  2. Add a support for InsertXML for powerpoint

    As like the Selection.Range.InsertXMl I need the option in powerpoint also. It will be helpful for adding contents using openxml.

  3. 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.

  5. Allow PowerPoint API to format font without selecting.

    Would be great if the PPT API gave you control over the font formatting as the Word API does. That way an add-in could create part of the presentation.with the formatting already done for you. It'd also be nice if the API could detect the font on screen without needing it to be selected.

  7. 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..

  8. Increase PowerPoint screen recorder frame rate

    Please can you increase the frame rate that PowerPoint is able to record at? Screen recording in PP is an absolute game changer, but 10 fps is nowhere near high enough and produces footage that stutters along.

  10. Section control and multiple slides

    It'd be great if the PPT API could give you control over slide sections and detect which section you are currently working under. And if you had control over all the slides in that section rather than just the current slide. That way if you needed a set of slide to look extremely similar you could control them all at once. Also the creation of sections and multiple slides would be great!

  11. Adding web (iFrame or so on) to slide from Add-ins that extend functionality

    Lot of Add-ins developers wants to create extend Add-in with adding same content to slides functionality(more, than images or text, that is allowed by setSelectedDataAsync method).

    So they have to use Content Add-inns, and user have to add them to slides several times (for examle vote widgets of Mentimeter app.)
    Its very unconvinient!

    Please provide us extended the functionality of adding web pages to slides

  13. Please edit the Document.setSelectedDataAsync() for PowerPoint to allow passing parameters to add image as linked image.

    This will allow developers to add image as linked image that will update when the image in the url is updated.

  16. Find&Replace tool

    Why don't you add the possibility to apply the Find & Replace tool only to a text selection, as is done in Microsoft Excel? This would be much appreciated!

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. Support to get or write selected slide in office 365 online powerpoint

    Please provide API for getting selected slide data as file in power point.
    I am able to get slide title and index using

    Office.context.document.getSelectedDataAsync(Office.CoercionType.SlideRange, function (asyncResult) ;
    I required to get that as bytes or file of selected slide.
