I had this question after viewing Replacing text in PowerPoint 2016 using VBA.

Is it possible that I can insert a custom textbox in slide theme and it gets updated in actual slides ?
Here what I am trying to do in power point VBA which I have done successfully in Visio VBA.

I want to put the presentation file name on all slides of a presentation.  I have 50+ such presentations containing 25+ slides in each presentation.  The above code requires that I insert a text box on each of the slide manually and then it works if I run the macro.  Any suggestion how to automate the process using Powerpoint VBA ?

I do not want to change the slides theme for each presentation by inserting a text box with file name.  That would defeat the purpose of automation. Visio VBA does it very easily by using code in Auotexec module for each slidepack.

I had this question after viewing Visio 2013 - Undo has stopped working!.

I have followed the example shown in this link:

http://www.visguy.com/2015/07/07/deleting-visio-shapes-programmatically/

I have the same code structure as in the example, and when the code runs successfully, I was expecting to see afterwards the "Undo" button enabled in Visio, showing me the Undo Scope name that I set, but button appears dissabled.

What I am missing?

I have rich text in MS Visio shapes, that I wish to display, fully formatted, in Excel cells, through vba automation.
When I copy-paste the visio shape.text directly into an Excel cell, all formatting is lost, even bold, underline and superscript etc.
However, if I first copy the visio.shp.text into WORD, then, when I copy the text from WORD to Excel, the original 'visio' formating is preserved in both WORD and in EXCEL.
In this additional step, WordPAD is ineffective as a substitute for WORD (ie formatted text copied from WordPAD does not preserve formatting when the text is copied to Excel.)

I seek an automated solution (vba).
But an automated solution that takes Text from visio via WORD and through to Excel seems cumbersome. Is there an automated solution, and can I avoid the WORD step?

LATERALLY - I can convert visio.shape.text into an HTML string...  
Can you tell me how I could display that HTML string (derived from Visio) as RICH TEXT in Excel?

Thanks!

Tying to install Office 2019 Applications through SCCM using latest features Click to Run. I was able to do a fresh install of Office 365 with Visio and Project on my test machine. Following on that test machine, I un-installed the Visio and Project and then installed visio 2016 manually. so as a test run I am trying to only upgrade visio2016 to visio219 using the same Click to run configuration but when I choose do not uninstall anything and then try to install the visio2019, click to run complaints that "Can't install, to install this first uninstall the following product(s) and try again"

I am wondering why?

I am trying to deploy Visio 64 bit silently using SCCM.  I've done the following so far:

- ran "Setup.exe /admin" and made selections needed for silent such as agreeing to the license etc.
- Created the Application, Deployment Type and Deployment.
- Created an install batch file that runs this command:  "msiexec.exe /quiet %~dp0\Visio_2013_64bit.MSP /qn".

The install will not run and when I ran the command locally to test I received an error message - basically my msiexec command is wrong and it's not even making it to the install.

I've seen the command used to install with an MSP but it had the original install msi within the command along with the .msp.  I was going to try that burt I can't figure out which MSI to use in this version of visio....or do I use the Office MSI?

Anyone have experience using an MSP for install?

I did draw a network digram using a link to draw Visio diagram of vsphere using Powershell. It looks ok on the screen , but it was so small when i printed the drawing, the drawing only fit into 3X3  inches area instead of fitting into A4 paper. I tried to follow the link below, but all the drawing are going outside the grid area(- 4 "ruler area).

I am doing a bpmn model in visio.  
I put in a start event shape in my document and this shape automatically populates text underneath the shape when i type on it.
I then put a Task Shape in my document and it is forcing me to type into the guts of the shape.

I want to dictate whether or not the text goes beneath the shape or in the shape as i construct this diagram.

How can i adjust the shape highlighted in yellow so that the text is under the shape.  
i dont want to add an extra text box underneath the shape.
