  • 2. About editing the "alignment vector of a matching connection point
    I have a hard time making two figures connect to each other the way I want them. This is mainly because of the so called "alignment vector of a matching connection point". As you all know, each connection point is assigned an alignment vector, useful for repositioning of the shape when another shape is attached (connected) to it, or for the proper direction of the connector when "plugged" into the connection point of a shape. The coordinates of this alignment vectors can be edited in the ShapeSheet in "DirX / A", "DirY / B" cells under Connection Points section. My question is what is the meaning of these coordinates, and what is the easiest way (preferably visually) to edit the direction of this alignment vector? I remember reading something about this in the help files somewhere, but cannot find it anymore. Thanks

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!
