we have citrix environment and some users are facing below issue


Visio/Excel - I am Unable to Save documents.  Frequently when editing diagrams I have found myself unable to save/save-as.  Attempting to select "This PC" often results in the application failing to respond and never
allowing me to choose where I would like to save the document.
 
Visio - When attempting to edit the size of the drawing area, the application hangs for a moment and then displays options in either corrupted text, or attempts to display another language.
 
Outlook - Constant freezes when simply scrolling through my inbox or the body of an email.  Opening, Editing, or Sending meeting invites causes frequent freezes.  
Unable to manage inbox as selecting more than 20 or so objects at a time causes the entire application to freeze.  When organizing emails by sender and simply clicking on the header for the group, application freezes.
regarding the 3rd point, is it because 32 bit application of office can do on 64 bit computer.

Experts,

I have a need to insert a visio document into a word document programmatically what is the easiest way to do this?

A snippet of my code is as follows:

#Create word Instance
$merged_Object = ""|TitleHeadingBar
$Merged_Object.TitleheadingBar = "Test"
$Word = New-Object -ComObject Word.Application
#Make Word Visible
$Word.Visible = $True
#Create Blank Document
$Document = $Word.Documents.Add()
#Create Selection object
$Selection = $Word.Selection

#Alignment Options:
$Alignment = ""|Select Center,Left,Right
$Alignment.Center = "1"
$Alignment.Left = "0"
$Alignment.Right = "2"

#Create Content
$Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = "$($Alignment.Center)"
$Selection.Font.Bold = 1
$Selection.Font.Italic = 1
$Selection.Font.Underline = 1
$selection.TypeText("$($Merged_Object.TitleHeadingBar))")

Open in new window


I Thought I might be able to do the following, but it fails with


$selection.InsertFile("C:\worddoc\wordmerge\Drawingvsdx.vsdx")

Open in new window


Word has encountered a problem.
At line:1 char:1
+ $selection.InsertFile("C:\worddoc\wordmerge\Drawingvsdx.vsdx")
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I try to download a template in MS Publisher, a list of templates appears under Visio.   When I try to download a template, an error message pops up saying "something went wrong while downloading your template".

Cleanse all exiting shape data
I have created a Visio that uses external data and now want to reuse this with some adaption to new data i will be importing. Does anyone have code that would remove all shape data from all shapes within the document. It has thousand of shapes so doing by hand is not a viable option

Thanks in advance

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 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!

I am building a network diagram using Visio 2016.  I have created a data graphics that I want to show some information about the server to the left.  What I am trying to do is bring the text closer to the server, but not inside the server.

Below is a screenshot of my shape and data graphic.

Below is a modified screenshot of what I would like to accomplish.

Is there a way to bring the text in the data graphic closer to the server shape?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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).

Experts out there is there any way to fix the size without re-drawing it?

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.

Another day, another question. I'm enjoying this but it is very challenging! I guess thats why this website is here?!

I'm using DOCMD(1312) to get my users to enter data and then have some of this data appear in the shape's text field. Each time they double click they also have the option to "define shape data" but I would really like to prevent the user from doing this.

An option for "protect defined shape data" or "protect user from defining shape data" would be perfect. Any ideas??

Thanks in advance.

Is there a way I can ask the user to enter Document shape data when first starting a document using a custom template? I would like to do this without macros and using shapesheet if possible but if not then its not the end of the world.

I have given the document some user defined shape data cells (eg. Document number, document date, author etc.) and then displayed this info in a number of shapes across the various pages of the document. I've referenced TheDoc! data in the shape cells on each page and set "askondrop" to true in the document shape data but this has not worked as i thought it might.

Thanks in advance.
