  1. Pre Processing Phase for Visio Web Access for Visio COM Addins

    It would be great to have a chance to manipulate the shapes before they are displayed. Premier use case is to update the title to a user specific language. This might have been possible with the Silverlight solution in 2010 but it is impossible now.

  3. Multi-language mastershapes

    Same NameU but multiple names for multiple languages. As a feature AND in all your stencils. Think of "CFF-Container" and friends.

  4. Visio Live with an extension strategy (FlowChart and BPMN is mostly needed)

    We are very often in highly competitve situations, when people are asking for modelling on the web / Zero installation solutions. We do not need full fledge Visio. How about generating a modeller from a fixed stencil? No acces of ShapeSheets allowed.

  5. legend resize

    I would like to point that it would be interesting to be able to resize a legend in height. We can only resize it in width for now.

  8. Enable 3rd party COM Addins in the SharePoint Designer Visio OCX

    additionally please consider to enable all SP designer dialogs within Visio. There should be no reason to import the worklow in SP Designer. Simply use Visio for Workflows.

  9. Fix the boundary around metafiles within Visio

    When copy/pasting an enhanced metafile image it should result in an image that is identical in size and boundary to the original Visio geometry being copied. Currently, the pasted image is larger than the original and it contains an extra margin of space around the image that was not in the original.

  10. Make Visio easier to get and install

    I couldn't add visio to my office 365 home account. I had to create a business account, even though I'm not a business. I couldn't install Visio on the PC I wanted to because my office was installed with an "MSI" and so Visio pro subscription cannot be installed. I can't uninstall office because of the license I have I need to use the license given to me. Installing Visio on a different computer won't give me access to the connections I need access to. Microsoft makes it impossible. I'm looking for Visio alternatives, but there not as good but…

  11. Can you please enable Visio Editing via the file viewer which is currently not possible.

    At present it is not possible to edit visio diagrams online which have been published in to sharepoint unless you has previosuly created these diagrams using the online Visio (though office 365).
