SS Plus is an add-in for Visio Plan 2 that fixes and enhances the Slide Snippets feature.
The SS Plus add-in corrects the image distortion, and provides the ability to add a hyperlink to each image, and descriptive text that can include bold and italic characters, as well as hyperlinks. In addition, the descriptive text can be automatically converted into one of the many PowerPoint SmartArt layouts.
Microsoft Visio Plan 2 has a great feature, Slide Snippets, that can create a PowerPoint slide show directly from the Visio document. However, it still leaves some work to be done before the presentation is … presentable!
Firstly, most of the images are either squashed or squeezed, and secondly, it does not copy any text from Visio, apart from the slide title.
SS Plus not only fixes the image issue, but also provides the ability to not only automatically create accompanying text for each slide, but also allows this text to include bold, italics and hyperlinks. In addition, a hyperlink can be added to the image.
SS Plus can also automatically apply PowerPoint SmartArt to the accompanying text block to make it far more presentable, and immediately ready for presentation.
SS Plus makes it easy turn a Visio document into a storyline, and it is can be re-told with new content whenever the diagram is updated.

Slide Snippets, enhanced with SS Plus, makes it so simple to create a rich PowerPoint presentation directly from Visio.
This presentation was created directly from Visio Plan 2, using Slide Snippets enhanced with SS Plus, without any alterations in PowerPoint at all (apart from saving the file).
