  • 1. Visio Help Pls?
    I am new to Visio. I have several questions and can't seem to find answers to. It is hard to find books on Visio 2003. I hope you can help. I have an org chart that I need to pubish to company website. I am trying to understand how this works. According to Visio 2003, I can save as webpage and when I do this I get a webpage to view. If I were to publish this page, I would need acces to publishing to my Company's Website. Do I need any other programs to be able to pubish? For instance Unix? or Dreamweaver? What are the steps when publishing an org chart? Can someone else publish the org chart from Visio if that person does not have a full rights to Visio? Also, if and when I publish to Company's website can a user run a report? I would greatly appreciate answers to my questions above. Thank you.
  • 2. Visio 2002 Saving as a JPG the lines are Anti Aliased.
    My second question is regarding saving drawings as JPG files. When I do this and view them in a graphics viewer (It does not seem to matter which graphic viewer). The lines are anti aliased. By this I mean they are not a solid black line. They have grey aliased lines next to the center black section of the line. On 45 degree lines this is even more pronounced. Is there anything I can do about this in Visio 2002? I know it is old, but thats all I have. Note that I did not have this problem in Visio 5 Pro. Thanks, --JoeH
  • 3. Visio 2002 Default Line size
    I go to more line weights and select a weight of "1" and click apply. This seems to set the size temporarily. The problem is that when I close Visio 2002 and open it again, the line weight comes back as a default of "3". Is there a way to make this default as a line weight of "1"? Thanks --JoeH
  • 4. Space Shapes
    I have created a floor plan that contains "L" and "T" shaped rooms. I am now creating a Space plan and I would like to know how to make "L" and "T" shapped spaces?
  • 5. Cross Functional Flow Chart
    I have created a cross functional flow chart using the stencil. I want to edit the label I typed into the functional band. The application does not appear to let me edit (change) this text.

Hyperlinks in Visio 2007

Postby UHJhZGVlcA » Sat, 14 Jun 2008 14:58:00 GMT

I am creating a hyperlink to a document from my visio image 
(INSERT-->Hyperlinks, check the relative path option). The document used for 
hyperlink will be avaliable sometime later in my code. I used to do the 
operation in Visio 2003 and it works fine. Now if I do the same operation in 
Visio 2007 then nothing works for me. On comparing the gif_1.htm files I 
found that the file created by visio 2007 got the extra string ../ in HREF 
section (Just before the document name). This extra part is causing my 
program to fail.
As per the FAQ of  Visio 2003 and Visio 2007, both the visio versions are 
almost same and creates equal no of files and folders. 
Can anybody help me to understand the exact reason and any option avaliable 
to remove the ../ from gif_1.htm file.

Thanks in advance.

3.Hyperlinks issue in Visio 2007 (Getting "../" in gif_1.htm file)

Hi All,
I am creating hyperlink to a document from a image in Visio 2007 by
using INSERT-->Hyperlinks (checking the relative path option). After
that I am saving it as web page and publishing it.
The complete web address of the document will be provided later by my
code. When I run my code hyperlinks doesn't work. I am unable to
understand the issue as the same works fine with Visio 2003. Then I
compared the gif_1.htm file of visio 2003 and visio 2007 for the same
and found that a extra string "../" has been inserted in HREF section
(just before the name of document to be linked) in Visio 2007 created
gif_1.htm. If I remove them mannually then everything works fine.

Can anybody help me out to understand the HTML behaviour in Visio 2003
and Visio 2007 and provide and workaround for that.

Thanks in advace


4.Hyperlinks issue in Visio 2007 (Getting "../" in gif_1.htm fil

You can't prevent Visio 2007 from inserting "../" in the web page files. So I 
guess the question is -- do you need your code to work just with Visio 2007 
or must your code work with web pages produced by both Visio 2003 and 2007? 

If just Visio 2007, then you can avoid the need to modify the gif_1.htm by 
changing the placement of the document that is the hyperlink target, i.e., 
ensure that the object of your hyperlink is one level higher in the Windows 
directory hierarchy than it was for Visio 2003 web pages.

If you need your code to work for both Visio 2003 and 2007, I think you're 
stuck with modifying the gif_1.htm file for the Visio 2007 case.

5.hyperlink to exe in Visio 2007

Visio 2002 and 2003 both allow hyperlinks that point to an executable. For 
example, a link to C:\windows\notepad.exe launches notepad when the user 
follows the link.

Visio 2007 allows you to create the hyperlink but doesn't let you follow it. 
("An error (100) occurred during the action Open File. Visio cannot open the 
file because it's not a Visio file or it has become corrupted.")

I'm sure this added security is "for my own good". But I want live on the 
wild side! I want to be able to include links to executables in my drawings!

I've looked in the Trust Center but haven't found a setting that allows me 
to override this behavior. Did I miss something? Any ideas how to allow links 
to .exe files?
