  1. Make "ZOOM to SLIDE" feature available/functional for Recording Mode (Narration).

    The Zoom to Slide feature is a great feature for live presentations, however, it does not work when trying to record a presentation.

  3. Add option to re-open all previously open PowerPoint documents the next time PowerPoint is started.

    PowerPoint could really use an option (probably under "Start up Options") to automatically re-open all previously-open PowerPoint files the next time PowerPoint is started back up after all active PowerPoint files are closed (whether that happens via the "Close all windows" option or system reboot, shutdown, or crash). This would be the PowerPoint equivalent of the option of most web browsers to save all open tabs when the browser is closed and re-open them the next time it is launched. As a user who typically keeps multiple PowerPoint files open at once, it's a huge pain in the neck to…

  7. in the name of god

    I think its much better UI that when you drag and hold a category in order to move it between other sections, those other sections in name get bigger and BOLD for users to see them.

  8. Connectors with Kinks

    I recently learned that the kink in ppt's connectors can be removed by editing the shape properties and setting the "Height" to 0. Can this be the default setting for connectors so that lines are kinkless to begin with? Unfortunately, the present work around is cumbersome (some would argue absurdly so) and moving any connected shapes around resets the Height to non-zero so the kink returns.

  11. Get rid of the animation painter

    Reinstate the "copy slide" function where you could copy the formatting in a slide only or make it obvious where this function is because the animation painter is an incredibly irritating waste of time

  12. Animation needs to look refined when exporting a video

    Hi, Powerpoint 2019 and 365 video animation has problems when I export the video, the animation glitching in the final video when export in 4K, Specific animations are (Entrance > Fly-In, Emphasis > Grow/Shrink, Motion Path > Line.

    it works fine but with 1080p the frame rate and animations look slightly unpolished. I have Windows PC for Graphic/Video production, it can manage heavy graphic and video acceleration but i am not sure why this problem happens.

  13. Doubleclick to create a new blank slide

    In the left-hand pane, Doubleclick in the space below the last slide to create a new blank slide. Even better, have a tiny icon/bar that creates a new slide.

  14. 希望ppt能添加类似 情节提要 存储形状模块的插件

    情节提要插件不能进行分区,不方便管理,最好能同步与OneDrive。这样下次使用更方便。

  15. A Slider for Zoom

    Every time I have to select a listed percentage or type a percentage zoom, it annoys me. It would be so much easier and intuitive to be able to use a slider to adjust the zoom. The actual zoom percent is not important. What's important is to adjust to a size that looks right - the Powerpoint slide should resize as you adjust the slider. !!

  19. Allow changes to stubborn template in PowerPoint

    I'm having this particular problem where I'm trying to copy all the content from one presentation to another I have used all possible ways of doing this without copying the layout of the original presentation. However, this is getting very difficult as it is always copying the layout of the original presentation to the new presentation even with trying all recommendations that had I have been reading on PowerPoint support.
    Copy and paste your slides
    Reuse (import) slides from another presentation
    Copy and paste a slide master from one presentation to another
    None of these work, I think the best…

  20. The "notes" field is a tiny, unusable piece of garbage in the presenter view.

    Roll back the design to the previous version, so that people can at least use two monitors to see their notes! Do you know how many millions of teachers all over the world now need to do voice-over PowerPoint lectures, because of Covid, and PowerPoint has made that task ten times more difficult? Now I have to print up notes on actual paper, like a cave man!
