Hi,

I've modified.
Effect=0 and LAYOUT=1 makes simple shapes.

Hi,

Heavy shape with effect can be manualy compressed with hard work in menues, Union and Send to Back.
I've tried to make hard work into automation, but not yet done.
The problem is how to choose the shapes to Union.

Yoda-san,

Thanks! I was able to use the Effect=0, but am not able to use Layout=0. I get the following error: "Layout musy be 1 thru 40".

If I use it with Effect=0 and Layout=1 - I do get a pretty good result. 8^)

Hi,

To compress heavy shapes, I've made a macro.
It simply Union and Send to back fine fragment shapes.
It is not a complete program, but it is tuned up,
and added function to automatically add menus for
compress to the new shapes to compress.
This test macro saves about 60% of resources.

Hi,

My main PC has recovered and I found that the effects on the macro above
do not work correctly in Visio2007.
This is the macro that just paste WordArt as EMF picture on Visio page.
This new macro does not convert WordArt into Visio geometry.
If you answer yes to the last message, you can trim the blank space around
WordArt with crop tool.

By the way, the metafile made by WordArt is mysterious.
How is it constructed?

Hi,

Above Visio-WordArt 2.vsd was modified and replaced.
Some part of WordArt pictures were cut out.
And then program is modified and improved, but I am sorry it is not yet perfect.

Hi,

One of the application may be to make a shape like a flag.

Hi,

Visio-WordArt 2.vsd is now more improved.
Some options that are seen in WordArt are added.
Width and Height are the size of the shape in inches.
LEFT and TOP are the text starting point in inches
from the left and top of the shape.

Hi,

I've updated Visio-WordArt.
Now, all WordArt images are converted to Visio shapes.

This is the version of simplified 3d-shadows,
for effect numbers, 19, 24 through 29.
These shadows are now single shape.
Their shadows are mono-tone, but very light in file size.
DrawRegion method is used to unify thousand of shapes.
It takes several minutes to process unifying shapes.
My PC sometimes stopped due to the shortage of resources.

Hi,

Above Visio file is updated again and replaced.
Now, effect number 18 is modified to simple shadow because it is also 3d-shadow.

Hi,

I've written about my study of problem and solution
when I was making WordArt on Visio drawing
and converting WordArt object to Visio shape.
It is here.

Thanks Junichi for a really great effort in creating the macros and explaining your history in working on the problem on your web site.

This is really cool to have for all of us!

Hi,

This is the version of EMF 3-d shadows.
Text faces are Visio shapes, but 3-d shadows are EMF images.
Now, 3-d shadows look like 3-d.
The point of this program is to match exactly the size and the location
 of the text shapes and 3-d shadows.
In order to smooth the edges of the text,
lines were added to some of the shapes.
