  1. Internet

    To download Online Powerpoints faster.
    I notice that Powerpoint uses only 0.5MBps to download PPTOnline from its Application.
    Note: my internet is way above 50mbps. And doesnt take time to download the same ppt via browser.

  2. The comment section text font size is MASSIVE, only 9 words fit on one line, please make it adjustable

    The comment section text font size is MASSIVE, only 9 words fit on one line (1024*768), please make font size or scaling in comment section adjustable. Not everyone has a QHD+ screen....
    This was never a problem before.

  4. Double click the space under a slide to add a new slide.

    Either the open space beneath the last slide, or on the orange bar underneath a slide.

  5. Ability to reorder columns

    When creating tables, I often decide to reorder the columns. Today, I have to insert a new column, copy all the content, then delete the old column. What if I could just select the column and say "shift right" or "shift left" (like "insert right" or "insert left") and it would reorder the columns for me? That would make it a lot easier. Thanks.

  6. Spelling error in software

    There is a spelling error in the 2013 version. See Home tab > Layout > Custom Design > "Completley blank". That is not the spelling of 'Completely'. Please fix :)

  7. search box in file/open

    I would like to have a search bar when doing the File/Open command. Now I have to go folder by folder. Instead, do a Cortana search, or Google or Bing or whatever - as long as I can just fill in (part of ) the name of my file and go.

  8. Motion paths need measurements and constraints

    There should be a modfier key to constrain the shape of motion paths. Currently if you insert a "Circle" motion path, you actually get an oval the same aspect ratio as the slide. At the same time, the motion relative to the path is set to be constant along the oval. If you stretch the oval back to a circle, the object on the path speeds up and slows down instead of moving at a constant rate. If you could hold down the a modifier key and get a perfect circle, all this hassle would be avoided. We also need…

  9. Object Alignment on Slides

    Need to be able to position objects from Upper Right Corner. Currently, only options are Upper Left and Center. For right-justified Title boxes, the existing choices obviously won't work.

  10. Working with chart data labels while the screen is maximized

    I have a lot of data on a slide and for working to re-size or re-set the charts data labels, I have to Zoom the slide (because the font is really small due to the lot of data). However, when I hold the data labels which are towards the right or left ends of the slide with my Mouse Pointer, the Chart moves towards the right or left and recenters automatically. So, every time I have to go back and scroll to my data label, grab it with the mouse and move or re-size it. It is very time-consuming and…

  11. Allow 'popping out' of slides.

    For instance, I have a deck that I'm working on and I want to drag one of the slides out (pop out) to one of my screens and continue to work on the presentation (keep the slide intact but allow it to pop out). Alternatively, if I want to just send just one slide of a larger deck to someone, enable it to pop out of the deck to save quicker than deleting the other slides, resaving it, etc....

  12. add special character above the text when editing equation in Powerpoint 2016

    When I used PPT 2007, I could add special character whatever I want right above the text using equation editor 3.0.
    (e.g. special character like circle dot.)
    But with PPT 2016, I can't do this with the function in the ribbon menu. (I know I can do it with adding object of equation editor 3.0)
    The only characters that I can choose are limited to 10 in the "accent" ribbon menu.
    So my suggestion is to add additional "accent" ribbon menu which enables to add any special character right above the text.

  15. Make Presentation window easier to share on Meeting programs (ex WebEx, GoToMeeting, etc)

    A frequent issue I see in online meetings is when the presenter has issues picking the correct Presentation window from their Meeting program (ex WebEx, GoToMeeting, etc). Powerpoint doesn't always make it clear which application window is presentation window when they are choosing to share which app window. Often, I'll see presenters give up and just use the editing window (which shows their notes and upcoming slides), which isn't ideal and often wastes meeting minutes.

    Request: could we label the presentation window a bit better to show which one should be shared? This goes for both the Mac and Windows…

  17. Sugestion for PowerPoint Status Bar

    When there is text in multiple languages, the Language section on the Status Bar disappears. It would be useful if it said something like "Multiple Languages," instead of disappearing, so that the user can change the language of the selected text by clicking on it instead of having to navigate to Review -> Language.

    Make power point not ruin slides when changing from 4:3 to 16:9 - Why are you resizing my backgrounds and images?

    Why can't the images be left alone!

  20. Transitions: footers from Slide Master

    Some Transitions (like Cube) don't rotate the footer from the slide master as a part of the slide, it just appears.
