    Requesting to view the entire text for value in the shape Data under Vision Online -> Shape info.
    Also requesting that the data displayed should stay (not be hidden after a few seconds) as long as the mouse does not move out of the area.

  3. Improve the opening of desktop files in Visio Online

    I have lots of Visio files that were created in the (Windows) desktop version of Visio. So far, NOT A SINGLE FILE I have will open in Visio Online, with no feedback as to what features may be blocking.

    An improvement would be some sort of feedback, providing information about the feature(s) that are blocking the file from opening, so I can then clean the file in the desktop version.

    Alternatively, an export function to the Online version in the desktop version that strips all possibly offending features would also help.

  4. Insert Hyperlinks

    I can not find a simple way to insert a hyperlink anywhere in the online Visio. If this feature does not exist, it would be nice to have. If it does, it would be nice to easily get to / understand.

  7. Allow document auto-save to be turned off

    Include a setting in Visio Online to allow the user to turn off the auto-save feature. My prefered mode would be to only save a document when I fully intend this to happen. This would allow me to freely open and close document safe in the knowledge that they would retain there original state. Under this scenario, if the auto-save setting were set to false, a Save button would become visible in the UI and the document would only be saved if this button was pressed. (The usual warnings could also be surfaced if you try and exit with the…

  10. Create a UWP Web Wrapper

    I think a fairly simple UWP app that is essentially a web wrapper would be really useful. The UWP could be set as the default editor for Visio. If you open a local visio file it would offer to add the file to OneDrive.

    It could also offer a list of recent documents both inside the app and on the live tile. This would mean you don't have to write a full on app for editing as all that would be handled in a web view. This would just allow you to take full advantage of native features in Windows…

  11. Add an Offline Mode similar to Outlook Web Access

    OWA for Office 365 let's you work offline if you enable offline mode in the settings. It would be great if this could be applied to Visio online also, for those occasions where WiFi is patchy.

    Even if you could just view existing diagrams would be a good start

    We would like Logic Gates to be available on the Online shapes so that we can use them for Electrical and Computer Engineering Applications.

  16. Minimize Visio Online title bar area

    It would be helpful to be able to minimize the area in the browser where the "Visio Online", other Microsoft Services and your login name is shown, along with a big black bar. This takes up a lot of valuable real estate when working with a large drawing and forces more panning when zooming in.

  17. Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%.

    Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%. I posted a timeline in a section of my SharePoint site, and the default view doesn't allow you to see the content. I have to manually zoom in.

  18. Support Entity Relationship Diagrams

    It would be great to see support for the creation of crow's-foot Entity Relationship Diagrams in Visio Online. It's possible to do a basic ERD without crows-foot relationship representations with the SDL > Divided Process, but it's not very easy and the lack of crows-foot notation is an issue.

  19. When an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

    I LOVE this Visio Online program!!! I've been a Visio user since the early days (~ 20 years ago???), so since the new company I work for doesn't have the desktop version of Visio available, this is a great alternative for me.

    However, when an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

  20. Allow iPad Pro to use Visio Online Editor

    I need edit capabilities on iPad Pro, so I tried to use the new Visio Online Editor preview and found it doesn't work. Not that it can't work, it appears to be intentionally disabled.

    A message appears saying my device screen is too small (less than 10 inches), but it's not too small! My iPad Pro display is 10.5" and the larger one is over 12".

    Would love to know why this restriction is in place. I have a full desktop license.
