  1. '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!

            • Fix PPT freezing on new iPad Pro 12.9.

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

              • 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?

                      (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

                        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.

                        • 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…

                              Short file name PPT can be opened, but needs very very~ long opening time.(5~10 minutes).

                                It would be very nice if the speakers view is accompanied by a stopwatch. Power Point App on iOS.

                                  • Please add embedding Fonts to keep Corporate Designs consistent!

                                    All fonts need to be useable throughout all sorts of applications. Font Embedding definitely needs to work on iPhones, iPads too.

                                      • 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.
