Get to know Visio

Organization Chart toolbar and Organization Chart menu

Special tools come with the Organization Chart template.

We should take a closer look at the concept of a Visio template. As you saw in a previous lesson, when you choose a template in Visio, you get a blank drawing page and a handful of shapes to the left of the page. But that's not all your choice brings you. With a template, you get other special tools to help you with your diagram. For example, when you choose an organization chart template, you get the following:

Callout 1 A special Organization Chart toolbar that makes chart layout easier.
Callout 2 An Organization Chart menu that provides many commands to help you work with the chart.

Also set automatically for you is the page orientation: to landscape, the typical orientation for organization charts.

Other templates provide other special tools and menus.
