Edit Icon Image not working?
« on: November 27, 2012, 04:02:02 PM »
I went in to edit an icon image, but it does not actually change the icon.  I tried exiting Visio, but when I opened back up, the icon still looked like the shape and not how I had edited it.  But if I go into Edit Icon image, you can still see my edited version... I thought it just used to make the changes on the fly as I edited and when I clicked the "X" in the upper right corner, the icon was changed... is there some sort of "save" I need to do in 2010?

Thanks!

Have you got 'Show live preview in Shapes Window' checked in the master's properties dialog?  Using live preview overrides the icon.

Have a look at Chris' post on the subject:

Yep, That's it!  They changed the wording on me and I didn't realize that was the problem.  ::)

Thanks!
