Title: ShapeSheet Search
Post by: Visio Guy on August 30, 2013, 08:36:31 AM
I would like to be able to search for cell names, expressions in cells, etc. The trace dependents/precedents feature is great, but it is still hard to find things that you know or suspect are present.

A search for all REF errors would be very valuable in maintaining shapes as well.

Check out the shiny ShapeSheet Watch tool ;)
Now full-text search (in formulas, values, cell names, etc) is supported:

Looks pretty cool. How would I install it on a windows 7 / Visio 2007 machine?
I installed the ShapeSheetWatch_2013_11_x64.msi, but can't see any menu or macro to run. I must have missed something.

If you have Visio 2007, please install "x86" version.  You should get a toolbar with a new button :)

The x64 version is for Visio x64 bit (x64 edition exists only for Visio 2010/2013)

Means

"x86" version:

- Visio 2003
- Visio 2007
- Visio 2010
- Visio 2013

"x64" version:
- Visio 2010 x64
- Visio 2013 x64
