  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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?

  11. Be able to move to SD card

    Move the app to external memory, because it's consuming a lot of internal memory

  19. Better active stylus (e.g. Spen) support

    Onenote for Android has great active stylus support. Please add the same support to Powerpoint comparable to the quality of Powerpoint on Windows and Onenote on Android. Currently the pen input is very laggy and there's no pressure sensitivity.

  20. Act like as if I am on the computer

    When I used it i can move pictures around which annoys me. I want it to work the same ways as if am a computer. I would like it to copy and paste with using "Ctrl" and "x" and I want it to stop freezing when I am in the middle of my work. I would to do two pieces of work at the time, for example having Microsoft word and PowerPoint, up at the same time. So that I could do several work, without having to change the tab, just on one page. I would also like the design…
