12 shapes in 1 stencils of shapes (1 metric and 1 in US units, all in Visio VSS, VSSX and VSDX formats) that can be used to create Finite State Machine diagrams. The templates provide a blank drawing canvas and define the way connections flow on drawings.
All the symbols have connection points at suitable locations.
Transitions may also be set to be curved, straight or angled from the shape's right-click menu.

All these example drawings were created using these shapes in Microsoft Visio.

These examples are taken from those shown on the Wikipedia Finite State Machine page.
