Visio Viewer is equipped to open, view, or print Visio drawings; the best part being that you don’t need Visio installed on your device. However, it comes with certain limitations.  You cannot edit, save, or create a new Visio drawing with Visio Viewer. In order to achieve that, you need a full version of Visio (Looking For Professional Version of Microsoft Visio) installed. If you create and edit diagrams in a full version of Visio and send those diagrams to someone who doesn’t have Visio, consider having that person use Visio Viewer to view your diagram. Download Microsoft Visio Viewer All Versions for Windows 10, 8.1 and Windows 7.

Microsoft Visio Viewer – Print a drawing from Visio Viewer

When you print a Visio drawing with Visio Viewer, it prints from your web browser, not from Visio.

  1. Set up your view of the diagram with the same zoom factor and center point in your browser window that you want to use on the printed page.

If you want to print your entire drawing, view your entire drawing in your browser window and center it in the window. (Right-click the drawing > Zoom > Whole Page.)

  1. Open your browser’s Page Setup options to specify your printer settings. In Internet Explorer, click Tools> Print > Page Setup. Use your browser’s Print Preview option to see how the diagram will look when printed.

If it doesn’t look right, close the Print Preview dialog box and re-center the diagram and change the zoom setting to match how you want it to look on the page.
