Well folks, this Visio Guy and his main squeeze have been busily preparing for a year abroad, where we’ll be sharing our Visio knowledge with you from exotic locations such as Fiji, New Zealand, Australia and Asia. Now you can understand why we’be been preparing all those Geographic Map Drawings!
So Visio 2007 has been released, and…well…I’d love to say that I’ve been pounding the pavement, doing a ton of research, and have dug up the latest scoop, but the guys over at Visio Insights have written a nice post entitled: What’s so great about Visio 2007? that anyone’d be hard pressed to beat.
There’s some nice screenshots of the new datagraphics and pivot charts that are available in the new version, as well as links to Visio 2007 new-feature videos and other online resources. So go on over and have a look, and tell ’em Visio Guy sent you!
Arno Nel has published links to a really cool set of Visio drawings that relate to Microsoft SharePoint on his blog: Arno Nel 2.0 – The Information Worker. The diagrams illustrate models, scenarios, and flowcharts for planning, designing and deploying SharePoint installations.

I’ve created a new Visio Art Page. You can find a link to it at the top of every page on this site, as it is now a standing feature of Visio Guy. Hope you enjoy!

This page will try to bring together as many resources regarding Visio and AutoCAD issues as is humanly possible. I’ll keep updating it as new information comes in, so check back from time to time!
On a positive note, it looks like the AutoCAD compatibility in Visio 2007 is vastly improved! One of the experts on the subject has informed me that beta 2 of Visio 12 has solved many of the issues from previous versions of Visio.
While it is possible to create good looking graphics with Visio, it was not designed to be an illustration tool. That doesn’t seem to stop nuts like me from trying to use it as one! But let’s just say that in my quest to create beauty, I occasionally miss the advanced tool or two.
One such example is the skew tool. With a skew tool you could, for example, easily draw nice rectilinear shapes, such as these dice faces…
