    My new 13 inch MBP with TB is having an issue, whenever I enter presentation mode on powerpoint a strange glitch occurs where some lines and black squares appear on the screen for a few seconds.
    This video shows the issue:



    Anyone with this issue or knows a solution?

    Thanks

    Not seeing that behavior at all. I use PowerPoint almost daily.
    What other software do you have installed? Any system extensions/control panel additions?

    Can confirm the problem. MBP 13" with TB, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD.

    I've also got other graphics issues when using Powerpoint.

    Do you have a second screen or projector hooked up?

    Which other issues do you have, I have not found any solutions on the internet.

    Aside from the flickering, I've also got funny patterns in the background, especially visible with pictures in Powerpoint, see attached file.

    Looks like faulty GPU stuff - but it could just be software related with Powerpoint maybe not playing well with the new hardware yet. This is the only place you're seeing it?

    I agree. No, it's not the only place; I've also got graphic problems directly after logging in sometimes.

    There does seem to be a problem with the new MacBook pros and PowerPoint there is no fix yet as far as I know.

    First impression: Sierra update seems to have fixed this issue. Let's wait and see.

    I just hope this gets fixed, I am only having issues on Powerpoint, but it's one of the softwares I use the most.
    Good to know it's not only me, what's strange is some people are not experiencing this issue so I just hope it's not Hardware related
