    • It would be nice if powerpoint doesn't destroy your work when you change location and log at another location.

      Today I logged in with my personal laptop via the TUDelft internet. I worked a day long on a very important presentation and saved it on my onedrive. Back home I log in on my personal internet and suddenly it goes back to a previous version, saved the day before and deletes or ignores all the changes of a hard days work and of course also autosaves this old version as the new version. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE. On top of that powerpoint is unable to deliver the "previous" versions, saved when working at TUDelft. This was after a recent…

        • add support for changing oldstyle/lining numerals

          Word allows changing of font numeral styles from lining to oldstyle and back. This is very important to style tables of numbers properly when using fonts such as Corbel.

          • Option to prevent autocorrection of lower case Greek letters

            I create science-based presentations that frequently use lower-case Greek letters as symbols. If they are the first thing in a text-box they are auto-corrected to capitals. I would like an option to prevent this autocorrection for Greek letters only (i.e.: maintain autocorrection of other lower case letters at the start of sentences).

            • Shift-F3 (toggle case) cursor placement error

              Let's say you're in the middle of a fully-lowercased word, meaning the text tool/mouse cursor is pulsing anywhere within a word longer than 3 characters. You hit Shift-F3 to toggle the case. Great.

              The cursor then appears at the BEGINNING of the word - yet it's not really at the beginning because if then hit the right arrow key and move one character to the right, the cursor appears where it ought to be.

              Give it a try.

              It's particularly annoying and deceiving if you are then trying to highlight that word using the Shift and arrow keys to select…

              • Preserve underline text formatting in Morph transitions

                The Morph transition is great (thank you!), but there's a nit: underline text formatting disappears during the transition.

                My use case: I'm using PowerPoint to create videos that include IBM 3270 terminal screen captures. The captures are "rich text": they include entry fields that are represented using underline formatting, not just underscore characters (an important point, because the entry fields might contain text). In a single text box in PowerPoint, I concatenate multiple 24-row terminal screen captures. The text box is much taller than a single slide. I duplicate the slide with the text box. On the duplicate slide, I…

                • Current viewing slides is not oblivious to see in black office theme

                  In the normal view of PowerPoint, the current viewing slide is highlighted with orange border to differentiate from other slides. However, it is not obvious to see the border in the black office theme. It makes me a bit hard to identify the current viewing slide from the left panel.

                  Is it possible to make the highlighted status more obvious in black office theme? For example, how about changing the color of slide number into orange as well? Alternatively, add a orange background with maybe 30% of transparency at the back of that current viewing slide to highlight the status.

                    • Issue with images for combi charts

                      I have noticed an issue with the image for "secondary vertical" axis title in combi charts, in that the image used is of a horizontal axis title, not a vertical one. I have reported this online but was told to post here as well (case number 1415727543). The issue occurs in Office 2013 and 2016.

                        There is the option to print 9 slides per page. Please give the option to print 9 slide tiles per page WITH NOTES appearing underneath the slide tiles. This would be so nice for preparing for presentations and for use during presentations.

                                When export --> Create Handouts --> Blank lines next to slides, the first image (only) is inline with text in the table. All others are Square wrap.

                                We need an option to set images to wrap text SQUARE in the exported table, or that needs to be the default.
                                At very least, it should be consistent, and USABLE -- not require selection and change of every image one at a time.

                                      Create Religious themes for PP as there are so many other options for the various themes that exist. Why no religious themes for use when making religious PP presentations?

                                        • Make PowerPoint more resilient against network issues

                                          I'm often faced with bad connectivity due to bad wifi or being on mobile networks.

                                          Bad network together with PowerPoint and files stored in OneDrive / OneDrive for business means that PowerPoint very often lags, is unresponsive or simply crashes.

                                          I'm working locally, on local files. I don't care that they are synced via OneDrive to the cloud. Make PowerPoint not care about the syncing mechanism and whether the connection was just lost. Work locally.
