Powerpoint not opening

Occasional Visitor

Hi, I have a subscription from my university for Microsoft office 365 and am using MacOS Big Sur. However, my PowerPoint doesn't work (The application keeps bouncing in the dock and later shows not responding). I have tried to reinstall the office several times but the same problem persists. Apart from that everything works perfectly fine (Word, Excel, Outlook).
