  • 4. Where are the crow's feet?!?!
    I am trying to draw a standard entity-relationship diagram and there are NO crows feet that I can find. I find it hard to believe that Visio would not have crow's feet (optional many, mandatory one, one to many, and so on).
  • 5. Use-case diagram: square stereotype box??
    I'm trying to use Visio 2003 for UML Use-Case Diagramming. The only way that I can see actors being represented is by a stick figure picture. I prefer to show stereotyped actors as squares with <<actor>> and the name of the entity. I can figure out how to assign the stereotype in Visio, but I don't see any way to change from the stick figure to a box. I've tried Googling every possible variation on terms to find a solution, but have come up dry. Can anyone help me out? Is this possible? Tony

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?
