Everything you wanted to know about Themes and shapes

Tim Davenport, a Visio Program Manager on my team, has written an MSDN article that gives a ton of great information about our new themes feature and in particular, how to design Visio shapes that work well with themes.  Check it out here:  http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa445858.aspx

    Where is an appropriae place to comment about interface issues?  Specifically, the new version is still terribly modal when it comes to tweaking a shape.  Constant revisits to the right click are still needed to format and manipulate an object.

    Thanks for the feedback, Thys.  I’d love to hear more specifics about what dialog boxes in the UI you are constantly going back to as you do your tweaking.  Feel free to drop me an line using the Email button.
