Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Annotating Shapes with Callouts
In previous versions of Visio, you could add a callout to a page from the Callouts stencil in the Visio Extras group. The Callouts stencil still exists: in the Shapes window, click More Shapes, click Visio Extras, and then click Callouts to see more than three dozen callout types. The following graphic shows one example.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Finding Containers and Lists in Visio (part 2) - Wireframes
Software designers use wireframe shapes to create mockups of dialog boxes and other visual elements that will be displayed by their applications. When you use Visio 2010 to create a mockup of a dialog box, you will find that the Dialog Form shape is a container.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Finding Containers and Lists in Visio (part 1) - Swimlanes
The Visio 2010 swimlane add-in was completely redesigned to take advantage of both lists and containers, with the net effect that a cross-functional flowchart (CFF) is a “list of containers”!
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Adding Shapes to Lists
A list is a special type of container that maintains its members in ordered sequence. When you drop an object into a list, it takes a specific place before, between, or after existing members. Each list member knows its relative position in the list.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Formatting Containers, Sizing Containers
The predesigned containers in Visio 2010 expand automatically when you add shapes near the edge of the container. You can change the default behavior on the Format contextual tab of the Container Tools contextual tab set: in the Size group, click the Automatic Resize button to see three mutually exclusive options.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Working with Containers and Their Contents
Group shapes are still valuable for many purposes but Visio 2010 containers offer numerous advantages for grouping, moving, and managing a set of related shapes.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Adding Structure to Your Diagrams - Comparing Containers and Groups
You can use either groups or containers to visually connect a set of shapes. However, the two have key behavioral differences that are likely to lead you to use one or the other depending on your needs.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 7) - Controlling Front-to-Back Positioning
Note that when you group shapes together, you effectively create a new shape (the group), which ends up on top. Even if all the group’s members were behind other shapes to start, they end up on top.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 6) - Using the Grid, Ruler, and Guides
Visio has a few other elements that are useful for keeping diagrams straight and orderly. The grid, ruler, and guides have been around since the first release of Visio and are starting to be considered old-fashioned.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 5) - Aligning and Distributing Shapes Using Position Functions - Distributing Shapes, Rotating Shapes
If you need a set of shapes to be equally spaced, the distribute functions can help. You find them in the Space Shapes group within the Position drop-down. For veteran PC users, “space” seems to be the Visio 2010 verb for what used to be called “distribute.”
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 4) - Aligning and Distributing Shapes Using Position Functions - Practice Aligning Shapes
Just to the right of the Auto Align & Space button is the Position drop-down button, which contains elemental functions for aligning, distributing, rotating, and flipping shapes. Figure 8 shows all of Position’s items and subitems.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 3) - Using Auto Align & Space to Clean Up Connected Diagrams
If you have been furiously flowcharting away, rapidly rearranging process steps and not paying attention to the Dynamic Grid, you might find yourself with a rather disheveled flowchart.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 2) - Controlling Dynamic Grid Spacing, Dynamically Aligning Other Parts of Shapes
The uniform spacing used by the Dynamic Grid is flexible. Visio looks for patterns in related shapes to establish local spacing values. You effectively set uniform spacing for a region when you drop a second shape next to a first.
Microsoft Visio 2010 : Aligning and Arranging Shapes (part 1) - Working with the Dynamic Grid
If you’ve noticed thin, orange lines and arrows briefly appearing as you drop shapes on the page, you’ve already seen the Dynamic Grid in action. The Dynamic Grid aims to prevent the mess before it happens.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Working with Other Microsoft Office Programs - Pasting Charts into Other Documents
One more way to include objects from one workbook in another Office document is to copy the object you want to share and then paste it into its new location. You can copy Excel charts to Word documents and PowerPoint presentations to reuse your data without inserting a worksheet into the file and re-creating your chart in that new location.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Working with Other Microsoft Office Programs - Creating Hyperlinks
One of the characteristics of the Web is that documents published on Web pages can have references, or hyperlinks, to locations in the same document or to other Web documents.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Working with Other Microsoft Office Programs - Storing Workbooks as Parts of Other Office Documents
In the preceding section, you linked to another file from within your Excel workbook. The advantages of linking to a second file are that the size of your workbook is kept small and any changes in the second document will be reflected in your workbook.
Microsoft Excel 2010 : Working with Other Microsoft Office Programs - Including Office Documents in Workbooks
The specific menu item you point to changes to reflect the program used to create the file to which you want to link. For a Word 2010 document, for example, the menu item you point to is Document Object.
Microsoft Word 2010 : Collaborating with Others - Tracking Changes
Normally, when you edit a document, your changes flow right into the text. When you delete something, it disappears. When you insert text, it goes where you put it. When you format something, it looks different

PowerPoint also enables you to apply multiple color schemes within a single presentation. As with applying multiple themes, be sure that you have a good reason to do this before applying many different colors to your presentation.
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 : Customizing Themes and Backgrounds - Applying Themes
When you create a presentation, PowerPoint automatically applies a theme, a coordinated set of colors, fonts, and effects. However, you can easily change the theme originally applied to your presentation in a matter of seconds.
Microsoft OneNore 2010 : Formatting Pictures and Screen Clippings (part 4) - Entering Alternative Text for an Image, Setting a Picture as the Page Background
Setting a picture as your page background has several uses. For one, you can use a decorative photo or piece of clip art to function much like a stationery design does for writing paper.
Microsoft OneNore 2010 : Formatting Pictures and Screen Clippings (part 3) - Overlapping Multiple Images on a Page, Copying Text from Pictures
This is most useful when you want to overlap multiple pictures to create a design on the page. You can also use this method to maximize page space by overlapping multiple images in such a way that only the parts you care about are shown.
