  • 1. Text Block tool
    Hi Folks, I'm a new user to Visio, and would like to be able to adjust the text position within the objects I'm using for my flowcharts. The help file says the "Text Block" tool, the icon for which looks like a hand-drawn loop with an "A" in the middle, will do this, but I have been unable to find that option in any menu or toolbar. I'm sure it's simple... could someone please tell me how to access it? Thanks... and best regards, Charles S.

Changing Page setting on multple pages

My visio files typically have 30 to 40 pages.

I sometimes have to change page size (or other page setting) on all or many 
of these at once.  You would think there was a way to do this without going 
to each page.????

That is where you get to learn how to play with VBA.  ;-)

It would be a nice feature, but they have to balance against feature bloat. 
So since it is easy to write a VBA script, is the feature really needed.

I have set up VBA code routines to switch from A4 to letter size. So why do 
you have to change page settings?

One persons feature bloat is another's essential tool.

Look at the nice tabular dialog box for editing layer properties for example.
I don't have to open a separate dialog for each layer.  I get to view that 
pattern of properties across all layers (Which is valuable in itself)  and 
changes the ones I want.  Why not  a similar approach to page properties?

In my latest example, The house I'm designing has changed size.  I need to 
change the PDF page size for all drawings (pages) from 24x36 down to 21x28.  
I always need to print all my pages at the same size.  Bt the size needed can 
go up or down as design progresses.  The pages can be different scales 
however: site plans one sacle, floor plans and elevations another, details a 
third scale.

1.Retaining "zoom" settings on page changes via hyperlinks (Visio: Save as Web Page)

New to Visio and Web technologies.

I have created a multi-page flowchart which I save as Web Page(s).

Within Visio, when defining a hyperlink there is no facility on the 'Sub
Address: Browse: Zoom' control to allow the selection of "current zoom"
(understandably perhaps, as this parameter can be defined at 'run-time').

What I want to do is retain the currently selected Zoom setting and have it
applied to all pages that are subsequently displayed via hyperlinks (in the
web environment).

I've no doubt that this was once a common question - but my searches have
not come up with an answer.

2.change the background of a page when the page orientation changes

I have a landscape background page for landscape foreground pages and a 
portrait background page for portrait foreground pages.  Is there an easy way 
to automatically set the background page based on the print orientation or is 
VBA the best way to go?

I am able to change the background of a page using:
Visio.Application.ActivePage.BackPage = "My Background Page Name"

But I am not sure what I should trigger off of to change my background page. 
 Can someone point me at an event and possibly a code snippet or example?

Thanks in advance.

3.Page Orientation - Set it Per Page?

Is it possible to set the page orientation (portrait or landscape) for 
individual pages? If so, then how?

Whenever I set the page orientation, it is applied to all pages in the 
document. I'd like for some to be portrait and some landscape.


4.cannot set page orientation for every page

How can I set each page's paper orientation to either Landscape or Portrait 
whenever I add a page using Visio automation or VBA in macros? 

5.How do I set zoom page size to 150% for all pages upon opening

I have large visios which are created with numerous zoom levels.  I would 
like to be able to set all zoom levels to 150% upon opening.  Page zoom 
levels in original visio are set to anywhere from 50% to 200%.  I want them 
all to be 150% without having to set each one and then save the document.
