How can we improve PowerPoint for iPad & iPhone (iOS)? Vote for an existing idea or share a new one.

Allow ability to add color transparency to images and shapes.

You can’t change the transparency on images or shapes in PowerPoint on iOS. This is a shame as it renders the iPad useless as a device for work.

        The transparency settings for background images are not accessible in PowerPoint for iPad. This may be made available.

        For now you will just have to make a pptx on the computer with a transparent object and from the app you can modify the colors and shapes. (The opacity is maintained)
        Copy and paste it to future projects. Hopefully it’s only a temporary workaround.
