Floating, reshapeable, self-customized command toolbars
Along with Styles, the FLOATING, SELF-CUSTOMIZED TOOLBARS in Word and Excel were among their most valuable features. Performing the usual functions without immediate visual, local access to numerous commands--and, instead, having to go to fantastically time-and-energy wasting pull-down menus, or dreary, multiple tab accessed toolbars anchored at the top of the page--is pathetically absurd. (Just a few examples among maybe 100: in Excel the 4 command icons for Insert Rows and Columns, print area, wrap-text or not. In Word, the several icons for creating or deleting specific borders in tables for cells, columns, and rows.) It would be great to have the same for Powerpoint. With styles and floating custom toolbars in Word, for example, I can take the worst mess you ever saw and brilliantly format it in practically no time with all kinds of headings, indented paragraphs with or without REAL bullets (NOT MS imaginary ones), etc., etc. Without floating, customized, reshapeable toolbars, I consider the new Mac versions seriously degraded applications.
