  • 1. How do I convert Autocad drawings to editable Visio files?
    I'm a longtime Visio Technical 5.0 user. One of the features of 5.0 we use every day is the Autocad drawing conversion. When importing, you can either import each layer into a "Displayed Layer" or a "Editable Layer." We import into an Editable Layer on most occasions. I downloaded the Visio 2003 trial, and attempted to import an Autocad drawing, and the entire thing was imported as a picture, rather than individual pieces. I was interested in upgrading to the newest version of Visio, but need this ability. Is there any way to do this, or any plans to add this functionality back into Viso? Thanks

Are you asking about a way to scan images into Visio and transform them into 
drawings?  Or are you asking how to assemble a Cross Functional diagram?

To make a Cross Functional diagram, you first choose how many bands to 
create.  Then you click on the headings for the bands to change the text to 
the names you want.  Switch to the Basic Flowchart shapes in the Shapes 
Window and drag out the Process shapes to create the steps in your process.

3.generating Cross Functional Flowcharts with drawing control

Hello All,

I am developing an VB6 application using the Drawing Control. In this 
application, i want the user to be able to generate Cross Functional 
Flowcharts. I also want to use Visio to handle the functional band management 
(reordering with children). To put Visio in the correct state for doing this, 
I have to run the addon CFF. This addon displays a dialog asking for a few 
I currently use the following code to run this addon:

Private Sub RunAddon()
   Dim objAddon As Visio.Addon
   Set objAddon = visApp.Addons.Item("CFF")
   visApp.AlertResponse = 1
   objAddon.Run "/S-INIT"
   objAddon.Run "/cmd=3"
   visApp.AlertResponse = 0
End Sub

This works sometimes, but the behavior of the drawing control after this 
addon is unpredictable; 
- Sometimes it opens a new stencil with the functional band and a separator. 
- Sometimes it causes the program to freeze when clicking on a functional band
- Sometimes the functional bands changes appearance

Does anyone have experience in using this addon?

Is there another way of putting Visio in CFF mode?
