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

A fish out of water: How to Add connector points on Visio Stencils

A fish out of water: How to Add connector points on Visio Stencils

In the last blog post I spoke about how to add, or fix, text annotation bellow the shapes and how you can do it in a reusable way. On this blog post, we will be addressing another top complaint regarding my Microsoft Integration, Azure, BAPI, Office 365 and much more Stencils Pack for Visio package: Connector points.

A connection point is a special point on a shape that you can “glue” connectors and other shapes to. When you glue a connector or shape to a connection point, they stay connected, even if one of the shapes is moved.

Add a connection points on Visio Stencils

Connection points become visible when you try to connect one shape to another. You see a shape’s connection points when you hover near the shape with the Connector Tool or drag the endpoint of any connector or line near a shape that has connection points.

Add a connection points on Visio Stencils

if the shape you want to glue a connector to does not have a connection point where you want it, you can add one.

  • Select the shape.
  • On the Home tab, in the Tools group, click the Connection Point tool Button image.
Add a connection points on Visio Stencils
  • If connection points are not visible, on the View tab, in the Visual Aids group, select the Connection Points checkbox.
  • Press Ctrl and click where you want to add a connection point. The new connection point is automatically selected after you place it.
  • On the Home tab, in the Tools group, click Pointer Tool Select Objects to resume normal editing.

Microsoft Integration and Azure Stencils Pack for Visio: New major version available (v6.0.0)

It was only 9 days ago that I released the latest minor version of this package, on that time the goal was to update the Security and Governance stencils to please my dear friend Nino Crudele. It was then that I notice that Microsoft did again a completely redesigned on several of the symbols and of course add new services so I decided that this was the time to not only refresh the package with the new icons but also but so extra work.

What’s new in this version?

With the growing number of stencils in this package, it was becoming hard to easily find or look for the right shape/representation. So once again based on some feedback I received from the community I decide to do so rearranging.

    • MIS Azure Others Stencils;
    • MIS AI and Machine Learning Stencils;
    • Microsoft Integration Stencils Old Version Stencils;

With the growing number of stencils in this package, it was becoming hard to find or look for the right shape/representation and based on some feedback I received from the community and some tips, I focused most of the work in this new version in providing search capacity to this package, but it wasn’t the only one:

  • Search Capabilities: Defining the correct metadata information and keywords for all the shapes for a better search functionality.

Microsoft Integration (Azure and much more) Stencils Pack

I start this project because at the time I didn’t find nice shapes – graphically beautiful and resizable shapes – to produce BizTalk Server topologies diagrams and high-level overview of integrating processes. The project grew as community member asked for new shapes and during the last few years I have been updating and publishing new shapes, particularly associated with Azure services, which has a very low release cadence.

This time I cannot say it was an update because was actually a complete makeover and the reasons behind this decision are mainly these 2:

  • The Project Become Huge: more than 1000 shapes, and due to the project structure that I decide to implement at the time, it became a little difficult to maintain since even I had difficulty finding and organizing all the shapes and there were several duplicate shapes (some were purposely duplicated and still are).
  • A Fresh New Look: at the time, almost all the shapes were blue – not a beautiful blue but an obsolete annoying blue – so I decide to use, in almost the cases, a monochrome approach opting for a darker color – but after all these years it was already a little worn and needing for a new modern look and this time I decided to follow the look that Microsoft is implementing in Microsoft Docs – in fact, several stencils were collect from there – a more light and multicolored approach.
    • You liked the old aspect? Do not worry, I still kept the old (monochrome) shapes but moved to support files.

What’s new in this version?

Is this version all about a fresh and modern new look? No, it is not. That was indeed one of the main tasks, but in addition:

  • New shapes: 571 new forms have been added – many of them are in fact a redesign of the existing features to have a modern look – but it is still an impressive number. Making a total of 1883 shapes available in this package.
  • The package structure changed: It is more organized – went from 13 files to 20 – which means that more categories were created and for that reason, I think it will be easier to find the shapes you are looking for.

Microsoft Integration (Azure and much more) Stencils Pack v2.6.1 for Visio 2016/2013: the new Azure logo

This is probably the quickest and smallest update that I made in my Microsoft Integration (Azure and much more) Stencils Pack: only 1 new stencil and I only do it for its importance, since it is definitely one of Microsoft’s fastest growing business these days, and the Ignite context: the new Azure logo.
