Sometime back I found what I call a measurement device.  It told me how far 
it is between two shapes.  It has been long enough back that I forgot where 
to find it.  Could someone help me??
Thanks

Thanks for an easy question I can answer to.

Visio 2003.
Menu, File, Shapes, Visio Extras, Drawing Tool Shapes.

More elaborate answer :
Of course you could have searched for the shape "measure".  But you may 
encounter problems in this.  
Many beginners would search in the Visio Help system, and not in the Shapes 
window, Search for Shapes box.  It would be great if I could give you 
unambiguous instructions like : menu, Tools, Search for Shapes.
Secondly, when you have found the the shapes, you don't know in which 
stencil to find them.  There is a little known, well hidden feature : menu, 
Tools, Options, Tab "Shape Search",  Section "Results", check "By Group".
This will give you the name of the stencil in the results pane. Even without 
the name of the folder the stencil is in, the stencil will be easy to find, 
as they are sorted alphabetically.

Here it is allready tonight, and at home I have Visio 2007.
It does not make any difference between versions 2003 and 2007.
Maybe some files have been deleted ?

Yes night does come quickly.   I don't know that any file were deleted.  Are 
you saying to unistall and reinstall Visio again?

i did the Diagmostics test and it repaired one problem for me.  I also 
searched the Shapes and found a measureing device that will work for me but 
it is in "inches".  Anyone know how to change it to "feet and inches"??
Thanks

I don't know in which folder the stencil files reside.
Normally there should be 31 shapes in the concerned stencil (metric).
The imperial shapes are in another stencil.
Your interest is in :
- measure tool
- horizontal measure
- vertical measure

This drawing tool stencil is too little known, as it is under "Advanced", 
and many people are frightened by that word.

By the way, monday morning is service temporaril unavailable day at Microsoft.

Are you using Visio Standard or Professional?
Those shapes are only in Professional.

There is also a similar shape in the Walls, Doors and Windows stencil
available in Standard (in the Building Plan stencils section).

1.Doing snypshots, saving and loading images without Vision

Hi!

I am trying to display, save and load images for a few time now, but
doing this without IMAQ Vision it seems to be very hard.
I was told to download IMAQ 2.6 and look at the exaples, but there is
only one example working well. When I open the others
LabView doesn't find all components (e.g. IMAQ WindDraw.fi, IMAQ
WindSize,...). In one example there is an image control,
but somehow I can't find it in the controls.
So I coul use intensity graph. This works. But then there is the
problem of saving and loading images. I can use IMAQ WriteFile,
but where is IMAQ ReadFile. I don't find it.
I could do IMAQ ImageToArray and save the array, but where is IMAQ
ArrayToImage to show the image again???

Lots of questions and I hope anyone out there can answer at least one
of them.

Oh: I am using LabView 6.1 and IMAQ PCI-1411

Thanks

5.What am I doing wrong here ?

Hi all,
I'm hoping someone can help me out with a bit of VBA in Visio.

It looks ok, but I'm getting a type mismatch error :(
(It's just a simple bit of code I'm using to figure out how to do something)

Public Sub callDummy()
	Dim shp As Visio.Shape
	Set shp = Visio.ActiveWindow.Selection.Item(1)
	Dummy (shp)	' <-- Get Type Mismatch here on compile :(
End Sub

Public Sub Dummy(shp As Visio.Shape)
	If (shp.Master Is Nothing) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Nothing")
	ElseIf (IsEmpty(shp.Master)) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Empty")
	ElseIf (IsNull(shp.Master)) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Null")
	Else
		MsgBox ("Bingo!")
	End If
End Sub
