  1. Better support for offline work and cloud services

    My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
    - to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive
    - if I use Word to edit a file stored in an offline folder in Box and save and close it, the file disappears from Word. It is somewhere in an invisible upload queue and only when I go back online, it will start…

      • Allow ability to add color transparency to images and shapes.

        You can’t change the transparency on images or shapes in PowerPoint on iOS. This is a shame as it renders the iPad useless as a device for work.

        • Office remote for Mac/iOS

          We need a PPt remote on iOS devices to be able to control and annotate a PowerPoint presentation whilst moving around. Apple have this with Keynote why not with Microsoft?

          • Remove borders around slides when printing

            Allow the app to change print borders, how slides are printed, multi slide printing, etc.

            • Office Mix Add on for Mac and iOS

              Can we have Office Mix on PowerPoint for Mac and iOS?
              We pay full price for Office 365 and this is an excellent tool we are denied because we don't use a Windows device.
              Come on Microsoft you are doing great things but we need more parity between Mac OS/iOS and Windows software versions.

              • 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

                  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.

                  • 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.

                        • 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. Please consider this for our teachers!!! Other apps will rule if this is not an option for users.

                          • 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…

                            • 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.

                                • 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?

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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!

                                        • 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!
