    PowerPoint already has this feature. It's called Format Painter (Home tab, Clipboard group).

    Office already has this feature, though it's undocumented. The Effects Theme in every theme file can do exactly this type of formatting. Unfortunately, creating an effects theme must currently be done by hand-editing the theme XML.

    This is one area where the Windows version is just as bad. Until this feature gets added, it's possible to create custom table styles manually: http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2015/07/xml-hacking-custom-table-styles/

    I agree, this should be added to the program interface. Until that time, here's how to create a Font Theme file using TextEdit: http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2015/10/xml-hacking-font-themes/

    My article at http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2015/10/xml-hacking-font-themes/ describes how to do this using a text editor like TextEdit.

    Add the Paste as Text command to the QAT, then count it's position on the QAT. If it's the 5th icon, the Alt + 5 will run the command.

    Read your YouTube user agreement. Downloading is not allowed unless you own the video.

    When you insert an online video, PowerPoint refers to an Embed code. But the video is NOT being embedded, it is being LINKED. Users are confused by this (check answer.microsoft.com). The wording must be improved.

    The stacking order is relative to the slide, not other objects. Bring Forward raises the object one level on the slide. To stack objects relative to other objects, use the Selection Pane (Home>Select>Selection Pane).

    You can use the Selection Pane (Home>Select>Selection Pane to do this already.

    You can already do this using the Selection Pane (Home>Select>Selection Pane). Just drag the object below the one you want to be in front.

    PowerPoint already does this. Accents 1 through 6 are automatically applied to charts. Here's my article explaining how color themes work: http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2018/02/great-color-themes/

    To color an icon with a gradient:
    1. Right-click on an icon and choose Convert to Shape. Click on Yes, when PowerPoint asks.
    2. Right-click again on the icon and choose Group>Ungroup.
    3. Select an icon shape and recolor with a gradient.

    Microsoft's current implementation tags each cell in the final table with the vertical alignment for that cell. Instead, vertical alignment should be a row property. Then cells that are different from the row setting could be tagged with a different alignment.

    Users have to choose between keeping hyperlinks or keeping fonts in a PDF saved from PowerPoint. This choice is unacceptable, the PDF save needs to retain both. Windows users don't have to make this choice.

    That functionality depends on OLE, a Windows-only technology. Apple has no interest in including OLE in macOS and PDF is not a Microsoft technology. No one stands to make any money from making this possible, so it's unlikely to ever occur. If you depend on this, you'll have to switch to Windows, sorry.

    It's already there. In the Basic Shapes group, choose Partial Circle. This can be set to 1/4, 1/2 3/4 or any other portion of a circle.

    As long as there is text _anywhere_ in your presentation that is marked as French, the French language will appear. Mark _all_ text as English to remove it.

    I think you're looking for the Selection Pane. Home>Select>Selection Pane, then drag objects up and down to change their z-order.
