  • 1. Missing tooltips with published Visio file
    Hi, I'm using Visio 2003 Pro. Adding text to the description field when entering a hyperlink usefully provides that text as a tooltip within Visio. However when it is published to a web page the tooltip either just says "Click to follow hyperlink" or if there is text in the shape you are linking from, it repeats that text (not helpful because the user can see that anyway) plus say "Click to follow hyperlink". Is there any way you can get the description text to show? TIA Mike

  • 5. XDE newbie - What to use it for, how to get into it.
    Started a new project where Rational XDE is used with VS.NET. Though it seems its not really used consequently at developer level. Some VS projects have models, some don't. So my question is. What would me "economical" things to use it for, and how do I get there? By economical I mean that I do not have to spend a lot of time before I increase my productivity. People ive talked to don't think its a good idea to use it for reverse- engineering to understand existing code. ..If not I think the main use of UML is to communicate your design to others. If I'm not required to do that, - I don't think its much point in doing diagrams before I code? So I think the best would be to code first and then reverse-engineer so that I have diagram ready to discuss with others? About mining existing code...does it have any advantages over VS.NET? VS.NET has some weaknesses. For example go to reference doesn't work very well when there are many methods with a similar signature. (So its very difficult to figure out where something is called from). Lastly, what are good resources for getting into what I need? The only .NET XDE book seems to have bad critics. Is there for example a good resource which just explains how to reverse-engineer from scratch? I have previously done class- and sequence-diagrams with Magicdraw. (I'm posting this in a Visio-group. Really the best place I could find) Thanks Olav

Is it possible to have portrait and landscape pages within 
the same Visio file?  Every time I change the layout for 
one page it changes them all.  I am runing Visio 2000 
under NT4.

Yes. IIR UML diagrams don't like doing this but otherwise it's easy.

When you insert a new page the Page Setup dialog will come up. Select the
Page Size tab, custom size option button, then select page orientation.

Bingo!  Thank Chuck.  BTW, you need to use custom settings 
on all sheets, otherwise Page-1 seems to set the printed 
page for everything.


it's easy.
come up. Select the
page orientation.

On each page go to page setup and chose the appropriate page size and 
orientation. Within a Visio file you can have any combination of size or 
orientation. The key thing to watch out for is that within Page Setup, "Same 
as Printer" is NOT selected.

1.Print Setup, then Page Setup tab

This will probably seem trivial and obvious. 

I am trying to format a fairly large visio file. All drawings come out on 
four pages rather than one. I am trying to format the page. 

Most of this can be taken care of in the Page Setup tab, under Print Setup. 
My problem is that the Page Setup does not allow me to change the options, 
it's "frozen" can't click anything.

Any idea what's causing that. 

It's a visio 2003 file saved for 2000. I'm working in 2000.


2.Page setup affects all pages instead of desired page

I'm working on drawings of nine pages.  I want the first 
eight pages to be landscape orientation while the ninth 
page I want to be letter orientation.  However, every 
time I use "page setup" to change the orientation on page 
nine to letter, all the other pages change to letter as 
well.  The Visio help specifically states that "page 
setup" should only affect the current page. 
Is this a bug or do I need an upgrade. I'm running 2002 
SR-1 (10.0.2514).  If I need an upgrade what URL must I 
go to.

Also, is there a way to display the margin settings on 
the drawing page.  I only can see how my marging settings 
effect my work by looking at the print preview.  

Please email me your response if you can because I'm 
afraid I'll never find this group again. :)


3.Change page setup for _all_ pages in a document

Is there a way to change the page setup to A4 for all pages easily? Is it 
possible to do by code or, even better, inside Visio somewhere?


4.Page Setup Across Multiple Pages

Is there any way to select multiple pages (tabs) in order to modify the Page 
Setup properties for all those pages within a document?  The MS help talks 
about how being able to edit the page setup for each page independantly is a 
'feature', however in our case we have a lot of pages and would like to 
modify the page setup all at once.


5.Page Setup for Multi-Page Document in Visio2003?


I just upgraded to Visio 2003 (from 2000) and found that each page of a 
document has its own page setup parameters.  I have a 13 page document and 
regularly change the page setup parameters for printing.  

Is there any way to make the page setup parameters APPLY TO ALL PAGES OF A 
DOCUMENT at the same time?

Thanks for your help.
