  • 1. Merge diagrams from separate pages onto one page
    I would like to be able to use the 'page' tabs feature of visio to keep diagrams structured in manageable sub-process chunks. However, there are times when I would like to merge all of the separate sub-processes onto one page that is printable on large format paper (11*17 up to poster size) for ease of reference across sub-processes in review meetings. What is the best way to do this? I would very much like another option beyond copying and pasting each sub-process diagram onto a new page and creating a complete new piece of content. This seems like such a duplication of effort. Thanks! -- JF

  • 4. Combining /Merging UML Models
    Is it possible to merge or combine UML models from two (or more) different Visio files into one. Ideally, I'd like to be able to create a sequence diagram which references many models. Also, the models I have so far, have been reverse engineered from Visual Studio.

Visio out of the box does not have the ability to curve text. As Al
suggested you can use Smart Art which is part of Office 2007 to create such
text. The text can then be inserted into a Visio drawing.

1.Custom Line End Line Ends rotation on arc

I created a custom line end after being frustrated that there was no
way to "fill" an arrowhead on an existing line end easily.

It works fine on straight lines, however on arcs it is slightly tilted
and doesn't align nicely like it does with the existing ends.

I set my pin to the arrowhead point (my line end, simply an arrowhead
pointing to the right with a filled head) and it still doesn't work
right on arcs.

2.Making the dynamic connector line style appear as double lines

3.Making a desk, not covered in stencil, merging two boxes and a curved line

All,

Newbie here.  I am making an office layour to allow me to visualise
desk layout and network / power / telephone point in Visio 2007.

The desks we have don't seem to be covered by the visio shapes and I
can't seem to make a shape. So I am either looking in the worng place
for the shape or doing something wrong.

The desks are corner desks, but with uneven return, so take a box 1.6m
x .8m.  Add a return at one end of 0.6m x .4m.  So this gives you an L
shape, then on the internal angle, soften with a curve.  So now you
have an L shape where the internal corner of the L is a curve, not an
angle, but the bottom of the L is narrower than the vertical.

I tried with the "corner surface", but the ends are the same depth, so
you can't have the shape I need, it is always symtrical.

I tried with two boxes and a curved line and then Shape Opertions
Combine / Union, but eventhrough my curve intersected with two lines,
it just dissappears when I merge the objects into one.

I was doing really well as well, last time I tried, I gave up before I
had finished the walls!  This time got walls, doors etc.

Thanks in advance, any help appeciated.

4.I am trying to create text around the circumference of circles/arc

Hi, 

I have been trying to arc text in concentric circles in Visio, tried 
PowerPoint prior and have not been successful.  Does anyone have a clue or 
can you advise where I might be able to get a tool or clip type art to 
utilize?

Thanks,
Mark

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?
