  4. Layer selection option

    When opening a Visio drawing from SharePoint 365, I need users to be able to turn on or off layers for our company floor plan so I don't have to upload multiple versions.
    We have one plan with Fire ; First Aid ; Hazards ; Networking etc and for different scenarios we may only wish to see certain detail or print/download certain details.

    I can do this on Visio Viewer for IOS so why not on the web?

  6. Locking elements on the canvas

    Hi,
    there is so far no way to lock elements on the canvas. It can get messy if there are some overlapping elements and such a function would be a great help in such a context!
    Thanks!

  7. Add 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' just like PowerPoint

    Add 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' just like PowerPoint. These are incredibly handy for controlling spacing.

  8. Make visio file hosted on Sharepoint full page without menu for the user

    It can be useful to have a visio graphic opened as full screen in a sharepoint library where a user can not delete it or have a edit button. EX: Show a business process with life data which change the shape.

  12. Azure icons / stencils are completely outdated

    I can't believe that I managed to get me a Visio Plan 2 only to find out that Azure icons are not only missing, but flat out outdated.

    I mean, Msft has been pushing Azure and I would at least expect their main product Visio to keep up with that.

    Visio is expensive compared to other options such as Lucidchart.

    It is clear to me by this User Voice channel that this product is not engaged with the community. No idea is being addressed / answered.

    My experience with Visio online is very poor and there are better options in…

  15. Containers available on web version

    Adding objects to containers is a common requirement for a good diagram. It does not appear to be supported in the current version of the web client.

  17. Shape search doesn't work anymore?

    I've got Visio 2016 Standard and discovered yesterday that I'm no longer able to search for shapes on the internet. The post at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/visio/cannot-search-shapes-feature says the feature has been discontinued. Do you have a suggestion for what I should do instead?

    The post's Microsoft'suggestion to search the Download Center for Visio didn't work since it brought up a link to buy the application but not any shapes. I found some shapes via Google search. That worked OK but I had to juggle a ton of stencil documents. figure the old search feature would have been much easier. I find Visio …

  19. Make files viewable in multiple Teams, and multiple Folders

    ...like gDrive! Having files is very 1990s, and reproducing the limitations of Windows in the cloud just make this dated. The same file needs to be viewable as latest, greatest in multiple locations (Teams and folders)

    We want to create automated organization charts with custom shapes. But it seems Visio 365 doesn't allow this anymore.
