Lost a feature I used a lot!

Starting with PowerPoint, for MAC, versions above 15.27 (161010) you can only insert a single audio file to play on one single slide of a presentation, or to play across all slides of a presentation. Ugh! Why did the development team lose their vision about this feature? The main feature setting PowerPoint above Apple Keynote was the capability of inserting more than one audio file in a single presentation and to allow the audio file to play across multiple slides of a presentation, but not all slides of a presentation. This allowed you to create a PowerPoint file for an entire program without having to switch between several individual files. For example, you could insert several audio files in a single presentation and have each audio file play across multiple slides in the same presentation file. Audio file one could play across slides 3-14 of 85 slides. Audio file 2 could play across slides 17-26 of 85 slides, etc.




Most pros

I bought this a month ago. Mostly user friendly although I can't find the highlighting feature. Its convinent and easy to use. Definitely worth my money and I think it Is clearer than a press and more organized.




I needed this

My previous laptop had this software and I have many lectures and programs on it. I needed the update for my newer Mac to view them.




Easy to use but...

I am livid that I cannot load this onto two of my four computers. For the price, at least 2 should be allowed to have the software on it. I cannot plan my lecture on the big screen then load it onto my laptop to take with me?????? Not right. I should have stayed with Keynote.

Can I run Timeline Plug-in?

With PPT 2016 for MAC Do I need VMware or parallel to run the plug-in

Looks Great on a Mac!

The differences from PC to Mac are easy to translate. I prefer using it on my MacBook.




Remarkably easy to use

I bought and downloaded the Power Point for Mac about 10 days before I presented a clinic at a model train convention and had a great presentation ready for the show. It was easy to do, very similar to other graphics programs on the Mac. I actually enjoyed putting the presentation together.




Easy to use and lots of nice features

I bought it for a project that needed updated software so it would work with what my clients have.




Doesn't work with El Capitan

When I installed El Capitan (OS 10.10.4) Powerpoint stopped working right. It wouldn't shift to presentation mode, the top menu bar disappeared, and it froze. So I just bought the new version of PowerPoint thinking it would give me a newer, functioning, and compatible version for El Capitan. Nope. None of the problems have been resolved. I still have a non-functioning PowerPoint.
