Over the past year, I have purchased MS Visio 4 different times using Volume Licensing Services.

When I look in the Volume Licensing Services website, it shows that each of the keys has 50 activations available.

A couple of the purchases were for multiple users.

How do I track if I still have licenses available?, since my understanding is:

1) The same user can install MS Visio on both their laptop and desktop and only require one seat.
2) The totals are activations and not users. So If I purchase a new computer for a user, and install the same key on their new computer, it now shows as a 2nd activation even though only 1 license is required.

For example, one purchase was for 2 user licenses. I can see that the activation count is 2, but is that a laptop and desktop for the same user or 2 separate user installs.

In Visio, is it possible using vba to show a layer at different levels of transparency (one after the other until the layer is fully visible)?
thanks

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

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?
