I want to provide a tool to a client to draw charts in a custom style (company guidelines).
I thought Visio could come in handy to do that, but how do I create some chart-alike shapes with a nice lay-out (bevel, dropshadow, ...) in order to be reused by the client?
So, to summarize:
1) how to build shapes?
2) how to "provide" them in the best way to a client? (can shapes be installed? are there templates?)
3) can they contain pixel images (e.g. for nice bevels, shadows, ...) or does Vision only support vector format?
Any hints, links, scenarios to get me started would be nice!
