Visio 2003 XML Schema Question
« on: March 10, 2009, 06:13:34 PM »

We have an application that parses the VDX format for graph path analysis. So I am aware of <Shapes> and <Connect> elements. I am interested in annotations, and I have checked, but do not see how to determine which shape is the annotation touching. Our visio template is using annotations instead of custom properties to decorate a shape, so in our custom reporting, we would like to associate the annotation text with the shape that it is touching. Any help is appreciated.

FromSheet shows the ID of annotation shape.
ToSheet shows the ID of connected shape.
