  1. Make it possible to de-select one or all shapes from the API.

    Currently there's no option to deselect all shapes. Deselecting one shape at a time will automatically select another one. In our scenario we would like to 'reset' it programmatically to have no selection at all, like when it's in initialized state.

    While we use the Visio embedded in our application we would like to use both navigating from within and outside the visio. We would like to keep the Visio selection in sync with the application itself to give the users a uniform experience whatever the way they navigate.

    • 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 an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

        I LOVE this Visio Online program!!! I've been a Visio user since the early days (~ 20 years ago???), so since the new company I work for doesn't have the desktop version of Visio available, this is a great alternative for me.

        However, when an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

        • Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%.

          Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%. I posted a timeline in a section of my SharePoint site, and the default view doesn't allow you to see the content. I have to manually zoom in.

            • 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.

              • Support Entity Relationship Diagrams

                It would be great to see support for the creation of crow's-foot Entity Relationship Diagrams in Visio Online. It's possible to do a basic ERD without crows-foot relationship representations with the SDL > Divided Process, but it's not very easy and the lack of crows-foot notation is an issue.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • Add Align Shape Dialog

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

                            • 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).

                              • 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.

                                  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.

                                    • Add comments in VSD Visio file

                                      If I will open the VSDX file then I will get an option to view the comments & reply the comments in Sharepoint o365. But If i will open the VSD file then no comment option available. Like to suggest this communication option is really help people

                                      • Hide Background Pages by default in Visio Online

                                        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

                                        • Open linked diagrams in the same browser tab

                                          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.
