I want to use geographic map shapes in our regional promotion plans.
So I’ll type a keyword in Search shapes and select Start search.
I don’t see any shapes available in Visio that will work.
So I’ll select Online to check out the shapes that are available there.
When I find one that looks relevant, I’ll select it to see if it has all the shapes I’ll need.
If it contains the shapes I want, I select Download and then select Open to return to the list of stencils where the new map shapes are available.
Now I can drag the new shapes onto my diagram.
If I want to use these map shapes in the future, I can find them by selecting More Shapes and looking in My Shapes.
