Title: Creating a shape search location
Post by: alexburn on September 08, 2010, 04:11:22 AM
We are using Visio 2003 & 2007.
We have a variety of shapes within various stencils within various folders, but as the number of shapes increases, finding the required shape is becoming increasingly tiresome.

I understand that the Visio Shape Search Web Servers have been discontinued, but it is still possible to find shapes on the local machine (although not reliably). However, all our stencils are hosted in a shared (mapped) network location (Y://Visio/Stencils...).

Is it possible to set this location as a Visio Shape Search location (instead of the default Internet location)?

Thanks in advance.

Is there no solution this?
