How can I create a stick figure in visio?

The Microsoft program, Visio, creates flowcharts and diagrams consisting of shapes, text, hyperlinks and arrows. The program includes a number of basic and complex shapes from a simple circle to a stick figure. If you wish to create an original stick figure, connect several shapes until they resemble a human figure. If you prefer the program's original shapes, add the stick figure shape to your drawing.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Visio and click on the "New File" button.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Open Template" button and scroll to "Diagram."

  3. 3

    Look through the "Shapes" window and left-click on a circular shape. Drag the shape into the centre of the diagram and release the mouse button.

  4. 4

    Resize the shape, if desired. Click on the bottom corner of the shape until a green box appears. Drag the bottom corner of the green box inward to shrink the shape. Drag it outward to increase the size of the shape.

  5. 5

    Connect the circular shape to a long, oval or rectangle. Click on the "Connector" tool and left-click on the oval or rectangle. Drag the oval or rectangle under the circle. Release the mouse button.

  6. 6

    Click on the "Connector" tool then on a long, vertical rectangle. Drag and drop the rectangle so it rests on the bottom-right corner of the torso. Add another rectangle on the bottom-left corner of the torso.

  7. 7

    Add the automatic stick figure to a diagram or flow chart. Click inside the "Search" bar and enter "People." Left-click on the "People" shape and drag it onto the diagram or flowchart.
