Agree. This is a must have for users on the iPad for Microsoft Word. Please allow multiple instances across all of the Microsoft Office apps on iOS.
I agree with the rest. I am a teacher and we use IPads IOS in the College as well as PCs using windows. We have resulted in using keynote and converting as we need to do a lot of copying and pasting of slides. Please allow multiple instances in PowerPoint. many thanks.
A need !!! Please we need this feature, like align right center left middle etc as well.
PowerPoint iPad got to be as powerful as PowerPoint on desktop. Please bring all these features soon as possible. Multiple slide select, copying slides between presentations takes so much time on ipad ! Thanks
Absolutely agree with the need for this feature.

This is a must-have, in order to have enterprise class capabilities on-the-go.
A traditional use-case to copy a couple of slides from one PowerPoint to another currently takes FOREVER to perform: Open PowerPoint -> Select Source pptx -> Wait a couple of seconds for PP to open the file -> Select one (!!!) of the slides you want to copy (since you can't copy multiple slides at once) -> Close the source pptx -> Wait a couple of seconds for PP to close the file -> Select destination pptx -> Wait a couple of seconds for PP to open the file -> Paste -> Repeat for every other slide.
Something that takes seconds on a desktop (Mac or Windows) takes minutes if copying a small set of slides, and even longer depending on the network connection and the number of slides.
This has to be implemented, if Microsoft takes the mobile workplace seriously!!!
Since work on implementing this feature has started for Word (for iPad), am assuming this will be implemented across the board i.e. for Excel and Powerpoint as well.. right?
