  1. 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 …

  3. Add "Link to Tab" Functionality

    Similar to the "Link to Slide" functionality in PowerPoint, it would be nice to be able to link directly to a specific tab in a multi-tab drawing.

  4. 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.

  6. 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)

  8. Put all the Office 365 Icons into Visio Online

    The icons for Visio are seriously lacking in the Visio Online. In the least, all the Microsoft icons should be available within Visio Online where servers, SharePoint, Office 365, and other application icons are concerned.

  10. Increase shape limit beyond 1000 shapes on one page

    Currently, with Visio for the web, there is a limit of 1000 shapes per page. When using complex shapes from the shape library, very few elements are permitted. With this change, the limit of 1000 shapes will be increased.

  12. Include extended font options for Visio online

    Visio for the web currently only allows Text font, colour, bold/italics/underlined options.
    Options like Superscript, subscript, strikethrough, Text-capitalisations etc. are not available. All these options are available for the desktop version. As Visio does not have a Mac version, the only way Mac users can access the software is using the web version

  16. 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.
