Is there a way to display shape data when converting a visio to PDF?

Not that much in a PDF, but in an HTML file:

It's possible if you have Acrobat Standard installed on your computer. Attached is a sample visio file with a macro in it. Macro will save the visio file as pdf in the same directory, then it will read all shape data for each shape on each page and it will write them to comment boxes on the pdf and put them on shape locations.

My test environmet is Visio 2013 Pro, Acrobat XI Standard and visio drawing is in metric units.

Feel free to ask if you face any problems.
