  1. Export to image

    Would be great to have this either for the end user or even as a developer API. At the moment we're having to rely on some code dating back to 2012 which doesn't work server side on Sharepoint Online..

    • When saying some features are not supported it would be good if it told you what features were in the diagram that are not supported.

      I am experiencing "features not supported" in a chart that only has 3 blank boxes in it.

      • Allow iPad Pro to use Visio Online Editor

        I need edit capabilities on iPad Pro, so I tried to use the new Visio Online Editor preview and found it doesn't work. Not that it can't work, it appears to be intentionally disabled.

        A message appears saying my device screen is too small (less than 10 inches), but it's not too small! My iPad Pro display is 10.5" and the larger one is over 12".

        Would love to know why this restriction is in place. I have a full desktop license.

        For the love of God, Satya does iOS demos on stage and uses an iPhone for his personal…

        • Allow for duplication of existing pages or creation of new pages

          I only have access to Visio online. I need to create a drawing with multiple pages and cannot. Please allow creation of new pages, or duplication of existing pages.

          • Visio online: open a linked diagram (in another vsd file) in the browser

            We have Visio files in a SharePoint library. When the user clicks on a file the diagram opens in Visio Online.

            However when you click in this diagram on a link (collapsed process) to another visio diagram, which is stored as another Visio in the same library then currently the only option is to download that file or open it in the Visio deskptop app.

            Please make it possible to use your browser to navigate through different diagrams, that are stored in different Visio files on sharepoint (is if they were webpages).

            • Add Align Shape Dialog

              Sometimes the green guiding lines are not working properly; in this situation the old align shape dialog would be helpful.

                • please add network/servers stencils to vision online

                  Many of Visio consumers are network and IT professionals.
                  it'll be very nice to have stencils in Visio online for those purposes as well.

                  • Integrate with OneNote - File Printout

                    Allow Online Visio documents to be embedded into OneNote notebooks by use of File Printout Feature.
                    Currently, the following error message appears:
                    There was a problem inserting the file. If you can open the file in another application, try printing the file to the 'Send to OneNote 2016' instead.

                    • Allow opening embedded Visio's into the Visio client

                      Today I cannot open an embedded Visio object into the Visio client, like I can with PPT and Excel. All I can do is edit the diagram in the object editor which is a poor tool to use.
                      So I end up having to store the Visio file alongside the main document. Extra work.

                      • Print View or Export to PDF

                        Would be great if we print it cleanly from Visio Online without all the extra browser stuff showing up. Or download as PDF so we can save locally and print.

                        • Embed a Visio document

                          Embed a Visio document just like you can with Word Online.

                          https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Embed-a-Word-document-in-your-blog-0faa0253-2751-44bf-8486-ea7837fe7db1?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

                          This would allow us to embed our documents into other systems and services like I can do with Lucidchart. I would look to switch products if I could do this.

                              Background pages are normally used for title blocks, etc, and do not contain any useful shapes.
                              They should be hidden by default, but be able to make visible by a setting or in code

                                Please provide a way of opening linked diagrams in the same tab. Currently, when we click on a link to open another diagram, it will be opened in a new tab, and many of our customers dislike ending up with a large number of tabs in their browser.

                                • Using relative hyperlinks and sub-addresses

                                  In the desktop version of Visio, we can use relative hyperlinks (such as "..\data-views\customer-data.vsdx"). That's very handy because we can copy or move whole sets of files to different locations and the links will always work, as long as the sub-tree structure remains the same.

                                  In Visio Online we have to use full paths, so if we move a set of Visio files to, say, a different document library, all links between those files must be changed. Could we have the ability to use relative links in Visio Online?

                                  Also, in the desktop version of Visio we can specify sub-addresses…

                                    Like the Visio Services web part, please can we have the ability to have Visio Online as a web part such that it allows customisation and connectivity to other web parts.

                                    (Very useful functionality that exists within Visio Services.)

                                        • Layers Visibility/Selection

                                          It would be very useful to have the ability to show/hide specific layers on the diagram as in the Visio interface, or provide a way to control this via a Javascript Mashup.
