  1. Visio Plan I - need a converter for legacy Visio .vsd files

    My company converted to Office 365, and I now have Visio Plan I. They advise the Visio Plan II is not compatible with our limited Office 365 version.

    We have 100's of older Visio files created as .vsd format. From my Visio Plan I browser, I can VIEW these files, but I cannot edit them with Visio online. I posted this question on general MS website, and MS Admin looked. There are no official converters available for me to convert the legacy .vsd files into a format I can use to edit. I don't want to use supposed converters off…

  2. Have you a template for Barker-style data models?

    I use the data modeling notation invented by Richard Barker and Harry Ellis in 1980. You can see it in "Data Model Patterns: Conventions of Thought", by me, David Hay.

    Can you provide a template for that notation?

  3. Web version to maintain page format.

    The world is opening and MSFT Explorer is no longer the only option. Notice that on an OS other than MSFT, the web version is bad, slow and will not maintain the page format making it difficult to use. I am not planning on changing my computer to a windows base OS, but I am contemplating other available options to make the same documents. They work pretty good when I tried their demos, and they are also web base.

  4. Add "Link to Tab" Functionality

    Similar to the "Link to Slide" functionality in PowerPoint, it would be nice to be able to link directly to a specific tab in a multi-tab drawing.

  5. Storyboards

    Hi,

    It would be nice if Visio supports the storyboarding collaboration proces.
    Together with the users, Functional consultants and UX experts, Visio in combination with Teams will have an positive impact of the efficiency.

  6. 2 ended skinny arrow

    I cannot find a normal looking (skinny) connector with an arrow that goes in both directions - I don't want the fat arrow. I feel like I must be missing something - surely there's a 2-direction arrow available that's just a line? Maybe because I am on a Mac?

  7. Add AutoSave as the other office apps have

    Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote all have AutoSave. A feature that is a life saver and that it is easy to get used to.
    In Visio this is not implemented for some reason.

    I have had a Visio document that I have worked on for 2 weeks, on a Windows restart, it was all gone. Last save, 2 weeks ago.
    The apps are all in the same family, I only save to Teams/Onedrive, I guess that right or wrong, I expected an AutoSave behaviour.

  9. Include extended font options for Visio online

    Visio for the web currently only allows Text font, colour, bold/italics/underlined options.
    Options like Superscript, subscript, strikethrough, Text-capitalisations etc. are not available. All these options are available for the desktop version. As Visio does not have a Mac version, the only way Mac users can access the software is using the web version

  10. Please add Spell check to Visio online

    I would like to see spell check within Visio. Alternatively, you could allow the browser to spell check within Visio.

  15. Provide a link to the visio online page in the embed iframe viewer

    The embed iframe viewer doesn't provide a quick link to the actual visio online page. I personally use the embedded viewer in Confluence pages and I would like other contributors to quickly access the visio source to make changes.

    It would be extremely useful to be able to access vendor specific stencil icons from the search menu.

  19. Add a 'New Note/Comment' function like in Excel

    so objects or phases can have collapsible annotation. Text box works, but can crowd chart. This addition would make for more interactive sharing. Expandable in Read/View Only versions.
