Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

I have managed to replicate this. Reader view works fine by slide show/presenter view throws that message when in edit mode in Teams. Of course, works fine in PowerPoint.

 

Recommendation is to

1.) Raise as a ticket to Microsoft via the 365 admin portal

2.) Raise as a bug here on Teams Uservoice: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public (add item with BUG: prefix)

 

I can't find any other source that confirms it is a bug, but I can't imagine that it would be by design.

 

Hope that answers your question - and would be great if you could confirm the response from Microsoft after raising.

 

Best, Chris
