  • 1. how to specify a shape size with visio 2003
    Does anyone know how can I specify (enter manually) the size of a generic shape, such as a rectangel ? In know that in previous version of visio I could select a shape in my drawing and then double-click the status-line, where the shape size is. It doesn't work in my visio 2003 & could not find how to enable this option, if possible. thanks.
  • 2. Import / Export Packages
    I'm working on a UML diagram of the cases to be used in my new C# project using Visio Enterprise Architects. In one of my classes I want to pass in a listview control, so I created a new "Package" to hold .Net Control datatypes. My questions: A) Is there any way to export and import this package so I can share with the other programmers on my team? B) Does a package already exist somewhere on the net that has all these WinForm controls (and for that matter a lot of the .Net framework) already in them so I don't have to reinvent the wheel? Searches of Google and MSDN so far have proved fruitless. Thanks, Robert
  • 3. postscript files
    Visio 2000 is supposed to be able to open postscript files, but every time I try it (with various ps files) I get Error 918. Has anybody had success? Similarly with Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files, and eps files.
  • 4. Decreased performance of Visio 2003 ActiveX Control
    Does anybody know if Microsoft is going to fix the Visio 2003 ActiveX Control so that its performance won't decrease when using shapes with gradient patterns, complex fill patterns or transparency ? This issue is crucial for us - if there is no solution in the nearest future, our firm will have to just quit using Visio and look for an alternative environment.

Export to CAD text problem

Postby Bob Carswell » Sat, 24 Jan 2004 21:39:09 GMT

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....

Text conversion is rarely 100%.  Same with dimensions.  Visio and AutoCAD
handle these entities very differently from each other.  I doubt there's
much you can do about your situation; I have experienced similar results and
never found a resolution.  Sorry.

Export to CAD text problem

Postby lancel » Thu, 05 Feb 2004 23:10:40 GMT

I have problems with files imported from FastCAD which 
have been saved in .dwg format.  Haven't had much luck 
with importing from other programs either.  My experience 
is that importing is hit and miss.....may work, may not.

1.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.

4.Problem viewing CAD

When I try to import some dwg files nothing happens. I feel it may be 
something to do with the version of either the CAD file or Visio. I am using 
Visio 2002 Proffesional SP2

I do the following:

Open up a new visio file.
Select Insert
then from drop down menu select CAD Drawing..
browse to folder and file and select the dwg file.

Some files open others will not. Is there anything I can do. Thanks

5.Visio 2007: Problem importing CAD Drawing

I'm trying to import a DWG file into Visio that was produced by Punch 
Software's AS4000 program.  The file is viewable by Brava's free DWG viewer 
program.

When I insert the file into Visio 2007, the result is a tiny "blob" in the 
SW corner of the page.  If I double-click on this blob, Visio brings up the 
CAD drawing properties page.

There are no error messages issued by Visio, and nothing in the event log 
either.

Please help.
