  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Make ActionTags available

    We use ActionTags extensively for showing both warnings and informational messages to users about shapes. It would be very useful to have these online too.

  8. Add touch zoom and scroll to Visio online

    If you use a device that supports touch it is really awkward to have to use the pan&zoom window or zoom dial and the scrollbars for moving around on the diagram.

  9. Include Visio Online Plan with O365 Dev Subscription

    The office 365 developer subscription, bundled up with Visual Studio Enterprise subscription (Office 365 Enterprise E3 Developer Trial), does not include a licence to Visio Online. Further to this, you are unable to add a paid subscription. You get the message 'You are not eligible to acquire this product.'

    I really want to create a proof of concept Visio mash-up but cannot!

  10. Adding TAM stencil

    Could you add TAM stencil as your default shape library?
    http://www.fmc-modeling.org/tam_stencils
    This is a very basic shape for SAP colleagues and relevant security experts.
    And also that's why we are buying Visio Online.

  11. Configure embedded Visio toolbars

    Our company uses Visio diagrams (currently in the web part, figuring out how to switch to the embed code) in SharePoint sites as site navigation. The old web part allows us to turn off the toolbars within the web part so the diagram appears to just be on the page on its own, with no controls to zoom or change tabs, etc. We'd like this same capability with embeds done from Visio Online.

  12. 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.

  16. In visio Graphic put again "Click" on link at the place of "ctrl click"

    Since beginning september 2020, MS change a feature in Visio web that you need to use "ctrl click" on graphic at the place of "click" to open a link behind a shape., and when you use "ctrl click" the opened link is open in a new tab but the browser does no more switch automatically to this new tab. Before this change, a single click was possible on a shape and the browser switch to the new tab automatically.
    This make a navigation solution based on visio useless or business graphic less attractive. Power apps is not a solution to…

  18. Visio Online diagram embedded on SharePoint modern page - shapes with hyperlinks should change the mouse pointer on hover.

    If we use the embed web part to show a Visio diagram (saved to a document library) that has shapes that have hyperlinks, the mouse pointer remains the default if the user hovers over the shape. In Visio the mouse changes to show that there is a hyperlink. Without changing the mouse pointer, users do not know they can click the shape.

  19. multi-page flow chart creation with Data Visualizer

    I'm working with large flow charts in Data Visualizer and need a way to split the content across multiple pages.

    I am currently splitting my flow chart into multiple tables in Excel so I have one table for each page. This is rather clunky and is really annoying to move things across pages.

    I'd like to have ONE table with an add a column for "page" or "section" that I can use to drive multiple pages or multiple containers.

    With this set up I'd be able to move a process step from page 2 to 3 with a few changes…

  20. Need a stencil or template to do electrical drawings such as single line diagrams, and electrical schematics. Need electrical symbols.

    Need the ability to do single line electrical drawings or electrical schematics. There are some templates there that are geared more towards networking systems. These do not have the correct terminology or the correct symbols. Other than that, systems works great.
