  • 2. Editing Shape text boxes when the Text Tool is selected
    Hi, When I edit text associated with a Visio Shape whilst I have the Text Tool on the Standrd Toolbar selected the image on screen moves so that the text to be edited is at the bottom left corner of the screen. With any other Toolbar icons selected this does not happen. Is there a way of disabling this - other than never using the Text Tool? Help please.

Does anyone know of a commercial or free library of existing Visio stencils 
for common C++/C# classes (in UML) ?

That is on my UML class diagrams i want to be able to reference STL items 
like a List or Array or Map.

4.Crowfoot (Crowfeet) Notation used in MS Visio 2003


I have been using Visio 2003 and Crowfeet notation to create my ER-Diagram.
However in literature I cannot find a source where it's being used.
Especially with the addition of 'identifying' and 'non-identyfying' 

I need to turn this in as coursework but I can't unless I reference a 
source. (There is nothing on Microsoft's website or in the Visio 
documentation.... :((
