  1. I suggest you return the reverse engineering tool to all Visio users (not only online versions).

    Return the reverse engineering tool to MS Visio as an add-in for non-Online customers...please.

  3. PKI Signature on a Visio Drawing - not signing the Macro

    I am requesting the ability to display a PKI digital signature on the drawing (i.e a signature line), so that when I print the drawing, or send the drawing for a second concurrence, the digital signature is displayed. We use Visio to create packages which have multiple drawings, each which require two signatures. We could convert these drawings to PDF to digitally sign, but that requires us to save the file each time. this process takes too long, so we print and sign the documents. We would like to go paperless, but cannot if this process is required. The stencil…

  4. Domain city maps and Application centric diagram with Data vizualizer

    HI,

    I have moved to a new company where there is EA software but luckily them Visio licenses. I have just discovered now the Data vizualizer form Excel and I am wondering if it would be possible to have the same for Application centric diagram and Application city maps.
    Somehow it would be a first step towards building an EA software based on some commonly spread applications.

    BR

  6. Visio Electrical Circuit diagram symbols should conform to the NEC codes as published by the NFPA.

    Visio 16 Professional: The Electrical Circuit symbols do not conform to the NEC codes as published by the NFPA.

    Please change the symbols to conform to those standards. Otherwise, Visio is useless. We have to turn to other software.

    Offer Visio 365 as a non-commercial add-on to Office 365 Home and Personal. Many non-commercial users will enjoy using Visio for school projects, home business presentations, and personal planning.

  9. Visio for Office 365 Home

    Please add the ability to add Visio to the Office 365 Home subscription service. I use Visio for multiple personal projects and would like to be able to integrate them with other Microsoft products, Word and Powerpoint. Otherwise you will be losing a customer and I will find another alternative. I do not care that much for Google Docs it does allow me to integrate with the Drawing application and it is free.

  10. Hello. I don't see where one can easily add a watermark to a visio document.

    I would like to put a watermark, such as "CONFIDENTIAL" on a design done in Visio.

  11. HEX colour input field.

    I'd really like if I could input colour values as HEX, it makes it easier to acquire colour palettes and schemes and bring them into Visio using a simpler format then entering in 3xRGB values.

  15. Provide option to disable Research

    The Research pane pops up constantly, slowing performance and taking up too much space, when highlighting text. The only way to disable is to uninstall or via code. Provide users an option to disable this service while working, or make it available on demand rather than automatic.

  16. Update all visio feedback from the feedback button in the software to link to Microsoft Edge rather than Internet Explorer

    This is a no brainer, is it not?

    Is it 2017 yet where you live? :D

    And please make it available to everyone, not just 365 customers.

  17. Incorporate "Dragon NaturallySpeaking Nuance" for mapping and facilitating in real-time.

    Allow user customization for how you conduct the session, e.g. "Process, text . . ., decision, text" etc.

  18. Provide column and row filtering for SharePoint Lists using Data Selector, just like Excel

    The Data Selector for Excel and Access allows for row filtering and column selection. This should be allowed for SharePoint Lists too.

  19. Locked Layers in Visio Services

    Do not allow selections of shapes on Locked Layers in Visio Services.

    Seems inconsistent that in Visio you have the ability to prevent the selection of shapes that are on a Locked layer, but this behaviour is not carried through into Visio Services.

    There are shapes that we lock in Visio from selection for a reason - would be good to have the same in the browser.

  20. Offer full Mobile support for Visio Services

    Currently mobile rendering is not suited for mobile resolution screens. Allows consumers to have a better viewing experience of diagrams on their mobile devices without having to view in desktop mode.
