  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!

  2. 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…

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

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

  9. 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?

  11. 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

  13. 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.

    The code that Im using is this:

    Private Sub Setorizacao()

    Dim visShape As Visio.shape

  16. Allow picture resizing to keep aspect ratio

    The instructions say this happens when grabbing a corner. It doesn't.

  17. Allow dynamic data binding

    I have a diagram linked to a SharePoint list. How can I dynamically bind my diagram shapes to different data rows? For example with a list web part on the same page, how can I make the diagram respond to the selected list row? Since creating a custom data provider is not possible in SharePoint Online, what is the alternative? Is this possible through the API?

  19. Internet Explorer 11

    Embedded Visio diagrams currently have a message on them in Internet Explorer 11, that the browser is unsupported. Can IE 11 be supported? This is one of our officially supported browsers internally and it would be difficult to switch.
