Editors' Review

Microsoft Visio is a professional drawing tool for creating charts, graphs, diagrams, engineering drawings, networks, layouts, and schedules to use in reports, documents, and presentations. With an extensive array of top-quality templates, Visio is both easy to use and sophisticated enough for professional applications, much like Microsoft's other Office tools. Visio is part of the Office suite and integrates with it in Windows, but it's not included with most Office editions; it comes in separate releases in several versions. Visio Professional is available in a free but limited trial version. All of Visio Pro's features work, but you can't save or modify files. The trial is only active for a limited time, and a nag screen asks for a Product Key every time you open it. But if you're wondering if this fairly expensive tool is worth the cost, start with the trial version.

Visio Pro's interface resembles earlier Office layouts rather than the newer ribbon look, but it's still functionally and stylistically up-to-date. We mentioned that, like other Office apps, Visio Pro is capable of a lot in experienced hands, but unfamiliar users will nevertheless be able to start building diagrams almost immediately, thanks largely to the extensive selection of Template Categories such as Business, Engineering, and Flowchart in the left sidebar. Each Template Category offered a selection of basic charts, diagrams, and drawings that we could customize with our data as we built them up. For example, under Engineering, we found templates for Basic Electrical, Circuits and Logic, Fluid Power, Part and Assembly Drawings, and other mechanical and physical process and control drawings and diagrams. Clicking Basic Electrical opened a dotted-grid field with a sidebar displaying objects for Shapes, Symbols, Semiconductors and Tubes, and other components and design features. Dragging each component onto the circuit board and linking them together in a variety of ways yielded a basic circuit diagram.

There are free tools that do much of what Visio Pro does, though none does near as much near as well. With Visio Pro's free trial, you'll be able to see that you're getting what you pay for.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MS Office Visio Pro Trial 12.0.6423.1000.

"Visio 2007 Pro is the most comprehensive available"

November 02, 2011  |  By CoachCY

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007 12.0.6423.1000

Pros

Easy to learn, easier to use. Templates/stencils, etc. are readily available within the software suite and many more can be found online.

Cons

Too Expensive... 2007 version is two version old, yet Microsoft continues to charge over $500 for a product that has repaid their development costs ten fold.

Summary

I would recommend this product for the average or above average user.

"Adequate but lacking latest server icons"

August 25, 2011  |  By nopojan

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007 12.0.6423.1000

Pros

Ability to adapt to multiple functionalities with templates pre configured.

Cons

Regular updates with icons and technology does not appear to be automatic

Summary

Adequate but could be greatly improved upon, a major help would be the ability to predefine x and y lengths for floorplans and network schematics. By simply entering the length and width and then have the wall or diminsions autmatically draw to that scale.

"Free to Create Imagination"

October 16, 2009  |  By devans00

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007 12.0.6423.1000

Pros

Once you have learned Visio, you are free to create whatever you can imagine. No limitations. Beats any wizard that guides you in making diagrams.

Cons

Expensive if you have to buy your own license. Worth it once you become dependent on the capabilities.

Summary

If you are a project manager or business analyst, no tool is better for making diagrams or making images of concepts. Allows un-artistic people to create.
