    This is unnecessary - PowerPoint alignment is actually better than Adobe as Adobe you have to tell the software what you want to set as the anchor object (more clicks).

    PowerPoint will use the top-most, bottom-most, left-most or right-most object as the anchor point when aligning to a side which is far quicker.

    A single object (or single group of objects) will then align to the slide - simple!

    For users complaining about the number of clicks, add the alignment tools to the Quick Access Toolbar and it takes seconds to align an object or a group to the center of a slide vertically and horizontally as it saves navigating through the menus.

    This would be a brilliant feature!

    With this you could create web-like experiences with buttons that can change color / animate on mouse-over. Or have pop-ups that animate on mouse-over. Please implement this!

    It's in the Home tab > Select (on the right of the ribbon) > Selection Pane... not that tricky to find really?

    You can also add it to the Quick Access toolbar if you want to access it super quick!

    Just move the guide to roughly where you want it and zoom in. You can then easily move it to the exact number you want - realise this isn't as convenient as typing the numbers in, but when zoomed, it's very easy to move it where you want (holding the Alt key gives you more precise guide movement)

    You can bodge this by grouping the object you want to pivot with another shape that has no outline and full transparency. Then move the 'invisible' object away from the original so that the vertical and horizontal centre of the whole group is roughly at the point where you want it to pivot.

    A further expansion on this idea which would be just as useful would be for PowerPoint to show the file size of assets on individual slides as well as a total for the full presentation. It would be much easier to find large images / videos that need compressing this way.

    Just right click and select the paste as text option out of the 4 pasting options?
