Visio 2007 features and highlights

User interface updates

  • Several menus were removed in Visio 2007, providing a more streamlined user interface and making it easier to access important features.
  • The Getting Started window helps you find just the right template. Large thumbnail previews and descriptions of each template let you quickly identify the template that works for your diagram.
  • Templates are organized into simpler categories, with the most popular templates in each category appearing at the top of each category view.

Design features

  • The AutoConnect feature in many Visio 2007 templates automatically connects, distributes, and aligns shapes accurately for you—with only a couple of clicks.
  • The Themes feature, new to Visio 2007, takes the guesswork out of choosing colors and effects. With Themes, you can give your diagrams a professional touch with just a click of the mouse.
  • Themes replaced the Color Schemes add-on and are easier to use. You can apply them to a single page, an entire document, or built-in and user-drawn shapes.
