Force Subshape Cells to NOT inherit from Master
« on: October 13, 2017, 07:37:20 AM »
So I created a master: connector and textblock grouped, with the textbox PinX and PinY referenced to the pointalongpath (0%) of the connector. When I insert the master onto the sheet, the group formulas are local, but the subshape (textbox) values are inherited. This causes the textbox to not move as desired.

If I open the subshape's shapesheet and just enter and exit the PinX, PinY, LocPinX, formulas, everything works as desired... but this means I have to do this for every subshape, and each relevant formula within that subshape... every time I insert the master! This seems tedious.

How do I force a subshape's formulas to be local upon inserting a master shape?? Can I specify which subshape formulas should become local?

Try guard()

cell = guard(<my formula>)
