Visio 2016 Electrical Engineering Shapes

While researching a new PowerPoint deck on Visio 2016, I came across a supposed update to the Electrical Engineering stencil.


Unfortunately, the way I learned how to draw EE shapes, long before Visio existed when I was getting my EE degree, was what was in Visio 2013. The bold lines in 2016 are distracting and so is the misalignment of the “wires”. The stubs on the components is also distracting.

2020 update: If you go looking for the stencil, you may find one labelled 2020. That is the old stencil.
