delete shape data for multiple shapes
« on: July 03, 2019, 11:25:31 AM »
Hello,
I have an Excel sheet connected to my Visio file. The main purpose is to display shape data in the shape data window. I sometimes change the Excel sheet order/name of columns, and delete/add columns. There seem to be no perfect way of refreshing these columns so the shape data is updated. For instance if I change the order of columns, I cannot see a way how this can be updated to all my shapes. It's one main page with hundreds of them, and then a few in some other pages.
The only way I can see to solve this is to delete data and refresh. I'm ok with that, but the main problem seem to be that I cannot delete shape data for more than one shape at a time.

If I select several shapes (only one works) and choose SuperUtils - Shape(s) - Delete - Shape Data, a message appear saying 'Select one or more shapes to delete data from.'
This seems like a bug to me. Any suggestions?

BR /Magnus
