Visio Shapes and Fields
Posted on 2004-10-19
I am trying to use visio(2002-sp2) to map out and inventory a lab with 30 computers. The computers have the new style flat panel monitors and there is not a shape in visio that matches the monitor. I have been trying to modify the PC shape to reflect the actual shape of the pc. I copy the master and then try to edit the master to the new shape. In order to do that I have to UNGROUP the master to change the shape of the monitor. When I UNGROUP it loses its properties of when you double click the shape. Before, it places the cursor to the side to enter text. A name or label if you will can be added to the normal shape. When I try to regroup and get my new shape to behave the same... I can not. A double click on my new shape only brings up a cursor directly over the shape and any text entered is unreadable by being over the shape. I have tried every setting and still can not get this work.
