Lock the ports on the perimeter of the master shape
« on: July 05, 2022, 03:37:01 PM »
Hello

I was wondering if it is possible to have create a master shape that allows me to move a connection around its perimeter(See that attached picture).
 
 
 

I was trying to use some IF FUNCTIONs, but I cant lock my x direction completely.

Example--> =IF(PinX<7 in,0,1)
where 7 represents my max distance(positive x direction) . when i use the IF function,  My connection keep moving after 7 in, and i cant move it  to the original position.
My connection can return to the original position when this moves less than 7 in.

I don't know how to create that restriction around the perimeter of the master shape. I am new using Visio, and I don't have experience with Macros/VBA, but I just need an idea of how i can start working in this project.
