  1. Animated movement

    Animated movement - In a leadership brain-storm meeting, one would like to manipulate shaped (unconnected); meaning, if we have 10 process in a column and when a shape is moved from the 6th position to the 3rd position, the 4th and 5th move down and number are reorder accordingly; and the same goes for the 2nd process moving to the 4th, the 3rd will move up. you can see the time and effort saving this will render.
    Best Regards,
    Abe

  2. Add Visio to the right click menu to create a new Visio file directly in a folder

    It is possible to create Word, Excel, Publisher documents, etc. directly in a folder through use of the right click menu "New".

    I would like to see Visio added to the "New" menu, so Visio files can be created directly in Explorer.

  3. Fix broken Visio publishing into HTML page


    1. Open any Visio diagram.

    2. Selected menu to save it as HTML page.

    3. On settings of HTML export I select: "Host in Web page" option "Basic" instead of default option "None".

    Web page is saved fine. However, it does not open in Internet Explorer. JScript error appears. Detailed description of this bug with all screenshots is written here:

  8. Store the font for the shape by name not ID

    When you set a fonts other than Arial it is stored as a font ID in the shape, if you open that font on a different PC the font ID don't always line up and you get a different font.

  14. Fix the boundary around metafiles within Visio

    When copy/pasting an enhanced metafile image it should result in an image that is identical in size and boundary to the original Visio geometry being copied. Currently, the pasted image is larger than the original and it contains an extra margin of space around the image that was not in the original.

  15. Make Visio easier to get and install

    I couldn't add visio to my office 365 home account. I had to create a business account, even though I'm not a business. I couldn't install Visio on the PC I wanted to because my office was installed with an "MSI" and so Visio pro subscription cannot be installed. I can't uninstall office because of the license I have I need to use the license given to me. Installing Visio on a different computer won't give me access to the connections I need access to. Microsoft makes it impossible. I'm looking for Visio alternatives, but there not as good but…
