  1. Please add autosave to Visio!!!

    Visio is an O365 subscription as is my OneDrive (docs and desktop are backed up and syncing). Please, for the love of God, enable the autosave of drawings to OneDrive. Why wouldn't this be the functionality to match the rest of the office apps already?

  3. Add wavy/sine lines/shapes

    Add options for wavy/sine lines, either through line/arc tool or through shapes. Ideally, the line should be customizable both with "height" of the sine and "number" of wave. For the with, it should give the option to specify fixed number or fixed sine width when changing the line length

  4. Provide the Crime Scene Investigation template in Japanese

    The Crime Scene Investigation template for Visio is currently available in the US. It would be great if the template would be available in Japanese

  6. Make Visio user-friendly by making it similar to the likes of vector editing tools

    We engineers use this a lot for adding complex circuit diagrams in documents. The reason Visio is useful is because it can be embedded directly into office documents. But the problem is that I find Visio extremely outdated in usability (which is why I'm making the effort to voice my frustration here). .

    Firstly, making a line is so difficult - the line is either straight or a circular arc. There's no (easy) way to make arcs of other types.

    It is very difficult to draw up things - adding points to existing lines and manipulating them is difficult

    Locking…

  7. Co-authoring in Visio desktop client

    At this time (august 2020) co-authoring in Visio is only possible in the web client. It would be great if this would work in the desktop client as well

  10. Offer Microsoft PowerPoint format as Export option

    Users are frequently torn between making diagrams in PowerPoint vs. Visio, because Visio is much more powerful, but end users can't edit them once the image is transferred to PPT. It would be extremely useful to be able to make a diagram in Visio and export it as an editable PPT/PPTX file.

  11. Create 3D rendered view of a 2D floor plan

    It is very useful that Visio can create 2D floor plans, import CAD drawings, and link Excel data to shapes.

    However, a greater functionality would be including a view window (or separate windows with URL for posting in SharePoint site) showing the 3D rendered model of the 2D floor plan.

    Here is an example from another software company.

  12. Timelines scaling and auto line-up

    If you have more then 1 time-line in a drawing have an option to automatically align the time line i.e. if 1jan2020 is in one time line and as well in the other those dates align Horizontally (or ask via pop up at what date they should align). That brings me to my second point scaling, if you have more than 1 time line where size it that a year is (e.g.) 1inch long, there should be apply to other time line option so that the other selected time-line years are also 1 inch long

  13. Make text in angled text boxes selectable/searchable after saving as PDF

    In Visio 2016, any text box that is completely vertical or horizontal (0°, 90°, 180°, -90°) is selectable and searchable after saving as a PDF however, if the text box is at an angle other than any of the above angles, the text is not selectable or searchable after saving as a PDF.

    This was possible with Visio 2010.

  16. Make the Mobile wireframes available for Visio 2019

    The mobile/web wireframes are currently only available for Visio Online Plan 2 and not for Visio 2019 Pro which is kind of strange.

  18. Ability to make existing connector dynamic/static manually

    It would be useful to have the ability to change the type of an existing connector to make it dynamic or static to change from one type to another, without having to delete the connector and create a new one.
