visio - how to use favorites and masters to update existing drawings?
Posted on 2013-11-30
Is there a way in visio to do this?
I have a title block / page border that is in my favorites.
Sometimes I make changes to it and then going forward, when I open a previously made page, I have to remember to delete the old title block and copy the new updated title block from favorites. And have to wonder if I already did that. A nuisance.
So they call things in favorites 'masters'. How does that work? If I have the same object dragged from favorites into the document, if I make a change to the master in Favorites, is it supposed to push it to the instances on the page? I don't see that. And then when I open a different drawing with that old version of the object, is it supposed to look at favorites, say 'oh! that's a newer version of this item' and update it in the drawing? I am not seeing it do that.
