  • 1. Can all shapes in visio be viewed at once?
    I'd like to be able to see all the shapes visio has available at once. Is there any way to do so?
  • 2. visio 2000 sr1 + xp sp 2
    I have this along with Word 2000. I just installed XP Service Pack 2. Now two things are happening: 1. When I cut and paste from Visio to Word all that gets put into the document is some text. 2. When I try to import a Visio diagram into Word I either get "not enough memory" or "application not installed properly" Has anyone experienced this or can offer their solutions? Thanks, Scott

  • 4. chemistry/physics
    I am considering buying Visio 2003 standard to replace my ageing Visio 2000. I will be wanting to use it to draw structural formulae for organic chemistry. These would then be imported into Word 2003. Are any templates avilable for this purpose? I am mainly interested in straight and cyclic aliphatic compounds. I found this not so easy to do using Visio 2000. -- Cheers and thanks Bert

I am using Visio 2003 on a network with my colleagues and wish to share our 
custom property sets. Is there a way of locating our custom property sets on 
the network instead of them being associated only with drawings.

I'm afraid not but there is perhaps a work around.

The property sets are related to a drawing and are stored in the user 
section of the drawing. So you can create all the property set you want in a 
drawing, save it as a template and put the template on your network.

Hope it can help

4.Custom Property Set / Applying

I have created an organisational chart and have sucessfully applied an 
extensive Custom Property Set to all the shapes.  However: I now find that if 
I add a new field to the set, or modify it in any way, I get two problems:
1. Applying wipe out values I have entered e.g. the number of hours worked
2. The new property doesn't appear in the properties box for the shares.

Any help would be appreicated.
Cheers and thanks
Thanks again

5.Applying custom property sets to base masters, and some funky beha

I posted this over in Visio.Developer.shapesheet, but this board seems to get 
more eyeballs and traffic so I thought I'd post it here, too. Apologies if it 
seems spammy. 

So I'm creating a bunch of masters under a base master to which I'd like to 
apply some custom properties. Following the "Step by step creating custom 
shapes" tutorial, I am mostly able to get stuff working, but there are a few 
frustrating instances of erratic behavior that I can't seem to make sense out 
of. I'm using Visio 2007.

I'm creating a new Custom Property set in the project explorer window of 
Shape Studio. Then, when I edit the shape sheet for that custom property set, 
then close it and click yes when asked if I want to update the custom 
property set. The problem begins when I try to apply the custom property set 
to a base master. It doesn't show up in the dialog box listing. My guess is 
that the shapesheet changes aren't getting committed, but I don't know why 
now and I don't know how to force them to do so.
   Any ideas?

The other weird thing is that sometimes I will open an existing custom 
properties set, and the Shape Data section in the shape sheet (which I added 
previously) will not be visible, and not editable. It is greyed out as an 
option in "Show sections". I can select it again from the "Add section" menu, 
which adds a completely new Shape Data section. Adding anything to this 
section will not be reflected when applying the behavior to base master. 
   What's going on here?

I've done a quick web search but can't find anything relevant. Any 
enlightenment is highly appreciated.
