Flummoxed Newb - No Actions in Context Menu
« on: March 03, 2017, 12:39:42 PM »
I'm new to Visio actions.

When I download an example showcasing Actions in the context menu, they appear just fine.

When I try to create my own actions, no actions appear in my context menu.

I have:

-Tried several different formulae in the "Action" column, in case it must be a valid formula.  (I've tried my own as well as copied working formulae from downloaded examples)
-Ensured the "View Sections" menu has "Actions" checked (As a matter of fact, I chose "show all"
=Tried several different menu names to ensure nothing was wrong here

I'm flummoxed.  Any ideas?

Hard to know what you've done, can you upload an example?  Note:  vsd, not vsdx format will get more responses.

Sounds to me like the master shape contains multiple shapes and when the shape is dropped on the page these shapes get grouped so the shape with the actions is in a sub-shape.

Paul, that may have been it.
Regardless, I stopped encountering the issue and I'm now way, way out in action-land.

Thanks much
