  1. Fix displaying notes

    The newest update for iPad (1.28) has broken notes. When I display the notes, it crashes PowerPoint.

      • Change row and column sizes on tables

        Add ability to individually change the width / height of rows and columns. Right now, you can only change the size of the whole table, which changes the sizes the same amount. This is a pretty standard feature to be able to use tables

        • Apple pencil drawings will not show in presentation mode unless they're converted to shapes.

          So great to be able to use Apple pencil as part of design tool when making a presentation but then, drawings won't show up.

          • Changing Pencil thickness in presentation mode

            Hi,

            I have been using Powerpoint on an iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil in my lectures for a couple of weeks now and: I'm impressed. There's one thing that annoys me: Is it possible to change the thickness of the pencil while being in presentation mode? That would be very helpful... Since it's possible to do it while in normal mode, the step hopefully isn't that big, is it?

            Regards
            Michael

              • Ruler and tabs to move and indent text and objects

                Can't indent bulleted text, super annoying.

                • 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!)

                  • 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.

                      • 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!

                          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.

                          • Embed Fonts

                            Allow powerpoint for mac to support embedded fonts like on windows and previous versions. It makes the format a lot more portable that way, otherwise we end up having to only use pdf files to share.

                            • 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.

                              • 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!

                                  • 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!

                                    • BUGS since last update!!!!!!!!

                                      I want to use hyperlinked images to get me around different slides, and when I press on any other part of the screen I do not want it to proceed to next slide. I turn off 'proceed to next slide' when I create the PPT on my laptop, but as soon as I transfer to the Ipad app it doesn't work. IT WAS WORKING FINE UNTIL THE LAST UPDATE!!!!

                                        • 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.
