  1. 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…

    • Can't import Visio template libraries

      The available drawing objects is extremely limited. Even third party browser based tools allow one to import Visio libraries. I want to sketch out our Azure cloud infrastructure and I can't do that effectively without the right objects. Funny... either Microsoft doesn't want us to use Azure or they don't want us to use Visio Online... please decide.

      • 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!

        • 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

                • View comment bubble in Visio file preview

                  I would like to have the comment bubble permanently displayed on my Visio preview file. Right now, I need to click "Comments" to see which boxes have comments. Is there a way to do this?

                        • button for fit to width and/or jump to 100% zoom, top left of document

                          Can you please add a button to Visio Online to resize the chart to the width of the window. Alternatively, please add a button to display the document at 100% of size, and aligned to the top left of the chart.

                          Currently any Visio documents I view in Visio Online open by default with the entire chart visible. My company has made flowcharts for us to be read from top to bottom and some of them are very long and narrow.

                          So for example, with my browser window maximised, a typical flowchart might open at 16% zoom. I then have…

                                    Apparently not a bug: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution. Higher resolution required - or at least a readable resolution.

                                      • Follow hyperlinks with a simple mouse-click for all types of shapes

                                        For simple shapes, CTRL+Click will select the shapes and a click will follow the hyperlink.

                                        For groups of shapes, where the hyperlink is defined at the group level, Ctrl+Click will select the shape (group), but to follow the hyperlink, I have to open the shape info pane and click on the link there.

                                        I'd like to suggest that a simple click always activates the link, and Ctrl+Click always selects the shape (or the other way round, as long as it works in a consistent way for all types of shapes).
