Shapes basics An introduction to shapes What is a shape? In Visio, the  definition covers more than you  might think. Yes, there are basic  shapes like rectangles and  diamonds for a flowchart. But there  are also very detailed shapes. And Visio shapes don't just sit there  and look good. They have  interactive behavior  as well.  Meaning that when you work with  them, they react in a certain way.  Shapes range from  simple to detailed.

Shapes basics Two types of shapes When you work with Visio shapes,  you can resize them, rotate them,  move them around, and so on.  But how the shape behaves when  you do those things depends on the  type of shape that it is.  1-D and 2-D shapes

Shapes basics Two types of shapes There are two types of shapes in  Visio: 1-D and 2-D shapes Each type of shape behaves a  certain way. Once you know the type  that a shape belongs to, you’ll be  able to work with it successfully.  One-dimensional (1-D) Two-dimensional (2-D)

Shapes basics 1-D shapes A 1-D shape is a shape that, when  selected, has a beginning point     and an ending point   . As the picture  shows, 1-D shapes typically look like  lines.  Examples of 1-D shapes How do 1-D shapes behave when  you work with them? If you move the  beginning point or ending point, only  one dimension changes: the length.

Shapes basics 1-D shapes But the most powerful behavior of  1-D shapes is their ability to connect  two other shapes.  Examples of 1-D shapes For example, in a business process  diagram, you might connect two  departments with a line or an arrow.
