MetroIcons

LayerManager for Visio 2013+

Microsoft Visio has a complex layering system that can be confusing. The appearance of a Visio page can be drasitically altered by changing the visibility and printability of layers.

Effective use of layers can provide multiple views of the same base visual information, reducing the need to copy shapes from one page to another, and thus eliminates mistakes.

MetroIcons

Microsoft have unleashed a new exciting, interface paradigm on the world with Windows 8. The Microsoft Design Language (formerly referred to as the Metro UI) puts data to the forefront.

You can now add Metro style icons to your Visio diagrams with over 1,700 different vector SmartShapes split into 19 different stencils.

multiSelect

multiSelect for Visio 2010+

All editions of Microsoft Visio 2010+ can be used to make many different types of diagrams, and most of these types involve connecting one shape to another - sometimes directly, and sometimes by using a connector shape.
However, Microsoft forgot to make it easy to select the connected shapes in order to enhance these useful, informative types of diagrams. We have created a Visio add-in that presents you with a variety of selection methods whenever you select a connected shape.

Multi-Language Text

Multi-Language Text for Visio 2010

Microsoft Visio is a most useful and versatile diagramming application that has the ability to include information with every single item. Although Microsoft Visio can be installed in many different language versions, it is not possible to maintain multiple language shape text or page names in the same document. Multi-Language Text for Visio 2010 enables you do just that, and can easily switch the diagram text between different languages. It will even attempt to automatically translate all of the text for you.

Document Imager

Document Imager for Visio 2010

Microsoft Visio is a most useful and versatile diagramming application that has the ability to export a page or a selection of shapes to a variety of different image file formats, both raster and vector. However, it is not possible to export a selection of pages, automatically named, in one click. bVisual have now developed an add-in for Microsoft Visio 2010 that enables you to put export a selection of pages, automatically named consistently into a folder of your choice.

Rules Tools

Rules Tools (FREE) for Visio 2013 Professional or 2010 Premium

The new Validation API enables businesses to write custom validation rules to suit their own purposes. Microsoft Visio 2010+ provides built-in rule sets for flowcharts, BPMN diagrams and SharePoint Designer Workflows. However, it does not provide a rule set developer interface for the analyzing, amending or creating rules. This Rules Tools add-in fills this gap by providing an extra group in the Process tab in Visio 2010+ that allows users to analyze existing rules, display issues, and to export/import rule sets.
