  1. Enable Slide Sorter and Outline view in real-time editing

    WHEN
    collaborating on overall structure of a PowerPoint presentation

    WHAT
    It would be useful to have slide sorter view available to rearrange slides and outline view to create a rough outline.

    Both seem to be disabled in real-time editing mode.

    • Record view--make it like presenter view AGAIN

      Presenter view and record view looked exactly the same until this recent update. Please change record view BACK to look like presenter view. What was just done was not an improvement; it was a severe loss of functionality. You had it perfect before--please change it back to what worked! I understand you're adding this "pens" function, but there's no reason you couldn't integrate it with the old way, or add the record screen to mimic adjustability to notes function (for a larger notes screen) and add the new pens function. I am desperate to get this to work again soon…

      • Enable re-ordering animation in pane for easy transitions LTR to RTL

        When I design in a Right to Left language and then want to use the same template for Left to Right - I would like to have an easy way to change the animation accordingly.
        Now I need to manually drag them from top to bottom.

        • Animation Ideas - Similar to the new 'Design Ideas' feature

          Similar to the Design Ideas feature, I'd like the system to suggest various animations based on the contents of the slide. This could really cut out a lot of time spent on putting together PowerPoint presentations.

              • Allow presenter to quickly switch between PP &a programs using Alt+Tab when presenter view is switched on

                I love presenter view but as a systems trainer I find it so limiting that I can't use my standard Alt+Tab keyboard shortcut to quickly switch back and forth between my slide set (in presenter view, notes visible to only me etc) and the program I'm demoing to users (if I'm duplicating my screen to a monitor for the presentation or if I'm presenting on Skype for Business for example).

                  • Print one slide per page handout with lines for writing notes

                    When printing handouts one slide per page, it would be nice if the slide could be placed at the top of the page, and lines be placed at the bottom of the page so students can make notes.
                    We print to pdf, so we are not destroying many forests. :)

                    • Make setting the default slide size much easier

                      Almost all of my work in PowerPoint is done on letter size paper (either the portrait or landscape orientation). Setting a default slide size (e.g., "letter paper - 8.5 x 11.0 inches) should be a one click process and not the convoluted thing which it is now.

                        • allow embedding Exchange calendars in PowerPoint presentations

                          It would be very useful to allow embedding an Exchange calendar in PowerPoint presentations that always shows the real time schedule. It should be configurable as follows:
                          - Monthly / Weekly (full or work week) / Daily
                          - in case of weekly and daily: start and end time

                                      • Eye drop colour picker option when in 'create new theme colours' dialogue box.

                                        When you are in the main colour theme dialogue, unlike when formatting colours on slides, there is no eye-drop function. This means having to note down RGB numbers (or use a third party software) to then type in... laborious... tedious... and the function exists elsewhere in PowerPoint... but not in this one dialogue area... =(

                                          Vimeo has a lot of video content. I'd love the ability to embed those videos into PPT in the same way You Tube videos can be uploaded.
