Microsoft Visio Standard 2010 Features
Better Interface, Better Tools, and Better Diagramming Results
What does it mean to suggest Microsoft Visio Standard 2010 set the trend for later editions? It means everything that Microsoft is advertising in the latest version is here in some sense. Later editions have nice small fixes and expanded abilities, but the essential features will be found here.
Among those key features, Microsoft Visio Standard 2010 has all of the following:

At the same time, stop wasting time trying to get the alignment and spacing right on your shapes.

Find your tools more easily with the Ribbon: The Ribbon was introduced in 2007, but 2010 is when it comes into its own. The tools are better organized, with icons that are easy to read and find. This saves tons of time from the first moment you set up Microsoft Visio Standard 2010. There are also other interface improvements, like a redesigned Shapes window that lets you get access to all your stencils and organizes your shapes by popularity.
Choose from more powerful commands in Backstage View: Get access to new capabilities in the easy to navigate Backstage View. You’ll be able to Open, Save, and Print like before, but you’ll also get an improved Live Preview feature to see what the diagram looks like with all fonts and themes already into the preview. This allows users to see exactly what others will see, thus making better choices about changes and when the diagram is complete. You can also save and share through the cloud in Backstage, providing new abilities to get your diagrams out there.
Intimately integrate data: Get more from your data by linking data shapes to real-time data that stays updated without any extra work from you. Connect data through Excel, Access, and other Microsoft data organizers. By connecting your diagrams to where your data is, you are always providing the best diagrams possible every time you share them.
Get more from formulas with ShapeSheet IntelliSense: User ShapeSheet formulas to recalculate shapes, now with multi-line formulas and autocomplete.
