Visio 2003 Custom Properties Question
Posted on 2006-07-01
Way back in Visio 2000 days I created a Stencil with Shapes that had custom properties. I haven't had to use these for years, but now a project has come up and I need to use them again with the excepton that now I need to add new properties. Currently, we are using Visio 2003 and I can't for the life of me remember how to get a property to update text on the shape based on a link to the property field. I've got 3 previously linked text fields, copied one of them twice to create two more, but I can't figure out or reverse engineer the existing links to get the new ones linked properly. I vaugely remember the original process I used, but I think I had to manually edit the Shape Sheet.
I have a User-defined Cells Section with User.param, User.Row_2 through 4 with a Value in User.Row_4 of Sheet.5!Prop.param04
I don't remember how to duplicate this for the new item and create a link to the custom property.
Any help would certainly be appreciated.
