  • 1. Visio annoyances?
    I'm new to Visio and keep finding a lot of little annoyances in how the drawing tools, view commands, etc. work. Nothing really awful and nothing that I can't work around, but I find that I constantly have to take my hands off the keyboard or mouse to do something that feels like it should be available from where my hands already were, or I have to dig down in some menu or right click on something and dig deeper than I would like, and all of this switching and digging interrupts my workflow and slows me down. It just doesn't feel like a smooth process to me (note that I come from a graphics background, not a CAD background, so that may be part of it). Is it just me? Do others find the same interruptions, or am I just not thinking right? Maybe I haven't found the shortest, easiest way to do things? I wonder if my brain will eventually adapt to the Visio way of doing tihngs and these annoyances may disappear, or will I just have to get used to the interruptions and accept them as the way thing work? Just curious if others have had this same experience, or if I should shut up and just get used to it. Anybody else out there find working with Visio to be less than smooth? Thanks,
