  3. 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.

  4. Windows 10 UWP

    It's nice that you are making a version for iOS, but it would be nice if Microsoft ever put their own platform first for a change, and show other developers that Windows is actually worth developing for.

  6. 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.

  9. 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).

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Improve the PDF insert

    Most architectural floor plans are distributed in the PDF format these days as the DWG file format has expanded in complexity and scope. A floor plan in PDF already has the plotted page size and scale making insert into a Visio drawing much less problematic than DWG. However the current version of Visio does not do a good job of inserting PDF files generated from DWG and does an even worse job of printing the PDF background with Visio shapes on top. There are software products available that can convert the vectors in a PDF file to vectors that can…

  16. Shortcut menu button

    Instead of having several, single function shortcut buttons, for example Netflix, Amazon Video, ect you should instead have one singular button that can bring up a menu of apps that you have assigned to it. For example, on the remote I got I only ever use 2 of the shortcut buttons provided, the rest of the buttons only ever get used when I’m on YouTube or Netflix and I accidentally push them, which tends to get really annoying. Also maybe allow us to attach the sleep timer to it for quick and easy access.

  19. 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.
