  1. Real-time timer

    Almost all my presentations have a preset time slot. It would make sense to integrate a small real-time timer/counter running in a corner on all slides of a presentation (except the frontsheet). This is however not available in PPT.

    • Get someone with a knowledge of history to create/edit the captions! 4, 12, 25 and 32 all have major errors!

      4. This was not the first flight. Photo shows a glider in 1911. Glider flights began pre-1900. The Wrights first powered flight was 1903. The 1911 photo is merely the longest glider flight as at that date.
      12. That's not a Rolls
      25. Siam (Thailand) has never been a colony, and had no British Royal family involvement
      32 Rear gunner of WW2, not WW1.
      Great photos though!

      • Picture Borders Causes Blur.

        I recetly noticed that when I apply a picture border to an image, it causes it to blurr. My best example is a very sharp headshot of a person, when altered with 'Simple Frame, White', becomes less clear and significantly blury. Can someone please bring this to the attention of the developers?

        • Group animation loop and custom transition

          Since many years I'm searching for new features about animations and transition.

          1) Group Animation Loop

          Currently, we can make an animation looping until the slide's end for a component. But we can't do it if there is several animations on the component.
          For exemple, I want an arrow to fade in, then rotate, and fade out. If I loop all animations, they will do it in the same time (meaning rotate while fade in/out). We could, also, make animation loop on several component at the same time. For exemple, Arrow 1 fade in, then Arrow 2 fade In, then…

            • Replace with same size and position

              When updating pictures, I currently have to record in the notes section the size and position of the position so that when I replace it, it can appear in the same place and any overlay objects are aligned properly (like an arrow or a callout). I also need to put the new object to the back.

              I would like a copy option that let's copy the size and position of a selected object and (ideally) also puts the new object in the background.

              So you would:
              1) select old object
              2) right click paste and select "replace selected object with…

                      • Windows open off screen

                        This is for all MS Office applications. Why do applications open in Windows that are nearly off the screen? They were not closed that way. Shouldn't they open a little smarter? Max, min or as a window doesn't matter, but they shouldn't be way off the screen.

                          • Quick keys for the typography

                            I would cry with happiness if there were simple quick keys (similar to Adobe InDesign) to allow you to quickly adjust the spacing between letters and vertical space. Pretty please!
