Help us make Visio more Awesome!

Dynamic grid functionality is missing if we open Visio via RDP session (W10 OS + Visio 2013/2016 any version). Reprosteps

Dynamic grid functionality is missing if we open Visio via RDP session (W10 OS + Visio 2013/2016 any version). Reprosteps:

1.-Take 2 machines and do an RDP session from machine A to machine B (Visio 2013/2016 needs to be installed on machine B)
2.-Open Visio 2013/2016 after establishing the RDP session.
3.-Make sure that the “Dynamic grid” functionality is not turned off (It should be enabled by default).
4.-Try to check if the mentioned funcionaly works by adding more than one shape on any drawing.

Actual result: Dynamic grid is not working.
Expected result: Dynamic grid should be working.
Workaround: The same does not happen if we previously opened Visio before establishing the RDP session.

It has been tested internally on SR 118091919040266. It seems to be a visual cosmetic malfunction that can only triggered with RDP sessions.

    The Live Dynamics feature controls this and that option states that it is not available in a remote desktop session.
