Have uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2016 and Visio 2016 (both msi version).
Still have a problem.
When starting Visio, I get a message box saying that Visio couldn't start last time and prompts to run in Safe mode.
This happened after reinstalling everything on the first attempt to run Visio.
Attached screen shots show the sequence.
This happens every time I try to run Visio. Other Office apps run OK.

Ran CCleaner
Ran Malware Bytes
Ran antivirus

Suggestions?

Thank you.

Is there a stencil with the voice and data jack? Usually it's a triangle and half is black and the other half white/no fill. I can leave it all white or fill it all black but I can't seem to have it half and half. I've searched the internet and can't find one.

Thank you in advance - EE

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I have a date field that will go on multiple pages of a drawing and anytime the drawing is modified I need to update the date field. I would like to only have to do this on the first page and then have the other pages updated automatically. My first page is named A and the shape on page A that contains the date is named sheet.111. On the 2nd page which is name B, I have added a rectangle and selected insert field, then custom formula. For the custom formula I am using =SHAPETEXT(Pages[A]!Sheet.111!TheText) but when I press OK it tells me there is an error in the formula. Looking in 2 different help forums this custom formula has worked but form some reason I cannot get it to work. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

I used to use the Connector Line function in Visio a lot because I do a lot of wiring diagrams in Visio and before I upgraded to the 2013 version the Connector Line feature worked pretty good. It was still very frustrating at times cause it tends to have a mind of its own but now it's just a mess. It is impossible to get the connector line feature to work at all and if I have to edit one that has been drawn on a previous job again it is impossible because it wants to automatically go to the largest block on the page. I used to like the feature because it was a quick way of drawing lines and then had the line jump feature built into it. Now it doesn't work and I can't figure out how to put it back to the way it used to be.

Is there a way to edit the parameters of the Connector Feature. The help function in Visio doesn't even know what I'm asking.
Is there a way to get line jumps without using the connector line feature?

Attached Picture Description:
The first picture shows an existing drawing that I made when Connector Lines worked. Please note the green dot on the red line in the middle of the picture. I tried to move it down one grid line. The second picture shows what it automatically does and then will not let me move it. What am I doing wrong. This was not an issue in previous versions of Visio.

Hello

I would like to draw a Visio of a platform that I run.

But - more importantly - if someone clicks a server, what I'd like to be able to do is bring up details such as server name, data center and so forth. Is this possible?

I have Visio installed on a server (Windows 2016) where it runs as expected locally. However when I try to run it from a computer on the network through a mapped drive, it crashes before it opens. I have verified that all of the shares along the way are good. I can navigate to the target .exe file without any prompts or errors, but when trying to launch, that's when it crashes.

My path is this \\servernamehere\C$\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\VISIO.exe

I have tried it with a user name in the place of C$ and the result is the same. What am I doing wrong?

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V
LVL 1
Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Is it possible in Visio to link blocks of data in Visio so that if I fill a field of information in one page it is automatically filled in another page located on a different tab in the workbook? This would be similar to what you can do in excel. Right now I am typing in the information on my main page and then duplicating the exact same information on two other pages. This is not very efficient.

Hello experts,

For years when Visio was used there was over on the left under the Clipboard group a Shapes dialogue box that allowed one to open groups of Shapes and search for Shapes.

Now no longer is the Shapes box not there it cannot be found anywhere in the application. The only thing that I can think of that I did to change the application was open a dialogue called Drawing Explorer.

How do I get the Shapes and Stencils dialogue box back?

Thanks.

When working with Microsoft Visio, if you click on an image/object then press  Ctrl C  to copy it then press Ctrl V to paste it, it has a tendency of pasting the copied image towards the bottom right corner of the original copied image - This is Annoying!

1) Is there a way to change the direction of the copied image/object in relation to the original image/object?
2) if so, how do I get it to paste right next to the original image/object?
