  • 1. Customising Exisiting Shapes
    I am using an organization chart template and wish to customize two shapes, 'Executive' and 'Manager' to use several different custom property fields, asking for input of the data when the shape is dropped onto the page. Simple enough t do using the custom properties, deleting the existing properties. However, when I then store the customised shapes on a custom stencil and then go to use them in a drawing, on dropping the shape onto the page, original deleted properties re-appear and the shape is re-sized. I want to stop this behaviour, while keeping the aspects of the organisation chart properties (i.e. connection to other shapes on drop etc). At the moment I guess it is due to the shape being linked to the original master of 'Executive' and 'Manager', but being relatively new to Visio I can't figure out how to stop the behaviours occurring. I would be grateful for anyones help! MS Visio 2003 Standard

  • 3. XP Interface
    I am building my senior project. I would like to use Visio to pre-design my screen layouts and then use that to convert to Visual Basic. I have found the help on building the XP Interface and the XP Wizards. Once I have completed building my pages, what do I need to do to get the pages into Visual Studio/VB? Using Office Visio 2007 and Visual Studio 2005. Thanks.

    Hi, How to rotate the dates on a time line bar by 90 degrees (left or right)? In my attempts, the weekdates are unreadable because they overlap if 0 degrees. I will overlook the proper command. -- Mvg, Frans
  • 5. Accessing Custom Properties of a master without creating an instance
    Hi, Is it possible to access the custome properties of a Master shape without creating an instance of it in the drawing? i.e. is there an equivalent to Shape.Get_CellsU(cellName) for Masters? thanks Neil
