      You can currently do this in PowerPoint. Simply insert your text box, add some text, then in the Format ribbon, in the Insert Shapes section select Edit Shape. From there choose Edit Points, your shape, in this case textbox, is now editable. If you want to make more granular changes you can right click on the textbox while in the edit mode and choose options such as add or remove points.

        You can currently do this in the product.

        - Place your text box on top of the background image

        - Right click the text box and select Format Shape

        - Change the fill to a color. If you want to lighten the image choose a white fill, for a darker look fill the shape with black

        - At the bottom of the fill section you'll see a transparency slider, adjust that to control the transparency of the box.

        If you want a similar effect with text you repeat the same steps only you want to be in the Text Options section of the task pane instead of Shape Options.

        I hope this helps!

                We can now zoom to 400%, is that enough for you? Thanks!

                      Hi, thanks for the feedback. PowerPoint online currently plays audio inserted from other endpoints but does not allow inserting audio directly. It is something we've heard from many customers and are taking under consideration.

                      Hi, can you provide some more details on how it was changed? Are there specific animations/transitions that are not working for you after you upload the presentation?

                          Hi, thanks for the feedback. Do you want to have it in full screen while you are editing the PowerPoint or only when you in slideshow?

                                Hi, thanks for the feedback. Have you tried using the embed feature (File..Share..Embed)? Let me know if that helps.

                                    Hi, can you explain a bit more about what you mean by "list the slides"? Sounds like a feature we have on Desktop called "Slide Sorter", but I just want to be sure.

                                    Thanks for the suggestion!

                                        Hi, thanks for the suggestion. It sounds like an interesting idea. Can you describe a bit more how you see using a cell phone to pass slides.

                                          Hi, thanks for the feedback. PowerPoint online does not currently support Presenter View. We will count your vote with others asking for Presenter View.
