. Dynamic "Rabbit trail" feature for slide organizing/presenting

    Traditional PP slide organizing follows strict linear logic and allows for "hiding" slides that a User may or may not want to share, only retrievable by unhiding the slide in the straight series. Many times, however, slide content and presentations lends themselves to a need to explore tangential, important information a User may want to have immediate access to, depending on the evolution of meeting, live discussion, etc. I refer to these as "Rabbit trails". PP could be improved to allow creating slides that fit 'horizontal' logic, linking off (or taking a "rabbit trail") from a slide in the main…

  19. Select several "add animation" options at once

    I would love it if "add animations" pane could select multiple animations as one time, for example fade in, fade out, and emphasis off of a single cumulative dropdown menu without having to add one, open the pane again, add a second, open the pane again, add a third.
