  • 3. Printing one pg item (visio), only prints 2nd 1/2 of page. Help?
    I have a one page flowchart in Visio 2003. It fits an 8 1/2 x 11 page on print preview screen. When printed, only get 2nd half of the flowchart on the page, as though it only started printing from that point. All settings seem normal, am able to print normally in Word. Opened other visio flowcharts that had printed normally 30 minutes ago, and now only getting 2nd half of page.

Anyone know how I can import a normal .doc WORD file which has our schools 
plan into a trial copy of visio 2007.  Was going to us Smartdraw but thought 
as WORD already in use it would be easy to import into another Microsoft 
programme. 

Any assistance would be much appreciated. 

Thanks

Since Word is a text tool and Visio is a diagramming tool, what would be the 
purpose. You might consider just hyperlinking to the word document instead.

Al
I was hoping to incorporate this TEXT file into Visio and enable me to edit 
and scale pre-existing school floor plans that were originally drawn in WP5.1

Thanks

That's an interesting approach.  Generally, if the bulk of the document is 
text, with a few diagrams, then you'd import in the opposite direction, 
graphic content into text document.  That's easy enough to do. 

 Is there a problem with the WP graphics?  You could go into Word, copy the 
graphic, and paste into Visio (say, onto a background page), then re-draw in 
Visio.  Once re-drawn, throw away the background image.  This will give you a 
scalable drawing to put back into Word.  Seems like a lot of work.  

Or perhaps just save the WP graphic and convert to a raster format?

Thanks,
Does seem alot of work but thought BOTH Microsoft products would be 
completely compatible. Have now obtained better plans in both .pdf and .dwg 
formats so will use a different software package like AutoCad or Solid Works 
to incorporate and edit plans. 

Thanks again.

Sounds like you have an efficient solution.  It's not so much an issue of 
compatibility with the MS products, but rather an issue with the format of 
the graphic imbedded in the Word document.

I am working on a conversion from MSO shapes to Visio drawings and I 
probably can not help you at this point, but I would be interested in seeing 
your Word document to see how the WP drawing is represented in Word. Could 
you send me a copy of the document to  XXXX@XXXXX.COM ?

I got the following response. I'm having trouble even running Ms
Meister's example, but I'd appreciate any light you can shed on how I
handle Visio if I can activate it.


Cindy Meister responded:

Well, I can only give you the Word side of things. You'll need to ask
in a Visio group to get help with automating Visio.

Any OLE object embedded in a Word document is - as far as Word is
concerned - a graphic. It's either an InlineShape (Word treats it like
a text character) or a Shape (text wrap formatting is applied).


Both InlineShapes and Shapes have an OLEFormat.Object property that
lets you activate and access the automation interface of an OLE object.

Mainly, I do this with Excel, so here's an example for that you can use

as a basis:


Sub ExcelObject()
    Dim of As Word.OLEFormat
    Dim oXL As Excel.Workbook


    Set of = ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1).OLEFormat
    of.Activate
    Set oXL = of.Object
    Debug.Print oXL.Name
End Sub


Note that you have to set a reference to the object library of what you

want to manipulate if you want to use intellisense. Otherwise, you have

to Dim oXL As Object (late-binding). I recommend you at least start
with a reference and Intellisense if you don't know Visio's object
model at all. At a later point you can remove it and change any
declarations to use the Object type.


Now you have to work with the Visio folks to find out


1. What type of object is stored in a Word document
2. How to declare and refer to that in your code
3. The syntax to save it to a separate file.

3.Visio 2007 objects embedded in Word Files

I'm running Visio 2007 Standard and Word 2000 (company setup) and if I have 
an embedded Visio object in Word and go to edit it, I have an issue.

In Word, if I do a Right-click -> Visio Object -> Open, No Problem.

However, if I do a Right-click -> Visio Object -> Edit, Visio (or maybe 
Word) blows away my custom12.vsu and replaces it with the default file 
blowing away my custom toolbars, macros, etc.

Anyone know how to stop this from happening?

Thanks!

4.Creating a Visio Addon - Visio Library File (.vsl) using C#

Hi,

I have developed a project in VC++ 2005 which creates a Visio Library file 
(.vsl) as the output which can be included with MS Visio as a addon.

I am not very familiar with Visual C#, but want to incorporate the entire 
VC++ 2005 Visio Library functionality in C#. Is it possible to create a .vsl 
Library file as a shared add-in using C#?

Also there is a database connection through ODBC which stores certain 
properties and methods associated with shapes created on the Visio document. 
Is it possible to maintain the same recordset which i am using currently in 
VC++.

It will be very good if there is some direct procedure to import the entire 
VC++ project in C# which maintains the same output. (i.e.) Create a Visio 
Library (.vsl) file with same functionality as in VC++ 2005

Regards,

Saresh

5.Saving embedded Visio objects as Visio files

Our Word documents include Visio objects whose original files are now
scattered. I need VBA to do the equivalent of double-clicking to open
the object in Visio, saving as a file, and then returning to Word to
find the next Visio object. I've been looking at examples of calling
other apps, but I don't understand how to move between Word and Visio
as I described. Any example code would be a big help.
