It's time now to shift our focus to the design or look and feel of our…diagrams here in Visio 2013. We're going to work with this file called…NoObstacles_OrgChart_0301, found in the Chapter_03 folder of your exercise files.…As you see we have a number of Shapes. We also have Connectors,…a Container around our Executive Team, there is a Callout.…All of these are affected by the fastest and easiest way to change the look and…feel of any diagram and that is to apply a different theme.…
I say different, because a default theme is applied to your diagrams, especially…when you go through creating a new diagram based on a template.…So let's just zoom into this, so we can really see the changes as they happen.…I am going to go down to the plus sign (+) to the right of my zoom slider and…give it a few clicks, until I get up to about 89%, 90%.…I am also going to scroll, so we can move it off to the right here and have a…better look when we go to the Design tab on the ribbon, because that's where…we see Themes. We'll also see Variants to those themes, which we'll get into momentarily.…
