    Case Ref No. 1433042232
    Hi. Im an Office 365 Home subscriber. Powerpoint freezes and crashes when running slideshow under iOS 12 beta. I do not know if the bug is iOS Powerpoint incompatibility with iOS 12 or it is an iOS 12 beta bug affecting iOS Powerpoint, but I’ve tried all kinds of ppt files, including the sample ppt file “Welcome to Powerpoint,” but the app freezes whenever I run slideshow. I’m using an iPad Pro 10.5 and iPhone 7 plus that are running iOS 12 beta 3. The freezing started with iOS 12 beta 1 on both my iPad…

    • Write Korean letters, the program stops.

      When using powerpoint app with iOS device(I use iPad pro 12.9 2nd gen, iPhone 6s+), I write Korean letter and the powerpoint app stops. If I write English letters, the app still works well. It’s a really big problem Because I can’t make new documents with Korean language. I only can see documents been made already. I need immidiate bug fix with this problem. Some people accuse the same problem in Korean Microsoft forum. Please respond about this problem, and fix this issue. Thanks for reading.

      • PDF'S SIZE EXPORTED

        The option to "export pdf"works well, but the file's size is always bigger than original file. So, when I want share the pdf exported from ppt, I need acess other program to reduce it's size. Isn't a good experience.

          • PowerPoint Presentation to multiple iPads

            Is there an app I can use to share my powerpoint presentation to several ipads. I would like the main iPad to control my powerpoint presentation as it is being viewed by the other 3. In the Apple world, it is easy to do this with Keynote and Keynote Live. However, when you convert your powerpoint to keynote, it sometimes loses fonts, animations, etc.

              • On an iphone when I show slide shows the slide notes cover half of the screen.

                It must be able to hide and show according to the needs of each user of the application.

                    • Error in PowerPoint when using Apple Pencil

                      When using the "Draw" feature, PowerPoint for iOS (iPad) encounters an annoying error that actually makes the feature completely unusable.
                      The pen regularly "slips" (every 2nd/3rd line I draw) outside the boundaries of the slide, which can only be fixed by frequently pressing the undo button and drawing again. This error does not occur on all slides but "only" on slides that contain tables.
                      Problem including images also described here: https://answers.microsoft.com/de-de/msoffice/forum/msoffice_powerpoint-mso_imobile-mso_mobapps/fehler-in-powerpoint-mit-apple-pencil/e3d8b8f4-6f4c-4607-a054-4e727be6de7e?tm=1529480136741
                      On blank slides and in other applications I have absolutely no problems with the drawing function or the pencil in general.

                              • On a iOS device it should be possible to Play a video automatically in a slide show

                                On a iphone one can import a video from the camera roll. BUT it cannot played automatically by switching the slide. That‘s a really important feature for using videos in the app.

                                  • I can’t type comments in PowerPoint for iPad after the 2.10 update.

                                    I can insert a new comment, but no text box appears — just my name and date. I can’t edit past comments or reply to comments either.
                                    I’ve “reset” the app through settings, logged out, and even deleted the app, restarted the ipad, and reinstalled the app. I’m on a regular ipad, not ipad pro, and the ipad is updated.
