  2. Edit object properties

    It would be great if you'd allow to edit powerpoint oject properties. I want to e.g. set the font, color, background or spellcheck language from within my app on text boxes or the size/location of a selected object etc..

  3. Ability to insert add-in on multiple slides or slide master

    Add an option to insert add-in on single slide or multiple slides. Current add-in can be added only in single slide.

  4. PowerPoint 2016 Chart filter issue

    PowerPoint chart filter shows "The linked file is not available" when the filter is clicked for the second time.

    When troubleshooting the issue found out the cause as Excel VSTO Add-in which handles "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" Event in ThisAddin.vb. Even without any code in "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" causes this error. If I comment 'Application_WorkbookOpen' then it works fine.

    This happens for other Workbook events as well.

    Posted the same issue with a sample excel add-in in msdn fourm. Please go through for more information.

    Our add-in is deployed for more that 5000 users globally. It will be great if this issue…

  7. Allow buttons to be clickable in presentation mode

    During the slide show (presentation mode), it would be great if the user was able to click buttons. This worked until some weeks ago, but now I am not able to click buttons during presentations on my Laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad E540). The presentation will just jump to the next slide, thus the app is not focused. But this still works on my colleague's laptop (Asus Vivobook S400C).

    Is this an intended change or will users be able to click buttons in PowerPoint content apps in the future?

    Lenovo Laptop PowerPoint Version: 16.0.7726.1042 (64 Bit)
    Asus Laptop Powerpoint Version: 16.0.8201.2102 (32…

  8. Trigger Presentation Mode in PowerPoint

    Add functionality to trigger the presentation from within a taskpane add-in.
    Add the following function to the library: Document.setActiveViewAsync
    Having F5 reload the add-in is rather useless.

  9. PowerPoint Add-in Instance Id

    I would like to have a way of identifying Add-in instances once they are inserted in the document.

    My addin adds a picture in the selected part of a PowerPoint document. At the same time I also add some persistent data using Office.context.document.settings.set

    Is there a way to specify the name of the picture within powerpoint?
    When I unzip the pptx I see that my persistent data is on the webextensions.xml but when I look at inside the slide folder, for instance slides1.xml all I see is the pictures but I dont have a way to associate the pictures from…

  10. PowerPoint Online Bug

    Hello, please fix the bug!
    When we are viewing a slideshow in PowerpointOnline created with add-in, slides containing add-in’s content do not appear to load. Error message
    I think this error is a bug of PowerPoint Online.I have created the other apps, that are already in MS Store market. They work without errors in read mode, but bring the same error in full screen mode. Please, look at this screen video: yadi.sk/d/mtypZZx-wNSst yadi.sk/i/coV_DWvQwNUTf
    I think there is a problem with using sharepoint Add-in files with PowerPoint Online for all webservices in fullscreenmode.
    It's really bug or it's my error?
    Manifest…

  11. Add ability to create/update charts in PowerPoint using JavaScript API

    JavaScript API for PowerPoint is very limited at the moment. The only options we have are to insert text or picture. Presentations are all about the visualization, so it would be very cool if we have an option to add/update charts as well.

  12. Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint (Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint -(Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    I often must communicate problems in terms of theoretical population distributions. This is for concepts only of course since actual distributions can be graphed in Excel.

  13. Add Support for running batch operations like in Word and Excel

    Enable developers to add content to a Powerpoint file in a similar way that the Word 1.1 and Excel 1.1 API allow us to insert directly in document model

  14. Problems, Problems, Problems

    we have big problems with the use of the Power Point API: The current version is full of bugs, versions are exchanged without prior notice, new versions are withdrawn ...

    Why is that? When to expect a debugged, final version??

  17. Add SlideSelectionChanged event for Powerpoint in the JavaScript API

    The JavaScript API for Office should be enhanced so developers have an event notifying if the current slide in the normal / edit mode is changed. This would allow for more contextual user interaction.

  19. exhibit linked slide on hyperlinks

    when on presentation mode - hovering over a hyperlinked item should display the linked slide/file in small and mute to the man presenting.
    sometimes in complicated and long presentations, it is very much needed to see where the links on the slide presented/next slide takes us!! it is useful and reassuring in case of forgetting or trying to decide whether to hop or not to the linked slide/file
