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?

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?

Hi,
Trying to find out where is shape name in Visio 2016 , I really need to know this to create a hyperlink to the specific shape.

I have many times embedded .vsdx Visio drawing into a (existing or new) Word document through "Insert" > "Object" > "Create from File" and have never encountered any problem.
Then recently on two PC's I encounter:
 Error messageThe program used to create this object is Visio.
That program is either not installed on your computer or it is not responding.
To edit this object, install Visio or ensure that any dialog boxes in Visio are closed.


Same drawing saved as .vsd (instead of .vsdx) in Visio 2013 can be embedded without any problem, so that is what I do as "work-around".

Scenario is two different Windows 7, both with Word 2016 (click-to-run installed) from Office 365 and Visio 2013 (.msi installed).
Same Visio 2013 (15.0.4569.1506) on both PCs.
Word 2016 included in Office update channel "Insider Fast", Version 1703 (Build 7920.1000), (new Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus - en-us Version 16.0.7920.1000 on one PC, and Word 2016 included in Office update channel "Current", Version 1701 (Build 7766.2060), Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus - en-us Version 16.0.7766.2060 on other PC.

I've tried repairing both Visio and Office, "quick" as well as "Online", and in both sequences, but problem persists.
I've tried removing and reinstalling both Visio and Office, but problem persists.
Unfortunately I cannot tell what has "changed since last time it worked", so a "fallback" is not possible.

Of course searching the Internet finds many possible solutions …

I think this is possible with Excel, but don't know how to.
I have a sheet listing all server information and rack position. Then I have to position them in rack cabinet in another spreadsheet. How can I do this? Also, is it possible to generate network and server connection diagram with Excel, maybe using Visio or any free tool?

For example, I have this in excel
1.png
Then, I'm trying to generate another excel sheet based on the data for rack view.
3.png
Notice the position# in rack could be used as linking point to draw the rack view.

Hello,

I would like to know the benefit of having Visio Professional to draw a BPMN diagram.
I am using Visio Standard 2013 and I have the BPMN template and the stencil so I would like to know what other features are included in the Visio Pro.

Hello,

I want to disable the left click behavior in full screen mode. I have created drawn a BPMN diagram with many pages, there are hyperlinks for the figures so I do not want click in the page to go to the next page. I would like to change the page only if someone clicks on the figure.
I read on the forum that one solution was created a hyperlink to the same page in the PageSheet, but it is not the best solution. My page does not cover the whole screen so there are some areas where there is not hyperlink.

Do you know any solution?

Running Visio 2010....whenever I go to Home  > Connector and connect two shapes, the connector defaults to a "Right Angled Connector" which is really annoying...I want straight lines

Is there a way to change the default setting?

Hello,

I have Visio page with multiple Layers. I often use the "Fit to Drawing" button to adapt the page size to the shapes. It only works when I show all the layers. If I hide some layers, the "Fit to Drawing" button does not recognize it and it takes the same size as if all layers are active. I want to show it in full screen and people would not recognize the shapes if the layers are active.
I upload three pictures to explain my question.

Is there a solution? Can I create a VBA macro to change it?

Thank you.
