Microsoft Visio remains, in the Professional 2019 edition, the best tool for designing diagrams in companies and thereby orienting itself based on common industry standards such as IEEE. In addition, Microsoft has made thousands of improvements in detail and introduced new features, especially to make it easier to work on projects in larger teams. The software is therefore explicitly aimed at professional users. Nevertheless, the familiar easy entry into the program remains, which is mainly achieved through countless templates and the proven office interface. Every buyer continues to receive 2 GB of free storage space with Microsoft’s own cloud solution OneDrive.
In Microsoft Visio Professional 2019, diagrams can be generated immediately after the program starts: Hundreds of templates based on a selection of more than 250,000 shapes ensure this. Since the desktop application is also constantly updating itself, new templates are added regularly. Users then share finished diagrams not only as Visio data sets, but also via the Internet: Visio Professional 2019 supports web-based display of diagrams or the output as a PDF file for users who do not use Visio on their device. The project creator immediately sees comments that other users then store in the diagram and thus receives feedback.
Microsoft has also improved support for inputs and digital pens, such as the Microsoft Surface Pen, especially for Visio Professional 2019 and Windows 10. Diagrams can be refined using natural input methods, using virtual ink or fingers to color, change, and rearrange diagrams. This also makes it easier to use the program on a tablet like the iPad Pro, for which a separate app is available from the official Apple store. To better work with other people, the annotation functions have been improved and the integration of Skype for Business in the program interface has been expanded.
New data can be imported directly from other popular programs, such as Excel, into Microsoft Visio Professional 2019. This saves time when editing diagrams, since manual entries are less common. To enrich those diagrams with life and display large amounts of information clearly, countless colors, shapes and graphics are available to focus on the data that is important to the viewer. The program also supports the integration of drawings created in the popular AutoCAD software. This also greatly expands the range of functions, as even complex shapes are possible.
As soon as data of any kind that has already been integrated into the diagram changes, Microsoft Visio Professional 2019 will also immediately change the presentation of the project. To do this, the program permanently scans the embedded data, regardless of where it comes from and whether it is available locally or on the network, and then immediately transfers the changes to the current diagram. This means that everyone working on this project always has an overview and works together on a single version of this diagram. Eliminating manual updates also simplifies the work process and saves a lot of time in the long run.
Microsoft has developed Visio Professional 2019 to only support one of the editions of Windows 10 and Windows 10S. It is not possible to run the software with an earlier version of Windows. Also, this offer is a product key for a desktop PC or laptop. There are no more subscription costs. Microsoft guarantees to keep this software updated for at least five years.
