Visio 2016

Hi all,

We have recently installed the latest Visio 2016 on Windows 10 laptops.

There is something very peculiar with this version of the Visio which can not be fixed by normal options:

There is a problem with the Guide lines:

1- the guide lines once placed at a certain area of the page disappear once picked from the rulers.

2- the guide line disappear once moved and are not shown

3- the only way to make the guide line appear is to un-tick and then tick the guide line button under View-Show option

This is very inconvenient and there is no obvious way to correct this.

I was wondering if there is a solution or a work-around to fix this bug.

Many thanks for your help.
Kind regards



Look at that answer in same thread Visio Professional 2016 Guides Disappear When Moved

Hi MitchBud,

This issue has been fixed in January channel of updates (Build 7870.2XXX) for Click-to-Run deployment, which should be available to you by around mid of March.

Please update your Visio app once the January updates are out to get the fix for this issue.
