If you’re like most people, you would prefer that Microsoft Office Visio 2003 contain all the shapes you want. At some point, however, you’ll probably need to create a shape that Visio doesn’t already have or revise a shape slightly (or extensively) to better suit a diagram. At these times, you’ll need to take advantage of Visio’s drawing tools. Whether you’re a whiz with drawing tools or not, the good news is that you don’t necessarily have to draw a shape from scratch even when you can’t find the exact shape you want on an existing stencil. It’s almost always faster to start with an existing shape and then modify it to suit your needs.
