Visio 2007 Standard and Professional compatibility

Can anyone tell me whether it is possible to use Visio 2007 Standard to edit the *text only* of files created by someone else (original author) with Visio 2007 Professional, then return the edited files to the person using Professional without the original author losing anything in the process?

RE: Visio 2007 Standard and Professional compatibility

Since the beginning, the basic program is the same, the difference is in the extra stencils and add-ins.

You can do a fair bit of editting on a Visio Pro document in Visio Standard, including changing the text. You can not add new Visio Pro shapes, but if they have already been used on the document, you can use those shapes that reside in the local stencil. The only caveate is that if the shape runs an add-on when it is dropped on the page. That functionality will be missing.

Thanks very much indeed John for your comprehensive answer. I'll just have to cross fingers that my client never uses adn add-on!


RE: Visio 2007 Standard and Professional compatibility

Most of the time it will not be a problem, but I had to add the warning. From what you describe, there should be no real reason to worry about not making the changes.
