  1. 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.

  2. Paint 3D

    Intigrate Paint 3D functions in Visio so users can create/ insert 3D models (inserting like in Word but as a shape).

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow Ink and Reviewer pages in Visio Services

    There is no support for "Ink, Reviewer pages, Macro, OLE or other objects in Visio Services".  Macro and OLE are understood because of security implications, but Ink and Reviewer pages would be very useful to allow further reviewing comments and other perspectives within the browser.
