  1. 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.

          • Ability to change the speaker notes size and make the slide smaller

            The speaker notes are very tiny on PPT for iOS. I need to have them a bit larger and the slide size a bit smaller. (However I DO love that the movies play in the speaker notes section, unlike Keynote!)

            • Get the pen/pencil right on iPad PowerPoint

              It appears as if pen/pencil support has been designed and implemented without any form of usage study.

              Using the pen/pencil for "inking" in Power Point is a <2% activity, yet it is prioritized.

              Using the pen/pencil for selecting and manipulating is a 98% activity, yet it is demoted.

              Please get your priorities correct.

              • The lasso select to select shapes

                The lasso select tool in the draw menu selects only freehand drawn objects, not shapes. It will not even select the shapes that have been created with "convert to shapes". I want to be able to select all objects that the lasso encloses.

                • Audio for Powerpoint on iPad app

                  Audio should be added to the PowerPoint app for the iPad and iPhone, not many people use a PC/Mac and I think it would be very convenient to have this option on the app, it is on the regular computers why take it away or make it more difficult to use. I think an audio tab should be added under insert for a quick access.

                  • Add ability to set Text line spacing options

                    Please bring the desktop feature allowing to set the text line spacing options (before and after paragraph, between lignes... etc) over to iOS (and actually PPT Online)
                    This with auto fit text is the #1 request in our office with 50 sales reps on iPad.

                    • Placement of text boxes

                      The ability to move text boxes would benefit significantly however if I missed this feature would you be so kind as to inform me of this feature

                        • Copying multiple slides between two presentations

                          I would like to have the ability to select a number of slides from one presentation and paste them into another presentation.

                          Currently I could copy and paste single slides, but moving back and forth repeatedly between presentations would be painful.

                          • Convert text/drawn objects to pictures.

                            Currently fonts and images look different when I mail them to Windows desktop users. If I could cut items and paste them as an image as I can on desktop I could control the way things look when I send them out. This is a killer feature for pro usage of PowerPoint on iPad. It's nearly perfect for user stories/ux activities

                                • Web browser-based casting of PowerPoint Presentations

                                  Imagine going to a meeting and simply asking a client to open up a browser on any screen, you type in a small URL that features a sync code. You open up PowerPoint on your mobile device (iPad or iPhone) and pair it with the sync code to instantly present your presentation completely wirelessly. No Miracast, No AirPlay. Just a browser-based receiver. There is a company called Shodogg that currently does this. You should partner up with them so they can create a plug in or add on that works with PowerPoint for iPad and iPhone and the the rest…

                                    • Use your iPhone or iPad as remote of your iPhone/iPad

                                      Apple's Keynote makes it possible to use the iPhone as a remote and the iPad is the presentation device, for example. In PowerPoint, there is !no! possibility to use a device as a remote, and I think, this function should have been integrated much versions earlier! So please, implement it! It's really important to make a good presentation and I don't want to use third-party apps!

                                        Would be great to install custom fonts to Office 365, specifically PowerPoint. Any way to do that? Thank you.

                                          I would like to take a picture from my iPhone and have a few editing features in the OneDrive app.
