New Capabilities in Visio 2002 SR-1

Support for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002

If you are using Visual Studio .NET 2002 as your development environment, Visio Professional 2002 SR-1 adds the ability to reverse-engineer your Visual Studio .NET 2002 projects to create UML (Unified Modeling Language) class diagrams. This feature includes support for the following languages:
  • Microsoft Visual Basic .NET
  • Microsoft Visual C# .NET
  • Microsoft Visual C++ .NET
Note Visual Studio .NET must be installed for this UML functionality to be available.

Support for Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server

You can save a Visio document as a Web page directly to a document library. To use this feature, you must have Microsoft Office XP or Microsoft Office 2000 installed, and a server running Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server.

ClearType Support

When you select the ClearType Support option, text on LCD (or flat panel) screens appears exceptionally clear. When you select this feature, the horizontal resolution is tripled on Microsoft Windows XP.

This functionality is unavailable (dimmed) if you are running one of the following operating systems:
  • Microsoft Windows 2000
  • Microsoft Windows NT
  • Microsoft Windows 95/98
  • Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)
To locate this option, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the View tab.

If you want to use the ClearType feature to view Japanese or Chinese characters, update your Windows XP GDI+ files. To do this, download the appropriate file for your system. The following files are available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:
