Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New version available (v8.0.1)

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New version available (v8.0.1)

In my previous update, I discussed my intention to release a new major version of my stencils. However, I’ve opted for a gradual approach, releasing minor updates along the way. This way, it becomes easier for me because I don’t need to spend long periods allocated to this task, and at the same time, all of you can start enjoying these new icons.

Keeping my promise, I’m presenting another update. I hope it meets your expectations! If you have any specific requests, don’t hesitate to share them with me.

What’s new in this version? (for now)

The main goal of this release was to provide the new icons present in the Azure Portal, on the Power Platform, and new existing Services. In this version, the changes and additions are:

  • New stencil packages: Additional stencil packages were incorporated into this project to enhance the discoverability of shapes:
    • MIS Azure Integration Services: this file contains shapes related to Azure Integration Service and messaging.
    • MIS Microsoft Fabric: this file contains shapes related to Microsoft Fabric – This was actually a request made by a community member. And credits to Sam Debruyn for these Microsoft SVG files. I only had the work to “convert” them into proper Visio stencils.
  • Move some shapes: I reorganized and relocated certain shapes to other files within this package.
  • SVG Files: Add new SVG files;
  • Special Highlights: API Center, Policy fragments, Event Grid, Event Grid: Namespace, Partner namespaces and Partner registrations or APIM Schemas

Microsoft Integration, Azure, Power Platform, Office 365, and much more Stencils Pack

However, I decided to do this task progressively and release minor updates during this “journey”.

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New Azure and Dataverse Logos

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New Azure and Dataverse Logos

There was a big buzz this weekend regarding the release of a new Azure Logo by Microsoft. The new Azure icon represents the unity of Azure within the larger Microsoft family of product icons. It’s part of Microsoft’s Fluent Design System, carefully crafted to produce icons that look familiar to what customers know and love, while representing the agile future of our business.

I usually don’t update my stencils only because of a new icon. Still, this time I made an exception, and I updated my package with this new Azure icon (thanks, Tiago Costa, for providing me the resource). I also toked this opportunity to add also a previous request: the new Dataverse icon.

What’s new in this version?

These are the list of changes and additions present in this major release:

  • New shapes: There are new shapes on the following Visio Stencils files (.vssx):
    • MIS Power Platform Stencils: the new logo of Dataverse was added.
    • MIS Azure Stencils: the new logo of Azure was added.
  • SVG files: new SVG files added.

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New major version available (v7.0.0)

Well, the thing is, you cannot say to me, “…these stencils look fantastic, but are currently unusable or worthless because…” my brain enters in a crazy mode, and I can only free myself when all the work is finished successfully and that these resources are handy :).

Jokes apart, I use these resources for a long time, I create these for myself, but I knew that they were not perfects. The major problem was that fixing that amount of icons was a time-consuming task. However, with the number of people using these stencils increasing and reporting those problems, I decided to resolve them once and for all.

Today I can announce that I close all the open issues reported on the git repository of this package.

What’s new in this version?

These are the list of changes and additions present in this major release:

  • Restructure of Visio Stencils files (.vssx) names: the package is now composed of 26 Visio Stencils files.
    • Some of them were renamed: PowerApps and Flow is now Power Platform; Files is now Files and Message Types Stencils, …
    • Some were merged: Power BI was merged in the new Power Platform Visio Stencil file; Azure Others was merged in the Azure Additional or Support Stencils, Office365 is now Office, Office 365 and Dynamics 365…
    • New Visio Stencils files: MIS Black and Cyan and MIS Azure Black and Gray;
      • New Organisational Stencils file add by Jacob Mansfield;
  • New shapes: New shapes were added on the majority of the Visio Stencils files (.vssx). Probably the one that was most affected was Azure Stencils and Office, Office 365 and Dynamics 365;
  • Text annotations and connector points: The issues regarding text annotations (legend appear in the center of the icon instead of bellow) and connector points (lack of proper connect points) are now solved in all the Visio Stencils files (.vssx). This was a massive work!
  • Order of the icons: all the icons appear in alphabetic order inside the Visio Stencil file, with the exception in some cases of the first ones that in some case contains the main shape of the context, like in Microsoft Integration Stencils, the first icon is BizTalk Server Logo.
  • Automation: add 3 PowerShell script to this package for you to:
    • Standardize all SVG filenames available in all subfolders by:
      • Not using spaces. Some software will not recognize file names with spaces, and file names with spaces must be enclosed in quotes when using the command line. Having spaces in URL’s are also not a good experience and should be avoided. For all these reasons I decided to remove all spaces and replace it will ‘-‘ (dash);
      • Names are in Camel case, where the first letter of each section of text is capitalized (of course respecting the line above), e.g., File-Name.svg
      • Having extension in lowercase, e.g., *.svg
      • List all the detected duplicate files.
    • Automatically install (configure) all the Visio files (*.vssx), so that next time you open Visio, they will be there available;
    • And also the possibility to download the most recent version from GitHub and install it locally;
  • Standardize shape sizes: standardize the shapes sizes in all to be more or less all of the same sizes Visio Stencils files.
  • Fixed some minor stencils layouts;
  • SVG files: new SVG files added.

These changes were a massive job that stole all my free time apart from my work and family time, from the past three weeks! So I hope you appreciate it!

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New version available (v6.3.0)

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New version available (v6.3.0)

I am always paying attention to requests from members of the community, and whenever I can, I update this stencil pack with requested shapes or functionalities. And this is one of these cases. One of the most common complaints about this stencil pack was/is text annotations. When you try to add a legend on the stencil, the text is in the middle of the icon, instead of underneath. And sometimes the text is white, which doesn’t help also.

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: text annotation issue

Another recent aspect that came to my attention was the fact that was missing proper connector points, which make it hard to properly connect shapes in a diagram.

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: connector points issue

Of course, all of these you can manually fix by move the text to the bottom of each shape, change the color of the text and add connector points. But some of these tasks required a more deep knowledge of working with Visio and they are time-consuming. Luckily this work is being made, it may take a while since this package has more than 2000 shapes!

What’s new in this version?

Today I can announce that the first phase is done and the first file, and probably the most important, of this package is fixed:

  • Microsoft Azure (MIS Azure Stencils.vssx): This package contains stencils of Azure Services (original icons) that are available thru the Azure Portal.

The main goal of this release was to solve or improve the user experience regarding text annotations and connector points. In this version, the changes and additions are:

  • Text annotations issue solved: This issue was solved on the stencils present on the Microsoft Azure (MIS Azure Stencils.vssx) file;
  • Proper connector points added: This improved feature was added on stencils present on the Microsoft Azure (MIS Azure Stencils.vssx) file;

  • Fixed some minor stencils layouts;
  • New shapes: New shapes added on Microsoft Azure (MIS Azure Stencils.vssx) and Microsoft Azure: Others (MIS Azure Others Stencils.vssx);
