  3. Create Female Icons

    As a male PhD student studying cybersecurity, I am making a scientific research poster in Visio 2019 and am looking for icons to represent a user in a cloud computing system. The user in "Web and Media Icons" is what I am looking for, but I cannot help to notice the figure appears male. In fact, most of the people shapes represent a "generic" person that seems to be male. It would be nice to see some female representation in the icon dataset.

  4. I tried to use this but it threw my suggestion away.

    I don't know what user voice is. I tried to use it and it dumped me. My suggestion is "Give us some customer support by people with a telephone that speak my language." You guys used to have the best applications in the world, but you have ruined them with ribbons and unnecessary crap like 'User Voice'. I have used Office and Visio for decades and now I spent a lot of money and got something I can barely use. The user interface is just awful.

  7. Org Chart Pictures: More flexibility for Assignments

    A) When adding pictures to an org chart, currently the org chart ignores the input of the column provided as a key for the pictures and always selects the "name" to find the respective picture.

    https://i.imgur.com/vbchI0t.png (see column selection which does not influence the behaviour)

    B) Please allow multiple people to have the same picture. This may be useful e.g. when giving people the same picture based on a certain parameter e.g. cat lovers vs. dog lovers / ... this can be useful to display information for the whole org chart in a simple way.

  8. 3D walkthrough

    Hello I would be great to be able to have a 3D walkthrough of my Visio floor plan (though the import from CAD is terrible) like is available by that Visio company.

    If I can use this for floor plan in my 3D sharepoint space that would be amazing too.

    now if only there was a InfoPath Online/Power App, that would be perfect.

  10. Visio Database Relationship Connect to Column

    It would be really useful to have the ability to show database connections on the diagram directly to the column this allows users viewing the documentation to directly see the connections without having to click each table

  11. Want to report a bug with Visio to PDF

    When in the new build (Version 2103 (Build 13901.20312)), you want to create a PDF from a larger drawing the scale is messed up. It set the X/Y to 5080 mm by 5080 mm and have a pickpoint in the upperleft corner zoomd in, so the lower part and right part of the drawing is not visible.
    For now I revert back to an earlier version of MS office (Version 2102 (Build 13801.20360)) where the drawing is convert to PDF wright.
    Although, in the newer version there was a bugfix for a other problem with Visio. So I would like…

  12. Edit or at least view Plan 2 files in Plan 1

    You currently cannot work on a file in Plan 2 and open it in Plan 1 or from OneDrive online. This causes issues when you have users across both plans since they cant work together.

  15. Not every org chart requires a photo!

    Bring back the plain org chart shapes. Not every org chart requires a photo, i.e. during reorgs and restructuring. We need plain org chart boxes too!

  16. Let it be a stand alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've done diagrams for a long time and to have to be logged in in order to run the application while on site is just not reasonable. In fact it blows!!! What do I do while on site? Take out my paper and pencil and make a drawing that I can later have to try and replicate when I can get online. Com on MS, take your head out of your ass!!!!

  18. Make importing excel workflows more user friendly

    Add Data Visualizer to Visio Pro 2019, in order to allow clean Excel data imports. Right now, the Quick and Custom import functions are useless.

  19. Stopping Automatic Behavior of Lanes and Pools in VISIO BPMN Template

    According to the BPMN 2.x standard, pools and lanes are two different things; I want Visio to treat them as such. Visio 2019 or 2020 (whatever the current version is) draws no distinction between pools and lanes; they're both Visio containers. If I place a pool on top of a lane, Visio wraps them both in a container that's a pool; it treats both the lane and the pool as lanes. If I drop a lane onto a pool, Visio treats them both as lanes and wraps them in a pool. If I drop a pool on top of a…
