Microsoft Visio Viewer 2013 Released

Microsoft have released a new version of the free Visio Viewer ( see ), so you can now view Visio 2013 files, in addition to earlier versions, without having Visio installed. Or, as in my case, on a PC that has Visio 2010 installed.


Even better news is that my visViewer product ( see ) works with it, without any changes!

    Great product!
    Have you found a way in the viewer api to get the layer a shape is on or shapes in a layer?

    • davidjpp Says:

      I don’t think you can get the layer that a shape is on … probably because it isn’t that simple. A shape in Visio can belong to 0,1 or more layers, and can contain sub-shapes, which can also belong to 0, 1 or more layers.
      At least you can control layer visibility and colour using the Viewer, something that is not currently available in the web version of VIsio documents in Sharepoint 2010 or 2013.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
