  • 2. Visio 2002 EA Tool Windows are extremely frustrating
    Every time I open a tool window it opens in its default location on the screen. I use a dual-monitor setup so that I can avoid having all the tool windows of a program on the same screen as the main document. Microsoft must not want me to do this because they are working against me. What is so hard about making a simple function to read/write window positions from/to the registry or a file??? As a standard, I do this when developing even the simplest of applications. Does anyone know how to fix this or do I have to write my own freakin plugin to do it myself???
  • 3. Reporting a UML Class diagtram from Visio
    I have a Class model I have generated using the UML add on in Visio 2002 Professional. Before I start documenting everything in the tool (attribute and class descriptions etc) does anybody know if I can generate a class model report showing classes, attributes, relationships etc. The only report I can find simply outputs the diagram data (x, y coords etc) and has no logic to it in terms of UML constructs.

  • 4. Creating new drawing based on a Template
    Hi, I have created a template with some text blocks and rectangular frame around it. When I open a new Drawing(.vsd) file based on this template it does show me template outlook on first page(Page 1) of New drawing. But when I insert a new page (page 2) in Drawing (.vsd) file it doesn't show me the same outlook as I have in first Page (Page 1). Is there any way that I can apply template setting on all the pages on my New drawing file (.Vsd) file. or I have to create multiple drawing each of single page which I think is very odd solution Please advise. Thanks Pryank Rohilla
  • 5. Visio 2002 EA Refuses to Save Toolbar Customizations
    Hope someone knows a fix. My Visio 2002 for Enterprise Architects refuses to save modifications to the toolbars, including placement, icons additions (like the 'close file' icon, i.e., the little close folder), etc. It is really annoying. Does anyone know a fix? -- Skip Keats XXXX@XXXXX.COM

Having typed in a lot of information, I would like to see it in a "normal" 
outline view in Word. Is there a way to export the text to Word or just 
generically? I am using Visio 2007.

If you want to extract all the text from a diagram then you can use


there is an added menu to export all shape text which may do what you

1.Exporting a Word outline into Visio

Is there a way to build a Visio diagram(s) simply by export a Word document

Thanks for your help,


2.Visio crashed & now the info doesn't show in outline window

I have a rather detailed brainstorming file completed, but Visio crashed. 
When I opened the file again, the information is still in the Visio chart, 
but none of it is in the Outline window. I tried to export the data to see if 
it was there, but hidden somewhere, but nothing was in the file when I opened 
the XML file in Word and Excel.

Besides re-entering the data, is there any way to get it back in the Outline 


3.Problems getting back the outline window for a brainstorming diagr

I have Visio 2003 Professional in my office PC. 
I have a brainstorming diagram with a multi-level outline (around 4 levels). 
I do not get any warnings when I save the diagram but when I re-open it, the 
outline is empty. When I add a new topic to this existing diagram, the new 
topic does not appear in the outline window. The only way I can add a new 
topic is to use the options off the outline window. 

4.outline window doesn't display the tree

I'm using Brainstorming with Visio 2003, after I saved, closed Visio and
reopened it, the task pane display all the shapes and their relationship
correctly but the Outline window only displays my file name - is that a
feature or bug?  Would someone know how I can get back to my outline tree
from here? Thank you very much.

5.Moving topics and Subtopics in Outline Window?

We have a large project that has 3 diagrams with 1 Main topic, 25 Topics, and around 90 sub topics, and page size is 14 inches by 27 inches.  Is there a way from the Outline Window to sort and move up and down Topics and sub topics according to value associates with it?  If you right click a Sub topic and then move it up and down it does not update the diagram, it only does it in the Outline Window.

The way stuff needs to be sorted that each sub topic has a value associated with it ranging from 5000 to 300,000, and I want to sort them from highest to lowest, like you can do in Excel. Is there a function in Visio to do this or does it have to be done by hand for each one separately.

Also, this ties into the first question somewhat, is there a way to index or associate a shape (Topic) from page 1 to Page 2 and automatically update one if you change the other?
