PowerPoint Designer is a new feature in Office 2016/Office 365

PowerPoint Designer is a new feature in Office 2016/Office 365. Designer improves your slides by automatically generating design ideas that you can choose from. While you’re putting content on a slide, Designer works in the background to match that content to professionally designed layouts. Designer will also automatically suggest options for you when you’re online and you add a picture  to your PowerPoint presentation. Finally, Designer notices when you write a timeline or a bulleted list of “steps” on a slide, in which each one begins with a verb. In each case, Designer reacts by offering to turn your list into a SmartArt graphic.
