    Gabriela says that she would like to be able to add vertical and horizontal slides in the same presentation. Jose comments that it seems to hime that this is a very interesting and necessary option.

    Your suggestion will travel farther and faster if you explain *why* you think it's ridiculous and your reasons for needing multiple orientations in a presentation. It may be obvious to you, but may not be to the developers who read these suggestions. Make it obvious to them too.

    YES! Please! People on Answers are asking why changing slide sizes is inconsistent (eg. between regular and superthemes) and of course, want to create their own superthemes so resizing (4:3 to 16:9) doesn't destroy their presentations.

    The feature already exists. Click New Window on the View tab. A new window on the presentation opens. Move it to the other monitor, put it in Slide Sorter view. Done.

    You could customize the Outline view icon onto the home tab if you wished. You'd have to add a new custom group to the Home tab first. Or you could add Outline view to the Quick Access toolbar.

    And give PowerPoint all of the useful substitution codes that Word and (I believe) Excel have for this; not just the file name but the path, the date, author and all the rest.

    This is actually a feature. Sort of. The themes that come with PowerPoint are mostly (all?) "SuperThemes" ... they include several individual themes and variants. One of the advantages is that they contain different 4:3 and 16:9 themes, so that when you switch between them, the slides adapt intelligently. HOWEVER if you start with one of these themes and modify, say, the 4:3 version ... change the fonts, sizes, colors ... then switch to 16:9, you get the layout/fonts/colors originally included in the theme, not the ones you expect. To modify one of the existing themes, start a new presentation, choose the variant/aspect ratio you want, then save it as a theme. That will rid it of the extra themes so when you start a new pressie based on it, you shouldn't get these unexpected font/color/etc changes.

    Do you mean inverting as in "flip it upside down but not rotated", or as in "Invert the colors, make black white and white black and so on"?

    The problem doesn't appear when you're working on a given slide, but when you need to move from slide to slide (or from one master/layout to another) the pane resets itself. It should remain in the same state until the USER changes it.

    If it's just "Next slide, please", it sounds like excess technology in search of a way of taking us back to the bad old "Next slide please" days before we had remotes and digital projectors. On the other hand, current speech recognition technology should be WELL up to the task of doing seriously cool stuff like "Go To Slide 42" or "Go To Slide Titled YEAR IN SUMMARY". And of course, Next/Previous slide. ;-)

    In PPT 2013 and beyond, you can put guides on the masters and layouts, which effectively gives you what you're asking for.

    Removing the “Under Review” tag since this idea does not have sufficient votes for us to take on as a new feature.

    We want to make sure the User Voice site is up to date with the engineering efforts we are making. Please continue submitting ideas and voting.
