Microsoft Visio Professional 2013 is a superb software solution for creating complex projects. It permits to make and share diagrams of various levels of complexity. It contains renovated templates, styles and shapes. Due to enhanced functionality, the app provides users with an opportunity to work on one and the same diagram in various teams.
The most important features of Visio Professional 2013:
• Improved data file format
The application offers new file format both for Open Packaging Conventions standard as well as for the XML documents. The format is supported by Visio 2013 and Visio Services in Share Point Server 2013. Besides, it is possible to download projects just to a SharePoint Server library.
The application has a suite of new 16 themes. The themes are fully compatible with shape effects. Due to the usage of these effects, diagrams receive unexpected dynamic looks.
• Quick Styles
Every new theme provides a set of styles. One can apply styles to shapes while keeping the whole look. It is also possible to use styles via the Shape Styles gallery.
• Shape change
The app contains a shape replacement API that permits to take one or more shapes from the stencil plate, keeping fragments from the original shape.
