  • 1. Again: Slow loading of a Visio 2003 drawing
    Hi, I am having trouble with loading drawings in Visio 2003 on my laptop (Win XP). They mostly take up two to five minutes to load for a <1Mb drawing. I can have the drawing load quicker if I temporally shut down the McAfee scanner, or if I do NOT use Windows offline folders. Especially the mappings to the stencils, included in this drawing that are also on offline folders seem to take a lot of time. The problem is that I DO need the virus scanner, and I DO need offline folders, to make sure my files are constantly in sync with my colleagues that also use Visio 2003 on a laptop in the same projects. I use a Dell Inspiron 5150 with P4/3GHz/768Mb on XP Pro. I tried Visiclean and a lot of other tools, but they do not seem to improve the loading. Does anyone have a suggestion for speeding up the loading of those files? Thanks, Arnold
  • 2. Images disappearing
    I am having a problem with Visio 2000 and VNE. I am creating a floor plan with all desktops, printers, etc. and am using a jpg image of the floor blueprint as a background and adding the shapes for the PCs, printers, etc. on top. Some of these PC shapes were created from images as well. The problem is that when I open my document, the background picture is gone - the shape is still there, but instead of the image it's based on, there is a black "x" through the entire shape. This has happened before with some of the PC shapes based on images, but since the background has done this, the PC images are back. I have tried deleting/recreating the directory cache and also tried opening the document with the Visio 2003 viewer, but the problem persists. Dan

  • 4. I would need a "Multi-tree square" object with just end arrows?
    I would need a Multi-tree square object with just end arrows. When adding arrows to the ends there also appears a double arrow <-> at the midle of the tree? How can I prevent that? Aviously I could use just several Dynamic conectors but what I wish to be able to use Multi-tree square object for convinience.

Using the keyboard arrows

I usually nudge my objects around using the keyboard arrows but for some 
reason Visio refuses to accept the input anymore.  Using the arrows scrolls 
the whole page up and down, even when an object is selected.

I've scoured the menus and options but cannot find anything to remedy this 
and it makes it almost impossible to work.

Anyone have any ideas??
