These two items have now been updated to make them work with 64-bit as well as 32-bit Visio, and added application icons and other tidy ups.
I hope these are useful.
General Visio / Visio 2003: Hiding Toolbar not persistent
« Last post by visiofox on July 20, 2018, 06:33:56 AM »
Hello again,

two PDF toobars are shown. When I hide these, they are shown again when I restart Visio. That's really annoying. Any hints are highly appreciated!

Many thanks and greetings
Business Process Modeling / Re: Export Visio to Excel?
« Last post by Clochette204 on July 20, 2018, 03:34:26 AM »
Can you please expand on your answer?

I am trying to:
1) create Cross functional flowchart from an Excel Sheet (that works)
2) adjust the layout of the flowchart manually if necessary (beauty purposes  8))
3.1) EITHER make modification on the flowchart, then export the data in Excel (i.e. the same type of data that were initially imported)
3.2) OR make modification in the Excel, then update the flowchart (e.g. to add new swimlanes; move shapes from one swimlane to another; update text, update type of shape, etc.)

Unfortunately, I can't make 3.1 or 3.2 work.

In 3.1, I found the option to export flowchart report (Review-->Shape reports --> Flowchart) but it doesn't export all necessary information (such as Process Step ID, Description, Next Step ID, Connector Label, Shape Type).

And in 3.2, it doesn't update/change for instance Swimlanes (for instance in the first table, I had Functions A, B, and C, and in the next one I replaced the swimlanes with C, D, E).

Any help would be much appreciated  :)
General Visio / Re: Loading Templates disturbes Formula

That fixed the issue. And this approach seems to be way nicer. Thank you!

   Huh!  Never heard of the option before.  Pretty cool.  And it did the trick!  Ya learn something new every day.

   (And pardon the quibble, but logically speaking I could not “forget” something I never knew...  ;- )

   Of course I had to play with it, and noted that it refuses to allow sel.IterationMode = visSelModeSkipSuper + visSelModeOnlySuper.  Ditto for SkipSub and OnlySub.  “Invalid parameter,” it tells me.  Indeed.

   Regardless, it’s now another arrow in my increasingly-overcrowded Visio quiver.  Thanks muchly!

You forgot to tell Visio to select sub-shapes:

    Set sel = ActiveWindow.Selection
    sel.IterationMode = visSelModeSkipSuper
    for each shp in sel ...
   Okay, here’s another one:

1.  Take two shapes and group them.
2.  Select the group, and ActiveWindow.Selection.Count=1.
3.  But select only one of the shapes inside the group, and (as the title implies) ActiveWindow.Selection.Count=0, even though a shape is surely selected.

   What am I missing?  How can you know when a sub-shape alone is selected?  How can I access its shapesheet?

Shapes & Templates / Re: Is there a good street map stencil available?

I agree with you that the map stencils are (at least in Visio 2013) very poor.
A tool as expensive as Visio should provide better ones.

But this is not a problem, because you can easily create your own shapes. I had an hour to play, check the attachment (vsd).

Shapes & Templates / Is there a good street map stencil available?

Is there a good map stencil available?  The built-in one is lousy; just plain black lines, it seems.  Very deceiving, because the stencil shapes show a lot more detail.  I've looked around a lot and can't seem to find any good Visio street map stencils.
