  • 1. Editing a shape with embedded text
    On Visio 2000 Technical Ed., I am trying to edit the text on the 20 pin connector on the stencil "electrical components". Instead of 1,2,3... I want them to be Y0,Y1,Y2... I can't seem to ungroup the boxes to edit their internal text. I get the message "An error (915) occurred during the action ungroup. The selected group is locked. Unlock the group and try the action again." When I go to protection for the master protection, no group is locked. When I go to the ShapeSheet, there is a 1 in group lock. Even when I change it to 0, it still does not allow me to ungroup or edit the text. -- Thanks for the help
  • 2. Can I run Visio 2003 with Office 2002?
    We have Office 2002 on the desktop and some users require an upgrade to Visio. We have no plans to upgrade to Office 2003 anytime soon. Can I install Visio 2003 with Office 2002? Are there known issues with this? Thank you.

  • 4. Attach visio html to database...can it be done ?
    Hi, I have converted a visio drawing to html and I would like to know if it is possible to dynamicaly update de properties of the shapes. The data would be insurted in a database and on regularly bases changed. So, is it possible that, if data changes in de database, that it automatically also changes in de properties of the shapes on the website ? PHP and MySql (or any other) is not an option. Thanks for the help and replies, Guy XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 5. I put a table in my footer and the document slowed down to a craw.
    In 2000 the footers and headers were dimmed and did not reload. In 2003 the footer causes the document to slow and looks to reload every time a page is scrolled over. Typing also seems to be slowed. Checked processor and memeory capacity and they are okay.
