    I've been really looking forward to using MS Office better in iOS.

    I recently tried PowerPoint on my Air 2 and found that it has improved quite a bit. I really like being able to draw shapes, and the ability to move them around is much better just using my finger. I'm encouraged that it might be possible to do serous work in the MS Office suite with the 9.7 IPP.

    How about using the Pencil to draw, move and manipulate shapes in PowerPoint? It seems like it might work really well, but I'd be interested in hearing from those who have done serious work in PowerPoint with the Pencil.

    Sorry, I have tried to do serious powerpoint work and it's just too cumbersome on the iPad pro. The main issue is not having a trackpad and finding some of the options that I'm use to in Windows difficult to find on the iOS version.

    It's kind of frustrating. I'd really like to be able to do some real work on an iPad. Seems so close to the day when I can leave the laptop at home.
