Enable more basic edit function between files -such as copy and paste!
Visio online is really not very useful as is. It does not show basic functions, such as gridlines, to help line up content. It does not allow basic 'cut and paste' from one Visio document to another (for creating similar but other diagrams), it does not allow cut and paste of images to a Word document (so to utility of the whole software is about zero). I really do not understand what value this product has - as is, it is rather in-useful... (Also, it does not save properly. I lost a file that I spent much time on, because for some reason when I saved a second edited version, it changed both...)
Thank you for valuable feedback. I’m glad to inform that we have now enabled the functionality to copy your diagrams from Visio for the web to other Visio files opened on web or within Microsoft Teams and continue editing with the copied shapes and diagrams.
You can now also copy your diagrams as image from Visio web to your documents, presentations, or any other place of requirement.
