Removed from Visio 2010

What’s Removed from Visio 2010:

* ShapeStudio
The ShapeStudio tool available in previous versions of the Visio SDK has been removed from the Visio 2010 SDK. The status bar in the Fluent UI focuses on higher priority status items, many of which have the added utility of being actionable.
* Find Shape feature
The Find Shape server feature previously available in Visio enabled users to search for shapes installed on Microsoft Web sites. Additional, new, and updated shapes were then made available together with those already on the local computer. The Find Shape feature no longer connects to the Internet to look for additional Visio shapes as did in previous versions. The Find Shape feature no longer connects to additional Web servers that an administrator might have set up to host additional shapes. Instead, users must download the content from Office Online. Users can access download instructions by using the Find Shapes Online command on the More Shapes menus. With this change, the Find Shape feature will display search results found only on the local computer. In Visio 2010, the user can toggle the user interface on and off by using the Search for Shapes toggle available on the More Shapes menu.
* Stencil docking
The redesign of the Shapes Window in Visio 2010 is now optimized for the vertical orientation of the window. Therefore, in Visio 2010, stencils are docked on the left or right of the Shapes Window with docking in the top and bottom positions no longer allowed.

Migration Considerations

This section provides information about features and changes that administrators should consider when migrating from Microsoft Office Visio 2007 to Microsoft Visio 2010. A noticeable change is that Visio has joined the rest of the Microsoft Office products design and uses the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface (UI). In Visio 2010, you navigate the features by using the ribbon, the Quick Access Toolbar, and the Microsoft Office Backstage view.

* Process Repository
In Visio 2010, you can easily manage collections of process diagrams that are typically stored on network file shares. You can ensure that you are editing the most recent version and updating a user if any changes were made to the process diagrams. For many administrators and managers who supervise these document repositories, ensuring diagrams comply with internal standards and tracking all the processes involved can be overwhelming. The Visio Process Repository, a new site template that is included with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, uses the collaborative features in SharePoint Server 2010, including:
o Check in/Check out
o Versioning
o Workflow

These features integrate with several new process management features in Visio 2010. The result is that, in a few clicks, a SharePoint administrator can create a Visio Process Repository that is preconfigured for easy storage and management of Visio process diagrams. A Repository site contains a library for documentation, a task list, and a discussion board. The Process Diagrams document library is designed to store processes and comes prepopulated with several templates that can be used to create new process diagrams.
* Publish a process diagram to a repository
You can check a diagram for validation issues prior to publishing by using the Validation feature. When you are ready, you can save the document back to the repository by using the Save to SharePoint billboard in the Backstage view.

Because the Process Repository is built on top of SharePoint Server 2010, you can take advantage of other SharePoint features. For example, you can:
o Set up workflows.
o Set up automatic e-mail notifications when documents change.
o View revision history for a given document.

Visio Services

* Visio Viewer
Visio Viewer 2002 and Visio Viewer 2003 have been discontinued. If you use Visio Viewer 2007, ensure that you have the latest upgrades or you can move to the Visio 2010 (Beta) Viewer. The Visio 2010 Viewer has all the functionality of the previous viewers, and includes all the security fixes.
* Customization and options
In Visio 2010, there are many settings and customizations that can be made to personalize the user experience. For more information, see Plan customizations and options for Visio 2010.
* VBA settings migration
In Office 2010, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) 6.0 was updated to VBA 7.0. VBA 7.0 settings were reset to their defaults after migration instead of automatically repopulating. This occurred because the registry settings for VBA are in a different hive in Office 2010, as shown in the following table.
