How to turn on 'Show VSTO Add-in user interface errors' in Microsoft Visio?

Microsoft Word has this option to get extra debugging info for Office VSTO solutions:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/vsto/how-to-show-add-in-user-interface-errors?view=vs-2019

I cannot locate this option in Microsoft Visio in this location or under Add-ins in the Options menu.

Is there any way to turn this on in Visio? Thank you for your help!

Hi @VBNETDeveloperVSTOmore-5406
What version of Visio did you use?
I found this feature is not available in Visio, you can also get the same result from this thread:

In my opinion, you can try to give a feedback about this feature in Visio:

Thanks for your reply.
As emizhang replied, this feature is not avaliable in Visio currently.
it's better to submit feedback to the corresponding development team.
For feature request, you could also post a new thread on Visio - Tech Community.
Thanks for your understanding.
