Shapes & Templates / Re: How do I import a shape from illustrator?
« Last post by berrick on Today at 03:39:50 AM »
Hi All,

So I have been playing around some more and the only way I can get the text to scale is to use the info found here http://www.visguy.com/2009/05/06/top-twelve-text-tips/ Tip 11.

I thought text should scale without the need for something like this as the file is in svg?

Am I going to have to do this for every bit of text I use in my shape  :o ?

I have attached the file I'm using as a test as saved from illustrator

I finally figured out how to test if a drawing page is Metric or US-units!

Any chance we can see the image?  There might be an alternative that word fail to provide.

That is certainly because Illustrator has more effects than SVG supports

Is what I thought. However as a test I created a basic file consisting of a rectangle with flat fill. Inside this I had a rectangle with rounded corners and some text inside it.

It still gave same errors. However I ignore errors and it looks OK apart from the fact that text doesn't scale  >:(
This is most likely because I am not really sure of what I'm doing regards visio.

So question is how do I import and keep text at right size and allow it to scale in visio?

If there are any tutors on how to do this I would appreciate links.

many thanks

Either use less fancy effects or do a complicated export as bitmap, then vectorize back (in Illustrator? or Inkscape).

Thanks for the reply. I have already tried this but I get an error and the log file contains many entries as below

Code: [Select]
[Information] DataType: Element <path>
Context: Line 21
Description: Unsupported attribute type clip-rule. Attribute ignored.


The resulting image is horrible. I just went with the default svg settings when saving in illustrator

A usual trigger would be the push of a button.
Create one and in its click event call the desired sub.

sub myButton_Click(...?)
  myRoutine
end sub

Illustrator is a vector graphic program. It should be able to export to SVG. The SVG can then be imported into Visio.

Hi All,

I hope I have posted in the right place.

I have created an image in illustrator of a piece of network equipment which I have tried to get into visio Pro 2010 but everything I try fails to import it correctly.

Am I better trying to create this shape in visio rather than importing from illustrator cs6?

I'm looking for guidance/link on how to do any of this as I don't know how to create shapes in visio etc. I suspect this is where most of my problems stem from.

TIA

Programming & Code / Fill selected shapes property value with a VBA form text value
« Last post by Gustavo on November 17, 2017, 06:15:16 PM »
Hi all

I'm trying to make a macro that fill some selected shapes property cells value, with the value of a VBA form text field. All instances of the same master shape. For that I've tried to modify a little bit code from this post from VisioGuy http://visguy.com/vgforum/index.php?topic=57.msg183#msg183 in a class module, but how do I call it from a VBA form? Please point me in the right direction.

Best regards.
