  1. import shapes

    Want the ability to import shapes like you can in the desktop version of Visio. Or be faster about adding shapes that are requested (like AWS shapes). You added Azure shapes, but we also use AWS. draw.io has both AWS and Azure and I am forced to use that program due to I am using a Mac (no desktop Visio) and Visio Online doesn't have AWS shapes.

    • Clickable Overlays in Visio Online App Part

      It is not currently possible to have clickable image overlays in the Visio Online app part. This was functionality supported in legacy Visio Services and we desperately need it back!

        • Search, find objects through multiple pages

          It would be great if we can do a search or find objects through multiple pages in Visio Online. Currently, you can only find objects if you are on that page where the object(s) is/are located.

          • Visio Online 'Editable' App Part

            We need the ability to edit Visio Online diagrams within an app part so we can have custom functionality linked to the edits being made.

            E.g., connect two shapes in the Visio Online diagram canvas > press a submit button > kick off an MS Flow

                • Allow control of more UI features via the Visio Online API

                  It would be very useful if the Visio Online API gave us more control over which built-in UI components are visible to the user.

                  We're currently working on a project where we're wrapping the Visio Online viewer and then integrating some additional features and data provided by one of our apps.

                  In order to provide a more integrated user experience, we would like to be able to at least control the following features via a settings in the API:

                  * Which controls are visible in the main toolbar (e.g: breadcrumb, Document Name, buttons, etc)

                  * Whether the hyperlink pop-up window…

                    • New file template management for SPO document library – Visio files not working!

                      The new SharePoint file template management solution as referenced in the article below does not appear to work with Visio files.

                      https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Announcing-new-file-template-management-for-document-library/bc-p/257976#M2731

                      When clicking on Add template, it is possible to upload and see templates appear for all other office file types (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), however Visio files do not get added when performing this operation.

                        • 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"…

                            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.

                                  • If a Visio diagram in a SharePoint web part has only one page, don't show 'page 1' in the tool bar at the bottom of the web part.

                                    Allow the tools on the tool bar to be configured as hidden so that the UI is cleaner, and the diagram looks like an embedded picture.

                                          Visio Online would benefit from some of it's predecessors (Visio Web Access Web Part) features, such as:

                                          1) Fit to screen, remove border, remove title, hide sheets

                                          2) Default to specific Index or Page on load
