  1. Show the footnotes!

    The problem with Visio is that it doesn't show its footnotes. So when I want to share the complete file with all it's content; I have to save it as PDF.
    I would like to see that footnotes are always to be seen (especially in Sharepoint).

    • Link icons not always practical

      In the current version of Visio online we see little icons beneath the Visio shapes indicating a link. As we have lots of customer specific shapes (that we hope will be displayed in future versions) where this might not be appropriate and different text positioning requirements it would be good to have an option to display these icons or not, or a possibility to manipulate them (select different icon, different size, different position); maybe even have several icons for different kinds of links.

      • Panning and Pinch Zooming

        Can we please have panning and pinch-zooming - navigating through diagrams using the old zoom control and browser scroll bars seems so old fashioned.

            After loading the Visio, we need the SharePoint list to read the Visio steps without duplication and when we change the Visio file and reload it, The SP list should get updated with the version history data, Please touch base to speak more about the design

            • Linking to shapes with Zoom

              In Visio on the desktop, one can link to any shape from another shape and specify the zoom level. Looks like that feature doesn't carry over to Visio Online
