  1. Option to Export Slides To Image And Video in Web Add-ins

    Hi All,

    I am creating a PowerPoint Web Add-in to export all ppt slides as an image and video format, To do this, I also saw the documentation from the URL "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/powerpoint/powerpoint-add-ins". But, I am not able to find a way to do this and it is also not very helpful.
    Can anyone please suggest a way to achieve this task?

  2. PowerPoint API

    Build out the specific host PowerPoint API with near complete parity to the control that was available in VSTO add-ins for PowerPoint. We have an add-in we want to build out in the new Web Add-in platform, but can't due to the extremely limited capabilities of the current Office.js API. You've had years to work on it, at least be more forth coming with where things are in development.

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  10. Insert Shapes in PowerPoint

    The ability to add shapes to a PowerPoint slide (like possible in the Excel API beta). Currently it's only possible to add either text or images. Thank you!

  11. 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.

  12. add API to instantiate a content add-in from a task pane

    Scenario: a task pane add-in displays a list of objects that represent content that can be added to a slide as a content add-in instances.
    Allowing the instantiation of a content add-in programmatically would facilitate creation of great user experiences.

  13. Ability to convert Add-In slide to image

    Hello,

    I would like to convert selected Add-In slide images to an image. For example to base64 or png format.

    Currently the JavaScript Api doesn't support this.

    For an old project I used the following method to get this done in a VSTO Add-In:

    public string SlideToImage(Slide slide, string filePath)
    {
    // Store images in the given path with slide name e.g. C:\Users\BramR\AppData\Local\Temp\2\slide_afbeeldingen.jpg
    var path = $"{filePath}\\{slide.Name}.jpg";
    slide.Export(path, "PNG", 1024, 768);
    return path;
    }

    Is there a way I could do this with the new Office Add-In generation?

    Regards,
    Bram

  15. Fix PowerPoint hangs related to DisableADALatopWAMOverride=1

    Occasionally, when a presentation is opened while a modal (add-in) dialog is open, PowerPoint seems to get into an infinite loop reading the following registry value:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Identity\DisableADALatopWAMOverride

    PowerPoint does not show as "Not responding" but effectively it is not responding to any clicks.

    We have only seen this behavior on machines where DisableADALatopWAMOverride was set to 1. This cannot reliably be reproduced but happens on different machines for different users. All of this seems to be related to Office 365 authentication.

  16. Fix PowerPoint's Presentation.SaveCopyAs method when saving to local OneDrive folder

    Presentation.SaveCopyAs fails when trying to save to the local OneDrive folder. Steps to reproduce (tested with 16.0.11001 and 16.0.10730):

    VBA:
    ActivePresentation.SaveCopyAs Environ("userprofile") & "\OneDrive\OneDriveSaveCopyAsTest.pptx"
    This does not give an error, but does not save the copy.

    C#:
    ActivePresentation.SaveCopyAs(Environment.ExpandEnvironmentVariables(@"%userprofile%\OneDrive\OneDriveSaveCopyAsTest.pptx"));
    This throws a COMException with HRESULT 0x80CD1001.

  17. Allow bundling a content add-in and a task pane add-in as one unit

    To extend PowerPoint with additional functionality and also add a new content type, we currently need to develop, package and deploy two add-ins, and task pane add-in and a content add-in. And the user needs to install two add-ins.
    To improve developer/vendor and user experience it would be really helpful if at least two add-ins could be packaged, shipped, marketed and installed as a unit that can be discovered and installed in one step.

  19. Open up more functionality for PowerPoint in Office.js

    The current PowerPoint capabilities for inserting text/images is very limited and it would be nice to be able to interact with the elements on a slide.

    My specific scenario is to move an old VSTO plugin over to the add-in model, where I iterate all text elements, and change the language of the text boxes. It's very common in Europe that the template is either in the native language or English, and content is then opposite of the template. A link to the VSTO can be found at https://officeaddin.codeplex.com/.

    If adding direct slide capabilities is a stretch, then a…
