Thank you Paul, I will give that a try.

Select the OPR shape, open its shapesheet and scroll down to the Hyperlinks section, add a new row, then add the details of the new shape you wish to link to.
This is purposely a high-level description of what you need to do.

A little confused as to what you want. 

Your examples are typical ribbon / menu bar items.  You can do customization for most common/frequent used commands.  The benefit is that they are always a available from any page in the Visio document.  Any other approach would be less convenient.

Wireframing and UI Prototyping / OPR one to many, is it possible
« Last post by SmTownGal on June 21, 2017, 09:41:09 AM »
I am exploring a new way to write design specs using Off Page Reference master page.
From what I know OPR is a one to one.
My intention is to reduce the redundant page elements entries to one master page. So, for example there is a Home button on five administrator pages and on three external user pages. Instead of entering the Home Button description eight times, I insert an OPR number that navigates to one descriptor that is located on a master page.
Examples of the content in my intended master pages in my spec document- one page of DropDownList descriptors & ids, another page of common Navigation Buttons (Home, Cancel, Reports, Search) and Links (reset password, about,contacts).
Is it possible to have a one to many off page reference within Visio?

Suggestion Box / Re: A short survey about Visio learning and certification
« Last post by wapperdude on June 21, 2017, 09:21:14 AM »
Hi David,

Interesting survey.  Seemed like question 1 needed one more entry...regularly create shapes, stencils and/or templates.
Also, there is another category of user...experienced power user, consultant/contributor.

Other than the above mentioned, nit-picky, comments, the survey struck me as rather complete. 

Oh, perhaps add notification so that once  the submit button pushed, a thank you splashes up to let the user know the process is complete and finished.

Cheers!

Suggestion Box / A short survey about Visio learning and certification
« Last post by bVisual on June 21, 2017, 05:47:56 AM »
This forum is a great place for some Visio users and developers to discuss topics, but I wish that Microsoft still had exams for various levels of Visio expertise.
This would bolster personal CVs and I think they should count towards one or more competencies for Microsoft partners. I have constructed a short survey to test my proposition. Please visit  https://blog.bvisual.net/2017/06/21/a-short-survey-about-learning-visio for more information.

Shapes & Templates / Re: change the connection point distance from shape in general
« Last post by vojo on June 20, 2017, 02:42:01 PM »
Paul...I understood that intent was to have this task at some global level (change all shapes the same way)

However, if each connector needs to change differently (distance and / or angle away from connection point) I don't really see how this could be done even with automate

some sort of excel spreadsheet for distances used for shape X vs shape Y???...possible seems like a lot of work

If its really more of "want to mess with each connector", then as Yacine pointed out, could do all kinds of things
at the per connector level.

A silly idea ... why not change the connector?

Hi all,

I'm quite a beginer in Visio and strugle to find a way to represent in a pragmatic way a number of Enterprise Applications and the relations between them.
The task to do is to represent the ~30 applications and the relations between them, about 90 connections.

The file that describes these relations is an excel with the following 3 columns:
* Source System (eg. :  Navision)
* Target System (eg.: JetReports)
* Description of relation: Import of invoices

I have available Visio 2013 Professional. I guess that it should be possible to generate such a map but I have a hard time in how to approach this.

Any suggestion of tool, or approach would be more than welcomed.

Many thanks!
Bogdan
