    It sounds like you haven't found the Drawing Tools Format>Align tool yet. Except for your specific keyboard shortcuts, you can already do 1, 2 and 3. After aligning, group the objects and resize. I'm no fan of graphic formatting with the keyboard, but you can already resize with it. If the shape has the aspect ratio unlocked, Ctrl + Shift + Up Arrow makes it taller while Ctrl + Shift + Down Arrow make it shorter. Ctrl + Shift + Right Arrow for wider, Ctrl + Shift + Left Arrow for narrower. If the aspect ratio is locked, the those key combinations will make the shape or group larger or smaller proportionately. I'm not sure what you intend to happen with 4 and 5, you haven't worded it clearly, but it sounds like you want to rotate, which also has built-in keyboard shortcuts.

    PowerPoint already does this. If you choose View>Slide Master, you can create a custom slide layout that has any combination of placeholders you like. You can create unlimited slide layouts for great flexibility.

    The Footer field is for this. It's not automatic, but it also doesn't limit your formatting or text options.
    Select the slides in a section in the left-hand thumbnail list, choose Insert>Header & Footer. Enter the section name in the Footer field and click on Apply.

    PowerPoint already does this. After formatting the shape, right-click on it and choose Set as Default Shape. As long as you're using the same presentation, PowerPoint will remember those settings. You can also set this in a template, make that template the default and then all your new decks will have the same default shape formatting.

    Microsoft has already developed a solution for this issue: SharePoint. You can start using SharePoint Online for as little as $5/month per user: https://products.office.com/en-us/sharepoint/compare-sharepoint-plans

    This is what SharePoint was invented to solve. Slide libraries are an important part of it. You can start using SharePoint Online for for as little as $5/month: https://products.office.com/en-us/sharepoint/compare-sharepoint-plans

    1. Choose View>Slide Master
    2. Select a similar layout, then duplicate it, or choose Slide Master>Insert Layout.
    3. Choose Insert Placeholder to insert the number and type of placeholders you need.
    Using this technique, you can already make any type of custom layout with any number of placeholders.

    By default, PowerPoint tables already autofit to content.

    This would be a great addition to the program interface. In the mean time, you can hack the XML to create custom PowerPoint table styles. This article will get you started: http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2015/07/xml-hacking-custom-table-styles/

    Here are the steps to change font size in the Notes pane:
    1. In PowerPoint, choose View>Outline View from the OS X menu bar at the top of your screen.
    2. Right-click in the Outline area to the left of the slide preview and choose Show Formatting.
    3. Right-click in the Notes pane. Font and Paragraph choices are now available in the pop-up menu. Use these to set the font size.

    It appears this bug was added in the 14.6.8 update.

    If you select a slide, then choose View>Slide Master, the layout used for that slide will already be selected.

    Picture placeholders apply antialiasing to images placed in them, while Content placeholders do not. You can see this by placing a resolution test in both types of placeholders, then printing to PDF. The picture placeholder result is always blurrier that the content placeholder. This makes the picture placeholder worse for using with pictures, because the image is degraded by PowerPoint. PowerPoint already applies antialiasing to all images for display anyway, 2 levels of antialiasing looks really bad.
