Visio 2007 missing Dimensioning stencils

Visio 2007 missing Dimensioning stencils

Visio 2007 missing Dimensioning stencils

(OP)
Anyone else missing the Dimensioning stencils in Visio 2007?  Did MS move them somewhere else?  I have tried adding components through Add Remove Software, but that stencil doesnt even show up in the list.
This is on an XP PC.

In Visio 2007
Do on the Files menu
 --> Shapes
 --> Engineering
 --> Mechanical Engineering
 --> Geometrical Dimensioning and Tolerancing (US or Metric)

(This may not be in Visio standard )

Looks like I do have Visio 2007 Standard at work, and I don't have the Engineering section in my stencils either.
At home I have 2007 Pro, and have everything.  Guess it just is not included in the Standard version.
Thanks for the response.

RE: Visio 2007 missing Dimensioning stencils

The difference between Std and Pro is that Pro has additional stencils and wizards, the program itself is pretty much the same. A drawing created in Visio Pro can be opened and manipulated in Visio Std.

When Visio adds shapes to a drawing, it copies the master of the shapes from the stencil to a special area of the drawing called the local stencil.

So it is theoretically possible to use the dimensioning stencil in Visio Std.
