  • 1. How to easily increase font size (an of entire process map...?
    Hi, I have put together a process map with many activities/decision points, triggers etc. Having finished the process map, I have noticed that the font size has defaulted to size 8- so it's difficult to read when printed. If I select all and increase the font size, the text on many of the activities/decision points comes out of the associated boxes and looks scruffy. Does anyone know of an easy way to increase the font size whilst also increasing the associated shape so that it fits the new text...? Any help gratefully appreciated!
  • 2. Meaning of Referential Integrity ("on parent update") Notation
    When I create an ER diagram in Visio, and I have created a relationship, I can select the "Referential Action" property under "Categories" and set it to one of the following: On parent update OR On parent delete No Action Cascade Set NULL Set default Don not enforce The notation displayed on the diagram is u:R d:R if I have "No action" selected. What does the "R" stand for?
  • 3. Link/Export Connections to DataSource
    Hello, Is it possible to link Visio connections to my datasource? I.e. draw a connection in Visio and export/link that relation to my datasource? Use Case: I have a datasource listing the servers in my organization. I'd like to link which servers each application / process are dependent upon. That way I can visually see what servers an app/process relies on AND query my datasource to determine what app/processes are affected by a server outage. Thanks

  • 5. how to unprotect a shape
    I have a visio file copied from another computer. When I try to edit the file, the whole file is just like a graphic, nothing can be edited or selected. I can add some shape, after that, if I select format-protection, and then select all and click ok, the new added shape is not editable like the original shapes. I tried go to format, the protection selection is grayed up. I click show shapesheet. there is no protection parts available. I also checked the layers. The lock setting is 0. Anything I can do to un-protect it? Regards, David -- Working Hard
