Create, name and deploy a custom Visio theme RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to create a custom theme for Visio 2016 to roll out our corporate design to everyone using Visio in our organization.

    I understand that I need to deploy this using a template file that users have to actively choose as their starting point. But when doing so, the theme just shows up under "This Document" at the very botom of the "Design > Themes" gallery. Shape styles have confusing names after I change the color theme because they are stuck with names like "Balanced Effect - Red, Variant Accent 1" even though now it's actually a blue style.

    I need prominent placement of the theme and a way to name all elements (including the category heading in the themes gallery) in a clear way.

    Thanks in advance for your input :)
