    Question Need help with Visio 2013 SmartShapes

    Using Visio 2013. I'm trying to create a shape that has several variations. I'd like to create a smart shape that allows the user to right click and select the appropriate variation. Problem is, I'm not sure where to start with this or even what this type of shape is actually called so I can search for help with it. Any suggestions/advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Not sure if this will help but see Custom Shapes and Data Graphics in Visio 2013.

    The term you are looking for is "multi shapes". Here is a link to an article that describes the concept and the methodology:

    We create multi shapes at Visimation using our own custom automation. However, this article is a great tutorial on the concept.
