  1. Alpha value in color picker resets to 100 all too often

    When choosing a color, if you pick an Alpha value other than 100, and click/tab to an RGB value, the Alpha value resets to 100. After you get what you want, if you go back into the color chooser again, and do nothing, but click off the dialog, the Alpha resets to 100 and you have to hope you remembered the right value and go back and set it again.

  4. Ability to display a label based on another column

    Rather than the object label displaying the ID, it would be useful to be able to display a label based on another column.

  9. Position BUG

    With Visio Rack device schemes, there is a position bug. If selecting in PBI Visio Visual, highlighting has big position offset.

  10. "We can't open your file in Visio Online because it exceeds the shape count limit" error when trying to load a Visio Org chart in Power BI

    I have an org chart with just over 100 entries that I created through an Excel file that is an export from SharePoint. I can view this chart in Visio Online without any issues, but when I use the URL link to bring the diagram into Power BI using the Visio visual I receive the above error.

  11. Allow changing font type of text overlays

    Currently, text overlay is in Segoe UI font. and there is no way to change the font for Text values displayed in the Visio Visual (even though the Title font can be changed).
    Visio Visual should allow changing font to use Symbol, Wingdings, Webdings, etc.

  13. SharePoint login prompt

    When a user (who is not logged into SharePoint) is viewing a Visio visual in a PowerBI report, they are usually prompted to sign into SharePoint which is intended. However sometimes they just receive a message saying "Sorry, something went wrong
    Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))" with no place for them to login. Is there anyway you can fix this so it asks them to sign in 100% of the time instead of just giving them an error message? Thanks!

  14. Ability to drill to a detail page in power bi via drill through filters from the id field in the visio custom viz

    Ability to drill to a detail page in power bi via drill through filters using the id field in the visio custom visual.
    I want to use the Visio Custom Visual to show my network on the overview page of my Power Bi report, then select a node on the custom visual, right-click and drill through to a detail page for that node.

  15. Shape count statistics in Visio Visual

    Word has Review \ Proofing \ Word Count button that opens a dialog with simple statistics.

    The Visio Custom Visual has a shape count limit, but it is too difficult for a Visio user to know what this is. I suggest a Shape Count button and dialog to assist with this.

  16. Hyperlink on Visio no longer working

    Hi,
    Just few weeks back all our hyperlinks on visio were working on power bi. However, those hyperlinks have stopped working now.When user clicks on the objects, they just get highlighted. User can still open the hyperlinks by right clicking on visio shapes (box, lines etc.) and from the pop-up menu, selecting "Open in another tab". But I want the ability to navigate by clicking on the object rather than right click and select menu option.

    Could you please help me fix this problem?

  17. Allow to color different shapes on different criteria in one visual

    Lets say we have a visual of office created in visio and two tables (datasets) one considering employee performance (some kind of grade) and second one lets say date when monitor was manufactured. It would be great that we can color men and monitors based on two different criteria (grade for men, and date manufactured for monitors). That would definitely be useful, maybe not so much on this example as in general.

  19. Allow non-interactive layers to be rendered in grayscale

    Allowing a document to be rendered in grayscale would enable visual queries to receive clearer attention. For example, if you have a floor plan and want to higlight free desks, then the desks could render in green and the rest of the diagram in gray(scale). This is possible in Visio currently, but means that every shape needs to carry both its 'normal' RGB and its grayscale equivalent. This is probably better attached at layer level and could then be used in Desktop, Online and PowerBI.
