  • 1. Multiple Visio Print Pages Into One Visible Section?
    I have a flowchart that prints six employment groups and I want to see them on one view and then print all six later on. Is there a way to see them all on one view?
  • 2. Why do my diagram objects stretch horizontally and range right?
    All, I have saved two Visio drawings. On re-opening each file the objects (connectors and process boxes) stretch horizontally across the page and range way over to the right, way off the printed page footprint. When I say stretch horizontally, I mean the object height says as required but it's width is increased by about 3000% of the original. In other words a standard process box is lengthened to about two page widths and it flies over to the right by about 3-15 page lengths depending on the object's relative position on the A4 sheet. This is really annoying as to re-position and re-size takes longer than starting from stratch plus I shoudn't have to do this every time a open up the file! FYI...I'm using swimlanes (Functional Bands) which remain unaffacted Any solutions greatly received...this is driving me nuts!!! BB
  • 3. Visio handling of events
    Hi, I know this is a real novice question, but could anybody tell me how t run a piece of code based on a Visio event. I'm playing around with th following code :- Private Sub Command1_ShapeAdded() Dim shp As Visio.Shape Dim S As String Set shp = Visio.ActiveWindow.Selection.Item(1) S = "Shape Name = " & shp.Name S = S & Chr(13) S = S & "Shape Area = " & shp.AreaIU & " Square Inches." MsgBox S End Sub As long as I add a shape to a visio document I can run this code fro within the VB editor and get the results that I want. However eithe I'm missing the point or missing a step, but I want this code to ru from within the Visio document simply when a shape is added (I don' want to have to run it from the VB editor or have to select a Macro t run). Just to push my luck, if anyone knows the answer to the above woul they be able to indicate with the above example how to make the cod run based on the Click event so that if I have one shape on the activ document and then click on it the message box is then presented. Any help would be appreciated
