Visio Corporation's four Visio products are used as standard equipment in offices and design shops for creating all sorts of graphical representations of information. They're handy for laying out interiors, defining organizational hierarchies, and documenting processes. Visio 5 for Dummies explains all of the key Visio concepts and shows you how to work with this software.
Author Debbie Walkowski begins with a basic overview of simple Visio tools--including stencils, drawings, and some simple techniques for working with both--before quickly showing how to print. This initial coverage will solve many common Visio problems, while later chapters provide considerably more coverage on drawing with lines and shapes, stencil manipulation, text, and connectors.
The author ably explains the power of layers before she demonstrates how to define your own stencils, masters, templates, and styles--effectively showing you how to create a library of personal or business-standard Visio resources that will save you and your colleagues time in the future.
Walkowski focuses her discussion on Visio Standard, which has a user interface shared by the Professional, Technical, and Enterprise editions of the product. (The more specialized versions have additional features but stick to the same basic concepts.) The Professional, Technical, and Enterprise versions receive the author's attention only when differences arise, and she catalogs each version's stencils alongside the Standard shapes in the appendix. --David Wall
