How to Use MS Visio ?

Microsoft Visio (formerly known as Microsoft Office Visio), is a commercial diagramming program for Microsoft Windows that uses vector graphics to create diagrams. The current version, Microsoft Visio 2010 for Windows, is available in three editions: Standard, Professional and Premium. Unlike the core Office 2007 applications, Microsoft Visio 2007 did not feature the Ribbon user interface, but Microsoft Visio 2010 does. Visio is not developed for the Mac OS X or Linux operating systems. Due to a proprietary Visio file format, few Mac OS X or Linux diagramming programs can read Visio files. Omnigraffle Pro on the Mac can read and write Visio files.

Microsoft Office Visio is a software package used to create diagrams such as business process flowcharts, workflow diagrams, building site diagrams, database models, network maps, UML diagrams and state diagrams. Visio is considered a part of the Microsoft Office suite of products, but it is not bundled with any of the Microsoft Office packages. Visio comes in Professional and Standard

From the left-hand side of the screen in Visio, click on the name of the template you wish to use. For example, "Flowchart" or "Maps and Floorplans".

Select a template from the list of featured templates. Click on the radio button corresponding to the measurement units you wish to use (US units or Metric), and click on the "Create" button.

Click on the categories on the left-hand side of the screen to display options in a category. For example, "shapes," "arrow shapes" and "backgrounds." Click on the object you wish to add, and drag it to the workspace. Alternatively, items can be added by using the "Insert" menu item.

Use the "Format" menu item to add options such as text, fill, corner rounding and shading.
