  1. Linking to shapes with Zoom

    In Visio on the desktop, one can link to any shape from another shape and specify the zoom level. Looks like that feature doesn't carry over to Visio Online

  2. Custom crop for PDF export

    It would be very helpful to be able to crop the page before doing a PDF export so as to remove all the blank space.

  6. Open from file explorer into Visio Online

    I save diagrams to my OneDrive, my OneDrive is synced onto my pc. I don't have Visio client installed. I'd like to double click the files and get the file to open in Visio online ready for editing.

    The best I can do now is right click > View Online. But this opens in the reader view and I then have to click 'Edit Diagram' and 'Edit in Browser'.

  7. 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 …

  9. Can we get an "Open" option on the Dashboard page for Visio 365?

    There does not seem to be an option to open a Visio doc in the opening dashboard of the online 365 Visio. You have to open a blank document (which creates a blank visio doc in your OneDrive you didn't even want) before you can get an 'Open' option. Even then you have to have it in your OneDrive, you can't grab local from your computer.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Shape Diversity

    I couldn't choose to get the Desktop version for work and the process mapping shapes are lacking. I need shapes for Value Stream Mapping, Fishbone diagrams, and other Lean Six Sigma mapping techniques. I could make a VSM in Excel but that would be infinitely more time consuming.

  20. Add move varitey to shapes

    It would be great to see a higher selection of shapes built into Visio for network device and other appliances. Adding a more modern representation of network technologies would go a long way. The ability to show a Layer 2 and Layer 3 switch and the different infrastructure that the devices are being used in would be a bit better with more shapes.
