Microsoft Visio - Changing View Modes
Visio provides a few options to change the way you view the drawing. The View tab lists all of the possible view options that you can use on the canvas. We will look at some of the commands useful for changing display modes.
The Slide Snippets pane is available only in the latest Office 365 version of Visio. Basically, Slide Snippets allow you to directly export a Visio diagram as a PowerPoint slide.
To take a slide sample, click the Slide Snippets pane on the View tab to open it. Then select an area of the drawing that you want to exportto a PowerPoint slide and click the Add button in the Slide Snippets pane. Add a title in the Enter title here ... field and click Export to export the captured drawing to a PowerPoint slide.
Presentation mode displays a full screen view of the drawing without any distractions. This mode can also be toggled by pressing F5 on the keyboard.
Ruler, Grid and Guides
You can toggle between displaying vertical and horizontal rulers, grid and guides by toggle the corresponding checkboxes in the Show area of the View tab. The scaling of the rulers and grid can also be adjusted. The grid makes it easy to capture objects so that they are placed correctly on the canvas.
The Zoom section includes controls that allow you to change canvas zoom levels. You can also fit the content to the window or fit the content to fill the width of the page.
The Window section lists commands that allow you to organize multiple windows on your screen. You can directly open a new window or organize windows side by side. You can also cascade windows to easily switch between them.
