Course Outline

  • Starting Out
    • To begin, participants will learn the basics of Visio: how to open and close it, how to use the interface, how to create a basic diagram, how to save and open drawings, and how to get help. We’ll also look at the new Backstage View.
  • Understanding and Customizing the Visio Interface
    • Next, participants will closely examine the ribbon interface, including the Quick Access Toolbar and the various interface elements. Participants will also learn how to customize the ribbon.
  • Overview of the Command Tabs
    • This section will give participants an introduction to each command tab. This section is intended to familiarize participants with various tabs so that they can easily find commands in the new interface.
  • Creating Diagrams
    • In this section, participants will learn how to start a diagram with a template, use basic editing commands, and set up and use guides. We will also explore how to edit, format, and arrange shapes.
  • Doing More with Diagrams
    • Now that participants have some basic Visio skills, we will look at some additional diagram tasks. Our topics will include formatting text with the Home tab, using the Text dialog, creating and modifying text blocks, and working with freeform shapes.
  • Printing and Viewing Your Diagram
    • This final section will teach participants about viewing a diagram in various ways, using zoom tools, applying finishing touches (such as spell check), working with themes, using the Page Setup dialog, and printing or e-mailing a diagram.
