Global command to remove all connectors; saving as a WORD document; Visio Viewer?

Postby plucero » Thu, 04 Jan 2007 06:14:29 GMT

When one creates a flowchart that spans several pages, is there a way
to globally remove all connectors?
Is there a way to globally remove them at least for a page?
Also, a developer here who I do Visio flowcharts for doesn't have Visio
and wanted me to save a diagram as a Word Document.  That was not a
file/save as document format available in 2003....  Is there a way to
do this???
Is there a Visio Viewer?
Thanks ,

There is a visio viewer on microsoft downloads. There is not a global 
command to remove connectors.

Here is a trick to select all connector :
When you drop a connector a layer "Connector" is automatically created. So 
you can use the "select by type" command of the edit menu. Choose "layer" 
Check "Connector" to select all the connector. Click OK and delete the

I got the following response. I'm having trouble even running Ms
Meister's example, but I'd appreciate any light you can shed on how I
handle Visio if I can activate it.

Cindy Meister responded:

Well, I can only give you the Word side of things. You'll need to ask
in a Visio group to get help with automating Visio.

Any OLE object embedded in a Word document is - as far as Word is
concerned - a graphic. It's either an InlineShape (Word treats it like
a text character) or a Shape (text wrap formatting is applied).

Both InlineShapes and Shapes have an OLEFormat.Object property that
lets you activate and access the automation interface of an OLE object.

Mainly, I do this with Excel, so here's an example for that you can use

as a basis:

Sub ExcelObject()
    Dim of As Word.OLEFormat
    Dim oXL As Excel.Workbook

    Set of = ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1).OLEFormat
    Set oXL = of.Object
    Debug.Print oXL.Name
End Sub

Note that you have to set a reference to the object library of what you

want to manipulate if you want to use intellisense. Otherwise, you have

to Dim oXL As Object (late-binding). I recommend you at least start
with a reference and Intellisense if you don't know Visio's object
model at all. At a later point you can remove it and change any
declarations to use the Object type.

Now you have to work with the Visio folks to find out

1. What type of object is stored in a Word document
2. How to declare and refer to that in your code
3. The syntax to save it to a separate file.

2.Global command to embed all graphics in document?

I am using Word 2007 on a Windows XP SP3 platform.

1. I use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to a work station in a 
different state.

2. On the remote desktop, I create a document using a different authoring 
tool, and then publish to Word.

3. I open the Word output, and the Word document contains all screen 
captures and graphics.

4. I save the Word file to a public server.

5. I exit the Remote Desktop Connection application.

6. On my local workstation, I navigate to the public server and copy the 
Word document.

7. I paste the Word document onto the HD on my local workstation.

8. When I open the locally-saved Word document, it does not contain a single 
screen capture or graphic.

Is there a global command I can use, so that when I open the Word document 
on the remote desktop, it embeds all screen captures and graphics so they 
stay with the document no matter where it might be relocated?

Thank you!

3.Word Viewer - viewing revised document without revision balloons?

I have a revised Word document that I set up to show revisions. When I edit 
it, Word shows revisions without showing "balloons" for each word deleted or 
replaced. I can view the document using Word viewer. I don't want to see the 
"balloons" showing the words I deleted or replaced, but Word Viewer shows the 
"balloons" for each word I deleted or replaced. I can't figure out how to 
turn this off in Word Viewer.  I know I could delete the revisions from the 
document, but for my purposes I need to be able to see the revisions.

I want to prevent the user from saving the document under certain

Is there an event like QuerCancelSave (I suppose that no)...
In this case, how can I "emulate" this?

with "own versions" (mapping to addin) that redirect calls if needed to

5.How to remove hidden manual feed print command from Word document

Without "reveal codes" (like old WordPerfect) one cannot see the formating 
that Word inserts.  Someone, in editing my document, inadvertantly inserted a 
"manual feed" in the print command.  I have tried to re-select "auto select", 
and the dialog boxes reflect that, but the document will NOT print 
auto-select.  Manual feeding an 80 page document is not acceptable. 

How does one either find and remove, or simply remove, that hidden print
