The series goes on to explore the way shapes are inserted into drawings, how connections are made and the types of connection recognised by Visio.  We cover the new aspects of the Visio 2007 version including the new AutoConnect feature, and look at how basic flowcharts can be created quickly and easily.

We include a brief overview of themes, look at how shape stacking order is handled and discover how to create maps.
