  1. 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?

    Thanks!

    • 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.

        • 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…

            • Readable resolution for data linked diagrams: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution.

              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).

                  • 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?

                                    • 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.

                                        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

                                          SharePoint workflows used to integrate with Visio, allowing developers to create a Visio Diagram that was easily understood and easily implemented as a workflow. It would be cool if you could build out a Microsoft Flow in Visio.
