Visio, the drawing application just got a refreshed look. In comparison to the earlier versions, the latest version features a simplified user interface and many other noteworthy improvements.

What’s new?

Shapes - The Auto-Connect arrows, which allow you to quickly add or connect shapes, have been updated to make them more responsive. Now when you need them, these arrows will pop up instantly. When you don’t need them just get them out of your sight! This helps you concentrate and build up a connected diagram without ever moving your mouse away from your diagram.

Stencils – Now you can click on stencils to add them or remove them from the pane itself. There are more ‘Shapes’ options available in the Shapes pane. Plus, you have got the option to quickly preview a stencil and check if it’s the one you wanted or not.Also, there is much more. You can visit this page to check the list of changes.
