  1. Terrible FIND SEARCH (control F) feature in PowerPoint.

    I know there are other 2-3 threads about this in this forum, but MS simply abandoned them! (and did not reply or solved the question), so I am opening a new one, regardless. PowerPoint's search box (control find) brings the previously-searched term, and the new term is added to the beginning of the word, creating a bizarre word, rendering the search useless. Selecting the entire word (control A) right after ControlF does not help, as the autofill brings other terms, and if your search is shorter than the one you've already searched, you need to hit DEL at the end…

      • Able to access presenter view while wirelessly projecting

        Hi, We now have wireless access to our projectors in meeting rooms, but we can't access presenter view when presenting this way. It would be great to have access to presenter view when wirelessly projecting

            • import outline from OneNote

              PowerPoint currently supports the ability to import from a word outline. It should also support the ability to import from a OneNote outline in a similar manner

                      • Make short video clips loop endlessly and smoothly again

                        Since the introduction of PPT 2010 there are constantly problems with video clips. In particular very short video clips such as used from medical ultrasound of the heart (typicall 1-2 seconds long) do not reliably show up in an endless loop. The loops often stops after 2-3 cycles or the video stutters. These problems occur from time to time, then are improved after an update, but with the next update they appear again. Also, there are problems with different codecs, even standard codecs often do not run well.
                        These video problems have forced many medical colleagues who regularly give presentation…

                        • Allow a single line text box in master slide without having to delete 5 lines.

                          Currently it is so time consuming to add a sub headline or sub title in Slide Master. Have to use a content or text placeholder and delete extra lines to achieve this.

                          • Allow option to increase MP4 Video quality (data rate) when exporting. If I export as WMV format the data rate is twice MP4 data rate.

                            The MP4 format is widely supported but the data rate is so low that sometimes the video quality breaks up. I have tested with all resolutions up to 4K with the same result. WMV format gives a much better quality video but then I have to convert WMV files to MP4 with a third party converter.

                                • Choose which display (presentation & presenter view) goes to which monitor/output

                                  In professional AV, we need to be able to plug two video signal outputs into a mac or pc and feed one of these with the actual presentation and the other one with the 'Presenter View'.
                                  Please make this possible!
                                  On the laptop display it would be ideal if you could make live changes to the presentation while its running as well :)

                                      • Shortcut for Pan

                                        Need a short cut key for panning just like for zoom. Hold down key, enables pan hand, left click grabs slide, and you can pan around.

                                        Why has this never been incorporated?
