  • 2. Referencing Page Names in a Custom Properties Dialog Box
    Hi, I created a report based on the elements of a page in a Visio document. However, I would like to be able to run this report in an empty page of the same document and reference the page name that this report should be based on. The reason for this being that some pages might be too long to fit a report as well as the contents. Also, I would like to avoid using any other application like Excel for exporting information. The way I tried to do this was by customizing the properties of the report object so that on drop it will ask what page to make reference to. My idea was to provide the name of all pages within the same document in a fixed list for easier selection. Then, on selecting a given page name, have the report reference that page and run the query it is supposed to run. However, I can't figure out how to pass the PAGENAME argument (if that is the one I should actually be using) to the report object. Basically, I have been unable to populate a fixed list with the names of all pages in the Visio document. If anyone knows the solution to this issue or have any ideas on how to make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So, the 0.6 is just some text that you want to add?  Draw your line, add the 
arrowhead, and with the line still selected, type your text.  To change the 
properties of the text, go to menu bar > Format > Text.  If you want to 
re-position the text, click the little down arrow next to the Text icon, and 
select Text Bow.  The text box will show the little squares to resize the box 
and thus move the text.  If you draw a connector, the text box will have a 
yellow diamond control handle to move the text.

By default, Visio will set the text background colour to solid. You can 
control this setting by selecting the shape and choosing Text... from the 
Format menu and then selecting the Text Block tab. You can then choose a 
more appropriate background colour or adjust the effect by changing the 
transparency.

Word, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint have MSOshapes that are similar to the 
basic shapes in Visio and they also support connected lines. In Word, look 
at Shapes from the insert Tab.

There is no official way of converting MSOShapes to Visio drawings or vice 
versa. I do have a set of tools that will let me convert MSO shapes into 
Visio drawings, but they are not ready for prime time.

I don't believe Word has any drawing capabilities of its own.  You might 
check over on the Word forum.  The other MS drawing packages kind of pale in 
comparison to Visio's capabilities, but it isn't cheap.

2.How to create a simple line with text shown inside the line in the middle ?

I am using Visio 2003 and need to draw a basic line (with an arrow at
the end) pointing the direction of the line but need to place the text
inside the middle of the line ? Something like this though the line is
continuous and not dotted. Also the 0.6 has to be clearly visible if
the document is printed out. Thanks

4.Visio text in diagram shows lines when printed

When copying a VISIO diagram into Word, the diagram looks fine but once it is 
printed it shows a line coming down from the first letter of each word in the 
diagram.  When copying into PowerPoint and printing everything works fine.  
Any recommendations of how this could be fixed would be great appreciated.

Thanks!

5.dimension lines: why does changing the text size change line lengt

I recently moved to Visio 2003 and have been using the new stencils in it. I 
added some "controller dimensions" from the office layout group (walls, doors 
and windows, US) to a drawing. They are not "connected" to anything because 
they are measuring parts of complex and grouped shapes.

I changed the size of the font on the dimension lines and found that the 
length of the lines would change. I've never seen a dimension line do that in 
any earlier version.

What on earth is going on? How do I make that behavior stop?
