  2. Allow control of more UI features via the Visio Online API

    It would be very useful if the Visio Online API gave us more control over which built-in UI components are visible to the user.

    We're currently working on a project where we're wrapping the Visio Online viewer and then integrating some additional features and data provided by one of our apps.

    In order to provide a more integrated user experience, we would like to be able to at least control the following features via a settings in the API:


    • Which controls are visible in the main toolbar (e.g: breadcrumb, Document Name, buttons, etc)


    • Whether the hyperlink pop-up window is shown…

  4. Ability to Change Shape

    Once you drag or select a shape on the drawing you can't change it. I don't always pick right the first time :)

  6. Readable resolution for data linked diagrams: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution.

    Apparently not a bug: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution. Higher resolution required - or at least a readable resolution.

  11. button for fit to width and/or jump to 100% zoom, top left of document

    Can you please add a button to Visio Online to resize the chart to the width of the window. Alternatively, please add a button to display the document at 100% of size, and aligned to the top left of the chart.

    Currently any Visio documents I view in Visio Online open by default with the entire chart visible. My company has made flowcharts for us to be read from top to bottom and some of them are very long and narrow.

    So for example, with my browser window maximised, a typical flowchart might open at 16% zoom. I then have…

  14. Make it widely available. Not just for PC

    Visio is for PC. I would like to see it working everywhere like Creately diagram software - http://creately.com , an online tool. Web based version would solve the issue.

  15. Allow home users to purchase or license Visio and/or Visio Online

    I want to use Visio at home for personal projects without a work or school account. I already pay for Office 365 Home. I don't mind paying $5-6 per month extra for Visio Online, but I am not allowed to even try.

  16. Visio Azure A/D Network/System scan tool

    Give Azure Active Direcrory an added tool that can scan your cloud and on prem system and network.

    Once this tool indentifies each device it then places it into a live online diagram.

    This would be a huge plus for every single Sys Admin/ Network admin.

  18. How about making the website/wireframe templates available in the trial

    I needed to see if the Visio product was capable of creating the website mockups I need to do using the Wireframe-Website template and stencils but the online trial version does not make that available

  19. Follow hyperlinks with a simple mouse-click for all types of shapes

    For simple shapes, CTRL+Click will select the shapes and a click will follow the hyperlink.

    For groups of shapes, where the hyperlink is defined at the group level, Ctrl+Click will select the shape (group), but to follow the hyperlink, I have to open the shape info pane and click on the link there.

    I'd like to suggest that a simple click always activates the link, and Ctrl+Click always selects the shape (or the other way round, as long as it works in a consistent way for all types of shapes).

    The instructions say this happens when grabbing a corner. It doesn't.
