  • 3. Maximum number of gluepoints for UML Object Lifelines
    Is there a maximum number of gluepoints for UML Object Lifeline objetcts in a UML Sequence Diagram? I can extend the lifeline as long as needed, but the gluepoints on the line seem to stop at around 80. Is that the max limit?
  • 4. Cable plug ends and connectors
    I recently purchased Visio 2003 Professional and am very displeased that it is missing shapes for the various plugs and connectors for everyday typical devices, especially computer devices. I was hoping to find shapes showing the plug end view with the pin outs and maybe side or angled profile views for; USB, Firewire, S-Video, VIVO, Composite, RCA, RJ11, RJ45, Parallel Port, Coaxial, maybe foreign plugs/jacks/wall outlets, etc... I know there are millions of connectors out there and Visio can't include them all, but I feel this is a little hole that shouldn't exist for the common connectors mentioned, especially for computer-based plugs/connectors, being that the product includes shapes already, to tie these connectors directly in to.

  • 5. Symbol Font incompatibility between Visio 2003 and Word 2003
    When I create a drawing in Visio 2003 that is then inserted into a Word 2003 document (as an object), text that is in the Symbol font in Visio does not appear correctly in Word. For example, if I type the uppercase greek omega on my Visio drawing (uppercase W in the symbol font), it correctly appears as an omega in Visio. But after exiting Visio (File/Exit and Return to xxxxx.doc) and returning to the Word document, the omega appears as either an empty box or as a different symbol. If I print the Word document, the omega is printed as a capital W. This feature used to work fine with Office XP and Visio 2000. I recently upgraded to both Office 2003 and Visio 2003. If I open a document in Word 2003 that was created by Office XP and contains a Visio 2000 drawing, the greek symbols display and print correctly. Any ideas? This is a huge problem for me; most of my Visio drawings are electronic circuit diagrams containing lots of greek letters and symbols. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
