Visio Handles through the Ages
Microsoft changes the look of Visio’s user interface from time to time. Most of the uproar came for Visio 2010 with the introduction of the dreaded Ribbon.
But Microsoft has also made changes to Visio’s shape-manipulation handles, thereby rendering millions of painstakingly-created screenshots on websites the world over instantly obsolete, and confusing users everywhere.
As a reference point for users using older and newer versions of Visio, and just out of plain curiosity, I’m rehashing the look of Visio shape handles for Visio 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. Have fun!
