    • 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…

        • cross functional flowchart

          Add the Cross Functional Flowchart swimlane shapes to Visio Online! Flowcharts with swimlanes are much easier to understand.

          • Should have a note that Visio doesn't work with Mac IoS

            On your online service it does not show that the software will not work with Mac IoS.

            • Make it widely available. Not just for PC

              Visio is for PC. I would like to see it working everywhere like Creately diagram software - http://creately.com , an online tool. Web based version would solve the issue.

              • Use visio online from Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint

                We have Visio Files stored in a SharePoint list and would like to use (show and interact with) them in a Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint. We tried some situations but keep having issues with cross domain scripts, because the Provider Hosted Application lives on an App Web which has a different domain (https://<tenant>-<guid>.sharepoint.com) than the host web (https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com).

                Is there already a solid working solution for this?

                • Allow home users to purchase or license Visio and/or Visio Online

                  I want to use Visio at home for personal projects without a work or school account. I already pay for Office 365 Home. I don't mind paying $5-6 per month extra for Visio Online, but I am not allowed to even try.

                  • Visio Azure A/D Network/System scan tool

                    Give Azure Active Direcrory an added tool that can scan your cloud and on prem system and network.

                    Once this tool indentifies each device it then places it into a live online diagram.

                    This would be a huge plus for every single Sys Admin/ Network admin.

                      • How about making the website/wireframe templates available in the trial

                        I needed to see if the Visio product was capable of creating the website mockups I need to do using the Wireframe-Website template and stencils but the online trial version does not make that available

                        • 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).

                          • Enable more basic edit function between files - such as copy and paste!

                            Visio online is really not very useful as is. It does not show basic functions, such as gridlines, to help line up content. It does not allow basic 'cut and paste' from one Visio document to another (for creating similar but other diagrams), it does not allow cut and paste of images to a Word document (so to utility of the whole software is about zero). I really do not understand what value this product has - as is, it is rather in-useful... (Also, it does not save properly. I lost a file that I spent much time on, because…

                              Hey guys, Im on a new project in my company and I need to make some things in Visio 2016.

                              Ive already wrote a code that creat a property "Setor" in all shapes on the page, but I need to fill this property with the name of a container the shapes are into.

                              The code that Im using is this:

                              Private Sub Setorizacao()

                              Dim visShape As Visio.shape
                              Dim visPage As Visio.Page

                                    • Allow line control nodes on connectors to snap to other connectors

                                      When placing lines that lay along the same path as another there seems to be no way to snap overlapping lines to each other, or to the start/end nodes of other lines.
                                      It would make things neater.
