  • 3. Buttons to hide/show layers
    I have a Visio chart showing process flows for updating hardware and software systems. Each of these is on a different layer with some overlapping shapes. I want a few buttons across the top of the page which will hide or show a layer, rather than having to go to the menu - View, Layer Properties and then select/deselect the layer. Thanks! Chris

I received a Visio Chart from someone else outside of my office that I need 
to revise. I have used Visio, but am NOT a proficient user (I know enough to 
draw shapes, add text, and lines, but that's about it).

There is a horizontal line in the middle of the square or rectangle shape 
which stays in the middle of the shape (squares/rectangles). The line does 
not go all the way across the shape (it leaves "blank" space at each end).

I use Visio 2003, but I do not know what version was used to create this 
particular document. It was based on a .vst file. I believe there are macros 
in the document, but am uncertain what they.

I tried to right click the shape, and choose Hide Divider Line, but that 
doesn't seem to have any effect.

Does anyone know what this could be?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you right-click on the shape and select Format / Special, what does it 
say the "Master" is?

Also, if you select File / Properties / General tab, what is the "Based on" 

Best regards

Sounds like one of the Visio Orgchart shapes.
To start with, what version of Visio are you using and is there an Orchart

1.Divider Line in Shape in Org Chart

Dear Folks:

I have made an org chat where I separate the job title from the employee 
name with a "divider line."

In the help menu I can find instructions on how to make that line dissappear 
and reappear by right clicking on the shape and accessing a menu.  I found no 
information on how to position or reposition that divider line.

My problem is that the title often takes two lines of text while the name 
invariably takes one.  As a result  the divider line appears in between the 
two lines of job title instead of separating the job title from the 
individual who fills it.

How do I fix this?


2.How do I remove the Divider Line?

I am creating an org charge with just company names.  Therefore, I do not 
need to add in a title.  How do I remove the divider line so that it will 
center in the box better.

3.Divider Line

Dear Folks:

None of the support Documents tell me how to reposition the divider line 
inside an Org. Chart shape.  

I'm editing an existing org chart.

If the title is longer than one line the divider line should move down to 
accomodate it.  In some boxes it does, in others it incorrectly puts the 
divider line after the first line of text.

Is there a way to specify where the divider line should fall?


4.Organization Chart - Divider lines

Hi everybody,
I have a question about that divider line in the organization chart shapes. 
When the first property in the shape doesn't fit in one single line, the 
divider won't appear between the first and second property, but between the 
first and second line. That is cutting many employees' position in two 
The only solution I found was to make the first property fit into one line. 
Alas, I am automatizing the organization chart creation and having this 
programmatically is fairly uneasy. Isn't there other way of solving this 

Thank you for taking the time to answer me.

5.Moving a Divider line

I am using Visio 2003 to create an org chart. I would like to move the 
divider line to be after the second line of text (before the third). I can't 
find any information for how to do so. Please advise.
