  1. Fix Unwanted User-Defined Shape Data Value Truncation in VSDX Drawings

    Problem. A user-defined shape value is unexplainably truncated to 0.00E0 in some (but not all) shapes when saved as a .vsdx-formatted drawing.

    Desired Outcome.The original (correct) shape value is 1.00E-7 when saved as a .vsd drawing and should be the value for the .vsdx drawing.

    Observation. In Visio 2013 + 2016, when a .vsd drawing with a "bus" shape is saved, closed, and opened as a .vsdx drawing, the user-defined shape value for failure rate changes from a numerical value of 1.00E-7 to 0.00E0. This behavior does not occur with every shape. For example, the failure rate for "Bus, substation"…

  2. Show rulers and scale of diagrams/objects

    I can't tell how large my diagram is when viewing it in the browser because there is no measurements. When clicking on objects, I'd love to see their dimensions as well.

  11. Allow dynamic data binding

    I have a diagram linked to a SharePoint list. How can I dynamically bind my diagram shapes to different data rows? For example with a list web part on the same page, how can I make the diagram respond to the selected list row? Since creating a custom data provider is not possible in SharePoint Online, what is the alternative? Is this possible through the API?

  12. Use visio online from Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint

    We have Visio Files stored in a SharePoint list and would like to use them in a Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint. We tried some situations but keep having issues with cross domain scripts, because the Provider Hosted Application lives on an App Web which has a different domain (https://<tenant>-<guid>.sharepoint.com) than the host web (https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com).

    Is there already a solid working solution for this?

  17. Display entire text for shape info, don't auto hide the text after a few seconds.

    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.
