  3. Please add ORM diagrams

    Please integrate ORM diagrams. They are also availiable for download online, but then inside organisation, everyone have to dowload it.
    There is multiple site like orm.net for example

  4. Add detailed documentation on Visio 2013 Del='1' connection point attribute from section N='Connection'

    We are VSTO add-ins developers (Visio 2007, Visio 2010, Visio 2013) and have hit a major software issue when we convert a .vdx file to the new .vsdx file format. When opening the converted Visio drawing, with Visio 2013, it keeps adding the Del='1' attribute on some connection points in the Visio drawing which disconnects the shapes.

    This problem is intermittent and has pop-up on more than 1 computer although on some other computers this works fine.

    I have already posted my issue in MSDN forums; here's the link for reference: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/6a43db8a-8339-4568-98b9-4ed999314368/visio-2013-keeps-disconnecting-shapes-by-adding-the-section-nconnection-with-rows-containing-the?forum=vsto

    We would love to find some documentation explaining…

  5. JavaScript to read Visio file's property

    Hi team,

    I'm not sure if the existing JavaScript for Visio Online allows me to read Visio file's property during upload process to SharePoint Online. I need to automatically extract Tags property in my Visio file to a SharePoint custom list.

  6. Prevent Visio from ever going to the W3.org website when opening SVGZ files

    As was identified as a bug by Microsoft, 28692 OfficeQFE, Visio would have a problem when opening SVG(Z) files when not connected to the internet (offline). This bug was hotfixed by Microsoft in this KB 2466309 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2466309.
    Last year, Microsoft rolled out an Update package that affected Visio 2007 and 2010 versions - which makes Visio to connect to the hans-moleman.w3.org website. This behavior introduced a latency/delay of approximately 1-2 minutes. This has affected several of our clients that uses the Visio application to convert SVG(z) file to PNG. Can this behavior be reverted back or simply - remove…
