can i use visio for site planning as it relates to events and if so how i already have visio installed.

RE: visio

Hi Krystal,

Thank you for your question.

Can you explain in a little more detail exactly what you want Visio to do in terms of site planning.



RE: visio

Thanks for your response. I would like to be able to show my client what the site would look like, for eg. where the cocktail tables would be placed, where the back drop behind the speaker would go etc. also I would like the use of colours in depicting these things.


RE: visio

Hi Krystal,

Thank you for your response.

In Visio there are templates for room layouts with associated stencils that include tables etc. that can be used to create the layout.

You could also use layers in order to colour co-ordinate related objects or use the normal format fill command.

Please find a link attached to some info on layers:

I hope this helps you.



RE: visio

Thank you very much I will give it a try...

Visio tip:

Using the Quick Access Toolbar in Visio 2010

The Quick Access Toolbar is included in virtually every Office product, including Visio 2010 as well as Outlook 2010, Word 2010, Excel 2010, and PowerPoint 2010.

You will find the Quick Access Toolbar in the top-left side of the window. To begin, click the Customize button (it's the little black arrow at the end of the toolbar).

Simply click the commands you want to include.

Virtually any command can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. Click the More Commands option and a new window will open from where you can browse the commands including those not on the ribbon.
