  1. 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.

            • there is no smart art feature available in offline version for ipad.

              Managing with offline version with no smart art , is not possible. This is a common feature being used by all ppt makers. While travelling mobile data is always disruptive n hence non availability of this feature brings down the productivity n purpose of using ipad.

              • Enable the capability to choose whether or not to use "Presenter View" inslide show mode on Iphone

                I created a PowerPoint presentation with slides in portrait orientation.
                When I display on iPhone I am always in presenter view and lose screen real-estate to thumbnails and notes. If I turn my iPhone sideways, I am out of presenter view but the images are portrait on a landscape screen.

                You only have an arrow or play option for slide show. You can’t chose which mode to play in as on a PC or IPAD. On the PC and IPAD when you click “slide show” , you have capability to choose your mode/view. That does not exist on IPhone. It…

                • 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.

                              • iPad Pro 12.9" iOS 11 - Drawing is very delayed when drawing in presentation mode. Fix it please.

                                Drawing or annotating a slide is very slow, and the line drawn is delayed. This is a step up from previous versions where the app just crashed after 15 minutes, but it is still not good enough. Please fix the delayed drawing function.

                                  This request is for a feature to help people with "Essential Tremor" draw figures: When using Powerpoint on my laptop, I can use "Insert", "Shapes", "Lines" and select the 2nd option from the right to draw polygons with straight edges. This feature does not appear to be available on the iPad Powerpoint. The only option that could be used to draw a polygon on the iPad is a "freeform line" and, because of what is called an "Essential Tremor", the figure that results is unrecognizable Please add the shape tool from the MacOS Powerpoint or a similar feature to Powerpoint…

                                        I am using a custom font for my presentation. And it does not show up correctly on iOS.

                                        All characters are displayed one above the other.

                                        It did work in previous versions. And the text is still displayed correctly in other iOS-Apps (Keynote, etc.).
