Working with TreeMap Visio Template

After you create a document from a template, it will be empty. In the contextual menu of the page there is "Show Disks" function. This operation always should be first.

As a result on page will be presented logical disks which are available in the computer.

In the contextual menu of each disk there are functions: Expand, With Files, Select, TreeMap. Let's open drive E. using "Expand".

 One operation discloses a disk on 1 level. This shows only child folders. If you want also to show the files, use the command "With Files". Images of file and folder are different.
 
If automatically constructed image partially covers the previous, it can be pushed to the side. To do this, select folder or file and run the "Select" command. This selects all objects located below, and you can move them to the right place.
   
Now we process the same folder with TreeMap operation.
 TreeMap diagram appears on the free space.


The TreeMap diagram expands two levels of nesting in one step. In this example, the first level is disclosed horizontally, the second - vertically.
The largest files are large rectangles. Small files may merge into a line or a point.
Big boxes contain the name of the file as text. Small boxes are empty. In this case, to view the data, open the "Shape Data" window.
 The "Shape Data" window displays:
Weight - the volume of a file or folder, in bytes;
Text - the name of the file or folder;
State - in this application it is used for categorizing shapes on the file name extension. Shape translates this value in color;
Path - path to the file.
The next step, you can continue the disclosure of TreeMap diagram. This can be done directly on place. Or you can make a double of the shape and disclosure it.
 
You can move one of the boxes to the side, stretch it and to disclose in this form.

 The template allows you to process several folders. The two TreeMap diagrams easily coexist on a single page.
Shapes are hyperlinked.
 Clicking on the hyperlink, you can go to view the file in the associated application. For example, you can open the PDF file.
