  2. legend resize

    I would like to point that it would be interesting to be able to resize a legend in height. We can only resize it in width for now.

  5. Support for language translations

    Currently if a user wants to translate a Visio drawing into another language, they have to export to xml and figure out which words/phrases need to be translated. A means to export text to an xlf file for a translator to work on and a means for importing the results.

  6. Follow the user's order when placing people in an orgchart rather than randomly.

    Currently the orgchart places people at random locations. Use the order that the user has in their original data source

  7. Enable 3rd party COM Addins in the SharePoint Designer Visio OCX

    additionally please consider to enable all SP designer dialogs within Visio. There should be no reason to import the worklow in SP Designer. Simply use Visio for Workflows.

  9. 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.

  10. Can you please enable Visio Editing via the file viewer which is currently not possible.

    At present it is not possible to edit visio diagrams online which have been published in to sharepoint unless you has previosuly created these diagrams using the online Visio (though office 365).
