      I can only find the viewer. Where's the Visio editor?

      • Provide a customisable template library

        This would allow me to organise all of my own visios' using meta data (leaving the visios in each of the specific customer folders). Then I would have virtual folder for high level architecture, component diagrams, network diagrams etc.. I would like further views to allow me to slice and dice by industry etc..

              • Improve opening .vsdx files from OneDrive for business on iOS

                When I try to open a .vsdx from OneDrive for business on iOS I get an error saying that the file can’t be opened. “Something went wrong”...
                I have the example file if you want to try to reproduce the error.

                • Make an android version

                  I don't want to have to get my surface pro out just to make a diagram, an android app would be so much more useful.

                  • Enable opening Visio drawings in Visio Viewer from Outlook for Android/iOS

                    When using Outlook managed with Intune MAM, deeplinks will not work as they remove these types of URLs due to security concerns. As a result, we can't open Visio drawings attached in an Outlook email. The Outlook team from Microsoft support has confirmed that this is by design and that this type of hyoerlinks within the app might be disabled in the near future. Would like to see this feature enabled.

                    • Open on desktop seamless handoff

                      When working on a documenten offer a "hand off" button to open or view the document on the PC on the same network and account. Same for documents opened on the desktop. Open on smart device.
                      This would be a seamless experinence.

                            I hate apps that use only icons and have no text descriptions. I get lost and don't like using those apps. please include the option of visual text descriptions, for us old folks that cant read hyraglyphs.

                                When in full screen mode and the document has multiple sheets, it would be nice to be able to swipe from sheet to sheet.

                                • Make it possible to annotate drawings - like the 'Draw' function in OneNote/Word/Excel/PowerPoint etc.

                                  Viewing drawings is great but the ability to annotate drawings within the app on iPad would be beneficial so that working ideas can be explored and then transcribed once back on Visio desktop client.

                                  Functionality should be exactly like the 'Draw' ribbon menu from all the other iPad Office apps.

                                  • Add support for Google Drive in Places

                                    So far it looks like only local, One Drive and One Drive Pro are supported for opening Visio files. As a heavy user of other online services as well, adding support for Google Drive, DropBox, etc. would be really useful. I suspect you can integrate these from the application's own sharing APIs (i.e.: if Google Drive is installed, you get a hook for it).

                                    • Mail the Visio (to a printer)

                                      I can now see the Visio, but to be able to use it, I need to either print or send it. My printers at work support email-printing, not AirPrint. So, a PDF output to an email would be very valuable.

                                      • Visio is crashing complex pages on my 9" iPad Pro

                                        I have a 9" iPad Pro with the latest update from 9/12 of Visio. I can open files from local (uploaded via iTunes) and OneDrive, but several of them are crashing when loading. These are not large or complex documents. If you have a direct messaging method, I can share the files with you for testing.
