Hi.  I recently learned that I can define styles for formatting objects in Visio.  I did this for one document, but when I went to open a new document, the styles were gone.  Is there a way to create some "Global" styles that are available regardless of document?

Thanks!

You would save the drawing that you defined the style as a template, and double-click the template icon.
Then a new drawing with the style will be created.  :) :) :) :) :) :)

Save your document as Drawing1.vst. remember to use the .vst format in saving your drawing so that Visio will save it as a template.

Then follow June's instructions to open that vst file using double click, Visio will create an instance of your template in a .vsd file.
