  1. The lasso select to select shapes

    The lasso select tool in the draw menu selects only freehand drawn objects, not shapes. It will not even select the shapes that have been created with "convert to shapes". I want to be able to select all objects that the lasso encloses.

  4. Open 2 PPTx side by side (iPad Pro-only feature)

    When creating PPTx on the desktop, users constantly copy slides between PPTx to build a new deck from old content. iOS won’t allow you to open two instances of the app side-by-side, but the app itself could allow for both. With split screen, you’ve already figured out the UI for showing a PPTx on half the screen, so that wouldn’t need to change. This would be such a powerful feature!

  5. Make an app that controls PPT from an IOS device.

    Truth of the world is that many people do not just have "All Microsoft" or "All Apple" households and work places. I am a teacher with an iPhone, an iPad, and my work computer is Windows. I am in need of an app that can control a powerpoint presentation launched from powerpoint on my computer. It needs to be able to see slides, next slides, presenter notes, and most importantly, to draw on slides with my finger to underline or make a key point.

  6. Multiple instances (View two documents - Split View)

    Just like the new Safari's two tab viewing ability, would like to see this on Power point, Word, Excel and One Note.

  10. Please add embedding Fonts to keep Corporate Designs consistent!

    All fonts need to be useable throughout all sorts of applications. Font Embedding definitely needs to work on iPhones, iPads too.

  12. Formatting options in PowerPoint mobile app printing

    When tapping the Print option, there are no formatting options to choose from. You can either tap the option AirPrint or the option Open in Another App. I’d like to request formatting options similar to what is available in the Excel mobile app. The Landscape option is the main goal.

  13. Audio for Powerpoint on iPad app

    Audio should be added to the PowerPoint app for the iPad and iPhone, not many people use a PC/Mac and I think it would be very convenient to have this option on the app, it is on the regular computers why take it away or make it more difficult to use. I think an audio tab should be added under insert for a quick access.

  14. Touch ID to get into PowerPoint (like outlook)

    Touch/Face ID to get into PowerPoint just like Outlook has. Then, if someone steals your phone and they know your passcode, then can’t get into PowerPoint.

  15. Improved Animation Settings / Controls on iOS

    It would be great to more substantially edit animations on slides from an iPad / iPhone.
    Animation order, speeds, on-click / with / after settings, etc. would be invaluable.

  16. Allow Audio Recording and Screencasting from iPad app

    Audio recordings of student work is becoming a powerful tool in the classroom, but the PPT app version for iPad doesn't allow you to insert an audio recording over your slides or use screencasting. Please consider this for our teachers!!! Other apps will rule if this is not an option for users.

  17. Changing Pencil thickness in presentation mode

    Hi,

    I have been using Powerpoint on an iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil in my lectures for a couple of weeks now and: I'm impressed. There's one thing that annoys me: Is it possible to change the thickness of the pencil while being in presentation mode? That would be very helpful... Since it's possible to do it while in normal mode, the step hopefully isn't that big, is it?

    Regards
    Michael

  20. Compress presentation to smaller size!

    Make it possible to compress all images off the file in order to reduce the size of the presentation. Missing this function!

    Also add a saving option for sending pdf over web in smaller size.
