    Hi everyone, We currently use Vision 2002, and are considering upgrading to a later version. A key requirement for us, would be that the .vdx file format for XML does not contain binary, unlike in Visio 2002. Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated, thanks Fiona

Where are the round rotation handles at each corner of a text box?

In Visio 2003, I'm trying to rotate text so that it aligns PERFECTLY (EVENLY) 
along the slanting right side of a triangle. According to the manual I'm 
reading, after I choose the text block (rotating) tool, I'm supposed to see 
"green selection handles...along with ROUND ROTATION HANDLES AT EACH CORNER 
OF THE TEXT BOX FRAME."  This works in Visio 2002...but in Visio 2003 I see 
ONLY the rotation handle on top of the text box frame, which (in the case of 
a triangle) only rotates the text box in 15 degree increments, so that I 
cannot align my text evenly along the slanting right side of the triangle.  
Is this a glitch?  HELP, PLEASE!  I'm really frustrated over this.  Thanks!

The single rotation handle replaces the corner handles in Visio 2003.  In 
both versions the increment of rotation is determined by the distance the 
cursor is from the shape.  Look in the status bar while you are rotating to 
see the increment.  Try grabbing the handle and making a larger sweeping 
motion with your mouse.  You will get finer increments.

2.Connector text position wrong when created with rounded corners

In Visio 2003 Professional, picture this:

1. Create an empty document without using a predefined drawing type; i.e. 
use Ctrl+N.
2. Using the connector tool create a connector anywhere in the document. 
Enter a bit of text for the connector. Text is centered on the connector, 
lovely.
3. In Format->Define Styles, select the Line for the "Connector" style. Set 
the Round Corners to 10 mm (any non-zero value will do, the bigger the 
better). Apply and close both dialogues.
4. Create a new _straight_ connector anywhere in the document using the 
Connector Tool. Enter a bit of text.

Notice how the text is not centered on the second connector? Why is that? 
Seems to happen for all connectors _created_ while the style has rounded 
corners. Setting the rounded corners after creating a connector works fine.

3.Visio 2007, associative(dependent) entity with rounded corners

Hi, How can I create an associative entity that has rounded corners in Visio 
2007?
I tried doing that from the lines properties but it doesn't work. I select 
one of the rounded corners click apply and OK but it stays the same.
Ofcourse I can achieve something like that using the rectangle tool, 
straight lines etc but what would be the point of using visio then.
Let me clarifiy a little, rouding corner works on a normal rectange drawing 
but not on entities. And I couldn't find anything like associative or 
dependent entity type.

Thanks in advance.

4.To add round corners to a rectangle

To add round corners to a rectangle, use in menu Format > Corners.

5.Rounded Corners in an Org Chart

I'm using Visio 2002 and would like to round the corners in an organization 
chart.  I've selected Format > Line and chosen one of the Round corner 
options, but whether I choose Apply or OK nothing happens.  What am I doing 
wrong?

Thanks.
