System Architect-Visio Interface 1.1

Tab navigation

This System Architect add-on macro allows the user to create a Microsoft Visio Diagram from any diagram in System Architect. The user can configure the macro to map any Visio Shape to represent any System Architect symbol type, thus rendering diagrams from SA that utilize the many shapes available in Visio and via third parties. If changes are made to the position or color of a corresponding shape in Visio that information can be read back into SA to update the diagram. Reports are produced as well for any discrepancy between the diagram in Visio and the Diagram in System Architect.
