    • Unbreakable dash/hyphen/space

      Hello!

      I think there are many users who could benefit from these special characters which are easily available in Word. I know there are some alphanumeric short-cut codes to insert unbreakable characters in PowerPoint, but I would prefer the easier "Ctrl-Shift-Space" (etc.) approach.

      Furthermore, I often use the syntax: word+unbreakable space+unbreakable hyphen+unbreakable space+word which I absolutely can't manage to make it work in PowerPoint.

              • Please add Read Aloud

                Please add Read Aloud options in PowerPoint like in Word. And please have the option for the user to use it even when in full screen presentation. And to make sure that it reads continuously from the selected slide to the last. Or which ever slide the user chooses.

                • Linking to another PowerPoint slide while in presenter view should also show that slide in presenter view.

                  Currently, it does not, and thus, one can't see speaker notes or next animation.

                    • Please fix transition from Video to next slide

                      When transitioning from video to next slide the video reverts back to the beginning of the video before the transition. The transition should start where video ended not revert back to start of video. Please help.

                          There is no option for saving preview picture for all powerpoint presentations like word does.
                          I want to have the default icon for powerpoint.

                          • Loop a single slide

                            I'd like to enable looping for a single slide inside the presentation. It could work by choosing how many times that slide should repeat, or skip it by pressing any key twice...

                            • Bullet in presentation mode

                              The bullet will mark of how much clicks are left before it is proceeded into next page. it would be really helpful especially when using the transition effect, and to avoid cases such as accidentally reveal the next page in presentation when it is not the right time.

                                  I'd like to see the visual reorder objects (like the Mac version of PowerPoint has) on the Windows version. The visual is so much easier to understand and reordering layers visually is really nice.

                                    • Text to Voice

                                      To use PPT effectively to produce CBT, PPT needs a text-to-voice function that uses a pleasant synthetic voice that reads the notes for each applicable slide. The high points should be shown on the slide, but the voice will be reading a script that is invisible to the users, but shown on the slide handouts.

                                        When a document is stored in Teams, any chat history related to the file is displayed next to it when working on the file within the Teams application. Please add the same chat history window in PowerPoint online and PowerPoint desktop. It's a useful feature when collaborating on a file!

                                        • Move the new comment button in the latest update!

                                          In the latest update, the 'New Comment' button has been added to the bottom of the right click menu - please move it anywhere else in that list! As someone who works within the software daily, the bottom option in that list has always been 'Format ...' and it's very frustrating accidently adding new comments all over my presentations.

                                          Many thanks!
