  • 1. Looking to change the default font setting in Visio permanently
    I am trying to change the default font setting in Visio 2003. I would like it to stay once I change it. I know how to change the font for the document. I am looking for a permanent change.
  • 2. okay, am I missing something with the AutoCAD/Visio interaction?
    Hi y'all, I draw landscaping and pool plans with Visio and the issue I'm having is a suspicion that I'm not doing things in the most efficient way with respect to inserting AutoCAD drawings. I typically get a civil engineer's grading plan emailed to me as a .dwf file, then in Visio I go to Insert > AutoCAD drawing..., then find the .dwf and insert it basically in the same manner as one might insert a photo or a .pdf file. Then, I begin the laborious process of tracing over the entire AutoCAD drawing onto my Visio page...dragging, dropping, resizing every single piece of the house, property lines, contour lines, and everything else I need. So my question is...can Visio just convert the AutoCAD walls into Visio walls, the AutoCAD property line into Visio property lines, etc. without me having to physically trace everything myself?
  • 3. Basic Question
    I currently have Visio Pro 2003. Do I have to uninstall it to install the 2007 version or will it install on top of the old version? I don't want to end up with two versions on my machine.

1.Preserve format of data in Excel when doing a mail merge

I am using Office 2007 and am trying to do a mail merge using data from an 
Excel spreadsheet. I have a 'Salary' field in Excel with the data formatted 
in the  currency style e.g. 30,000.00 but when I merge the data, I lose the 
formatting. How can I keep the formatting in the same way as it is displayed 
in Excel?
Thanks, Lou

2.Office 2003 Mail merge not preserving currency format

Just upgraded to Office 2003 and have a number of letters that merge data 
extracted from an Access database, which includes fields with currency and 
dates. In Office 2000 these functions all worked but in Office 2003 the dates 
seem ok but the currency just comes over as a plain number eg entry in 
database 175 displayed in database as 175.00 but in the word doc is just 
plain 175 where as in 2000 it appeared as 175.00. The fields in the database 
are set as currency. Any ideas on how to overcome this and why it happens?
Many Thanks

3.Shape size not preserved during copy and paste

Dear Gurus:

Between two pages with different drawing scales, it used to be that (for 
example) a one inch circle could be copied from one page and pasted onto 
the other and still be one inch according to the rulers of the two 
pages.  Now it seems that the size of the pasted version is no longer 
preserved according to drawing rulers, rather seems kept constant 
relative to the printer page size.  Is there an option I can set to get 
the original behavior?

To complicate the puzzle, some stencil masters now exhibit the same 
problem, while others seem to observe the drawing scale just fine.  ???

4.Preserving a letter from Word 2003 when pasting into Frontpage 2002


I have used Abbyy fineReader 8.0 to scan a letter the scan was output
inot a Word 2003 document.  Apart from a few errors the page is
identical to the original when I open Word.

I now want to paste the letter into Frontpage.  But despite my best
efforts Frontpage does not keep the layout of the letter which had been
pasted into a table set to 90% it does include the letter heading

Also which adds to my problem with trying to get a copy of the letter
into my webpage the table has resized itself so that it is much wider
than the setting for the table as if its accommodating a large graphic
