I had this question after viewing Visio to jpg/png/gif -- Batch convert?.

Trying to run this code but coming up with an error on "Set doc = Documents.OpenEx(PathFileName, visOpenHidden)"

I am still trying to learn vba codes and think this may be something simple but I can’t seem to figure this out. I’m converting .vsdx instead of .vsd files but I made the change in the code to look for the correct files and still run into this error.

Hi everyone,
First, thank you to all who offer up suggestions and advice to fellow I.T professionals. We all have different areas of expertise and experience so it is great to have a go-to area to seek answers & explanations, and also to hopefully help our peers.

I have a Visio 2010 Std application created on my SCCM 2012 server. I have been tasked with changing the product key it uses to activate on initial install. I don't want to change current installations, just use this new key for any new deployments.

I have it configured to use an MSP file with all of my customizations applied, including product key. What is the most appropriate way to go about changing the key to a different one? I have attempted simply editing the MSP to include the new key, but the application seems to still install using the old one. Do I make a new application and call it a day? Or should I be able to update my key without any issues?

Thanks so much in advance.

Here is Visio 2013. when drawing a line on its page, the line can be long 10 cm. but sometimes the line cannot be increased a little or decreased a little bit. for example the line 10 cm cannot be 9.8 or 10.2. I think this is resolution issue. How can we change or increase the resolution? Thank you

In MS Visio (I guess its Visio 2016 but don't know for sure because I can't find the spot that tells you the version), I am attempting to use rounded corner shapes but don't see any options for that. Can someone let me know how to create rounded corner shapes? I've done some leg work by googling the topic but am not finding anything helpful.

Thanks

Hi
Experts!

I’m trying to download Visio Studio 2012 for desktop, but I’m failing on this link http://microsoft.com/visualstudio/downloads. Is there anyone with unbroken links, kindly share with me, I understand it’s free.

The purpose of the above is to create a window form that will be used to insert data into an MS access database, C# is able to do this properly, by using an insert SQL.

Regards

Greetings Experts,

The background of what I'm trying to do is, I am a Technical Author who has just started a new job and I have inherited some files from the previous author. I'm using Visio. He used a lot of screen shots with labels that point to various parts of the user interface when a particular step in a task is made. There are currently two separate lines, one in red and one in white, the white is used to show up when the line goes over the user interface which is a dark gray, the theory being I guess that if it were black it would get lost visually against the user interface. He has labels that go with these lines that are labelled step 1, 2, 3 etc.

Currently the two lines are sperate, which means a lot of fiddling about when I have to move them. I'd like them to be grouped together, preferably with a drop shadow that would look nicer. Also I'd like a way to snap the 1,2,3 lables to a grid so that they all line up and look neat - I'm currently having to do this by eye.

It's just all taking a lot of time fiddling about and I'm thinking there's got to be a better way that looks better visually too. I can send a screen shot but not sure how to do it on here, it wouldn't let me when I posted the question.

I'm hoping I've described this well, if not please let me know if you need further clarification. I think if I sent you a screen shot it would help convey what I mean better.

Thanks,

Clare

I am trying to install Microsoft Office 2016 Professional and Microsoft Visio 2016 Standard on a Windows 10 PC.  The installation for both fails with the message "Couldn't install" and gives Error Code: 30125-1011 (403).  This PC used to have Microsoft Office 2010 Professional installed on it, but it has been completely removed by doing a program uninstall.  I also ran the Microsoft Office Uninstall tool (o15-strremove.diagcab) AND manually deleted all keys in the registry under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office.  I tried
 the suggestions on this page: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/error-code-30125-4-or-30125-1011-when-installing-office-7bfabec6-76be-4cde-880e-819a9c569612, except bringing the PC to another location to attempt the install - which is not possible.  I have turned off my third-party anti-virus & firewall protection (Kaspersky Internet Security).  I've rebooted countless times after each attempted solution, but it still refuses to install.  I am at a loss as to the cause or resolution.  Any ideas?

I know very little about vba. But am trying to tweak a macro for visio.

I want to tweak text but can't find anything on this:
 
            ' set font size and color, text alignment, border, fill and shadow
            .Cells("Char.Size").Formula = "10 pt"
            .Cells("Char.Color").Formula = 0     ' black
            .Cells("Para.HorzAlign") = 0         ' left justify
            .Cells("LinePattern").Formula = 0    ' none
            .Cells("FillPattern").Formula = 0    ' none
            .Cells("ShdwPattern").Formula = 0    ' none

1) Is there a table  that lists what numbers to use to change HorizAlign to get centered?

2) What if I wanted to bold the text?

3) there's a line after these for text (it's a table of contents):   .Text = arrPages(i, 1) & vbTab & CInt(arrPages(i, 2))

I'd love for the space between the page name and page number to be dotted  like:   Licenses.. . . . . . . .3

Do you know how I could get that?

Any idea why I can't find much about this on the web? I was googling cells syntax vba and pasting these lines into google. Didn't come up with anything.

Thanks!

Thanks to someone here and finding another script on the web, I realize I'd like parts from both of these scripts.  

The script that Scott wrote / posted in:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29090658/Is-there-a-way-to-make-a-dynamic-table-of-contents-page-in-Visio.html#a42510143

sorts alphabetically, which I realized, I really need.  But puts each entry in separate text boxes.

The script I found in:

http://www.stephen.turbek.com/articles/2007/04/automatically-create-table-of-contents.html

Sorts by page number and puts all the text in a single text box / easier for me to format text, etc.
Sub table_of_contents_creator()
'this macro creates a table of contents in a visio document by
'going through the pages in the document and adds the page number and page title

'by stephen turbek s@stephenturbek.com
'written for use in microsoft visio 2003 SP1

'adapted from http://www.greenonions.com/tocscript
'I added allowing user to select a text box and replace the contents, rather than build lots of little boxes
'this way you can style the text easily, and simply replace the contents when you update the doc
'note: this is my first VB script

' define a shape to use for the Table of Contents (TOC)
Dim TOCEntry As Visio.Shape

'get selection
Dim selectedShapes As Selection
Set selectedShapes = ActiveWindow.Selection

'is any shape selected to put the ToC in?
If selectedShapes.Count > 0 Then
    'take the selected shape to put the table of contents in

Upgrade your Question Security!

When I knew very little about visio, in making network docs, I would jam way too much on 1 drawing, thinking I had to make an entire different file with a 2nd page.  DUH!

So I know a little more and love the seperate pages and being able to have a common background on all of them, etc.

Now, is there a way to make a table of contents page? A first page that lists the name of each page in the file?  Maybe updates automatically?  When you add another page / rearrange the order of pages, this page auto updates?

Hi I have to do system architecture diagrams for environment

Its very documentation heavy, have to cover VMware, Active Directory, 2008R2 forest mode and on premise Exchange 2010

Is there any guidelines people would recommend i realise its a general query

For instance are there free tools that provide mapping which i can use with visio

I have seen the free stencils Veeam provide and they look good

I am looking to do high level overview then go a bit deeper and also include support documentation which will be a lot more straightforward

Any pointers appreciated

Hello,

I am working with Visio and creating Process Flow Diagrams, not a problem there.

When the Process Diagrams are complete, I capture the full Process Flow as an image using the "Snipping Tool" and place the image(s) in a document.

Some of the text within the various process boxes is a little grainy and this is the issue I am trying to resolve.

Is there a way I can get a sharper and crisper image of these Process Flows between capturing them in Visio and placing them as images within a Word Document?

Recently upgraded to Visio 2013 where there are now photo placeholders when using the org chart wizard. This was not the case with Visio 2010. How do I get rid of the placeholders which I don't have room for with a 475+ assoc org chart. I want the simple no frills/text only version and I would like to alphabetize the document. Any tips for quickly learning the new version would also be helpful.

Hello,
I have an Auto-CAD .dwg that I would like to edit in Visio 2016.  I can convert it but the only thing I can do is move the entire layer with walls and tanks instead of individual shapes.  I've checked witht he person who created this and they assured me the .dwg is not locked and is editable.  Ultimately I would like to be able to move around the shapes to see if there is a better configuration.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Hey guys, Im on a new project in my company and I need to make some things in Visio 2016.

I want to write a vba code that create a property in shape data and then fill it with the container's shape name. Is there possible?

Ive already wrote a code that creat a property "Setor" in all shapes on the page, but I need to fill this property with the name of a container the shapes are into.

The code that Im using is this:

Private Sub Setorizacao()

Dim visShape As Visio.shape
Dim visPage  As Visio.Page



Set visPage = ActivePage

For Each visShape In ActivePage.Shapes
   
   If visShape.CellExists("LockWidth", False) Then
   
   Call InitSetor(visShape)
   
   End If
   
   Next
   
   
           
End Sub

Sub InitSetor(ByRef shape As Visio.shape)

' Create Prop.Setor if they don't exist; set both fields to null

    If Not shape.CellExistsU("Prop.Setor", False) Then
        shape.AddNamedRow visSectionProp, "Setor", visTagDefault
    End If
    shape.CellsU("Prop.Setor").FormulaU = ""
    shape.CellsU("Prop.Setor.Label").FormulaU = Chr(34) & "Setor" & Chr(34)
   
   
End Sub



Thank you in advance.

Hi ,

We migraded our KMS volume license server to a new server (2012R2) and 2013 project and 2013 visio are not activating.
Office 2013 and windows are fine , visio 2016 and project 2016 are also activated straight after a new install.
The only differents i see is that the office 2016 suit is standing in active directory based activation part of the volume licence managment tool.

Office 2013 and visio 2013 and project 2013 have the same key.
Any idea's?
thanks

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.
