  • 4. script to extract shapes out of vsd
    I downloaded the Nortel Visio icons which contained several individual documents with one shape per document. I want to convert this to one or more organized stencils. I'm pretty sure this could be scripted, but I'm not sure exactly where to start and I don't want to spend a week trying to get it figured out. Are there any script wizards out there that can help me flesh out following logic? Create a new stencil For each vsd file specified get the device name from the filename open the document create a new master shape on the stencil from the document.icon close the document Close the stencil It seems simple enough, but any help would be greatly appreciated. dMn

How can I create global hyperlinks?

Hello all,

I have been working on a network diagram for my company. I want to be able 
to drill down from our overall server floor image to individual racks, by 
inserting hyperlinks into my drawing. However, the hyperlinks seemingly only 
work on my local computer, meaning that others would have to insert the 
hyperlinks themselves.

Is there any way I can place a hyperlink on an object that can be seen 
universally? The drill down function would seem handicapped if there was no 
way to do such.

Note: I think I've developed a workaround. I'm going to insert pages, copy 
and paste drawings, and then hyperlink to the pages through the sub-link 
option. I'm assuming this is the best/only way to do this?

Are the documents that you are linking to always in the same folder?
Hyperlinks can either be relative to the current document or they can
have a fixed address. Whichever you use must be consistent with folder
addresses on the appropriate computers.

You came up with a good solution... keep the diagrams in a single file
and link to the pages instead of to other files.  That avoids the
issue of maintaining the same folder structure on other machines.  We
run Visio demonstrations for rack diagrams where we've structured the
hyperlinks like that.

1.How do i create a global macro?

I created a template from which i created vsd files. However, when updating 
the macros of this template(i.e. upgrading it), my old vsd files will not 
take these changes. In order to solve this problem, i thought of creating  
global macros from which my vsd files can read from all the time. How can i 
do this? Is it possible in Visio 2003? are there any other ways to solve this 

2.Creating Global Data

Is there a way to create a global data structure (or variable) that is 
accessible by more than 1 shape?

I would like the data to be used by several shapes, but would like to change 
the data in only one place? Is this possible?

Everything I have tried just creates a new instance of data, if I change the 
value of the orginal shape, the value in the assigned shapes does not change.

3.Global update hyperlink address

A organizational change has prompted a request to re-assign a former folder 
on the network to a different group. The current folder "owners" heavily use 
hyperlinks within workbooks to other workbooks or documents. Is there a way 
to globally update all hyperlinks to point to a new top level folder on the 
network and retain all subfolder information?
ex: Old address M:\Engineering\...... will now be M:\ChemEngineering..... changes to hyperlinks?

can any kind people out there help me
find out how to apply global change (or any
other way beside doing each hyperlink individually) 
of address path of all of the hyperlinks
in the spreadsheet?


5.Changing hyperlink addresses (global)?

Hello group,

I got an excel sheet with a large number of links to pictures.
Unfortunately, the chap who created the sheet entered the links as
absolute addresses (say, a:\bbb\ccc\xyz.tiff), and the links refer to a
drive that doesn't exist on my own computer.
This is obviously a nuissance, I want to just use the hyperlink base
address in the properties part.
Question, how do I change the absolute adresses, "stripping" the drive
letter and superfluous directory info from the links?

Thanks for you help.
