Am I ging about this the long way or is there a shortcut that works? Thanks, milco St. Louis, MO

Visio line format lost when imported into Word

When I import a diagram with dashed lines in Visio into a Word document, the 
dashed lines are converted to solid lines. The only way I've found to correct 
it is to draw the dashed line (or circle, square...) in Word, copy it, open 
the Visio diagram in the Word document (by double-clicking on the diagram), 
then paste the Word line into the Visio window. Then the original Visio line 
can be removed and replaced by the new Word line.
If anyone knows a simpler technique to move broken Visio lines into a Word 
document, I'd be happy to hear it.

Hi M.,

What version of Word, what version of Visio, what format you saving the files in from Visio and what method are you using to import
them into Word?

Hey Bob, thanks for the reply.
I use Office Word 2003 SP, part of Office Pro 2003.
And Visio Standard 2003 SP2.
I save the Visio files in the basic .vsd format.
I "embed" the Visio files into the Word document by copying (^A ^C) the 
Visio diagram, and pasting it (^V) into the Word document.

I've got the same problem when I have rectangles with dashed lines. the 
problem seems to be with the size of the rectangle - I've got some small ones 
that work fine and big ones that don't. And because I was interested to see 
when it breaks I kept changing the size and came up with the following: at 
68mm wide and 64 mm high it works fine. Change it to 68*65 and it doesn't.

I'm using Word 2002 sp3 and visio professional 2003 sp1.

2.Saving a multi-page file in a non-visio format for import to WORD

I would like to Save a multi-page file (10 pages of 
drawings) in non-visio formats for import to WORD, adobe 
illustrator, etc. However, when I go to save as, and 
select the relevant format, unless I choose the visio 
default, "drawing", as the file type, visio only saves a 
converted version of the drawing page that was currenlty 
highlighted in the multi-page visio file. I can't find 
anyhting on how to convert all ten pages in one fell 
swoop, as one file, for import. Does Visio allow this or 
does this actually require saving as for every single 
page, and then separate importing into WORD, ad nauseam!?

3.Visio shape losing formatting when copying diagram into Word

Whenever I attempt to copy certain Visio shapes (re-formatted to have a 
dotted line and re-sized larger) into Word, the dotted line formatting is 
lost and Word treats it as a solid line.

For example,
1) open new basic drawing
2) Drag 'square' shape from 'Basic Shapes'
3) Format/Line: set pattern to type '02' (dotted line)
4) Copy shape and paste into Word.

This works correctly without any problem.

However, now re-size the square to about 5 or 6 times it's original default 
size and copy back into Word. The line around the square is now shown as a 
solid line, rather than dotted as it was in Visio.

In Visio have tried the 'Copy Drawing' and 'Select All/Copy'.
In Word have tried 'Edit/Paste', 'Edit/Paste Special/Microsoft Visio Drawing 
Object' and 'Edit/Paste Special/Picture (Enhanced Metafile)' and numerous 
combinations of the various Visio copy and Word paste commands but all to no 
avail.

In summary, once the shape has been re-sized larger Word treats the dotted 
line as if it should be solid.

Any suggestions gratefully received...

4.Losing text formatting when saving as visio 2002 format

Hi,

I'm currently using Visio 2003 Standard SP2. However I always save drawings 
in visio 2002 format so that colleagues with that version can open them. 

All visio drawings I produce contain a footer that have a text logo in a 
font different to standard office fonts. 

The problem is whenever I save drawings as version 2002 I lose the text 
formatting for the company logo and it reverts to Arial which is not good. If 
i save as visio 2003 it is fine. 

How can I fix this???

Thanks in advance.
