There are various additional items in this version of Visio as compared to the 2010 version. These themes are incorporated to the new shape effects. This is what we are talking about earlier about the dynamic design of this version. So, you can expect that your diagrams will be much more lively and understandable when you use this version. 16 new themes could be accessed in the Design tab in the ribbon. Then you must select your desired theme in the Theme gallery.
Each of the themes offers a set quick style. These techniques could be applied to the shapes. This new feature could be accessed in the Home tab. Select the shape where you want to use the style. Then, you can choose the style from the gallery. There are several options for this, and you can see all of them when you click the down arrow on the photo. This feature can make your diagrams more lively and pleasing in the eyes of the viewers.
There is a minimal need for dragging shapes when you have to change shape. Visio Standard 2013 now has a shape replacement API. This allows you to swap one or more forms which are contained in a stencil while still retaining the local values in the shapes. It is now easier to change shape by clicking a shape and then selecting for the replacement. You can choose to change one shape at a time or several shapes all at once. This feature is very much helpful for designers who are not sure about the shapes they have used. It would be easier to make quick adjustments in the diagram with this kind of capability.
There is a new command in the Visio 2013 which allows you to copy the page within the same document. It also has a new method of reproducing a page. You may choose to have a copy of a page but not the Page objects. This will then give you a new Page object without the properties of the original. This feature can help diagram designers to create a series of similarly structured diagrams quickly. For example, you can create a page which you can use as a template. You just have to duplicate this page and then provide the properties on each new page. With this, you can lessen the work when you have to design uniform structures of the diagrams on each page. Plus, it minimizes confusions.
Visio now allows you to insert values in geometry or formulas that will be multiplied by the width and height. It supports relative geometry in the ShapeSheet. This feature allows you to specify the values of the shape or objects depending on the values you have entered.
You can now be connected to the SharePoint server and save your documents. As always, others may access your work and allow them to make the necessary revision. This feature is a must for projects involving several individuals. Now, the upgrade in this cloud service is the ability of the server to refresh the diagrams when there is an update in data. Copying templates and shapes in SharePoint is still allowed in the system.
