Version 14 adds a Visual Basic macro (user-run) for setting the object-type shapes' shadows, and which also does a fair amount of model-checking along the way; automatic management of the appearance and hiding of the text arrows, as you rotate or flip a fact type; and removal of the possibility of accidental, manual rotation of the fact-type text -- and of inadvertently breaking thereby the automation of that fact type's text-angle adjustment. As of versions 3 and 9, the readme file also includes new, better discussions 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 internal and external frequency constraints. Since version 1, many other improvements have been added (see the readme file).
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.
