Visio: Hide and Show Layers

A very effective way in Visio of making a complex diagram easier to understand is placing items on different layers and making them visible or invisible depending upon the situation.

In  Visio you can use the View > Layers window to place connectors or shapes on different layers; for example in this diagram you can hide and show either the audio or video wiring by pressing a button.  For more about the code for the button and the details, see this update.
