  1. Eraser and markers doesn't work in presentation mode

    I have the following problem:
    As a teacher I use ppt everyday in class. I use a android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S3) to show my presentations and often I integrate handwritten notes during the presentation.
    Sadly the eraser and the marker-tool doesn't work during presentation.
    Please update! The problem exists for a whole year.

  3. PowerPoint app isn't available for my Acer 15 inch Chromebook.

    I recently subscribed to Office 365 with the hope of being able to use the Android apps on my Acer Chromebook 15. Word and Excel are installed and work well. But PowerPoint isn't available for my Chromebook. I installed it successfully on my wife's 11 inch Acer Chromebook. I would appreciate it very much if you could work on this. Thank you.

  5. Add slide sorter view

    Slide sorter for reorganizing large presentations would be very useful for changing a lengthy presentation

  6. Segoe UI Font support needed - other segoe fonts are auto-downloaded, but not UI and UI Light

    Great job PowerPoint App on Android. Many Windows fonts are supported by auto download. Also a lot of (even exotic) Segoe fonts.

    BUT: The most important base Segoe UI and Segoe UI Light are missing!

    Our company use these fonts as base fonts for all documents, and replacing them with Calibri does look different...

  7. Omitted graphs. Google Slides worked, MS Power Point for Android didn't.

    Need to open presentations from co-workers fairly often. First tried PowerPoint for Android and the essential graphs on the slides didn't even show up. Next tried Google Slides and there they were! Uninstalled your app.

  10. Fully support playing audio files created on the desktop version of PPT using "Trim"

    I created a PPT on Windows 10. It has only 1 slide. I want to play portions of audio file in my classroom. On Windows 10 the audio starts and stops where I had configured it to. But on Android the audio always starts at the beginning of the file instead of where I had configured it to start. However on Android it does stop and the predetermined location. Not sure is this is a but or and unsupported feature. If unsupported I think it would be a useful feature to add of the Android version of PPT.

  11. Mixed portrait and landscape slides

    It will be great if power point had the ability to mix portrait and landscape slide formats in a single presentation and also to have the ability to create slides of different sizes in the same presentation. This would be of great use to for designers to present their portfolios since their works won't have consistent orientation and size formats.

    These ideas would be worthy in powerpoint for desktop, but people are more oriented towards smartphones, might work well with android too.

  12. Browse USB or other attached media from PowerPoint for Android

    We are deploying a number of Promethean ActivConnects in our school as part of their ActivPanel system. The ActivConnect Gs are Android-powered and use the PowerPoint Android app. The ActivConnect Gs have USB flash and MicroSD card inputs to read external storage... yet we have to use the Explorer app on the Android system to open PowerPoints. Please add an ability in the Android app to browse attached media!

  13. make it possible to install fonts

    My company's powerpoint template uses a font that isn't already installed on android. Without that font in place, I can't accurately judge what my slides are really going to look like. I could install the font if I rooted my tablet, but I'd rather not do that.

  14. BUG(?): Can't open from OneDrive for Business

    If I try to "Add a place" click OneDrive for Business enter email name@company.ac.uk I get the error message "Can't complete task. Office encountered a problem."

    If I click "Browse" and navigate to my OneDrive for Business that way. It starts to open, I again enter my email address, the opening file message then closes and nothing happens.

    Additionally if I try to open a presentation via "Browse" I can only open .pptx and not .pptm files (this is the case in both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business).

  15. Save as *.gif format from PowerPoint

    1. We need to create *.gifs for internal SharePoint website data, training material creation.
    2. Looking for assistance from Microsoft PowerPoint, so that slide pictures with animations can be converted / saved as *.gif
    3. This will help us to reduce lot of work in creating training material in simple and intuitive way.
    4. Online *.gif converters do not help in this case, since the pictures contain confidential data, which cannot be uploaded online.
    5. Looking for this option : save-as *.GIF in PowerPoint, awaiting and standing by.

    Need your help.

  17. Multi-window support

    Android devices with version 7.0 and up have support for opening two windows at once. Adding this support in PowerPoint would greatly improve productivity, particularly when needing to copy information between documents

  18. Shape group and ungroup

    I'm drawing a number of complex diagrams. If I need to move it and the current slides, is difficult and manual for each shape.

    If I had group and ungroup, it would simplify drawing complexity.

    Lasso doesn't select shapes, maybe if you can add group/ungroup the enhance lasso.

  19. PowerPoint for mac should support .swf files, just like PowerPoint for Microsoft.

    We are losing our work here because of the lack of support of adobe media (.SWF) in mac. Can you solve this?
