Quick summary

  • The VisioAutoExt library now contains an Add-In to Visio2007 called “Visio Helper”
  • It’s an experimental add-in to help me optimize Visio for my tasks – creating new documents and drawing nice gradient fills
  • No setup.exe available yet, I run it by loading the project in Visual Studio 2008 and staring a debugging session
  • Beware: this is very early prototype code


  • Have something that you often do in Visio? let me know and I’ll see if it makes sense to incorporate as part of this add-in


  • It takes a while to explain, and it’s easier for me to demonstrate, so I’ve uploaded a video to MSN Soapbox Videos
