FOR BETTER NOTE TAKING: Option to lock editing while in drawing mode
Don't you hate it when you're rushing to take notes and accidentally end up destroying the slide?
Whether you use the Microsoft PowerPoint app to take notes during an important business meeting or medical school lecture, this feature would help prevent accidental edits as you quickly draw on the slides.
Perhaps accomplished with a simple checkbox in the drawing toolbar, users would be able to lock the text/image elements on the slide and then be able to continue annotating without any worries of moving things around.
While the option to lock slides seems rather simple, it would actually be a HUGE feature for anyone using an Apple Pencil or stylus.
One reason so many students utilize apps like Notability and Goodnotes is that it much more easy and efficient to write on lecture slides when all the moveable elements are fixed. The downside of this is that it is not possible to make edits to the Slides themselves in the case of a typo or error.
If PowerPoint decides to incorporate this "lock slides" option, it would become an ideal note taking app for many. You are not only able to work on editing your Slideshow, but are also able to draw on the slides without damaging any of said edits.
In the current pandemic with so many people working from home or attending schools/universities virtually, this would truly help make a difference. With a single addition of a "lock" feature, you would be transforming the capabilities of the Microsoft iOS app and paving the way towards the future.
Please consider this development. Thank you.
Please add this feature
This ability to lock editing temporarily would be a rather helpful feature. I currently use Notability and would probably shift my notes over to the PowerPoint app if this is introduced..
As a student I think this would be amazing!
