  1. 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.

  2. 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).

  4. Feedback button hard to find

    It is really unclear from the release notes that the feedback button is the second one from the left when a Visio file is being viewed. Why on earth wouldn't this be available from the main page (documents list) as well? Frankly, some of the icons are hard to identify. The right-hand one is easy (full screen) but the second-from the right apparently zooms back to full page view, which is unclear (and should be disabled when already in that mode, right?).

  5. 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.

  9. Full screen mode: allow swiping from sheet to sheet

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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. How to get out of search mode?

    The search button opens a search bar, but there's no obvious way to get back from searching without doing a search. I stumbled on it - click on the document again, but that's not intuitive. There should be a cancel option somewhere in the search bar.

  16. 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…
