    I am using Visio 2000 Professional and create my org charts from Excel and the org chart wizard. I noticed the custom properties has a format for photos, but I do not know how to insert the photo or path to the photo. Also, can the photo automatically display with the org chart or would you have to manually view custom properties in each box? -- Cherie

  • 5. How do I draw multiple arrowheads on the same line?
    I am creating a flow chart with many boxes connecting into one. Because the connectors merge together before reaching the destination box, my co-workers want to see multiple arrowheads along the length of each connector so they can tell the direction of the flow is toward the box and not back up one of the other connectors.

Moving dynamic connector connection points - how?

Postby Gary Faulkner » Thu, 30 Oct 2003 07:13:05 GMT

I am working with a database ERD created using the 
Visio "Database Model Diagram" template (2002 SR-1 
v10.0.2514).   I have a dynamic connector defining a 
foreign key relationship in my diagram.  The dynamic 
connector attaches to both table objects on the bottom 
edge.  I would like to have the dynamic connector 
attached to the top edge of both objects.  I am looking 
for a way to relocate the connection point of a dynamic 
object to another edge of the same object it is currently 
connected to.  Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

1.Connection points move when dynamic connectors are lengthened!!??!

I am working on electrical schematics in Visio 2003 and I've added connection 
points on dynamic connectors as wire junctions. However, whenever I 
stretch/lengthen/move the connector, the connection point moves and screws up 
the associated junction. Is there a way to keep the connection points from 
moving when the connector end points are moved?

2.dynamic connector shape with outward/inward connection points

I use Visio as the graphic interface of the simulating program. 
The mathematical blocks have inputs and outputs. 
For block's inputs it is possible to use inward connection point.
For block's outputs it is possible to use outward connection point.
But for wire's are necessary appropriate connection points.
In Visio2002 I have not found dynamic connector 
shape with outward and inward connection points.

Help me to create such dynamic connector shape.

4.Add connection point to a dynamic connector

Hi there,

Can anyone tell me how I should go about adding a connection point to a 
(curved) dynamic connector?  I'd like to drop another shape onto the mid 
point of the connector to describe the conection relationship (ie a red dot, 
or a green dot etc.).

I can't work out how to build a formula for the connection point that will 
always point to the centre of the line.

Any clues?

Thanks

John 


5.Dynamic connectors and connection points ...

My 2-cents
    dynamic connectors are a hard to customize - since you never know how
many legs, bends, etc.
    connection points are located by X,Y within a shape's coordinates
    dynamic lines are up to visio to locate
    so even if you place a connection at .25,.25 you are not guaranteed that
it will be on the drawn line.

There is a limitation with what you can do in the shape sheet. You can
overcome this limitation with an addon, but then it is an addon.

I am not sure exactly of your ?, but if you are needing spaced connection
points on a straight line, then that is possible.
