  • 1. Question on the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes)
    How do I modify the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes) with more than 10 rows/columns in Visio 2007 I'm trying to build a chart that is 12 columns, by 18 rows. The shape is "mis-behaving" when I try to change it. Thank you! JLH

  • 3. [Visio 2007 SP1]Transparency not handled when exporting in PNG or GIF ?
    Hi there, when I export (Save as) a Visio 2007 diagram as a PNG or GIF image, the transparent areas become white (and therefore not transparent !) on the image. The export wizard prompts me for choosing a color for the transparent areas, and I don't check the checkbox, so I would expect to stay with these transparent areas... Best regards
  • 4. Using the keyboard arrows
    I usually nudge my objects around using the keyboard arrows but for some reason Visio refuses to accept the input anymore. Using the arrows scrolls the whole page up and down, even when an object is selected. I've scoured the menus and options but cannot find anything to remedy this and it makes it almost impossible to work. Anyone have any ideas??

display of text and lines from CAD

Postby jay » Sat, 18 Oct 2008 21:54:56 GMT

In Visio 2007, I opened a .DWG,converted it, and saved is as Visio
(.VSD).
Some of the entities (both lines and text) don't display on the screen
in the formatted color.

The current theme is "none".
I tried two other themes, with no apparant difference.

Any idea why these would display (and print) as a different color than
they are formatted?

When I change the font size of the text, it does change size. When I
change color, it doesn't change.

help?

Regards
Jay

1.Line Pattern display, Line jumps and connectors

I am designing connectors for use in my companys diagrams and have found some 
"funny" differences between Visios standard Line Patterns and my own custom 
Line Patterns (tiledeformed and scaled - PatternFlag=&H41). 
An explanation would be very much appreciated.

1:
Connectors using standard line patterns will add automatic line jumps when 
crossing but connectors using custom line patterns will NOT add automatic 
line jumps - otherwise no difference between the connectors

2:
Connectors/Lines using custom line patterns always has "something visible" 
at corners and ends but connectors using standard line patterns sometimes has 
"nothing" (a gap in the pattern) at corners/ends.

In a previous post I have been told that Visio uses the GDI+ engine to 
control the display of the line patterns - hence the possibility of "nothing" 
at corners/ends. 
But why then are my custom line patterns treated differently.

My main problem of course is that I would like to have both automatic line 
jumps and "something visible" at corners/ends but don't know how to get it.

2.saving inserted CAD & Visio callouts as WMF, CAD doesn't export

I am trying to save a Visio file with an imported CAD and Visio call out 
shapes as a WMF, but the only part of the image that exports are the Visio 
call outs; the CAD image disappears. I've tried grouping all the objects, 
ungrouping & selecting all, and ungrouping & having no objects selected and 
still only the Visio call outs export.

3.Description: The CAD Entity is not supported by the Visio CAD Conv

Errors converting a DWX file into Visio 2007.  I am not sure how to AVOID 
this?  I tried to delete or UNselect the layers to make it work, I did NOT 
select to show the 3d layers and tried to delete them however it would not 
let me.
This is the log file when I try to import.  It then goes on and on and on 
trying to convert.

4.Export to CAD text problem

When I try to convert Visio 2000 Technical drawing to
CAD .dwg the fonts and text format convert improperly. I
create a text block on Visio drawing. When converted to
CAD the TABS & CARRIAGE RETURNS appear as "?" (question
marks) so my format, paragraphing , etc. is hosed and it
makes thetext very hard to interpret when viewed in
AUTOCAD. Also, the size of the font changes, gets larger.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....
