Microsoft Visio 2016

Microsoft Visio is another application and part of the Microsoft product range.  Microsoft Visio is used to create simple or more (much more) complicated diagrams.  Visio has a wide variety of built-in shapes, objects and stencils for all kinds of diagrams. It utilizes layouts, diagrams, and charts.

If you have the time and are willing to do the extra work you can make your own shapes or import them.

With Visio Viewer, you can open, view, print or distribute Visio drawings (files with a .vsdx, .vsdm, .vsd, .vdx, .vdw, .vstx, .vstm, .vst, or .vtx extension) to team members, partners, customers, or others, even if the recipients do not have Visio installed on their computers. Visio Viewer is downloaded from the Microsoft Office website support.

View a drawing with Visio Viewer

When you open a drawing with Visio Viewer, the drawing appears inside an Internet Explorer window. If a drawing has more than one page, the pages are available as tabs along the bottom of the viewer. How cool is that!

Visio is a graphical and drawing application that helps you to visualize, explore, and communicate complex information. Visio transforms complicated text into Visio diagrams that communicate information at a glance.

3D shapes and stencils

Visio works mainly in two dimensions, but it includes some three-dimensional (3D) shapes. Here are a few ways to find them.  Some diagram types, such as FlowChart, Maps, and Network, have built-in stencils of 3D shapes.

Look online to find 3D shapes and stencils, search the Microsoft Download Center for Visio shapes.

Some people and companies outside of Microsoft are also creating 3D shapes. After you download a stencil of shapes, copy it to the My Shapes folder so you have it available.

So indulge—in so much excitement, for so little! Please take advantage of booking and completing the Visio course.
