All of the ribbon tabs shown in the preceding sections are visible 100 percent of the time as you run Visio. However, there are two types of tabs that only appear when necessary.

A Tool tab set only appears in a particular drawing context, usually when a specific type of shape is selected on the drawing page. Tool tab sets usually appear to the right of the View tab and are not activated automatically, that is, you must click the tab to view its contents. A tool tab set includes a colored header and may contain one or more tool tabs under the header. Here are examples of two tool tab sets:

  • Picture Tools This tool tab set appears whenever you insert or select a graphic on a Visio drawing page. The green Picture Tools header contains a Format tool tab, which includes buttons to crop, rotate, and otherwise modify a picture.

  • Container Tools This tool tab set appears whenever you insert or select a Visio container. The orange Container Tools header contains a Format tool tab, which includes buttons to size and style containers, and to control container membership.

Add-in tabs are associated with software that adds capabilities to Visio. Some add-ins are packaged with Visio by Microsoft; others are sold by third-party software vendors.

Unlike tool tabs, add-in tabs look and behave exactly like permanent Visio tabs with one primary exception: they appear when an add-in application is active and disappear when it is not. Here are two examples:

  • Org Chart This add-in is included with Visio and is activated whenever you create or edit a drawing that uses either of the Visio organization chart templates.

  • TaskMap This third-party add-in provides easy-to-use process mapping, analysis, and improvement functions that can be used with any edition of Visio.
