  • 1. How do I use other shapes than boxes in an Org. chart?
    I created an org chart with boxes in Visio. I'd like to use ovals and other shapes to more accurately reflect the various levels of employees, etc. However, when I change the shape I can no longer hide/expand the subordinates. How can I change the shapes and still maintain the ability to hide/expand subordinates?

    Visio 2003 Prof 1. Hyperlinks in SAW to VML (no IFRAME) work OK. 2. Hyperlinks in SAW to VML (with IFRAME) do not work OK (blank IFRAME) 3. Hyperlinks in SAW to SVG (no IFRAME) work OK. 4. Hyperlinks in SAW to SVG (with IFRAME) work OK. (Hyerlinks are to other pages within the same document): Above seems to point to the JavaScript functions in the VML format option do not correctly form their hyperlinks when they are within an IFRAME. Has anyone fixed this? Are MS going to fix this?

    After I copied some shapes from another sheet, I'm now having problems moving some shapes around. It's like they are attached with an invisible thread to some spot and just won't move beyond a short distance. I've rebooted etc. Any suggestions why this is happening?

You can use the SaveToFile Method of the UIObject . Look at the Visio Sdk 
help, there are some vba code that can help

I found this reference: When you create a custom toolbar or modify an 
existing toolbar, the changes are stored in the Microsoft Visio Custom 
Toolbars file (Custom.vsu).

Simply copy the file to your new machine in the proper directory.

I did not find any .vsu file.  Instead there is a .pip file wchich is 
supposed to store customized toolbars.
I tried to copy to the "user/ppdata/local/office/visio" folder in my new 
vista machine.
But it has no effect.

When you use the savetofile method Visio creates a .vsu file.

I remenber, it was possible to create this file directly from Visio IHM in 
version earlier than 2002. Unfortunately it is not available with newer

1.Adding a new toolbar displays the "no document" toolbar


I want to add a new toolbar in my visio when I create a new document. It 
works, but the "no document" toolbar is always displayed when I add my new 
toolbar. I use Visio 2002. I send you the c# code I writed:

		private void CreateProcessToolbar(Visio.Document doc) {
			Visio.UIObject UIObj;
			Visio.ToolbarSet toolbarSetObj;
			Visio.Toolbar toolbarObj;
			Visio.ToolbarItems toolbarItemsObj;
			Visio.ToolbarItem toolbarItemObj;
      // get build in toolbars
			UIObj = VisioApplication.Instance.get_BuiltInToolbars(0);
			toolbarSetObj = 

			//add a new toolbar
			toolbarObj = toolbarSetObj.Toolbars.Add();
			toolbarObj.Caption = 
			toolbarObj.Position = (int)Visio.VisUIBarPosition.visBarMenu;

2.Visio's not remembering toolbar customizations, or new toolbars.

Hello. I saw a similar post from today about Visio not remembering 
custom-made toolbars. I'm having the same problem, but it goes beyond that: 
Visio's not remembering customizations I make to the existing toolbars, such 
as if I add different zoom levels.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I'm using Visio 2003 SR2.

I tried to do this as I often do in word, but is does not work...

Please help

4.V2K3 Setting Toolbar via code hoses Zoom command

I have a peculiar problem that showed up in our addon beginning with Visio 
2003. Any help would be apprecated. In short, as soon as our VB6 addon 
manipulates the Standard toolbar using the UI Object, the Zoom command 
disappears from the toolbar.

Further testing shows that if I loop through all the toolbar items on the 
Standard toolbar, the Zoom command doesn't even show up. For example, the 
code below simply gets the Standard toolbar, then loops through all the 
buttons and does a debug.print of the caption for each button:

Set uiObj = gVisApp.BuiltInToolbars(0)
For intCount = 0 To tbrSetDrawing.Toolbars.Count - 1
  Set tbrStandard = tbrSetDrawing.Toolbars.Item(intCount)
  If tbrStandard.Caption = "Standard" Then
     Debug.Print tbrStandard.Caption
     For intX = 0 To tbrStandard.ToolbarItems.Count - 1
       Set tbrItem = tbrStandard.ToolbarItems.Item(intX)
       Debug.Print tbrItem.Caption
     Next intX
     Set tbrItem = Nothing
  End If
  Set tbrStandard = Nothing
Next intCount

The output from this in the debug window is:
Microsoft Office Visio Help
Print Page
Print Preview
Format Painter
Pointer Tool
Connector Tool
Text Tool
Drawing Tools

The Zoom command should come after the Drawing Tools, but doesn't. Not to 
mention the Microsoft Office Visio Help appears between the Open and Save 
commands, yet in Visio, it actually appears at the end of the toolbar.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? This works perfectly in Vision 
2000 and 2002.

Thanks so much.

5.How to change export settings from Visio VBA?

We need to export Visio drawings in BMP and TIF formats with specific
settings, for example, a specific size of the BMP in pixels. But making
Visio 2003 record a macro does not show any solution: It is nothing but a
call to the Export method, and when running it anew, the result is not

Is there any way to do the selections from VBA that the user can do manually
from the SaveAs dialog?

Kind regards
