Microsoft Visio 2013 Themes

Visio supports Microsoft Office themes with their variants, and I have been experimenting with their affect on data graphics, so I thought I would create a document with examples of each theme applied to some data graphics. I would hesitate before using some of these, but it is interesting to see the appearance of each.

The linked data is from the AdventureWorks sample database that Microsoft provide on Codeplex for SQL Server 2014, and I created a new view vSalesTerritoryByFiscalYears to aggregate the sales by region. I applied a text callout, icon set, data bar and color by value to each, and inserted a vertical legend.

I have made the document available for download:

I also saved the document as a web page, and this had the side-effect of creating an image of each page, which can be viewed in the gallery below.

I have just tried Sway for the first time too : https://sway.com/FrL2RKMGHw5cdLUz

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.
