      • Remove embed border

        Embedded Visio files currently have a thin black line bordering them. Can this be removed? Many of the locations that we embed to have the same color background as the Visio file does, so this is unnecessary.

          • Please add networking shapes to visio online. This is a great platform to collaborate on high level design details for complex IP networks!

            It would be a huge help to have shapes or icons for high level IP network components. Having common components of modern networks would be HUGE!! Router, switch, firewall, load balancer, fiber, Ethernet, SD-WAN components, Data centers and company HQ and branch icons would be awesome!

            • cross functional flowchart

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

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                        Visio Online Plan 1 now has three categories dedicated to network diagrams, Basic, Detailed, and Azure, with many shapes to help you with creating professional network diagrams. Please try these out and let us know your feedback.

                      • 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.

                        • Customize the Diagramming Canvas (with HTML/JavaScript Mashup API)

                          Providing capabilities that are available in Visio Services, especially the creation of HTML overlaps and JavaScript Mashups. Very important business feature to be able to customize the live diagramming canvas.
