Version 7 corrects another coloring problem with the single-role deontic mandatory constraints: the deontic 'o' now has its proper white fill. (To upgrade v.6 diagrams to allow the new, v.7 deontic 'o' on the mandatory constraints, see the readme.txt file.) Also, the role-pair connector is now easily changed from solid to dashed, and vice versa, from its context menu. As of version 3, the readme file also includes a new, better discussion of stencil version management, and of installation details.The ORM2_Draw2 Visio stencil for ORM diagrams is an updating and upgrading of the ORM2_Draw Visio stencil which itself resulted from ORM stencil development by various people, including Peter Ritson, Terry Halpin, and Andy Carver. It is an updating in that it updates (for Visio 11, 12, and ff.) the Table shape, and includes the deontic constraints and value-comparison constraints. It is an upgrading in that it adds built-in shadowing (for fact types and object types), built-in text-arrows (for fact types), built-in constraint-connectors, and some adjustable-arity fact types, as well as several relatively minor upgrades and fixes, including a frequency constraint.
Version 1's stencil (.vss) and template (.vst) files were created, based on ORM2_Draw, during the Winter of 2008-9, by Andy Carver with the help and supervision of Dr. Terry Halpin. The files have been tested and used pretty extensively in both Visio 10 and Visio 12. A readme.txt file is included.
