  1. Please fix numerous bugs from latest update.

    After downloading the latest version of PowerPoint for my iPad Pro, I noticed several issues. When I use presentation mode, the program will abruptly exit out after 13-14 minutes of use. Other times the program will freeze before exiting out, forcing the user to close the program and reopen. This results in loss of the newest changes, and again happens every 13-14 minutes while using presentation mode.

    As decribed previously by other users, the app no longer recognizes the difference between your finger, or even your palm, and the apple pencil. This makes it a pain to change slides, but…

  2. Copying multiple slides between two presentations

    I would like to have the ability to select a number of slides from one presentation and paste them into another presentation.

    Currently I could copy and paste single slides, but moving back and forth repeatedly between presentations would be painful.

  3. PPT on Ipad Pro version 10.2 keeps crashing when opening up notes to type in. Needs a fix.

    After the update, the app continuously crashes whenever the notes section is opened up to type in.

  4. Virtual trackpad does not work well

    When you in a text box in PowerPoint with the on-screen keyboard and iOS 9+, you should be able to use the virtual trackpad to move the cursor around the text box (pressing and holding the keyboard with two fingers). This works well in all iOS first-party apps and MS Word.

    However in PowerPoint there are two problems:
    - once you double tap a text box to edit the text box and press the keyboard with two fingers, the cursor jumps to another place. This should not happen.
    - when I move the cursor around, the cursor discretely jumps from…

  5. IPAD Pro PowerPoint Video Playback Options

    Why is it not possible to choose 'Start Automatically' or 'Loop until Stop' when inserting a video to a slide on IPAD Pro.
    I understand that there is limited functionality on the Ipad Pro - so I don't expect to edit or fade or anything of that nature.
    But this playback option seems REALLY basic!

  6. Insert Image via OneDrive

    When I use the Insert image feature, there is no option to choose from OneDrive. Weirdly, Keynote and pretty much every other non-Microsoft app I use provides this function! (The same goes for Word, too!)

  7. Add Slide Sorter View

    Having the grid slide sorter view (as in desktop powerpoint) is really essential to working on larger presentations with many slides. Please, please add!

    Thanks!

  8. Add option to save handwritten annotations (made with Apple Pencil) on PowerPoint slides during presentation mode

    I frequently annotate on PowerPoint slides in the presentation mode with my Apple Pencil when using my iPad Pro. However, there is currently no way to save my annotations and I have to resort to using screen captures to save my hand written annotations. Would be great if a feature to save annotations made on slides during presentation mode could be added. Thanks!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Linking of Power Point presentation with Excel workings or Charts

    There is no way to link Power point presentations with excel charts on iPad. so every time when excel file or chart gets updated, we to gain copy & paste the chart on Power point. If it can be linked with excel data, it will be updated automatically.

  13. Use your iPhone or iPad as remote of your iPhone/iPad

    Apple's Keynote makes it possible to use the iPhone as a remote and the iPad is the presentation device, for example. In PowerPoint, there is !no! possibility to use a device as a remote, and I think, this function should have been integrated much versions earlier! So please, implement it! It's really important to make a good presentation and I don't want to use third-party apps!

  14. Enable handwriting to text recognition

    Would be useful to have the conversion of handwriting with the Apple Pencil to typeface. I believe this functionality already exists on the surface.

  15. Landscape send as PDF for IOS

    When using the send as PDF function on powerpoint for IOS the slide renders as a landscape image on a portrait page. It would be great if it could render as a landscape image on a landscape page (as would be the case if you created a PDF on your desktop from powerpoint). Otherwise, I cannot use this to create a client ready presentation while on the road using my iPad.

  16. Enable Search! PLEASE!!!

    Most apps that have a search capability respond to a cmd-F on an iPad. Though PPT has this capability on a Mac, Windows, etc., for whatever reason it doesn't work on an iPad. Please fix this. You clearly have the code since it works on a Mac. Please enable it on the iPad.
    Thanks!

  17. Add "Find and Replace" feature

    Ability to find a text and replace it with another text. Essential for editing a PowerPoint presentation. Available on all other versions of PPT.

  18. Ability to change the speaker notes size and make the slide smaller

    The speaker notes are very tiny on PPT for iOS. I need to have them a bit larger and the slide size a bit smaller. (However I DO love that the movies play in the speaker notes section, unlike Keynote!)

  19. Chromecast Support

    Add Chromecast support to PowerPoint for iOS. Having that feature means that for 35$ (price of a .Chromecast) one could turn an iPhone or iPad to a presentation device.Present your PPt-s stored on Onedrive for business with one click direcly from the phone or have CC download and present it. Currently there is no soltuion to present a PPT from an iOS device.

  20. Get the pen/pencil right on iPad PowerPoint

    It appears as if pen/pencil support has been designed and implemented without any form of usage study.

    Using the pen/pencil for "inking" in Power Point is a <2% activity, yet it is prioritized.

    Using the pen/pencil for selecting and manipulating is a 98% activity, yet it is demoted.

    Please get your priorities correct.
