    Bring back the capability that was in Visio 2007 to reverse engineer database entity relationship diagrams. Also, simplify connecting to OData.

  3. Review the BackStage. Recently Used Templates should be on top

    Most customers use one (non-standard) template (VST). They are not interested in all the other templates available in Visio. They do not want to acces their templates using "Open other Drawings" nor search online for them. They just want to use "their" template.

    In Visio Pro for O365, search for CMMN and see the Online results.

  5. Fix the rendering of AutoCAD objects and support the latest AutoCAD file formats


    • In Visio 2013 AutoCAD objects do not display clearly.


    • Users must currently save AutoCAD drawings in AutoCAD 2010 format or earlier for Visio to allow them to be opened.
