Visio 2010 Premium, Pro & Standard Add-ons List

Submitted by on May 5, 2010 – 10:02 am | | 47038 views 3 Comments

Need to know EXACTLY what comes in which edition of Visio 2010?

We’ve compiled extensive lists of all the add-ons that ship with Visio 2010 Premium, Pro and Standard. Read below the fold to see if the features you need will be in the edition of Visio you plan on purchasing!

Visio 2010 comes in three editions: Premium, Pro and Standard. Each addition has different sets of content, and figuring out exactly what comes in each edition can be tricky.

Microsoft has a nice explanation and break-down in this article: Visio Insights: Visio 2010 Editions. But if you need a precise list of what is included, that might not be detailed enough.

Perhaps you have developed a custom set of shapes that depend on a particular add-on. Or maybe you are just curious as to just how many add-ons come with Visio. Either way, these lists will be of interest to you.

About Visio Add-ons

If you’re not sure what an add-on is, this post might be a bit geeky. But you may still find it interesting to learn a little bit about Visio add-ons, anyway!

Visio is a very customizable and extensible application. When a particular diagramming type requires special functionality, an add-on program can extend Visio to fill in the gaps where built-in features aren’t sufficient. Many features and functions in Visio started life as an add-in, then get rolled into the product in later editions. Other terms for add-ons are “add-ins” or “plug-ins”. No matter what you call them, they are helpers that extend Visio’s capabilities.

If you buy 3rd party content and solutions for Visio, they may also ship with add-ons or add-ins that help you get the most out of Visio and the solutions’s graphical content.

Visio 2010 Premium ships with 95 add-ons, plus 4 more if you install the Visio 2010 SDK. Visio Pro seems to include just about every add-in that Visio Premium includes. But Visio Standard contains a significantly smaller number of them.

Many of the add-ons are started automatically with templates, called from shapes via the right-click context menu, or summoned via custom, solution-specific toolbar buttons and ribbons.

But some can be called directly by you! Just go to the View tab, and click the Add-Ons drop-down menu. Here we show how to call the Org Chart Wizard directly:

Check out the lists below to see all of the add-ons on offer inside of Visio. You might be surprised at what you find!

  • [...] course templates are not the whole story. Each edition ships with different sets of stencils and add-ons as well. If this article receives enough attention and comments, I will post a list of templates in [...]

    Dear WiseGuy,

    I’m using UML Background Add-on in Visio 2007. I’d like to access the object hierarchy to read out documentation from classes, etc into reports using VBA. I can get to the Addon as an Addons item(i) but Addon.Application doesn’t seem to be defined. Is the UML Background Add-on hierarchy hidden or am I looking in the wrong place?

    BTW the UML implementation is very good and useful.

    Dear Visio Guy,

    I have a UML model in Visio 2007 that I want to move to Visio 2010. I do not know where the UML add-on for Visio 2007 came from but I suspect I need yours. I don’t just need the stencils and shapes but also the Model Explorer. I have the Standard version but it looks like I need the Pro version. How do I proceed?

    -Ross
