    Posting a .ppsx file should automatically launch it in PowerPoint Online. There's no good reason for any other behavior. Duh.

    Chart Templates allow you to preformat a chart the way you like it, then easily reuse that format. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/save-a-custom-chart-as-a-template-259a5f9d-a9ec-4b3f-94b6-9f5e55187f2a?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us Unfortunately, it doesn't handle subtitles.

    A well-designed corporate presentation template will use the same color theme across all departments.

    Office 2008 and 2011 for Mac included a SmartArt Graphics folder for new Glox files. You removed this, please restore it.

    A zoom animation will do this, no new feature required.

    The existing Slide Master and Layouts setup is already a challenge for most users. Making it more complicated will not help. Instead, create separate slide masters for the color variants, or hack the layout XML to create a layout with a different color sequence. Here's how: http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2018/12/xml-hacking-layout-color-variations-for-charts/

    As an add-in developer, I disagree with this suggestion. It shouldn't be any easier to view the code than it now is.

    I have every version installed back to PowerPoint 2004 for Mac. It's never been in the Mac version, only in the Windows edition. But I agree, it needs to be added.

    This is pretty easy to do with the program as it is. Create 2 decks, one that loops, another that is the main deck. Put a hyperlink or action button on all the looping slides, with the link opening the main file.

    That effect is used because the narration for a slide is attached to that slide, allowing you to reshuffle slides after recording a narration. If there was a continuous audio track with no ducking, you would have to re-record the narration every time you rearranged your slides. A workaround is to stop talking during recording before you advance the slide.

    It sounds like you're confusing the Slide Master with the Title layout. There's no problem adding extra placeholders to a Title layout.

    The theme does travel with the file and the name is retained, but it isn't displayed in the program interface. You have to read the XML file to see it (I know, not very useful!) As soon as your colleague opens the color picker, they will see the theme colors you set in the top row.

    If you saved 12Mb, you had a badly-designed template and should fire your designer. Removing masters (you probably mean layouts) reduces the future compatibility of your presentation.

    PowerPoint can already do this. The content placeholder can hold an Excel table or you can use Paste Special>Microsoft Excel Binary worksheet Object.

    PowerPoint already does this. That's what table styles are for.

    I don't see any evidence of this. Both JPG and PNG files inserted in a content placeholder will resize the placeholder to fit the image and simultaneously center the image on the placeholder position. Both file types, when placed in a picture placeholder, will resize the picture to fit the largest placeholder dimension and crop the other dimension. It sounds like you want to be using a picture placeholder instead of a content placeholder.
