  1. 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.

          • Office on iOS share with an anonymous link

            Once a user has a presentation open on their phone/tablet, they should be able to share that file in any way they can on any other device using the built-in share function (i.e. without having to go to another app/site to have the full set of sharing options their organization allows).

            • Feature to help people with "Essential Tremor" draw figures

              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…

                • Font displayed incorrectly

                  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.).

                      IT HAS BEEN MONTHS AND IT IS SO EASY TO IMPLEMENT. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR A COMPANY AS LARGE AS MICROSOFT TO HAVE NOT IMPLEMENTED THIS FEATURE YET.

                        • Again for drag and drop for PowerPoint from office 365 subscriber.

                          It’s so inconvenient that PowePoint for IOS doesn’t support Drag and Drop function. I’ve literally switched my PPT work to Keynotes on my iPad just for that Function. I’ve got tons of pic and video need to be added, and by using Keynotes, I don’t have to save the video and pic to Gallery evertimes in order to insert them. But for PowerPoints...... u guys know what have to be done in order to Insert....

                          So disappointed by Office team as a subscriber. Cannot understand why they cannot fix this issue in such a long time. They should already be…

                          • The slide notes cover the slide screen after updating this app on the iPad. When I press“slide note”,slide doesn’t be reduced automatically.

                            The slide notes cover the slide screen after updating the PowerPoint app on the iPad. Just three days ago, when you press the slide note button on the iPad horizontal screen, the slide notes will open on the right screen, and the slide notes will be left in the right hand screen and the slide screen will be smaller, and the slide will not be reduced automatically. When you activate the slide note, you can't hide the right side of the slide content. We zoom in with zoom in as we zoom in, but we're back to square one and…

                                        • Allow Audio Recording and Screencasting from iPad app

                                          Audio recordings of student work is becoming a powerful tool in the classroom, but the PPT app version for iPad doesn't allow you to insert an audio recording over your slides or use screencasting.
