    Visio basics (V. 2000)

    Could someone point me to a good website for the basics of Visio/flowcharts? I have to learn this program for work. For instance, what is a "tagged process"? To me it looks like a simple box, but there's that tab in the lower right corner that I can't get rid of, don't know what else to use as a box. I'm sure there's an entire language devoted to this program.
    Thanks,

    I don't know a good source on the symbology used for flowcharts and I would bet that not too many people know more than about 6 shapes either which makes the rest of the shapes useful for only a very small group.

    I don't have a Tagged Process on my Basic Flowchart Shapes stencil (I can find it on the Miscellaneous Flowchart Shapes stencil though) so I would suggest you look for the common items on the Basic Flowchart Shapes instead. My all time favourite shape is the Flowchart Shapes because it will morph between four shapes with a simple right click - the default shape is a simple box.

    Thanks for the info, we finally found our stencils (and felt pretty silly having overlooked them) but couldn't quite figure out the morphing.

    Hi Naomi,

    The tagged process question has come up before see <post#=441,224>post 441,224</post: >

    Here is a link to a website that will describe the various flowchart shapes
