  1. Section title in header and footer

    Allow adding section title in the header/footer. Even better, there should be some kind of automate text syntax. For example, <section title>, etc.

    • Templates for Instagram

      When I don't have access to Photoshop, I have been using PowerPoint to create my Instagram posts.

      Maybe help by having templates or add-ons for social media posts

      • Continuous Rotation or other Animations for 3d Objects

        How amazing would it be to be able to add simple key frames to the animation of 3d Objects. If this is too complicated, being able to simply set an object to rotate would be amazing. Morph is really cool, but some simple animations for 3D objects would be soooo good.

          • Have the option of setting a video as a background.

            When you are in the "Format Options" pane, go to the background options. In addition to the current options, add video backgrounds. If possible, give the option for the video to continue across slides but not on the foreground.

            • Anchor Features on Background

              When making a poster, for example, I put the blocks where the content should be, but when manipulating the contents the blocks also moves. It would be nice if I could just anchor some features so they don't move. (a little anchor button on the side, or together with the position (if we can lock the aspect ration, why not lock the position?))

                • Include a "keep source formatting & aspect" ratio button in Powerpoint so 16:9 and 4:3 presentations can run in 1 slide deck

                  urrently showing several presentations in a meeting you have to either keep the presentations separate or change the aspect ratio, Keeping seperate involves a mouse click on a hyperlink & changing the aspect ratio risks circles becoming ovals and hidden items on a slide becoming unhidden amongst other traits.
                  In a conference I need one continuous deck and unfortunately I can reccomend slides are made as 16:9 but have no control.

                  • Option to disable bilinear image interpolation

                    In my field, we often would like to show low-resolution images, such that the individual pixels can be seen. Currently, PowerPoint uses bilinear interpolation to make the displayed low-resolution image "smooth", which blurs the boundaries between pixels. However, it would be preferable to see the actual pixels, i.e. use nearest neighbor interpolation. A workaround is to upsample the images before importing them into powerpoint, which needlessly increases filesize...

                    • Automatically hide slides based on audience profile

                      Add the ability to create an audience and capture this information within the slide deck. Replace the " hide slide" function with " choose audience" so certain slides can be attached to certain audiences. This way; before you present you can select an audience and automatically the correct slides will be presented (irrelevant slides are automatically hidden based on the audience profile).

                      • Autosave should warn you if you open old presentations and you're going to lose slides

                        In a Powerpoint presentation I built last year, I opened it so that I can remove a few sensitive slides and save-as another version. To my dismay Autosave was put on by default and promptly crashed powerpoint when I tried to deactivate it. When I opened Powerpoint I could not undo and recover the slides I deleted. This is incredibly frustrating. The user should be warned if Autosave is suddenly activated on older presentations, or warn the user that slides will be lost!

                          • Add animations for the new 3D model features currently under development

                            All of the current animations are for 2D objects only. Would like to see animations for 3D objects. One example would be "spin", such as a rotating earth.

                              • Adjust slide printing template for 3 and 4 slides per page, so the slides appear larger and there is less white (blank) space in between.

                                Current handouts templates calling for 3 slides per page or 4 slides per page make the slides appear pretty small in relation to the amount of space available on the page. It is not obvious if there is a fix to enlarge the slides somewhat within these templates.

                                  • Powerpoint 2016: Problem with Recent List

                                    Sep 8, 2017

                                    When I RIGHT-CLICK the Powerpoint 2016 icon in the taskbar (Window 10), to see the recent documents list, it return a list of files which is not recently opened.

                                    When I open the powerpoint, the "recently opened document" list in the PowerPoint app shows the recent files correctly.  It shows different "recent list" documents opened by right click on the taskbar.

                                    I unpinned (=remove from this list) the document, but it does not remove any file from the list. Nothing happened.

                                    I deleted the files that were not recently opened does not work too.

                                    Last attempt, repaired,…

                                    • Ability to save the PowerPoint comparison output with the differences

                                      Currently when Saving the comparison output of two PowerPoint files in PowerPoint it does not retain the notes under the ‘Review Pane’ referring to the changes.

                                      i.e.
                                      1. Compare two versions of a PPT document in PowerPoint
                                      2. Save the PPT file and attempt to send to someone to review these changes (Or just reopen the same file).
                                      3. The differences are not maintained in the file.

                                        I think you should improve your product and template design. The template that u over seems to old and boring. I love microsoft power point because its easy to use, the animation, etc but since im not a designer i have hard time to design my power point for collage presentation. So now days I prefer to use canva.com instead, because they help me to design my power point and its cost free :'( even though they had so many weakness compare to Powerpoint. I write this feedsback because I love power point so much and i want to use…
