  2. You can, though there is not much available to assist you with the isometric
    perspective. Under Tools > Snap & Glue you can set you own angle for
    snapping lines, but the grid will not display isometrically.

    just search the web using "visio & isometric" You will get back a link to
    a dude in Japan. He did a really great job on isometric shapes including
    isometric fonts.

    From a usage perspective, I modified them for shading, light source,
    angle, and dimensions via custom properties (no vba). Took about 30 min
    for the cube...took a day for the cylinder because there is not a real
    nice way I found to add connection points on an elipse.

    He really did a nice job with them.

    Note, he does have some VBA stuff in some shapes of his stencil for things
    like autofill but I dont use them because of security concerns.
