Jackson Structured Design for Visio

JSD for Visio consists of a stencil, template and add-on for Visio for the creation of all Jackson diagrams i.e. Specification, Implementation and Structure diagrams. A few shapes for Jackson design were provided in old versions of Visio Pro but they were incomplete and wrong.

This software works with:

  • Microsoft Visio 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 (any version, Standard, Professional or Premium).

After downloading, create a folder (typically "C:\Program Files (x86)\Visio stuff\JSD")
and unzip the zip file into this folder. Copy the address of the folder that the software is installed to, start Visio and paste this path into the 'Add-ons path', 'Template path' and 'Stencils path' as follows:
  • Visio 2000/2002/2003/2007: menu Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> File Paths
    Now restart Visio. JSD will be available from the File -> New menu
  • Visio 2010/2013/2016: ribbon File -> Options -> Advanced -> File Locations.
    Now restart Visio. JSD will be available from the File -> New menu
I've decided to release the full source code for this project, you can download it below. You will need Delphi 6. There is no support provided for this software.
