  1. Update Visio 2007 with the current VBA object model.

    There are many code features not available for older versions. Some companies/users don't have a need to update or don't want to embrace the ribbon, it would be nice to access new features, e.g., points along a curve.

  4. Status bar API

    It could be interesting to be able to use rogrammatically the Status bar of Visio especially for using the progress bar during long operations. It will help in better UI integration of third party Addin solutions.
