  • 1. Connection Points Bug in Visio 2003
    Hi, I just found a minor Connection Point Bug in Visio 2003. If you have a Shape that was imported from Visio 2002 and that shape had a non-default Connection Type, one is unable to change the Connection Type in Visio 2003 via right clicking on the Connection point. The drop down dialog never appears. Thank You, Scott Metzger

Cannot drag a shape

Postby SnUtTWFu » Thu, 15 May 2008 05:57:02 GMT

Hello,
I'm using Visio 2003. I cannot drag a shape from the shapes Windows unto the 
drawing. However I can copy and paste it there. But once it's there, I can 
only resize it but not drag it anywhere. Any ideas? Seems like there is a 
protection or shape lock somewhere. I've been through all the menus and 
couldn't figure it out.
Thanks in advance.

Does this happen in other programs as well? What about selecting a
block of text with the mouse, does that work? Does any other drag and
drop operation have problems?
I'm presuming that this is a new installation of Visio.

a. Check that you have the latest video drivers for your machine.
b. Reduce any hardware acceleration - Control Panel -> Display

check help file for "protection"

select object and either right click, find protection in sub-menu or go to 
menu at top of screen to find it

But that would only affect the shape once it was on the diagram.

I had the same problem. I cannot drag and drop objects in Visio. I can
however copy paste or resize them. I can also move the object with the
cursos. However I found out that I also could not move my desktop
icons anymore. Logout - login did not work but a reboot did the job
for me.

3.problem dragging "searched" shapes onto workspace

Hi,

In vision 2003 standard edition, I use the search function to get shapes
which appear to come from microsoft, and use them in my diagrams.

However recently I have been getting the error;

"Visio is unable to create a shape using this master shortcut.
The target master cannot be found in the target document.

Target document: EXCOBJ_M.VSS
Target Master: IMAP virtual server"

I can search for the shapes, but when I drag them into the document, Vision
hangs for about a minute and then displays that error. Sometimes when I go
back and try it again, the shape works again for a while, but then the error
comes back.

I applied visio SP1 when it came out, which was before this problem starting
happening.

Any idea what might be causing this?

Cheers,

Tom H


4.UserForm on Shape drag-n-drop

Hi,

I need some help on finding a place where I can specify that a UserForm I created, 
is displayed each time the specified shape is dragged-n-dropped on the page. I have 
created a UserForm and VBA script managing that Form but I can't find anywhere an 
option which tells the form to popup on drop. TIA.

5.Visually Counting Specfic Shapes as you drag them to the sheet

I was wondering if you are able to Visually Count a specfic selected shapes 
as you drag them to the sheet.  The outcome is that I want to drag a specific 
shape to the sheet and then the number 1 appears on it - then as I drag 
another onto the sheet the number 2 appears and so on - but I also want to 
have the ability to delete a shape and the shape would recount itself - I 
know about the addon but it counts all shapes that are dragged on.  Thanks
