  • 1. Shape Will Not Resize!!
    Hello all, I have a UML document I created in Visio 2003. In the "UML Static Structure" stencil is a shape called, "Note". I am not able to resize this shape. After adding the shape to my dawing, I right-click, select "Format | Protection". The only checked item is "Rotation". that's fine, I don't need to rotate. So next I right-click, select "Format | Behavior". I've tried every "Resize behavior" option but none seem to allow me to resize the shape. i'm sure this must be easy... can anyone help? Thanks.
  • 2. Export Entities to Access Database
    Maybe I'm reading into the Export to Database function wrong. I created a new database model diagram. I designed the database using entities and showing their relationships. I now want to export the design into an Access database. I thought that the Export Database Wizard would do that for me, but all it is exporting is the data types in Visio. How do I get Visio 2003 to export the Entities to an Access database. I'm assuming that Visio would create new tables and define them according to the entity definitions. Is this how the Export Database Wizard is supposed to work? What am I missing?
  • 3. Visio 2002 re-opens when closed
    I am running Visio Pro 2002 on WinXP w/SP1 and when I close the application it automatically re-opens. Does anyone have any idea why it does this?
  • 4. Visio Most Recent Version
    I have spent the last hour on the web trying to find what the most recent version of Visio is. All I can find is Version 2002 and 2003. When I do Help About in Visio, it reports Visio for Enterprise Archictects SP-2 (10.05110). Nowhere in the program nor on the web can I reconcile these two version numbers. Do I have 2002 or 2003 and what is the most recent version of Visio, I hear there is a version 11 out? Thank you.

Dash line became solid line after saving as EMF format

Hi, there,
In my visio drawing, I have a dash-line rectangle. After 
saving as EMF format, the dash line has become solid line. 
How can I avoid this? Thank you very much.

1.2 superimposed dashed lines become solid

When 2 or more Connector lines with a dashed pattern are partially 
superimposed, this may make part of the combined line look solid. Is it 
possible for Visio to show the pattern of the front order line only, so that 
the pattern is always consistant?

2.Why do dashed lines appear solid when embeding?

I prepare technical illustrations and have noticed that when I embedd a Visio 
object into a Word Document and the object has a dashed or dotted line the 
line shows up as solid.  This is disconcerting and has recently caused me to 
loose 1 1/2 weeks work on illustrating, as without this information the 
sketches can not be used.

3.Dotted Lines Become Solid When Visio Added to Word Doc

I use Visio 2002 and MS Word 2002 in a Windows XP 
environment. I inserted a Visio drawing into a Word 
document and some of the dotted lines in the drawing 
became solid. I tried inserted it as an embedded Visio 
object and as an MS Picture and the problem remained. I 
also tried printing it just in case my screen view was 
not accurate; it is accurate.

Any ideas on why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks!

4.Dotted lines vs. solid lines

Why are my Visio 2003 dotted line rectangles showing up as solid lines when I copy/paste to Word 2002? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
