Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a connected diagram, part of Up and Running with Visio 2013.
Sometimes diagrams that are created here in Visio 2013 will contain shapes…that need to be connected to one another, so we'll be drawing something called…a connected diagram.…That's what we're going to do right now. If you think about a flow chart for…example, where shapes are connected, or think about a network diagram, like…we're looking at here from your exercise files, NetworkFinal, where we have a…number of shapes and connectors connecting them.…What happens when we move those shapes or try to rearrange the connectors, do…they stay connected?…That's the type of thing we're going to talk about now as we recreate this network diagram.…
We'll do that by going to File, and then going to New, and we'll look for a…Detailed Network Diagram template.…The Basic Network Diagram template, if you look down through the list here,…does contain a number of stencils or groups of shapes that will help us create a basic diagram.…We get more shapes if we go to the Detailed Network Diagram.…So let's select it, leave US Units has the default unit of measure and click Create.…
