  1. Custom pencil settings in presentation mode

    Allow pen/pencil color and thickness settings to be customizable in presentation mode (AND ALLOW THOSE SETTINGS TO BE SAVED) on the iPad.

    The defaults are terrible.

    • Compare PowerPoint features on different platforms does not advise if a feature created on a different platform is accessible.

      A simple extra option in this comparison could confirm if features created on a different platform can be used on a more restricted platform like an iPhone.

      E.g. I would like to know if timed transitions created on another platform can be used on an iPhone

      • Fill a form with a picture

        Filloption for a form with a picture is one of my most used style elements on desktop version and it would be great to have it also mobile.

        • Lock on-screen elements to do text manipulation

          There should be a mode on iOS (let's call it "Wordsmithing" mode) where by activating that mode, all the on-screen elements become locked in place and the only thing that happens when you touch the screen is that the cursor allows you to edit text wherever you touch the screen. Right now, if I'm sitting in a meeting with a PPT deck and people are recommending changes to the text or we are "wordsmithing" a PPT slide together, the only way to get into a text box is to accurately double tap it. But in real life, what happens is…

          • Segoe UI Font Support

            The Segoe UI font family (Light, Semilight, Regular, Semibold, Bold) is automatically installed in Windows OS and Office installations. Plus, it is natively available in Office Online (ex. PowerPoint Online). But, it is not included in Office for macOS or mobile (ios/android). Please bring Segoe UI support to these final platforms!

            • Bug in Powerpoint for iOS

              Dear Sir/Madam,
              In the latest update(s) of Powerpoint for iOS there is bug which distorts some, not all, inserted pictures (compressing them in one of the two dimensions). Please correct this as quickly as possible. The same presentation looks perfect using both the latest macOS Sierra or Windows 7 versions of PowerPoint. Luckily, Keynote has become so good in opening PowerPoint files both on Mac, iPhone or iPad, which helped me out temporarily (until the bug is being fixed).
              Regards,
              Lennart

              • 'Triggers' removal iPad Powerpoint App

                We developed a large presentation based on using the 'triggers' functionality in version 1.30. You removed this functionality in version 2.0.3. Is there any plan to return this lost functionality to future updates as this makes our presentation unusable now.

                • Google drive support for Office for iOS

                  Please make Powerpoint compatible with Google Drive, to enable easy open, edit and save of PPT files stored on Drive. Like it is possible for Dropbox, Onedrive and several other third party cloud storage providers.

                  • Improve text box entry with hardware keyboard

                    Entering text into a text box in PowerPoint for iOS is painful. You need to double-tap the text box or tap once and select the pop-up menu to edit. As text boxes can be quite high up the screen, touching the screen for double-tapping repeatedly is painful and frustrating. Why not use a single tap to activate text entry?

                      • Need the ability to edit Pen Settings in Presentation Mode

                        The current color selections in Presentation mode are not ADA compliant. I checked each color against a standard white background - no good for visual impairment.

                        Add the ability to change (and save!) pen settings for presentation mode. This could read directly from the draw pen color/thickness settings (which should also be edit-(and save!) friendly!

                          PPT freezes on my new iPad Pro 12.9, latest version of both. Freezes after 6 or so embedded video clips have played.

                            Please let me select a custom slide show on my iPad like I can on my Windows 10 laptop. To use my iPad for presentation I have to laboriously hide slides instead of simply using a customer slide show.

                            • Revert to turning off finger input when using Apple Pencil as previous versions did (I use pencil primarily for inking)

                              I mark up (ink) my presentation is real time with my Apple Pencil in my software engineering seminars. I then (in the past) advance the slide by swiping my finger. Now my finger continues to ink and I have to tap the inking selection.

                                  • Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

                                    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

                                    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

                                      • 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…

                                        • Custom templates (PowerPoint, Word, ...)

                                          We would like to see ability to have custom/corporate templates available on NEW tab within Office App (PowerPoint, Word, ...).
                                          Currently only Microsoft predefined templates are available.
